FOR Tutees and Parents
1 Our Service
ACHIEVERS TUITION AGENCY provides Tutees and Parents with qualified tutors catered to the needs of the Tutee with the ultimate goal of securing his/her desired results for their exams. However, we believe that producing good results requires equal effort from both the Tutee and the Tutor. It is impossible for the Tutor to produce good results for the Tutee if he/she is not willing to learn. As such, ACHIEVERS TUITION SERVICES and the Tutor is in no way liable for the final academic results of the Tutee should it not turn out as desired. However, we guarantee that we would do our best to assign the best and most suitable Tutor for the Tutee. Please note that our given rates are not fixed, but instead a guideline in order to facilitate our coordinators to find suitable Tutors for the Tutee whereby both parties can agree on a rate.
