Terms of Service

* Assessment

Before enrolment,  I meet to assess the student and to discuss concerns and goals with you, identify any learning issues and set up an individualised programme for your child.  

I will not enroll a student without an assessment first except in the case where a sibling has already been a student.

Assessments can be scheduled at the following times:

Fridays at 2:30 pm

Saturdays at 12 noon or 1pm

Another time suitable to you.

The cost for the assessment is $60. There is no obligation to enroll.

Assessment is 50 minutes to an hour long.

Reassessment - Once enroled I can meet with you for twenty minutes or so if you need to update or discuss something with me. If you think you will need a full hour, please book in for a re- assessment.

* Housekeeping

Please try and ensure that your child has had something to eat and drink and used the toilet before their lesson. 

Please let me know if there are any allergies or medical conditions.

Occassionally I offer a slice of apple or a lolly as encouragement.  If you do not want your child to have this just let me know.

If you are late dropping off, I may try to extend your child's session if that is suitable.

 If you are delayed collecting your child, I will hold them here until you arrive. 

I do not let children under the age of 7 leave without a parent.

*Available Spaces

I keep this list current. Please let me know if you are interested in a space and I can hold it for you.

All spaces are on a first come, first served basis.

Fee is $30 per session (including first session), paid by the school term.

Please let me know when you are finishing.


*Absences/Replacement Lessons

I do not take responsibility for lessons your child misses.

 If your child misses a lesson, I will do my best to reschedule their lesson however I can not guarantee this.

If your child is not going to attend their session, I request that you let me know in advance by a text or email.This helps another student who needs a replacement lesson. If your child is away for sickness and misses more than 4 lessons then I may not continue your enrolment. I will discuss this option with you.

I do not waive fees for missed lessons.  You are responsible for payment of all sessions your child has been scheduled for each term.


All student enrolments are for a term. 

We follow the public school calendar and break for school holidays.

The cost is $52 per lesson including gst  which is approximately $520 per term. 

All payment is due within the first 3 weeks of term.

 I expect prompt payment and am appreciative of the 99% of parents who do so.

 All invoicing and payment is done online. You will receive your invoice by email.

If you join halfway through the term you pay from the time you start. 

Please let me know if you have not received my invoice as it may be because of an incorrect email address or problem with the invoice going into your spam.

Make sure your child's complete name is included in the reference of your online payment. 

Re-Scheduling Class Time

  I can not guarantee a time change mid-way through a term so please take all commitments into consideration.  I will do my best to accommodate your changes.

Please be aware of the following:

If  you are unable to start lessons the week following your enrolment and wish me to hold a space you must pay your term fees to hold your place.

A big thank you to all parents who support their children's development and education by paying for extra tuition.

In the very unusual case, where payment is not made for a child for their studies with me, I will be forced to withdraw the student.
