Credits - - simplify the payment process for both tutors and students on Profr.
How do Credits work?
- Students buy with which they purchase tutoring time with any tutor on Profr.
- Tutors and students agree a credit price for tutoring on a case-by-case basis.
- Students transfer to tutors.
- Tutors accumulate , which you convert for cash payments either to your Paypal account or to your bank account.
It's really very simple. We recommend PayPal for ease and simplicity - please consider opening a free account if you do not already have one.
What do I need to do?
Students - once you have logged in you can subscribe to a tutoring plan. We will charge you and credit your account each week for as much or as little as you choose. You can start with just 15 minutes a week.
Tutors - to simplify comparisons for students, all tutors display an approximate Credit Rate for 15 minutes of tutoring time rather than a rate in their own currency. This change makes it simpler for students to compare the relative prices of tutors globally, without having to look up exchange rate information.
Tutors are paid 1 US dollar (or local currency equivalent if preferred) for every 5 you earn..
How do I set my Rate?
To set your tutoring rate, please log in to your account on Profr. and edit your profile. Locate the field for your approximate credit rate, set your rate and click save. That's it!
Can I still negotiate rates individually?
Of course! The credit rate on your profile is only a guide for comparison. You will still need to agree individual credit rates with each student. You have complete flexibility over your prices.
How do I get paid?
Getting paid is simple. Once you have accumulated , click on the link in your control panel. There is a link there to redeem your via PayPal, alternatively you can contact support for a bank or wire transfer. It's easy!
