If the Tutor cancels an arranged Lesson less than 24 hours before the Lesson is due to begin, for a reason other than an accident or an emergency, then the Client is entitled to ask that a subsequent Lesson, up to the same duration, be offered by the Tutor at half of the agreed Lesson Fee unless a mutual alternative agreement has been made between the Client and the Tutor.
