General Terms and Conditions
TeachAllAboutIT Tutor Membership
The TeachAllAboutIt Tuition Centre is designed to provide accessible and flexible workspace for independent tutors, fostering an atmosphere of support and collaboration opportunities.
The TeachAllAboutIt Tuition centre provides members the opportunity to access managed hotdesk and room space for the purposes of private tuition and alternative eduation.
We have developed our company on the foundations of accessible education and where possible have made the space accessible. Where physical access is required, we have provided an accessibility listing to ensure that the space you book is suited to the needs of you as a tutor and your students.
Respecting Our Space
We are delighted to be able to share this educational space with you and in return we ask that you respect the time and effort put into creating the space and leave it as you find it.
Our workspaces have been designed to be flexible with the option of moving furniture to suit your needs. However, we do ask that you return the space to the way that it was found and please tidy up after yourself (all spaces are clearly labelled, but if you need help please ask!). Any damage to property following a booking may be charged for.
Our workspaces are shared and as such, we ask that you respect that others will be working in the same environment. It is likely that there will be students moving through the tuition centre (including the quiet tuition area) to access the toilets and/or kitchen area. When moving through the quiet room, we ask that you respect that others may be working and keep disruption to a minimum.
We expect all tutors and students to respect others irrespective of race, age, gender, or sexual orientation, and reserve the right to remove membership from those who do not abide by this fundamental expectation. Student behaviour remains the responsibility of the tutor booking the space.
