8. All tutors provided are under written contract to VICTORIA ENGLISH CENTRE and are only free to tutor for the client through the agency, even after they, and/or you have left the agency. Should any further hours of tuition result from an introduction made by VICTORIA ENGLISH CENTRE, the usual fee must be paid. Should the client employ a tutor previously contracted to the agency within a 2 year period of them and/or the client leaving the agency, or employ another tutor recommended by the tutor during this time, the client will be issued with and agrees to pay an introductory fee of £750, which is payable within 14 days of issue.
