Please note that my tuition services have absolutely no association with any franchise tuition centres, hence my significantly fairer group fees (i.e. from £14 hourly fee 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 tutees come to me for one-to-one tuition which tailors lessons to individual needs, resulting in rapid 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 tutees, i.e. if 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 home in Didsbury where tutees can focus without distractions and benefit from my extensive bank of learning resources designed to meet specific individual needs.

 

Workplace & Business English

My hourly fee for delivering English lessons to groups in the workplace is £40 plus travel expenses of 50p per mile.  

 

Freelance Classroom Teaching


My fees are negotiable in line with the establishment's lecturer pay policy.

 

Travel


For workplace and classroom teaching I travel a maximum of twenty miles radius of Didsbury for full days' teaching, or ten miles for half days.

 


 

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 & Conditions are subject to change without prior notice. Updates will be made available on this page (www.manchesterenglishtutor.co.uk/FeesandTerms.htm).

 

The First Lesson

The first lesson will be paid at the start of (or before) the first lesson, together with an advance payment for the final one-hour lesson (acting as a deposit for any possible breach of the 48-hour cancellation policy).

 

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


Cash to be paid at the start of each lesson. Bank transfer is accepted provided that the transaction is complete before the lesson begins. No cheques please.

 

Reservation of Weekly Slots


Due to the limited availability of after-school slots, and also the due to the importance of regular attendance for academic progress, continuous weekly slots during this period will only be reserved for tutees who demonstrate a record of continuous weekly attendance.

 

In cases where continuous weekly attendance has not been possible, the slot will be reallocated to another tutee who is able to make the commitment. Likewise, in cases where the tutee requires absence for two or more consecutive weeks during term-time, their fixed slot may be reallocated to another tutee.

 

In cases where  continuous weekly term-time attendance has not been possible, the secured slot will be replaced by cancellation slots 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 secured 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


Cancellations made less than 48 hours before a scheduled lesson will be charged at the full fee except in cases of tutee illness or injury that requires absence from school or work.

 

If the cancelled lesson is rescheduled within a fortnight (in addition to the usual weekly lesson), only 50% of the cancelled lesson will be charged.

 

Punctuality


If a tutee arrives late, for whatever reason, the lesson will still finish at the agreed time and the full fee will still be payable.

 

Parents/guardians are requested to collect their child promptly because late collections:

1

cause children to become anxious waiting for their parent;
2 are disruptive to the next tutee’s lesson;
3 the teacher may have urgent commitments immediately after the lesson and be unable to stay with the tutee.


Discussion regarding a child's progress may take place during the start of his/her lesson time. Alternatively, please message the teacher for a mutually convenient telephone chat.  

 

If punctuality is frequently poor, the slot may be given to someone else.

  

Required for Each Lesson

Please bring to all lessons: completed homework for marking; all previous learning resources in your A4 ring binder file.

 

Copyright


Any resources given to the tutee are subject to copyright and may not be published or distributed.

 

Parking


Owing to the residential nature of the locality, the tutee is requested to park in such a way that enables neighbours to have easy access to their drives at all times.

 

Anything else

Just ask and I will be delighted to assist. For details of my qualifications, experience and fees please follow the links at the top and bottom of each page.
