Ottiya Classes Refund Policy

Class Payments 

Full payment for all classes are required before the class. As of January 1, 2022, payments must be made five working days in advance of the class (or first class for multi-week classes). If the payment in incomplete or delayed, a late fee of 20% of the total cost will be incurred. 

Bank Wire Transfer Payments 

Students based in South Korea may pay their class fees via bank wire transfer. For more information on how, please email us at classes.ottiya[at] 

Rescheduling 1:1 or Private Classes 

Group classes cannot be rescheduled. 1:1 or private classes can only be rescheduled with a minimum of five days notice to the teacher and Ottiya. Rescheduling 1:1 or private classes can only occur with the mutual consent of the teacher and student(s). If rescheduling is not possible, it will be counted as refund request and is subject to the policies below. 

Refund Policies*

  • – Full refund: if requested 5 days prior to when a class begins
  • – 75% refund:  if requested 2-4 days prior to the start of a class
  • – 0% refund: if requested less than 48 hours before a class starts
  • – Students requesting a refund will need to bear the cost of the refund transaction fee

Teacher side changes:

  • – Unless a teacher cancels a class at least 5 days prior to the start of the class, the teacher will be receiving penalty charge of 5% of their 30-minute teaching rate
  • – If the teacher misses a one-time class, students will receive a full refund of the missed class upon a written email request
  • – If part of a class is rescheduled, students will receive, upon a written email request, a pro-rated refund based on the number of classes that were rescheduled and that you did not attend
  • – If the teacher does not teach the number of classes promised, students will receive a pro-rated refund upon request
  • – If the teacher cancels a class in progress, you will receive a pro-rated refund based on the percentage of classes you paid for that were canceled, and the teacher will bear the cost of the transaction fees

Student side changes:

  • – If a student missed a class, he/she is not entitled to a refund.  If 3 consecutive classes are missed without communicating to the teacher, the class fee will be forfeited and the teacher may cancel the class. Learners, however, may be transferred to other available sections at the teacher’s discretion, and a recording may be available. 
  • – If students have not joined the class 10 minutes after the start time, the class may be cancelled, at the teacher’s discretion, which will then be considered as a missed class and you are not entitled to a refund
  • – Teachers may transfer students to another section of the same class with your consent

 *Payments for refunds will be made via Paypal and can take up to 14~28  business days.
