My hourly tutoring rate is £40/$54 per hour, the rate for Academic advice is £60/$80 per hour. That hour includes 50 minutes of tutoring and 10 minutes to check in about progress, payment and scheduling. I am not able to tutor for longer than the required 50 minutes per session unless otherwise arranged. The student/client agrees to pay my tutoring fee in advance or at the beginning of the tutoring session.


You may cancel your tutoring session with no penalty up to three days before the scheduled session. If, however, you cancel within 24 hours of the session, payment is due in full.

This tutoring agreement may be terminated at any time by any party, within the cancellation policy guidelines above.


A regular weekly scheduled session is best, but with notice, we may be able to adjust your tutoring session.
