Cancellation & Rescheduling Policy
New York Speech Coaching practices a 48-hour Cancellation & Rescheduling Policy.
Clients are welcome to cancel or reschedule a session with more than 48 hours' notice.
Rescheduling requests within 48 hours are treated as cancellations. Sessions cancelled or rescheduled within 24 hours of session start time results in a charge of the full session fee. Sessions cancelled or rescheduled within 48 hours of session start-time results in a charge of $50 fee per hour of cancellation.
Please only commence with training at New York Speech Coaching if you feel completely comfortable with the terms of the cancellation policy. We respectfully ask that you not inquire about exceptions, as we are unable to waive the fee as per our agreement with instructors and in fairness to other clients.
We hold our instructors to the same policy. If an instructor cancels a session within 48 hours, the client will receive a $50 discount on their next session. If an instructor cancels a session within 24 hours, the client will receive their next session free.
Inclement Weather Provision (for in-person sessions): The safety of our students is of course our first priority. We seek to balance that with the common and unpredictable weather during the winter. If public transportation systems are not running in New York City proper (the 5 boroughs) due to the weather, the session will be conducted virtually. If public transportation systems in New York City proper are running, sessions may still remain in person, and the cancellation policy will remain in effect. Fees explained in the cancellation policy will only be waived when there is closure of NYC transit due to weather and virtual sessions are not an option. If New York Transportation is running, but you are in an area where you are concerned about your travel, we suggest pursuing an online session instead. This is an excellent option during blizzards!
For seminars or in-office corporate training, a non-refundable deposit of 20% is required upon booking / scheduling dates, and the remainder may be remitted within 30 days of the conclusion of the workshop. Dates may be rescheduled up to two times with 14 days' notice. Rescheduling requests that exceed two instances or cancellations will forfeit the deposit. Deposit and payment may be via credit card, check, or wire transfer.
