When a tutor does not visit your home/office or any agreed place in advance for tutoring on a specific day and time without any prior information, this is called uninformed leave. Not more than 1 uninformed leave is allowed in one month.
When a tutor does not visit your home/office or any agreed place in advance for tutoring on a specific day and time after informing you in advance, this is called uninformed leave. Not more than 2 informed leaves are allowed in one month.
You inform immediately if a tutor has asked for the informed leave. We will keep it in our record.
Informed and Agreed Leave/s
A leave that is informed and agreed by both tutor and student is called Informed and Agreed leave. Not more than one informed and agreed leaves are allowed in one month (26 days).
Any emergency leaves are considered non-paid, informed and agreed leaves. However, tutor will have to cover the same number of days in make-up classes. Time, day and date will be agreed mutually by tutor and student/s.
Other non-paid expenses
Non-tutoring charges should be incorporated into the hourly, monthly fee. Travel, parking, prep time or other expenses that you wish to defray to the customer must first be settled in your rates. The mechanism to assess these charges is to adjust your hourly/weekly/monthly fee. Under no circumstances should the tutor be paid directly for any such type of payments.
