Admissions Consulting and tutoring are programs subject to student participation and attendance. You agree that Mavin Learning Resources offers no guarantee of any kind, whatsoever.
All fees, once paid, are neither refundable nor transferable.
ARRIVAL AND DISMISSAL POLICY
You agree that Mavin Learning Resources is not responsible for the student once the student leaves Mavin Learning Resources’s premises. Mavin Learning Resources will not hold a student on its premises against the student’s will, even if a parent/guardian is not present to pick-up the student.
Sessions may be rescheduled, but “no show” absences cannot be made up.
Once your Tutoring service package runs out, we will contact you for possible renewal.
CANCELLATION OF LESSONS BY CLIENT/STUDENT
The Client/Student may cancel tuition/lessons by giving at least 24 hours prior notice to the Tutor in which case no tuition fees will be incurred. Lessons not attended by the student without giving 24 hours prior notice to the Tutor shall be charged at the full rate.
CANCELLATION OF LESSONS BY TUTOR
The Tutor may cancel lessons by giving 24 hours prior notice to the Client/Student in which case no fees shall be incurred. Where a lesson was prepaid, the Tutor shall reschedule the appointment at a time agreeable to both parties, failing to do so will result in the Client/Student given a refund.
Fees are calculated according to the time stipulated in the schedule and no adjustment shall be made for time lost because of late arrival by the Student. Students who arrive late will only be tutored for the remainder of the scheduled session. There will be no prolonged sessions.
Any lost time because of the late arrival of the Tutor shall be compensated by extending a lesson by mutual agreement and by such an amount of time that was lost.
Students who are not present at the predetermined location when Tutor arrives or who are more than 15
minutes late are considered no-shows. If the Student is a no-show, he or she is still responsible for payment for the tutoring session. No discount or refunds shall be given in respect of lessons not attended by the Student.
Pay-per-session clients must present payment for the session in which he or she was a no-show and the following session in order for tutoring to continue.
Because the nature of the tutoring sessions is to improve academic performance, it is pertinent that the Student attends regularly and on time. If there are 3 or more cancellations, no-shows, or tardies in any 2-month time frame, the client will be charged a $35 Convenience Fee for each 2-month occurrence.
In the event of inclement weather (snow, sleet, hail, flooding, tornado, hurricane, severe thunderstorm) we will leave it up to the discretion of the Client/Student and Tutor as to whether or not a lesson will be held. All clients have the option to use online tutoring as an option in lieu of cancellation due to inclement weather. Please communicate with your tutor on lesson days when there is inclement weather. The Tutor shall reschedule the appointment at a time agreeable to both parties, should lessons be canceled due to inclement weather.
