iTutor Grahamstown's Rates
2018   (from 17/1)    R350/hour (transport incl)  for 1 hour of maths tutoring.

"Transport" means one round trip in the Grahamstown municipal area.  Further trips will be charged at R20 each

If consecutive hours are booked then the rate (2018) is R330/additional consecutive hour.
If the student's need is great and the student's parents resources are limited my rate may be negotiable.

I prefer payment in advance for tutorial services (lessons).  I suggest units of five lessons (R1750) or ten lessons (R3500).  During school holidays I offer an effective discount of 16,7% in the form of one free lesson for each five lessons booked.    A Summer Holiday Special Offer  holds the previous year's pricing until the start of the First (Easter) Term.
