All dollar figures are in Canadian dollars. 

The   first   hour  is   $35  for  junior  High  School   or  younger,  and   $65   for  senior  High  School  or  older.   For   Quebec   only:  $35   for  high  school   (junior  and   senior)   and   younger,   and  $65  for   Cégep   students  and   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   what’s   new  in  your  class   OUTSIDE  of   your  scheduled  1-on-1 time,  your willingness  to  provide  ongoing  school  notes, …   Our  goal  is  to  keep  the  price  as  low  as possible.  

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.

When student  starts  with  certain  price/h,  it  is  locked  for the  duration  of  the course  unless  there  are  penalties.

 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.

 

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

All  services  are  prepaid.  Pay  as  you  go.  E-transfer  or  PayPal.  The payment  for  the  service  is  not  refundable  but  it is  transferable.
