There are two ways clients can engage with tutors on Tuteria: by booking lessons directly from tutors’ subject profiles or by requesting an in-person interview before booking lessons.
Meeting requests are requests from interested clients to physically interview tutors before booking lessons. Often times, clients have special tutoring needs, and may need to speak with tutors to determine if they are a good fit.
Meeting requests only apply for monthly or long-term bookings of at least 24 hours. Hence clients are asked to pay 30% of tutors’ monthly or long-term price upfront to indicate their interest, before tutors are contacted about the request.
However, this doesn’t bind clients to tutors. If the meeting doesn’t turn out positive, clients can find other tutors. If the meeting turns out positive, then clients can proceed to book lessons with the tutor.
