When a student (or Fun-Lugha) contacts a service provider, we encourage them to reply no later than 3 days after receiving the message. We however, advise the student to wait at least 1 week for the tutor to reply. Should the service provider not adhere to this rule and if they give no explanation for the delay, we will give them a first warning. However, should this be repeated, they will immediately have their accounts suspended until they contact us and give us an explanation which we will decide if reasonable or not. Clients are also kindly requested to let the tutors know if they choose not to hire them-it’s a nice thing to do!
Project Submission Policy:
If a Service Provider delays their project submission to the client, 20% will be taken from their total pay with 15% returned to the client as a way of making amends and appeasing them. A delayed project is one that is submitted after the agreed deadline-regardless of the length of time, therefore service providers are encouraged and will be expected to submit their work to Fun-Lugha at least a full hour before the set deadline. In cases whereby the submitted work requires proofreading before submitting to the client, the work will be expected at a reasonable time, such that will allow the proofreader sufficient time to proofread and make the deadline.
Tutors/Teachers will be required to pay Fun-Lugha a one off fee which is usually the equivalent of 2 lessons’ worth. This will be paid in 2 installments. The first one will be paid by the student before the tutor’s contact details are released to them while the second one will be paid by the tutors themselves within 3 weeks of beginning lessons. This means that the student will be paying in advance for the first lesson and the fee will be counted as the first of the 2 installments. The student is therefore not required to pay again after the first lesson, they will do that from the second lesson onwards. This payment system is to ensure students pay at least half of the expected service fees to Fun-Lugha, as we haven’t had a very good experience with our previous system.
Tutees/Students won’t be required to pay Fun-Lugha any service fee. However, they will be required to pay for the first lesson in advance i.e. before the tutor’s contact details can be released to them. This will mean that they won’t pay again until after the second lesson. This fee is non refundable unless the tutor fails to show up and doesn’t contact the student within a reasonable time (usually 3 weeks). In that case Fun-Lugha will make the assumption that the tutor does not intend to teach the student and will refund the fees in full as well as deactivate the said tutor’s account. The student will be expected to provide Fun-Lugha with reasonable proof (text messages, emails etc) before they can be refunded.
All other language service providers will be required to pay a service fee to Fun-Lugha, which is 30% of the total fee agreed with their clients.
Clients for other services besides tuition will be making ALL payments directly to Fun-Lugha.
