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.
