Our confirmation of your order will take place when we email you an explicit Booking confirmation before the commencement of the remedial lessons, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us for the relevant Services. We reserve the right to reject any Booking, for example, due to capacity restraints or the limit of the registration has been reached, up until a Booking confirmation has been provided. If we are unable to confirm your order, we will inform you of this via email and refund any fees paid for such an order. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in respect of a Course Session, we reserve the right to change the date or time of any Course Session by prior notice to you, which we will endeavour to provide at least 24 hours before the Course Session. If your child is unable to attend the lessons due to such a change, a full refund will be given.
There will be no agreement or contract between you and the Tutor/instructor but your rights and obligations relating to the Services are solely between you and us. Our tutors are either employees or independent contractors of Dr Ship Tutoring. Accordingly, you may not during the term of our Services and for a period of twelve months thereafter, directly or indirectly, acquire or solicit to acquire any services directly from the Tutor. Without prejudice to any other remedies being available to us upon such breach, we reserve the right to charge you a fee of up to an amount corresponding to the aggregate compensation paid by us to the Tutor in the last twenty-four months (or if the Tutor has been engaged for a shorter period, the average monthly compensation paid by us to the Tutor multiplied by twenty-four).
It is your responsibility to ensure that your child can join the class, and you are not entitled to any refund if the student does not participate fully, regardless of the reason. No partial or full refund is allowed if your child does not attend the lessons fully or is absent for any day of the remedial lessons.
It is at our discretion to appoint a suitable instructor to lead each session. All our instructors have at least a Bachelor's degree, Master or Ph.D.
The Services will be provided with reasonable skill and care. Where we always strive to unlock students’ potential and maximise their results, we do not make any commitment that the Student will obtain any particular result as a result of the Services.
There may be circumstances that are out of our control in which we need to cancel the lessons.
