Terms and Conditions

"If you are persistent, you will get it. If you are consistent, you will keep it."
Cost and Location of Tutoring Sessions

30 minute sessions - $45.00+GST per session.

45 minute sessions - $55.00+GST per session.

60 minute sessions - $65.00+GST per session.

Payment is to be made within 7 days via internet banking, unless otherwise arranged.

Non-payment within this time period may lead to your space being given to another student.

Where possible, primary school students from the following schools will be tutored during school hours, on school grounds.  Parents are responsible for checking with both the school for space availability and the student's teacher for permission.  Schools include Laingholm School, Woodlands Park School, Titirangi School, Kaurilands School, Konini School, Green Bay School and St Dominics Primary.

All other students will need to confirm our ability to tutor at their school, attend tutoring via Zoom, or at Julie's home office in Woodlands Park.

School Year

Tutoring will take place during school term time only, unless otherwise arranged.  Usually tutoring does not take place in the first week of the school year to allow students to settle into new routines, nor in the last week of the school year.


Please note that all sessions are fully booked.  Lateness to a session counts as part of the tutoring time, and the session can not be extended to accommodate.

After school sessions are booked according to availability.

Cancellation Policy

Students must commit to a full term of tutoring at the start of each term. If tutoring is cancelled prior to the end of the term, parents are liable for the unfilled lessons unless prior arrangement has been made, or the cancelled sessions have been filled by another student.

Students may have 10% of lessons off for sick days, school trips, and so on.  This equates to two days off per term for students with two tutoring sessions per week, and one day off per term for those with one tutoring session per week. Parents will not be liable for payment on those sessions, as long as reasonable notice is given.  After these sessions have been used, parents will be liable for the cost of any further missed sessions.  Every effort will be made to conduct make-up sessions.

If we turn up to the school and the student is not present or not available, the full price of the tutoring session will be charged.  This is to compensate for time, travel, and the fact that make-up sessions can not be arranged. If a student is involved in a school event such as athletics, swimming, performance, etc, we will not pull them from the event to attend tutoring.  This is due to their willingness to learn and our ability to locate them on school grounds.

Sometimes events such as lockdown drills or fire drills happen that are neither the fault of the parent nor the tutor.  If such an event occurs during a tutoring session, your tutor will offer you the opportunity to either: schedule a makeup session where possible; lengthen a number of existing sessions to make up for the lost time; or split the payment for the session 50/50 between tutor and parent.
