If a Contact wishes to engage a Tutor, they may submit a booking request via the Site and/or make arrangements directly with the Company via email or phone. The Introducer shall connect the Contact and the Tutor over email. A Contact may also utilise the “book a tutor” option on the individual Tutor profiles, which will either send an email directly to the Tutor with the Contact’s contact details, or will send an email to the Introducer and the message will be forwarded to the Tutor.
  • Where a Contact is registered on the website, the Introducer may also provide details of Tutor’s that do not have online profiles to Contacts, but shall be under no obligation to do so.
  1. Tutoring Session contract
  • A Tutor may accept a booking for the provision of any service over email, verbally, by phone (text or whatsapp) or other means. When a Tutor accepts a booking, the Tutor must confirm the booking over email within one working day of the agreement and copy in director@sensationaltutors.co.uk. A contract for a Tutor Session is then formed between the Contact and Tutor (“Relevant Agreement”). Each Relevant Agreement will incorporate the provisions of both this clause and clause 10 “Fees and payment” of these Terms and any other terms agreed between the parties in respect of the Tutor Sessions (including but not limited to fees, dates, timings, location, duration, any minimum number of Tutor Sessions which shall be booked, attendance, punctuality, subject matter to be covered, provision of materials, preparation for Tutor Sessions, homework assignments, parent/guardian involvement and any rules which apply on the premises where the Tutor Sessions will take place). Subject to compliance with the Relevant Agreement, Tutors shall use their own teaching equipment and may provide their teaching services from such locations as are appropriate and agreed with the Contact and use their own initiative as to the way in which the tutoring services are delivered. Contacts acknowledge that Tutors are responsible for managing their own schedules and we make no guarantees that Tutors will be available for a requested booking or not subsequently cancel a confirmed appointment. We are not a party to the Relevant Agreement, and in no way liable for the performance of it, or its breach, by any party.
  • Our role is expressly limited to providing the Site and making introductions: we are not a party to any Relevant Agreement, nor the employer and/or main contractor of any Tutor. Contacts and Tutors are responsible for satisfying themselves as to the terms of any Relevant Agreement offered or accepted and as to the suitability of any Tutor’s compatibility with any specific requirements for the session booked. We are simply an intermediary and have no control over and take no responsibility for the teaching or services provided by the Tutors on our Site.  Users acknowledge and agree that they have no right to hold or attempt to hold us liable for a Contact’s or Tutor’s actions, inactions, errors, delays, failures or omissions.
  • Tutor Sessions may be cancelled by either the Contact or Tutor by email or by phone in advance of the session. Any rearrangement of cancelled Tutor Sessions shall be dealt with and agreed directly between the Tutor and the Contact. The Tutor shall notify the Introducer of any cancellations.
  • If you are a Tutor:
  • Registration: To register as a Tutor, you shall provide us with your current DBS Certificate and any other information or documents we may reasonably request to verify you, your teaching credentials and eligibility. We may undertake appropriate background checks such as Complete Background Screening (“CBS”), DBS and qualifications checks. The information you provide shall be true, accurate, current and complete.  If any of the information provided to us by Tutors is misleading, incomplete or inaccurate then we reserve the right to request further information and/or close the Tutor’s account and disable their profile on the Site with immediate effect and without liability.  Before being able to register, Tutors shall also be required to meet in person or by video conference and we may determine in our sole discretion whether the Tutor meets the requisite standards. The Tutor shall sign an Introducer Agreement prior to attending the first session, but shall be deemed to have accepted the terms of that agreement if having registered as a Tutor and/or having attended or provided a first or initial session in any event, whether paid or unpaid.
  • Profile: Tutors shall ensure that their profile displays accurate details regarding the fees charged for Tutor Sessions (exclusive of any commission and VAT). VAT shall be added to invoices sent from the Company to its Tutors. Tutors agree to keep their profiles up-to-date by logging into the Site and making the relevant amendments. The Introducer reserves the right to approve or reject the Tutor’s profile, request the Tutor to submit a new or additional photo/s, add more information to their profile so as to further demonstrate their skills and experience, and to ask the Tutor to request professionals, parents or other individuals to leave reviews and/ or testimonials on their profiles. Tutors shall otherwise comply with the provisions set out in clause 18, 19 and 20 of these Terms.
  • Communication and care: Tutors shall use reasonable endeavours to respond to emails or other communication from the Company in relation to Contacts or potential Contacts within one (1) business day and shall provide Tutor Sessions with all due care and skill and in compliance with these Terms and all applicable statutory and regulatory requirements and standards of best practice.
  • Planning and preparation: Tutors shall plan sessions in accordance with the needs of the individual students. If requested by the Introducer and/or Contact, and as best practise, all planning and progress shall be documented. Unless agreed otherwise, this shall be sent to the parents before and/ or after every session. The Company may, on occasion, request these documents. The Tutor shall share these with the Company upon request within 48 hours.
  • Invoicing: Tutors shall ensure that the Contact has paid by the due date on the invoice. If payment has not been made, the Tutor must follow up with the Contact by email, phone, text or in person at a session to request payment.
  • Tax and NIC: Tutors shall be fully responsible for paying any and all tax including any National Insurance Contributions (“NIC”) arising from carrying out any Tutor Sessions.

