For Tutors

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). UK Study Centre Tution Ltd (UKSCT) acts as agent on behalf of the tutor and the student. UKSCT 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.

Private Arrangements

• In consideration of UKSCT providing you with students, you are not permitted to make private arrangements for tuition with Client introduced by UKSCT or with new Client introduced by UKSCT Client. Should you breach this obligation, you will be liable to account to UKSCT for all sums received by you from the Client/new Client without deduction and UKSCT 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 UKSCT must be billed through UKSCT on your behalf. UKSCT is happy to negotiate on commission for new Client referred to you by our Client but UKSCT must process the billing.

Profiles

UKSCT requires that your profile is up to date. This includes a photo. You MUST select all the subjects (and levels) you would like to teach. If you have not yet selected the subjects, you will not hear about available jobs and you will not be able to register for them.

Environment

You and the Client are responsible for finding and agreeing on a suitable environment in which tuition can take place.

Payment

• UKSCT will agree the fee structure with the Client and this must not be changed without the written authority of UKSCT.
• As part of the service, UKSCT will endeavour to collect the fees due from Clients and pass them on to you, net of a commission. UKSCT invoices Client on behalf of tutors, based on time sheets submitted by the tutor onto the UKSCT website.
• Please ensure that you fill in your online time sheets after each lesson. If you are late completing these time sheets or there is incorrect information on them, your payment may be delayed. Payments will only be made once the Client has paid the invoices.
• Your must keep your online time sheet up to date. UKSCT 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. UKSCT 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 21 days. You will not be entitled to receive your fee until UKSCT has received payment from the Client. If UKSCT does not receive payment in reasonable time, Tutors may obtain written permission from a Director of UKSCT to invoice the Client directly.
• You must not accept any payment direct from the Client without the written permission of a Director of UKSCT. Should you do so, all sums received by you will be immediately payable to UKSCT and shall be actionable through the Courts without further notice to you.
• You undertake to UKSCT 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 UKSCT under this Agreement. You further agree to indemnify UKSCT in respect of all and any income tax and national insurance contributions which may be found due from UKSCT on any payments made to you under this agreement together with any interest, penalties or gross-up thereon.
• For the purposes of recordkeeping, you will account for the full fees due from the Client as income and the commission as expenditure.

Expenses

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. Do not charge for travel in central London. Any expenses incurred by you without the agreement of the Client will not be reimbursed to you.

Cancellation policy

• 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.
• UKSCT recommends that you agree a 24-hour cancellation policy with the Client so that UKSCT 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 UKSCT will charge for them.

Damages

UKSCT does not accept any liability for any claims by the Client arising out of or related to the carrying out of the tutoring by you and you agree to indemnify UKSCT without limit in respect of any such claims.

Confidentiality

• You undertake that you shall not at any time during this agreement, and for a period of five years after termination of this agreement, disclose to any person any confidential information concerning the business, affairs, customers, Client or suppliers of UKSCT, except that you may disclose UKSCT’s confidential information as may be required by law, court order or any governmental or regulatory authority.
• You shall not use UKSCT’s confidential information for any purpose other than to perform your obligations under this agreement.
