Holiday breaks

Exceptions will be made with respect to holiday days (Religious and Statutory Holidays in the tutors home country + Students home country). Those days can be rescheduled for different days and will count as regular lessons, not make-up lessons. Please advise your Tutor as soon as you know you will have to miss a lesson due to these previously mentioned breaks. 

If you fail to notify your tutor about having to reschedule due to holidays, the lessons are subject to the lesson cancellation policy and will be considered forfeited.

When your Tutor cancels

In most cases, when your Tutor is unable to attend a lesson, the Tutor or slowczech will communicate with you and coordinate a make-up lesson.

Ending Lessons

  1. When choosing to end lessons with a tutor, you need to provide a 2 week notice period. 
  2. If you’re unable to notify a Tutor with the 2 week notice period, the remaining lessons will be paid for in that month.
  3. If you are ending lessons, have reached the end of a month, but not provided notice to your tutor, then you will be invoiced for up to 2 lessons as a lack of notice fee.

Group Lessons and Mini group lessons

  1. A registration fee of 15% of the group course price is paid in advance. You will not be allowed to join the group course unless the registration fee has been paid.
  2. Once the registration fee is paid, a place for you in the group course is reserved and we will assume that you have read those slowczech lesson policies.
  3. Once the registration fee is paid, we will consider this an act of agreement on your part to join the group course.
  4. Group courses payment (the remaining 85%) is invoiced at the beginning of the group course and needs to be paid within 10 days of being sent.
  5. There are no lesson cancellations, unless all members of the group reach an agreement with the Tutor.
