Some of our tutors offer a 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. In cases where tutors offer an online lesson discount, we will provide you with this information alongside their standard private tuition rate.
Block booking discount
We are currently offering 5% off the above rates when clients pay for 10 hours in advance. This is an optional discount - you may choose to pay in arrears at the standard rate if preferred. Each block of 10 hours is non-refundable once purchased, so you may wish to try a lesson or two at the standard rate before committing to a block. This offer is available to any clients placing a new tuition request in March/April 2020, and remains valid for 1 calendar year following the introduction of the new tutor(s).
The fees we quote include the total of everything you need to pay to the tutor and to Titanium Tutors. 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.
