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). BYT Tuition Limited (BYT) acts as agent on behalf of the tutor and the student. BYT 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.
In consideration of BYT providing you with students, you are not permitted to make private arrangements for tuition with clients introduced by BYT or with new clients introduced by BYT clients. Should you breach this obligation, you will be liable to account to BYT for all sums received by you from the client/new client without deduction and BYT 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 BYT must be billed through BYT on your behalf. BYT is happy to negotiate on commission for new clients referred to you by our clients but BYT must process the billing.
BYT is now building our new site and need your profiles up to date. This includes a photo and 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 or be able to register for them.
You and the client are responsible for finding and agreeing on a suitable environment in which tuition can take place.
BYT will agree the fee structure with the client and this must not be changed without written authority of BYT.
As part of the service, BYT will collect the fees due from students and passing them on to you, net of a commission. BYT invoices clients on behalf of tutors, based on time sheets submitted into the BYT 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.
You must keep your on-line time sheet up to date. BYT 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. BYT 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 14 days. You will not be entitled to receive your fee until BYT has received payment from the client. If BYT does not receive payment in reasonable time, Tutors may obtain written permission from a Director of BYT to invoice the client directly.
You must not accept any payment direct from the client without the written permission of a Director of BYT. Should you do so, all sums received by you will be immediately payable to BYT and shall be actionable through the Courts without further notice to you.
You undertake to BYT 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 BYT under this Agreement and further agree to indemnify BYT in respect of all and any income tax and national insurance contributions which may be found due from BYT on any payments made to you under this agreement together with any interest, penalties or gross-up thereon.
For the purposes of record keeping, you will account for the full fees due from the student as income and the commission as expenditure.
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.
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. BYT recommend that you agree a 24hour cancellation policy with the client so that BYT can charge them if they cancel the lesson at short notice. You need to have agreed this and the chargeable cancelled hours with the client before BYT will charge for them.
BYT do 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 BYT without limit in respect of any such claims.
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, clients or suppliers of BYT, except that you may disclose BYT’s confidential information as may be required by law, court order or any governmental or regulatory authority.
You shall not use BYT’s confidential information for any purpose other than to perform your obligations under this agreement.
