Overview and Disclaimer
The A Mark Website contains English as a Second Language (ESL) learning resources including custom IELTS preparation practice and assessment material. Users can purchase website access to individual modules or courses through the process described in these Terms. In addition, the website provides a tutor matching service to student users. Student users may opt in to reserve live classes at a coffee shop in Canada in combination with paid access to IELTS learning modules. Currently, we promote and organize live classes with independent contract ESL teachers from Vancouver, Canada.
Furthermore, we are directly affiliated with the following websites:
www.pftcollab.com ("the PFT website")
www.englishjunctionpress.com ("the EJP website")
@thenicoexpress (Facebook Media Outlet)
A Mark Training Inc. is in no way associated with IELTS or any of its parent companies.

You must have an account on the A Mark Website to purchase and access content on the Website. When setting up and maintaining your account, you must provide a valid email address. This email address must be the same as you use on the PFT website. See PFT Website Account in these Terms of Service for details.
You have complete responsibility for your account and everything that happens on your account, including for any harm or damage (to us or anyone else) caused by someone using your account without your permission. You may not transfer your account to someone else or use someone else’s account. If you contact us to request access to an account, we will not grant you such access unless you can provide us with the information that we need to prove you are the owner of that account.
You may not share your account login credentials with anyone else. You are responsible for what happens with your account. You must notify us immediately upon learning that someone else may be using your account without your permission (or if you suspect any other breach of security) by contacting A Mark Support Staff. We may request some information from you to confirm that you are indeed the owner of your account.
You must be at least 18 years of age to create an account on the A Mark Website and use the Services. If you are younger than 18 but above the required age for consent to use online services where you live (for example, 13 in the US or 16 in Ireland), you may not set up an account. If we discover that you have created an account that violates these rules, we will terminate your account.
PFT Website Account
You must also have a free registered account on our affiliate website, www.pftcollab.com, to apply for live classes with English tutors that we promote. Moreover, to access promotional free learning resources on the Website, you must have a free registered account on the PFT website. You are responsible for reading the terms of service on the PFT website and completing verification forms on the PFT and A Mark website in order to let A Mark Support Staff verify your email address. Without having your email address checked and verified, you are not permitted to access application forms for live classes nor free modules marked "Connect your PFT Account" on this A Mark Website.
Access to Website Content
The Website offers both paid and free access to IELTS preparation lessons and modules. In order to access payment forms, you must have a free account on the Website and be logged in. Please read the details in the Account section presented in these Terms of Service.
You can access some resources as individual modules in preparation for a single live class with a tutor, or you can access a sequence of modules in preparation for a number of live classes with a tutor. During your paid subscription to a module or course, you get a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license from us to access and view the content included in that payment option plan. You may not transfer, assign, or share your subscription with anyone else.
To subscribe to get access to learning resources , you must provide a payment method. All paid subscription access is processed through PayPal, which is the payment processor used on the Website. If we or the payment processor are unable to process payment through the payment method that you have provided, or if you file a chargeback disputing charges made to your payment method and the chargeback is granted, we may suspend or terminate your subscription.
The subscription fee will be listed at the time of your purchase. You can visit our Office Hours page to learn more about where to find the fees and length of access applicable to your subscription. Payments are non-refundable and there are no refunds for partially used periods.
Live Classes with a Tutor
In addition to paid access to IELTS learning content on the Website, we offer to connect you to an independent tutor contractor who can run live training sessions with you in a coffee shop. Currently, we offer tutor connections and live class schedule bookings in the Metro Vancouver area only.
All tutors promoted by the Website are required to have their teaching practice observed by the A Mark Director of Studies or other teacher training staff member. In addition, relevant teaching certificate and experience checks will have been performed by the A Mark Head Teacher or other regional manager. Information about qualification checks are available on our Office Hours page.
Let it be expressly emphasized that A Mark Training Inc. does not employ teachers. The website offers a subscription membership to local English as a Second Language teachers in cities and towns in Canada in exchange for promotion and organization of a class schedule with students who wish to prepare for class. Therefore, it is at your risk that you take a live class in a public coffee shop to assess your language skills. You agree that by signing up for classes with a teacher through the sign up form on this A Mark Website that you hold A Mark Training free from any liability. You also agree to abide by the rules and agreement presented on the application form itself before securing your live class schedule with your payment method. This will include up to date information on the cancellation and refund policy for classes.
