At any stage we reserve the right to cancel your enrolment without any warning or notice for inappropriate behaviour that is deemed anti-social, offensive or dangerous.

All classes are held at our school location – 8A Wood Street Nunawading Vic 3131. Our school only has 1 location in Victoria. Other providers who use the term “Japanese Tutor Melbourne” are not affiliated with our school at all.

Once an invoice is paid, we do not provide refunds for missed/cancelled lessons. We do not reschedule within the month.
In the unlikely event that the school needs to cancel a month/s lessons, students will have the option a) to be refunded all classes within the period paid for b) to carry forward payment as credit for future lessons.
7) Catch Up Lessons (Group Class Only)
*Only available for student's missing 2 or more consecutive classes in a row. (*SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY).
Students who miss/plan to miss 1 x lesson are provided all course material/homework for that class. (Payment is still required for enrolment purposes.)
If you have an upcoming holiday planned (missing 2 or more consecutive classes), we will do our best to allocate available time for catch up lessons to substitute the classes you’ll miss. If there is not enough availability within the schedule, you’re monthly invoice may include a combination of catch up lesson & *Material Only/Non Attendance charges.
- Substitute Catch Up Rate: $55 inc per hour (*When we substitute/replace your standard class fee for an individual catch up lesson)
Our teachers have all completed formal teaching study with experience. They follow the same teaching style, curriculum and are trained by our head teacher. All teachers manage all classes together and work as a team.
As students progress through our course content, as a school we reserve the right to relocate a student. This may include "moving to a more suitable class" or alternatively "offering private tuition instead".
It's our responsibility as a school to ensure all students learn at a comfortable/challenging pace.
10) Trial lesson/Level Check
All trial lessons/level checks are conducted at our school location 8A Wood Street Nunawading.
- Levels Checks: Before we can confirm if our school has any suitable classes for a student, he/she must attend a level check with a teacher. These appointments are free. Attending a level check does not guarantee that we will be able to offer a suitable option.
11) Privacy Statement
Throughout the enrolment process and being a member at our school, we obtain personal information about you. We respect your privacy and will not share your information with any third party. We will only use or disclose private information when required by law or for the purposes of this Agreement and/or your Enrolment.
12 Social Media
From time to time students may take part in marketing across social media and our school’s website. This is not mandatory and all students have the option to remain anonymous and/or not partake in any photography/videos.
13) Ongoing Changes and Variations
Over time this agreement may vary at the discretion of Japanese Tutor Melbourne Pty Ltd. We reserve the right to make changes that may affect classes, fees or lesson location whenever necessary.
