Pricing is an important part of your business and how much you charge is completely up to you. Adding your prices has two major benefits:
- Prices help the right customers find your business.
- Customers are more likely to contact you if you have prices listed.
We know that how you charge for services varies depending on your business and the service itself. Depending on your service, we allow you to set up a base price or a price range.
Your Base Price is typically an hourly rate or flat rate; something that doesn't really change. In addition to the base price, we provide a spot for extra or additional fees such as a travel fee or cost of materials. For example, a math tutor may charge $60 per hour, plus a $10 fee to cover the cost of books that the student will need for testing.
A Price Range is available for some services, where pricing a job is a little more complicated. An example would be test preparation. A tutor who offers test preparation services may offer standard tutoring sessions, mock tests services, and/or lower rates for students who commit to a summer-long preparation course. This is when a price range is helpful.
Your starting price and a link to your profile are listed in search results so that customers can find your business and learn more before contacting you. Your starting price is just an estimate.
Sometimes you need more details to offer an accurate price. That's fine, but considering adding a starting price to reflect the minimum the customer can expect to pay and use your profile to tell customers that you will be able to give them a more accurate, personalized price after you speak with them.
Add your prices
Setting your prices is easy to do, here's how:
- Log in to your Tutors.com account
- Select Services
- Click on a service you want to prices to.
- Click the "How much do you charge per job?" box

If you don't see the box references in step 4, then you need to setup your preferences for that service. After your preferences are complete, the pricing option will be made available to you.
Updates to your prices are effective immediately.
Only you know how much you are worth and what is a fair price for your services, so set your prices and start meeting the right customers.
