Fees, Terms & Conditions
One-to-One & Small Group
11+ Grammar School Entrance Exam Prep - Up to Key Stage 3 (Year 6) + Adult Basic Literacy
From Key Stage 3 (Year 7+) + Business and Dissertation English
Please note that my tuition services have no association whatsoever with any franchise after-school study/education/tuition centres, hence my significantly fairer group fees (i.e. from £12 per hour for groups of five, compared to fees doubling this for similar-sized and often much larger groups). You can also be assured of professional differentiation to meet individual needs, as opposed to rigid adherence to gimmicky programmes at the detriment of missing out on the best of tried and tested methods that meet individual needs more effectively.
The vast majority of my students come to me for one-to-one tuition which tailors lessons to individual needs, resulting in much faster progress. Although I have excellent differentiation skills to meet individual needs in large classes, and would make considerably more profit accepting larger groups, I will only accept groups greater than four if advantageous to the students, i.e. there are common needs that benefit from group-teaching such as preparing same age and/or ability groups for a particular examination, or focusing on a particular area of English.
Lessons take place in my study (in Didsbury) where students can focus without distractions and benefit from my extensive bank of learning resources designed to meet specific individual needs.

Terms and Conditions
"The teacher" is Julia Maine.
"The tutee" is the person receiving the tuition and/or the person responsible for its payment.
These terms and conditions are subject to change without prior notice. Updates will be made available on this page (www.manchesterenglishtutor.co.uk/FeesandTerms.htm).
To continue with further lessons, a copy of these Terms & Conditions will be signed by the tutee and the teacher on completion of the first lesson.
Method of Payment
Reservation of Weekly Slots
In cases where continuous weekly attendance has not been possible, the slot will be re-allocated to another tutee who is able to commit to such attendance. Likewise, in cases where the tutee requires absence for two or more consecutive weeks during term-time, their fixed slot may be re-allocated to another tutee.
In cases where term-time continuous weekly attendance has not been possible, cancellation slots will be offered if, and when, they arise.
Sharing Weekly Slots
The hourly fee per tutee covers the teacher’s time and learning resources for one tutee. Should it be agreed that the main tutee shares his/her reserved slots with a sibling (exceptional circumstances) by alternating weekly attendance, there will be an additional charge of £3 per session to the second tutee to cover the additional learning resources and administration time.
48-Hour Cancellation Policy
If the cancelled lesson is mutually rescheduled within a fortnight (in addition to the usual weekly lesson), only 50% of the cancelled lesson will be charged.
In the rare event that the teacher cancels a lesson 48 hours before the scheduled lesson, an alternative slot will be offered at a 50% discount.
Should a tutee arrive late, for whatever reason, the lesson will still finish at the agreed time, and the full fee will still be payable.
In cases where punctuality is frequently poor, the slot may be re-allocated to another slot where poor punctuality is a lesser inconvenience to the teacher.
for Each Lesson
