Some clients prefer to interview the tutor in-person before booking lessons. However, this only applies for long-term or monthly bookings of at least 24 hours in total.
From the tutor’s subject page, click Request an Interview
Enter the best time you’ll like the tutor to call you
Choose a preferred payment option and click Proceed
The tutor would contact you at your preferred time to schedule an interview. If the interview is successful, you can proceed to book lessons with the tutor. If not, you can find another tutor.
30% upfront payment
In order to submit a request, we ask you to deposit 30% of the tutor’s monthly or long-term fee. This payment is required as proof of commitment on the part of clients to hire the tutor if interview turns out positive. This also helps encourage the tutor to attend the interview. It however, does not bind the client to the tutor.
The payment is loaded into your account on Tuteria, and will be automatically applied from your next booking with any tutor on Tuteria. So you’ll only need to pay the balance.
For example, if a tutor’s monthly fee is ₦20,000, you’ll pay ₦8,000 to request an interview. When next you book lessons, the ₦8,000 will be automatically applied, so you only pay the remaining ₦12,000 if you decide to hire the same tutor.
Number of Interview Requests
Clients may only request to interview one tutor at a time. When a request is made, you’ll have up to 1 week to meet with the tutor. Requests are marked as completed when you hire the same tutor, or if the interview turns out negative.
Clients may only make a maximum of two meeting requests per subject. Once you’ve requested to meet a second tutor for the same subject, you may no longer request tutors for that subject.
Clients will be required to pay the 30% upfront fee every time they request to meet tutors in a new subject. Payment is not required if request is for the same subject.
Clients may not request to see the same tutor more than once.
