How much does it cost?

  • As part of our community-based learning initiative, we charge a small fee to support the running of our tutoring programmes and help cover some of the costs.
  • Our tutoring sessions cost only £6.25 per hour (that’s £25 per subject, per month). The cost is further reduced to £5 per hour during special promotional periods.
  • Payment is taken on a monthly basis in advance of the tutoring sessions.
  • Unless otherwise stated, each month usually comprises 4 weeks. If there are fewer weeks in the month (e.g. during the month of December due to the Christmas holidays) then the fees for the month with be reduced accordingly.
  • In addition to the monthly fee, there is a fee of £10 per subject to pay each academic year for the materials that are used at the learning centre.
