Japanese Tutor Melbourne Pty Ltd (trading as Nunawading Japanese School) provides Japanese courses for adults (20 yrs  and over). Below are our school’s terms and conditions applicable to all students.

1) School/Student Agreement

This agreement constitutes a binding contract between the Student and Japanese Tutor Melbourne Pty Ltd. The Agreement is made up of these terms. You must ensure that you read, understand, and abide by the Agreement. It is considered acceptance of this agreement immediately once a student attends their trial, level check and/or enrols at our school.

2) Student Behaviour

Our teachers provide a comfortable, professional learning environment (either in our classrooms or online). We ask that all students behave maturely and show respect towards one another. 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. You will be removed from class and no refund will be provided.

*ONSITE CLASSES: Mobile phones are not permitted on classrooms tables and must be kept out of sight and on silent. This is at the request of our teachers and students. They are a distraction to yourself/others in class.

*ONLINE (VIDEO/AUDIO): All students must have video & audio (headset/earphones with mic) for classes. To help us continue to provide a high quality online learning environment, this is a requirement of online enrolment. Teachers ask that students are seated at tables in front of their pc/laptop (not on a couch/outside etc). As a school it’s our responsibility to ensure the online learning environment is kept professional and to do this, we ask students to assist with the above.

Our teachers have all completed formal teaching study with experience. We follow the same teaching style and curriculum. We work well as a team managing all classes together.

9) Students

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 either conducted online or onsite.

Level Checks: Before we can confirm if our school has any suitable classes for a student to join, they 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) Marketing/Online Class Recordings

From time to time we may ask individual/group classes to participate in photos/videos for school marketing (F2F or Online). Students are given the option not to participate if they wish. 

Occasionally online classes may also be recorded for internal training purposes only (unless otherwise advised). 

13) Lockdowns 

Should a lockdown be imposed, our school may need to close for a short period. To keep things simple, for classes that have been paid for and are consequently cancelled, we will apply a credit/s to your upcoming invoice.
