    1. Upon request from a customer, we will contact them and make a concrete offer for one or more tutoring hours.
    2. This offer includes the place and time of the agreed hours, their duration, the subject and the price. The appointed tutor does not have to be determined at the time of the offer. With the acceptance of this offer the contract comes into being.

    4. In the case of a request from a customer regarding the purchase of documents or other scripts, the scripts for which subject and, if applicable, what topics are concerned and the price for which they are sold or bought must be explicitly regulated. If this is fulfilled, a contract is concluded.

    2. If there is a discrepancy between the advertisement of tutors on the various platforms, the list of tutors that is longer is to be regarded as complete.
