General Terms of Payment

  • Payment for using Nagwa tuition services will be by the use of a valid credit or debit card through supported payment methods such as PayPal.
  • Currency exchange settlements and foreign transaction fees are based on your agreement with the payment method provider (i.e. PayPal).
  • Nagwa’s paid-for services operate on a prepay model, meaning you must pay in advance by topping up an SSA with a sufficient balance before a student is able to send questions via the Homework Help service or book a scheduled tuition session.
  • Your balance will expire twelve months after your last financial transaction on your account, whereupon you will be refunded for any remaining credit in your wallet. To continue using Nagwa’s paid-for services after this point, you will need to top up your wallet with a new amount of money.
  • You can arrange a scheduled tuition session on behalf of a student (a child) who has an SSA, but the session can only be attended through the SSA.

For Homework Help

  • The charges per question, for Homework Help, are determined by the Nagwa team and are specified depending on different locations and grades. The charges are inclusive of any applicable VAT. Users are charged in advance based on the country in which they reside, the subject of the questions they send, and the level of the question asked.
  • Prices and top up amounts for Homework Help can be viewed via the pricing page: {link}. They are subject to change according to any decision made by the Nagwa team. In the event of any changes, current users will be notified.
  • If you don’t receive an answer video within three days of sending the question, you are entitled to a full refund which will be credited to your balance. For more details, see section 15.

For Scheduled Tuition

  • Tutor’s prices for a scheduled tuition session are set for each individual tutor.
  • You can arrange a scheduled tuition session on behalf of an SSA. However, the session can only be attended via the SSA.
  • An SSA can arrange a scheduled tuition session providing you have topped up their wallet.
  • In the event that a tutor fails to attend a scheduled session or there are technical difficulties causing the session to fail, please contact Nagwa https://www.nagwa.com/en/contact/ and we will arrange a refund in accordance with section 18.

17. Tuition Services

Homework Help

  • Homework Help services are provided by Nagwa. When a question is posted through one of your associated SSAs, you enter a legally binding contract with Nagwa.
  • All fees are payable to Nagwa inclusive of VAT.
  • When you place an order for a question, you expressly acknowledge that you wish Nagwa to immediately start working on preparing an answer. When you confirm acceptance of these terms, you waive your legal right to cancel or change your mind (i.e. the cooling off period).
  • When using Homework Help, a student should only submit clear, legible questions that are appropriate for the year in which a user is registered. A student is expected to submit one question at a time. If a photo contains multiple questions, a student should clearly identify which question they want answered.
  • Nagwa may reject a question submission if it is not appropriate for the level at which it has been submitted, is unclear, or contains multiple questions which cannot be answered in a reasonable time frame. In this instance, Nagwa will contact the user to explain various options. In these specific circumstances, a user may be refunded on the basis that a Nagwa tutor has not worked on providing the answer.
  • A Homework Help answer video is an individually crafted video created by a tutor. It will contain content relevant to the question and will provide the user with an explanation of how to solve the question. It will contain a unique solution to the question at some point in the video.
  • The Nagwa Homework Help service is asynchronous; there is no live interaction between a tutor and a student.
  • Nagwa reserves the right to save and archive any Homework Help video answers for the period of time that a user (parent, student, or tutor) is registered on our platform, for the purpose of quality control and addressing customer complaints, and for the purpose of safeguarding. The saved videos will be accessible to Nagwa’s team and to the individual user who purchased them.
  • A student will rate the video answers for their questions. They are expected to do this fairly and honestly. If their rating is low, they must provide a reason for this. Nagwa reserves the right to review any tuition session accordingly.
  • Nagwa endeavours to store questions and solution videos on your account and make them accessible to view at any time via the tutoring app or through the website. However, please be aware that it is ultimately your responsibility to download and store Homework Help solution videos if you would like to ensure your continued access to them.

Scheduled Tuition

  • Scheduled tuition services are provided by independent self-employed tutors verified by Nagwa. When you schedule a tuition session, you enter a legally binding agreement with the tutor providing the tuition service to you.
  • All fees are payable to Nagwa, with Nagwa acting as a payment processor on behalf of the tutor.
  • All independent tutors on Nagwa are non-VAT registered.
  • Nagwa receives a commission from the tutor to cover the provision of Nagwa’s services provided to the tutor.
  • Tutors create a profile on Nagwa and a user may browse these profiles to their discretion.
  • A scheduled tuition session is via a whiteboard interface with a two-way microphone. We reserve the right to record any tuition session, so it can be reviewed at a latter point by Nagwa.
  • You, and any SSA, have access to a tutor’s calendar to see their availability for tuition. When scheduling a session, you, or an SSA, can include a message detailing the assistance needed in the tuition session. A tutor will then need to accept the tuition request and you will release payment for this session from your wallet or any balance assigned to an SSA.
  • You can only book a session for a date and time which is 48 hours or more in the future. This is to allow time for a tutor to accept a request and allow suitable time for cancellation.
  • A scheduled tuition session is attended via an SSA’s dashboard on https://www.nagwa.com or via the Nagwa Tutoring Student Edition app.
  • At the end of a scheduled session, a student will be asked to give a rating. This should be done fairly and honestly and should be reflective of the quality of service received. If their rating is low, they will need to give a reason for this. Nagwa reserves the right to review any tuition session accordingly.

18. Refunds and Complaints Policy

  • Homework Help is generally a non-refundable service except in exceptional circumstances.
  • Scheduled tuition can be cancelled up to 24 hours before a session. Cancellations within 24 hours of the session must be paid in full. This includes instances where a student fails to attend a session.
  • A user can apply for a refund within 72 hours of receiving a question solution or attending a tuition session in the following exceptional cases:
    • if a solution to a question was not received in a reasonable period of time as mentioned in section 16.8;
    • a tutor failed to attend a scheduled session (16.12);
    • the service quality received by the user did not meet an acceptable standard. This includes in the event of technical issues where the service is not delivered correctly;
    • Nagwa will be responsible for reviewing each case individually and will make a final decision as to whether a refund is paid directly to the user, to the user’s account, or not at all.
  • If a customer wishes to make a complaint, they should contact Nagwa https://www.nagwa.com/en/contact/ or by sending an email to nagwa@nagwa.com.
  • Cancellations must be made in writing through the Nagwa website: https://www.nagwa.com/en/contact/.
  • If a tutor cancels a session, you will be offered an alternative session timeslot or a full refund paid into your user wallet.
  • You will be refunded if you decide to terminate your Nagwa account and have any credit left in your wallet or the wallet of an SSA account.
