The first hour is $35 for junior High School or younger, and $65 for senior High School or older. The first hour is refunded if you hire us within 7 days since taking it.
After the first hour you will get your quote/h. The price can be up to 50% less than your first hour if you start tutoring when you start the course.
Tutoring price mostly depends on the difficulty of your course, on you study habits, your prior history with Socrates Tutoring, your willingness/ability to communicate with the tutor OUTSIDE of your scheduled 1-on-1 time, your willingness to provide ongoing school notes, … Our goal is to keep the price as close as possible to $100/month. Students who start on time and follow our advice get to this level quickly.
When student starts with certain price/h, it is locked for the duration of the course unless there are penalties.
In general: younger the student – lower the price; sooner the final exam – bigger the price. It is not the same working with the student throughout the course, or meeting the student for the first time few weeks or days before the final exam.
Once the end of the course and the final exam are 4-8 weeks away, the $/h is over $65, even for younger students.
Please note that some courses ARE 4-8 weeks long ALTOGETHER. For such courses, students need to start preparing upfront; the ones who want to master the curriculum. Passing the course is another question altogether. Socrates Tutoring can help students with both goals.
All dollar figures stated here are just ROUGH estimates, given in CANADIAN dollars. Your EXACT price/h will be quoted to you after the first hour.
In house visits are also an option. Price starts at $140/h for Gr9 student or younger.
Socrates Tutoring covers all Maths and Physics courses. To tell the EXACT price/h for the EXACT student, for the EXACT course, we need to evaluate the current knowledge of that exact student, plus:
1. The name of the course (or course code given by the school)
2. The school where the course is being taken
3. The date for the final exam
4. Student’s time zone
5. Desired frequency and the meeting time with the tutor
