3. Is there any charges if I request a tutor from Elite Tutor?
Ans: Absolutely not! There is no matching fee or hidden charges ever for parents or students. However, we do charge 50% of the 1st month’s tuition fee from the tutor as commission for helping them find a tuition assignment. For example, if the tuition fee of the 1st month’s tuition is $200, after the 2nd weeks we will collect $100 (50% of $200) from you. You are then required to pay the remaining $100 to the tutor directly at the end of the month. For subsequent months, you will pay $200 directly to the tutor.
* Do note for very short-term (usually less than a month) assignment, the tutor may sometime request that the parent absorb the commission
