Tutorfair is 100% free for tutors and client to register, create a profile and make/ receive bookings.
Tutorfair has a commission on each lesson sold, which varies depending on how many hours the tutor has taught with us.
This commission is calculated as follows:
|Tutorfair Hours||Tutorfair %||Tutor "take home"|
|20 - 40||27.4%||68%|
|40 - 60||22.6%||73%|
Meaning that after a tutor has completed a total of 20 hours on Tutorfair, they receive a higher proportion of their hourly rate.
When tutors set their price there is a difference between the amount that they receive, and the amount that a client pays. The latter is what is displayed as the hourly rate on a tutor’s profile.
Moving to a new commission level
Once tutors have been paid for 20 Tutorfair hours then the hourly rate that clients pay will remain the same, and the amount that the tutor earns will increase. This will happen for lessons bought from the tutor's profile, and custom prices that tutors have created for clients
How is the commission calculated?
There are three elements that account for the difference between what tutors earn, and their hourly rate. There is the Tutorfair commission on each lesson sold, VAT on top plus the 1% donation which goes to the charity. We calculate the percentages from the pre-VAT, pre-charity hourly rate at the time that the tutor is paid. A full summary can be found here.
Any tutor referral payments are paid out of the Tutorfair commission. Tutors can also earn extra income by referring new clients to Tutorfair and recommending other tutors on the platform to clients.
