Wyzant tutors may determine their own cancellation policies for cancellations up to 36 hours in advance. Tutors may establish fees and should always communicate this to students before tutoring begins. It is important to communicate with your students about your cancellation policy before scheduling a lesson, in order to avoid disputes. Emails, phone calls, or text messages sent outside the messaging system are not verifiable by our team, so all communication regarding cancellations should be performed using Wyzant Messages.
You're not required to have a cancellation policy, and it is not required that you charge a cancellation fee for every cancelled lesson. These fees should be clearly communicated, and applying them is at your discretion. Please note that cancelled lessons are not subject to ratings from students.
To assess a cancellation fee, visit the Lesson Cancellation page. Cancellation fees cannot be assessed any earlier than 30 minutes before the scheduled end of a lesson, and cannot be assessed more than seven days after the date of the scheduled lesson. The maximum cancellation fee that can be processed by the Wyzant system is $250. Please note, lesson cancellations are subject to the standard 7% service fee.
