Pricing FAQ

Are we billed monthly?

No, you'll be billed once a year. Your annual price is set by the quantity of tutors in the program at the beginning of the launch semester.

How do we calculate our tutor count for the year?

For both the academic year and summer periods, you'll estimate the peak number of tutors you expect to have on staff. This will drive your annual expense for the year. For example, a program might expect to have a peak of 30 tutors on staff for September - May (9 months) and 10 tutors on staff for Summer (3 months).

What happens if I hire more or less tutors than was estimated?

The difference will be accounted for in the next contract signed. If more tutors were hired, an extra amount will be added to the new year's bill; the same is true for less tutors hired, reducing the new year's bill.

Are we basic/advanced or university-wide?

Basic/advanced plans are intended for single tutoring centers on campus that target a specific subset of students (for example, engineering, freshman, or writing). If you are the centralized location for tutoring on campus, with an aim to support all students and with diverse tutoring modes, we will prepare a custom quote.
