Most schools are charging registration fees but we 'Don't charge registration fees' because we are not a college or university so we do not charge registration/entrance fees.
We only charge what we think is appropriate. (our business ethics)
- This is for students who want a fixed weekly schedule (i.e. same day and time each week)
- All lessons must be paid in advance.
- Your requested time slot will only be reserved once payment is received.
- As an international company with a good reputation, we accept various payment methods for our clients convenience.
bank transfer ( Japanese account ) and Credit card (Visa, Master, Amex, JCB ) surcharge of 3.6% if paying by credit cards. Stripe payment system is charging it not our school.
- Once a student ceases to pay their monthly tuition they will immediately forfeit their time slot.
- Minimum purchase of four or five lessons depending on how many weeks your lesson day falls within the month. ( Fixed weekly schedule )
-We also offer *One-Off Lesson, The plan is for students who only wish to take one or two lessons per month.
( Flexible lesson time )
- Payment is due on the 1st of the Month in order to secure your time slot for the upcoming month regardless of how many lessons are remaining from the previous month. Skipped or rescheduled lessons will not simply be rolled back by one week thereby reducing the following month's tuition. Any skipped/rescheduled lessons must be made up on an alternative day/time to the usual schedule.
- We DO NOT offer refunds. Once payment has been received the student must commit to taking the lesson(s) he/she has purchased or they will forfeit the remaining lesson fee(s).
-Teacher's transportation cost: Not included in the lesson fee. (please bear the actual transportation costs.)Our teachers will communicate with their students directly regarding the transportation cost.
