Are you late for your lesson?
If you call on the day of the lesson, after the reserved lesson time has started, sometimes we can teach you on the phone or on an app like Line, WeChat, Kakao Talk, or Skype, etc (depending on the situation). Lessons start from the reserved time, not from the time the teacher is called.
Usually lesson are 50 minutes but this is an example of a special case.
Example: A reservation is made for a 60-minute private lesson from 3 pm to 4 pm.
1. About 10 minutes after the lesson has started (3:10 pm), the teacher calls the student to check if they are still coming to the lesson or see if the student has forgotten about the lesson reservation.
2. The teacher asks the student if they would like to do today’s lesson over the phone, on Skype, Line, WeChat or another chat program. *If the choice is of taking a lesson is by phone, the student must call the school. As the lesson time has already begun the full lesson fee must be paid.
3. Student can pay at the start of the next lesson, if the next lesson is within a week. Otherwise please pay as soon as possible by bank transfer and send an email stating to which account payment has been made.
As this school is offering lessons at the discount part-time hourly rate paid to teachers at other English schools, the school/teacher will not offer compensation or reimburse the costs of gasoline, parking fees, train or subway tickets, time, or any other related costs, etc. when the school/teacher has to cancel a lesson or a lesson is unable to be taught, due to scheduling mistakes of either party, transportation time changes, or weather, etc.
In the case where a lesson must be cancelled, the school will provide alternate lesson times if available.
