How much lessons cost

The standard TutorYou hourly prices for Online Tutoring are the ones in this price list.

In person tutoring may be organised on request, in which case prices will be higher and communicated to you.

Certain Senior tutors may have higher hourly prices due to their advanced experience and limited availability. If you are assigned a senior tutor, TutorYou will communicate the price to you ahead of time.

Please note that prices are subject to change in the months of April and May based on demand.

How to pay for lessons

TutorYou uses a convenient wallet payment system designed to streamline your tutoring sessions. This digital wallet allows you to securely store funds and use them for any tutoring service, regardless of the tutor or subject. 

For your convenience and to minimise frequent transactions, we recommend adding funds equivalent to 5-10 hours of tutoring into your wallet. This approach ensures that you have a sufficient balance to cover multiple sessions without the need for regular top-ups. 

Once your wallet is about to finish, you will receive an email informing you of an upcoming renewal, at which point you can inform us if you wish to stop the tutoring, or change the amount that you pay.

You can see your current Wallet Balance, as well as all the lessons that you have done, by going to “My Profile” and clicking the link under “Tutoring & Payments Overview“.
