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 and selecting "Edit" just underneath your current rate. Please be aware that if you do amend your hourly rate, you must still ensure that you honour your old hourly rate for any students that you are already in contact with. You can do this by amending the rate on the booking form (see below).
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 you 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.
