8. TUTORS THROUGH AGENCY
The following arrangements are understood and agreed by both parties:
Once a tutoring position has been confirmed, you are entering into a contract between you (the tutor) and the Client (the student, or the student’s parent/guardian). Tavistock Tutors Limited (TT) acts as agent on behalf of the tutor and the student. TT is only responsible for finding students and an appropriate teacher for the specific subject, and is not responsible for the content of lessons and the teaching methods.
9. PRIVATE ARRANGEMENTSY
In consideration of TT providing you with students, you are not permitted to make private arrangements for tuition with Client introduced by TT or with new Client introduced by TT Client. Should you breach this obligation, you will be liable to account to TT for all sums received by you from the Client/new Client without deduction and TT shall be entitled to obtain an injunction against you to prevent further breaches. This obligation shall continue notwithstanding termination of this Agreement.
Any work referred to a tutor by a Client of TT must be billed through TT on your behalf. TT is happy to negotiate on commission for new Client referred to you by our Client but TT must process the billing.
IYou and the Client are responsible for finding and agreeing on a suitable environment in which tuition can take place.
TT will agree the fee structure with the Client and this must not be changed without the written authority of TT.
As part of the service, TT will endeavour to collect the fees due from Clients and pass them on to you, net of a commission and VAT. TT invoices Client on behalf of tutors, based on hours submitted by the tutor onto the TT TutorCruncher account.
Please ensure that you submit lesson hours on TutorCruncher after each lesson. If you are late submitting these hours or incorrect information is submitted, your payment may be delayed. Payments will only be made once the Client has paid the invoices.
You must keep your hourly submissions up to date. TT recommends that tutors keep a signed record of all lessons taught (or cancelled with less than 24hrs notice) and expenses agreed with Client (signed by
Client after each lesson). We do not need to see this but if a Client disputes hours that are invoiced we will be unlikely to be able to pay tutors if this record has not been signed.
You will not be paid directly by the Client. TT sends an invoice to the Client, on behalf of and as an agent for you (the tutor), at the beginning of each calendar month to cover the previous month’s tuition.
Our payment terms are 7 days (deferred by 7 days).You will not be entitled to receive your fee until TT has received payment from the Client. If TT does not receive payment in reasonable time, Tutors may obtain written permission from a Director of TT to invoice the Client directly.
You must not accept any payment direct from the Client without the written permission of a Director of TT. Should you do so, all sums received by you will be immediately payable to TT and shall be actionable through the Courts without further notice to you.
You undertake to TT that you will duly pay the tax and national insurance contributions which are due from you whether in the United Kingdom or elsewhere in relation to the payments to be made to you by TT under this Agreement. You further agree to indemnify TT in respect of all and any income tax and national insurance contributions which may be found due from TT on any payments made to you under this agreement together with any interest, penalties or gross-up thereon.
For the purposes of record keeping, you will account for the full fees due from the Client as income and the commission as expenditure.
All expenses (books, travel, etc) must be agreed with Client before you add them to your account. If you buy books please keep receipts so you can return them to shop if Client does not want to buy them. Any expenses incurred by you without the agreement of the Client will not be reimbursed to you.
Both the Client and the tutor must notify the other in advance of any holiday commitments they may have; and any changes to the tuition timetable necessary because of illness. An alternative date will be arranged.
TT recommends that you agree a 24-hour cancellation policy with the Client so that TT can charge the Client if s/he cancels the lesson at short notice. You need to have agreed this and the chargeable cancelled hours with the Client before TT will charge for them.
