Is there a discount for online teaching / Skype?
Some of our tutors offer a small discount for online lessons, as it gives them flexibility to arrange lessons in a way which reduces their travel time. This is, however, at the discretion of the individual tutor: some tutors take the view that they can achieve just as much (or indeed more) in an online lesson, due to the additional technologies which can be used, and therefore do not offer a discount for these lessons. In cases where tutors offer an online lesson discount, we will provide you with this information alongside their standard private tuition rate.
No hidden fees
The fees we quote include the total of everything you need to pay. There are no additional fees for registering you, finding the tutor or other admin: everything is rolled into the prices above, with the occasional exception of travel expenses.
Typically there is no additional charge for tutors' travel expenses — this is, however, at the discretion of the tutor, so additional costs may apply when the tutor has a long or expensive journey. These will always be quoted up-front when we recommend a tutor to you, so you can take these costs into consideration.
No strings attached
All the work we do up-front in finding you the perfect tutor comes with no strings attached: if you do not go ahead with one of our tutors, you will not need to pay anything. There is no minimum commitment, either — you can start out by booking just a single hour.
