How many hours can I have?
As many as you need. Generally clients request an hour or two per lesson weekly but some clients have currently requested three or four hours per session because they have more than two children and they are at different levels.
How do we pay?
At the end of every lesson the client pays the tutor in cash, by cheque or by electronic transfer. Clients can pay in advance for multiple lessons. This is arranged with the tutor.
