How does Tutor Time compare?

At Tutor Grade, we believe parents and students, not agency assessors, are the best judges of who is the right tutor for them.
Unlike most agencies, we don`t work on commission, which drives up their tutors` hourly rates. As a result, the hourly rates of tutors signed up with Tutor Grade are usually less than tutors working for agencies, as they are in complete control of their rates.

A tutor can decline a student for many reasons (for example, a full schedule), so don`t be discouraged - the right tutor for you is out there. Messaging multiple (six or seven) candidates makes it more likely you`ll get a positive response. Also, a tutor`s response rate indicates how quickly they are likely to respond to your message.

Once you`ve reached a tutor and decided to request his or her assistance, the tutor can agree via their profile page. At this point a button will appear enabling you to purchase their contact details.
