4. Commission & Payment
i) Nanyang Academics will collect 50% of the first month's fee or first 4-weeks worth of tuition sessions rendered by the tutor, whichever is higher. This commission will be collected directly from the parent. As a result, do not collect 100% of your fees from the parent. An upfront deposit of 50% is to be collected upon confirmation of the assignment.
ii) If any lessons are cancelled during the first 4 weeks, the commission amount remains unchanged. We will still levy commission based on the amount of lessons agreed upon at the start.
For example, there will be 4 lessons in a span of 4 weeks, 1 week is cancelled hence only 3 lessons are given. Commission will still be based on 4 lessons and not 3.