The Tutors reserve the right to not attend the Tutor Session if payment is not made accordingly. Please take note that no payments shall be made by the Contact to the Company. 
  • Background checks: While we meet all Tutors in person (including by video) and check that they have a current Disclosure and Barring Service certificate and other relevant qualifications and/or other relevant requirements, we do not guarantee that a Tutor will meet your requirements or expectations. We only verify Tutors as far as we are reasonably able to by undertaking appropriate checks.
  • Concerns: If at any stage you have concerns about the competence, qualifications, suitability or performance of any Tutor, please contact us immediately at director@sensationaltutors.co.uk and we may at our absolute discretion take reasonable steps to investigate the matter and can discuss matching you to another Tutor.
  • Sessions in person and online: Where a Tutor Session takes place at the Tutor’s premises, at any other venue or location (other than the Contact’s premises), via any online video platform, or any other media, the student shall either be accompanied by the Contact or some other responsible adult nominated by the Contact, or the Contact shall be contactable by the Tutor by mobile phone for the duration of each Tutor Session. Where a Tutor Session takes place at the Contact’s premises, the Contact or another responsible adult shall be on the premises throughout the Tutor Session. The Contact shall inform the Tutor before the student attends any Tutor Session of any medical or other condition affecting the student which might be or become relevant in relation to that Tutor Session. All arrangements in relation to sessions in person and online must comply with this clause, and shall be agreed between the Tutor and Contact in advance of the session.
  • The Tutor shall complete planning and assessment documents for the sessions. If requested, these shall be shared with the Contact. The Contact agrees that these may also be shared with the Company upon request.
  • The Tutor and Contact shall communicate directly with each other so as to enable the Tutor to provide the best possible service.
  • Reviews and Testimonials. The Tutor and/or the Introducer may request Contacts, parents, professionals or other individuals to provide reviews and testimonials on the Tutor’s profiles, social media platforms of other platforms. The Introducer reserves the right to make minor amendments and approve the reviews and testimonials prior to publication. The Introducer may use the reviews and testimonials for marketing purposes on the website, on social media platforms and in any other manner they see fit.
  1. Fees and Payment
  • No fees shall be payable in order to register on the Platform as a Tutor or Contact. The Tutors are free to determine their hourly/daily/weekly/ monthly or annual rate. This rate shall be agreed directly between the Contact and the Tutor. The payment of any additional expenses by the Contact shall be agreed between the Contact and the Tutor unless indicated otherwise.
  • In consideration for the provision of its Services, the Company charges the Tutors a commission equal to 25% of the total fee (exclusive of VAT) paid by the Contact for each Tutor Session arranged/booked via our Site (“Commission”). Tutors shall be notified of any changes to the Commission from time to time and any such changes shall only apply to future Tutor Sessions and shall not apply to any Tutor Sessions previously booked and paid for. As a Tutor, you agree to provide us within one working day  accurate information we may request from time to time about the number, length and fees for Tutor Sessions provided.  We may verify this information with Contacts.  We reserve the right to remove Tutors from the Site and notify Contacts as to the reason why, if we are provided with false information by Tutors in relation to sessions. Further action may also be taken, including but not limited to the below.
  • Any payments to Tutors for Tutor Sessions (“Fees”) shall be made at the time of making the booking when an invoice shall be sent by email to Contacts from the Tutors for 100% of the Fees.
  • An invoice shall be issued to the Tutors for the Commission (plus VAT) and the payment to the Company from the Tutors shall be made within 24 hours of any payments made to the Tutors by the Contacts.
  • If a booked Tutor Session is cancelled by the Contact, this shall be dealt with directly between the Tutor and the Contact. Any arrangements regarding the cancellation or rescheduling of a Tutor Session shall be dealt with directly by the Tutor and the Contact.
  • If the Contact is a consumer within the UK or the EU (meaning the parent/guardian of a student who receives services from a Tutor comprising one or more Tutor Sessions for the individual student’s personal use and for purposes wholly or mainly outside the purposes of any business), the Contact may for any reason cancel a booked Tutor Session with the Tutor during the 14 day period after it has been accepted. The Tutor shall refund any applicable payment to the Contact within 14 days of receiving the notice of cancellation. However, if the booking includes any Tutor Session on a date which is before the end of that 14 day period (and the Contact has expressly requested the Tutor to provide any such Tutor Session in that 14 day period and the Tutor does so), the Contact may not cancel that requested Tutor Session and the Contact shall pay for it in accordance with this clause 10. If a Contact requests that a booking be cancelled in this way, they shall confirm this clearly in writing with the Tutor.
  1. Bypassing the Company
  • Users (Contacts or Tutors) shall notify us immediately of any offer or suggestion to circumvent the site in breach of this clause 11.

  • Neither Contacts nor Tutors shall, during their registration on the Site or during their relationship with the Company, for a period of 6 months after its termination or expiry, employ, contract the services of, or solicit or enter into any business transactions or agreements with any person who is or was engaged by or introduced to them via the Site or through the Company with a view to or having entered into a Relevant Agreement. Tutors agree to pay the Company on demand any Commission we would have been duly entitled to receive had such payments been made and shall indemnify us for any losses, costs or expenses suffered or incurred in connection with recovering such losses.
