Please ensure that a responsible adult is on the premises at all times.

These terms and conditions form the agreement between us for the supply of tuition services to the client and are deemed to be accepted by the client by virtue of signing these terms and conditions at the outset of the agreement to accept my tutoring services.

This agreement and (any documents referred to in it) constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes and extinguishes all previous drafts, arrangements, understandings or agreements between them, whether written or oral, relating to the subject matter of this agreement.

If any provision of this agreement is, or becomes, to any extent illegal, invalid or unenforceable, then it is the intention of the parties that this agreement shall be deemed amended in a reasonable manner to the extent necessary to render it enforceable without losing its intent, or at the discretion of the parties or the determination of the Court, such provisions shall, to the extent of the unenforceability, be deemed not to form part of the agreement. In either case, such provisions will not affect the legality, validity or enforceability of any other provision of this agreement, which shall continue in full force and effect.

This agreement may be executed and delivered in any number of counterparts, each of which is an original and which, together, have the same effect as if each party had signed the same document.

Each party acknowledges that, in entering into this agreement and the documents referred to in it, it does not rely on, and shall have no remedies in respect of, any representation or warranty (whether made innocently or negligently) that is not set out in this agreement or those documents. Each party agrees that its only liability in respect of those representations and warranties that are set out in this agreement or those documents (whether made innocently or negligently) shall be for breach of contract.

This agreement and any dispute, claim, payment or obligation (whether contractual or non-contractual) arising out of or in connection with it, its subject matter or formation shall be governed by English  Law and the parties hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English  Courts for the purposes of resolving any such matters.
