Terms and Conditions

  1. Billing and Payment. The Parent agrees to pay Rose Writing Center LLC (“Rose Writing Center”) the agreed upon price for chosen teaching services online via the Tutor Bird Parent Portal accessible on the website www.rosewritingcenter.com.
    • Registration Fee. Families will be billed a nonrefundable $25 registration fee when they sign up on the website.
    • Private and Semi-Private Classes. Families will pre-pay for their classes on a monthly basis. On the 1st of each month, their preferred payment method will be charged for the classes they have scheduled in the electronic system for that month. It is the Parent’s responsibility to ensure that his or her online schedule is accurate. If a Parent needs to cancel a class, they should do so prior to the 1st of the month in which that class occurs in order to avoid being billed for it. If a Parent cancels a class for which they have already paid in accordance with the cancellation policy, then they will be issued a credit for the value of the class to be applied to their next invoice. If a Parent adds an additional class to a month whose balance has already been paid, then the cost of that additional class will be added to their next invoice.
    • Group Classes. Group classes are paid for in full upon enrollment or on an installment plan if one is made available.
  2. Refund Policy. 
    • Private and Semi-Private Classes. Rose Writing Center does not offer refunds on prepayments for private and semi-private classes. The Parent must cancel upcoming classes prior to the 1st of the month in order to avoid being billed for them. If a Parent cancels classes for which they have already paid in accordance with the cancellation policy, then they will be issued a credit for the value of the class to be applied to their next invoice. Such credits will remain on the Parent’s account for 365 days.
    • Group Classes.
      • Summer Classes: Summer classes are non-refundable. We ask that parents schedule consultations with us to make sure that they are selecting the right class for their child. If you are hesitant to commit to a group class, we encourage you to consider private instruction. Transfers will be permitted as long as there is space in the desired class.
      • Academic Year Classes: Parents may request to withdraw from a group class within seventy-two (72) hours of the first class. Such withdrawal requests must be submitted in writing via email to info@rosewritingcenter.com. There is a $100 withdrawal fee per Student. Any payment processing fees which Rose Writing Center incurred for the tuition paid will not be refunded. Within ten business days of the approval of a withdrawal request, Rose Writing Center will provide a prorated refund for the course’s remaining classes less the withdrawal fee and payment processing charges. After seventy-two hours have passed, Rose Writing Center does not offer refunds under any circumstances.
    • Rose Writing Center reserves the right to cancel a group class due to low enrollment. In the event that Rose Writing Center cancels a class, the Parent will be duly notified and Rose Writing Center will issue a full refund to the original method of payment.
  3. Late Arrivals. No adjustment to class time shall be made for time lost because of late arrival by the Student or because of early termination of class by the Student. Any lost time because of the late arrival of the Instructor shall be compensated for by extending a class by mutual agreement and by such amount of time that was lost.
  4. Rescheduling.
    • Private and Semi-Private Classes. Families are responsible for making any necessary scheduling modifications in the electronic scheduling system. If they are unable to make the adjustment needed in the system for any reason, then they should email their child’s instructor with as much advance notice as possible in an effort to reach a mutually agreeable change to the schedule. While we will make our best effort to reschedule classes upon request, RWC instructors have limited availability for rescheduling due to their tightly booked schedules. As such, we cannot guarantee the availability of alternative time slots. Classes that cannot be rescheduled will be considered cancellations and therefore subject to our cancellation policy below.
    • Group Classes. The group class schedule is fixed for the duration of the course. A group class will not be rescheduled except in rare circumstances. In such a circumstance, the class will not be rescheduled unless every enrolled family consents in writing to a new date and time.
  5. Cancellation Policy.
    • Private or Semi-Private Classes. If the Parent or Student cancels a class with less than 24 hours of notice, the Parent will not be refunded for that class, nor will the amount of prepayment be transferable to another date. If Rose Writing Center cancels a class for any reason, the prepayment will be applied to a future class mutually agreeable to Rose Writing Center and the Student.
    • Group Classes. Group classes run as scheduled. If a Student misses his or her group class, they can make up the missed class in accordance with our Missed Class Policy below. If the group class instructor is unavailable to teach as planned for any reason, then a substitute instructor will be assigned to teach the class. In the rare event that Rose Writing Center must cancel a group class, then an alternate makeup class will be scheduled at a time convenient for the enrolled Students.
  6. Missed Class Policy for Semi-Private and Group Classes. Our program is designed to provide students with as much consistency and cohesiveness as possible, so that steady progress is made by the class as a whole. With that said, we recognize that students may occasionally have commitments that conflict with their class. Parents are asked to notify Rose Writing Center of an absence from class in advance by emailing info@rosewritingcenter.com. To make up a missed class, students have the following options. Please note that Rose Writing Center does not offer refunds for missed classes.
    1. Watch class recording, which will be shared upon request via a password-protected temporary link. Please email your child’s instructor to request a recording.
    2. Join an equivalent live class held in the same week, if such a class is available. Please contact info@rosewritingcenter.com to request a list of equivalent classes.
    3. Arrange a makeup class with the class instructor per the following policy:
      • Makeups can be scheduled via the Parent Portal.
      • One 45-minute private makeup classes will be provided to each student free of charge each semester (Summer, Fall, Spring).
      • Two additional 45-minute private makeup lessons can be scheduled per semester via the Parent Portal and will be billed at the discounted rate of $50.
  7. No Shows for Private Classes. Students have fifteen minutes to arrive for their scheduled class. If a Student is running late, the Parent is encouraged to inform the instructor directly via email to both the instructor and info@rosewritingcenter.com or via phone call to (917) 426-8799. If a Student does not arrive within fifteen minutes of the class’s scheduled start time and the Instructor has not been informed that the Student is running late, then the Student will be considered a No Show, the class will be considered canceled and subject to the Cancellation Policy, and the instructor will exit the Zoom meeting.
  8. Location. Classes are conducted online via Zoom.

  10.
