Payment Questions

How much does tutoring cost?
You can visit our Rates page here: http://tutorsacrossamerica.com/?page_id=10
While individual tutor rates vary by level of experience and expertise, our rates are usually a fraction of what the big name tutoring companies (Kaplan, Princeton Review, Sylvan, Huntington…) charge. Because we don’t spend millions on overhead expenses and advertising, we’re able to offer the same high quality tutors (many of our tutors have taught, or are teaching, for these companies), at a fraction of the price. And because we pay our tutors significantly more than our competitors, we hire and retain the best tutors in the country.

What payment methods do you offer?
All payments should be made through Tutors Across America. This can be done in several ways: Our website accepts payments through PayPal and Google Checkout; you can call our office to pay by phone at: 702-818-5444, or if you prefer, you may mail a check or money order. If you decide to mail your payment to us directly, please make sure to notify us which tutor, how many hours and the student’s name on the check or money order. Also please allow 1 additional week from the date of deposit for checks to clear prior to the first tutoring session.

Am I allowed to pay the tutor with cash?
No, for accounting and security purposes, all payments must be made through Tutors Across America. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Are discounts offered for purchasing several sessions?
Yes. We offer discounts for every 5 hour increments of tutoring hours purchased at one time. Discounts range from 5% to 30% off the tutor’s hourly rate. Discounted rates are shown on each tutor’s profile so you can know the exact price prior to booking.

Miscellaneous

What is the lesson cancellation policy?
Both students and tutors should provide at least 24 hrs. notice prior to a cancellation/reschedule request. If student cancels less than 24 hrs. in advance more than once, a warning may be issued by the tutor, after which any subsequent last minute cancellations will be charged at a rate of 1 hour of tutoring.

Do you offer one on one online tutoring?
Yes! A majority of our tutors offer live online tutoring via Skype. Our US tutors have worked with students in all 50 states, and several countries. This is a seamless approach to bringing some of the best tutors in the country into your home.

Where does the tutoring take place?
Usually either the student’s home, or a local library near the student’s house. If at home, we require a parent or guardian be present during all tutoring sessions. Other students have chosen to meet tutors at school, a local Starbucks, etc.
