As a tutor with Tutorful, you are in charge of managing your own business. We may offer suggestions and guidelines, but the decision rests with you regarding what you want your hourly rate to be. Please bear in mind that your rate must include your travel expenses for travelling to sessions within your usual travel radius, as this should not be added on top except for in exceptional circumstances (such as when taking on students who are far beyond your usual travel distance) and you should always make sure you communicate this clearly with students.
You can change your hourly rate at any time by heading to your profile in editor mode, and this will bring up a form which will take you through how your new rate will fit in with the platform fee:
We do recommend that you honour your previous hourly rate with your current students, as they would have contacted you with this in mind and may not be willing to pay your new rate for lessons. You can change the rate you charge for lessons by manually inputting this on the booking form.
If you'd like to change your rate for a single student without changing the rate on your profile (to add an additional charge for multiple students, to offer a discount to a specific student if necessary or to honour a previous hourly rate for an existing student for example) then you can do this on the booking form.
When you book in a lesson, there is a box to fill in for your rate:
If you leave the box unfilled then the lesson will be automatically charged at the hourly rate on your profile. If you would like to charge a different hourly rate, then you can simply write the rate in the box and the lesson cost will be calculated from this depending on the duration of the lesson.
