Should tutors feel uncomfortable at any time, they should leave the premises immediately. Should the student / guardian feel uncomfortable with the tutor, they are responsible to ask the tutor to leave immediately too. ACT TUITION is unable to monitor behaviour in-home, therefore, any possible issues will be the responsibility of the tutor and/or parent/guardian/student. At no point of the lesson should tutor, student and/or guardian be smoking, using any drugs or medication or showing any disrespect, whether personal or cultural. Payments are to be solely carried out with ACT TUITION and any discussion of payments is prohibted with the tutors. Tutors are at no point allowed to ask for any payment from students and students are to disclose such to use immediately, if this occurs. Moreover, booking of further slots, is to be discussed with ACT TUITION.
