Private Tuition

Note that: 

  • Onsite 1-on-1 lessons must be at least 1 hour. Semi-private groups and/or offsite lessons must be at least 1.5 hours. 
  • The AFHK will treat every request with due diligence.
  • We might not be able to answer all requests positively – time & place of the private tuition can affect the chances to find a tutor.
  • You may need to purchase textbooks or materials at an additional cost, unless otherwise specified.
  • A $100 AFHK Student registration/membership fee is required to attend our classes. It is valid for a period of 1 year and grants access to services for our students.
  • A transportation fee from $50 per trip applies for private tuition at a selected location of your choice.

Conditions of purchase: 

  • The payment is required 2 working days before the first lesson or the renewal of a package. No lesson will be confirmed if the payment is not received at least 2 working days prior to the scheduled lesson time
  • All private tuition purchase is valid for 6 months from the first lesson. .

Cancellations and changes: 

  • AFHK commits to find a teacher at requested schedule at least 5 working days from purchase. In case the student cancels the sale and requests a refund after AFHK booked the first lesson, the client will be subject to a retention of 20% of the order.
  • If prior notice is given before 24 hours, the lesson or lessons will be postponed to another day or hours, according to the availability of the centre and of the assigned tutor.
  • Failure to notify AFHK of a lesson cancellation 24 hours before the scheduled lesson time will result in the full fee being charged for the lesson. All notifications must be done on your WhatsApp group which would have created before the first lesson.  
  • Cancellations on behalf of minors must be made by their parent/s or guardian/s.
  • For semi-private tuition shared amongst multiple students, no split of credit will be possible once the tuition has been organised and paid for. The Alliance Française will not be held responsible for students’ changes in work commitments or personal circumstances when one student cannot attend the group tuition.

Refunds and credit notes: 

  • If a student arrives more than 15 minutes after the scheduled start of the lesson, the tuition will not be extended and no refund will be given. For more than 30 minutes late, the tuition will be cancelled without refund or reschedule. 
  • Similarly, the Alliance Française de Hong Kong cannot be held responsible for any difficulties preventing a student from arriving on time for a lesson that is not directly within the control of the student e.g. changes in work or personal circumstances or if the traffic is bad or for minor climate issues.
  • In case of T8, classes will be rescheduled accordingly with the teacher.
  • In case serious illness or hospitalization, a credit or a refund may be granted upon presentation of a medical certificate (Administration fee applies) according to AFHK discretion. All applications for a Letter of credit or refund must be addressed to the private tuition coordinator on your WhatsApp group. 
  • Cancellation by the AFHK: In the event of the AFHK experiencing problems at the time of a scheduled lesson and we are unable to provide our regular services, we will arrange for another lesson at the earliest convenience for both student and tutor. Alternatively, AFHK will charge accordingly and organise a Letter of credit for future lessons.
  • AFHK reserves the right to change teachers within a package in case of necessity. 


AFHK makes every effort to ensure that the course information provided is correct at all times. It reserves the right to change the location of private tuition sessions, fees and tutors when necessary. All attempts will be made to notify enrolled students of changes.

Jurisdiction: These terms and conditions will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws in force in the Hong Kong S.A.R. and, by signing this agreement, you submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of this territory.
