Separately, Tuition fees are agreed directly between yourself and parents/tutees and we ask for a one time %age of tuition fees as administration charges - generally for average length of tuition period, this amounts to in the range of 5% to 10%. This fees enables us to continue providing our users with a personalised seamless experience through our portal.
