The costs for lessons are set by each Tutor and Students can choose what price range they want to consider when searching for tutors.

Payment on the site is set up so that no cash is exchanged. To use the site, during the registration process Parents of students will be guided to set up a PayPal account with their credit card, within the App. The cc entry details are made directly to PayPal and the App administrators have no access to those details ever. The tutors need to provide bank details to accept the payments. The Payment for each lesson will be initiated by the tutor at the end of each lesson. The parent will be automatically notified anytime a payment is made. The App is designed to ensure no payments can be initiated before the lesson is completed.

TutorSmart will deduct 10 percent of the payment earned by the tutor as a commission
