Send the tutor a message (for free)
After you've selected a tutor profile, you'll be able to start chatting with them for free. The tutor will receive your message instantly.
If they are available, they will accept your request and coordinate your session details with you.
If the tutor is not available, they will decline your request.
Complete your payment
Once the tutor has sent you an agreement, you'll be able to pay via:
The tutor will not receive the payment until you confirm that the session has occurred. You can decide how many sessions you want to pay for in advance.
Track your tutoring sessions
After each tutoring session takes place (at home, in a nearby cafe or online), you will be asked to confirm the session.
You can cancel or renew your package at any time.
Tutoring sessions are calculated per hour and vary between tutors.
Why don't all tutors have the same hourly rates?
The more reviews and experience hours a tutor has completed, the higher their hourly rate becomes. Tutors that have completed a certain amount of tutoring experience can set their own prices (Platinum Tutors). Tutors that recently added their profile to Orcas are either Bronze, Silver or Gold tutors depending on their previous experiences.
