Terms and Conditions for Tutors

Registration

All tutors registering with MindFlex has to be a minimum of 18 years old and have passed their GCE “O” Levels or equivalent academic qualification.

Qualifications and Authentication of Documents

All tutors are required to provide accurate information on academic certifications and personal particulars. Clients reserve the right to request for these certifications to be presented for verification at any point of time. Tutors who attempt to deceive clients with fake qualifications and certifications will be reported to the Police.

General Guidelines for Lesson Conduct

All tutors should conduct themselves appropriately in a professional and ethical manner. If the conduct of the tutor is deemed as unsatisfactory, immediate action will be taken to terminate current and future assignments. Here are a list of general guidelines for tuition lessons:

1) If a change of timing is required, please kindly provide at least 48 hours of notice. In the case that this is not possible for example due to a sudden sickness, an MC may be requested from the parent.
2 )Tutors are expected to practice punctuality and not to short-change any timing in tuition lessons.
3) Tutors are prohibited from any physical or verbal abuse to students or parents. This will not be tolerated in any instances
4) Tutors are expected to communicate regularly with parents about the progress of the student

Last Minute Cancellations & Postponement Of First Lesson

If a postponement or cancellation of the first lesson is required, the client is required to inform MindFlex or the tutor 4 hours in advance. If this condition is not met, clients are liable to pay for 50% of the 1st lesson fees in compensation of the tutor’s time and transport costs. MindFlex understands that cancellations could occur due to last minute emergencies, and these will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Late Payment Charges

MindFlex Home Tuition reserves the right to impose a late-payment fee for overdue fees of 1 month or more. The late-payment fees after 1 month will be $50 per 2 weeks (14 Days) of overdue payment after the 1st month of grace period. Other administrative fees may also be charged depending on the resources/time taken to recover the debt. This will be judged on a case-by-case basis.

Example:
Mrs Tan hired a tutor from MindFlex Home Tuition on the 8th January 2019, at $50/Hour, 1.5 Hours, Once A Week. She was due to pay the 1st 2 lesson fees of $150 upon completion of the 2nd lesson (15th January 2019), however she failed to make payment. After repeated reminders within a 1 month grace-period, Mrs Tan did not make payment on the 15th February 2019.

As the payment was not received within 1 month, MindFlex Home Tuition will begin to impose late-payment charges from the 16th February Onwards, of $50 per 2 weeks period. On the 15th March, Mrs Tan finally decided to make payment, however her total charges now are $250 instead of the $150 initially owed as 2 blocks of late-payment fees ($100) have been imposed.

MindFlex Home Tuition also reserves the right to file with the Small Claims Tribunal or take legal action for any debt deemed necessary. As a general guide-line, MindFlex Home Tuition will file with the Small Claims Tribunal if the sum is not received within 3 months of payment, but may also choose to do so at an earlier date if the debt is deemed to be unrecoverable without legal means. The late payment charges will continue to be imposed for every 2 weeks of no payment till the final order of the court is given.
