With the arrival of maths tutors, online tutoring has been a huge boon for many, but there are still some drawbacks.
The most common ones are the inability to see the results of your tutor, and not knowing which one you’re supposed to pay.
Here’s how to make one.
Make sure you’ve already paid for your tutor’s service 1.
First, make sure you’re using the right service.
If you don’t have one yet, you can register and get started by clicking here.
Find out what you need to know before you start paying.
For instance, if you want to find out what kind of maths tutor you need, here’s what you should know before going online.
Make a list of the tasks that you want the tutor to perform.
If your tutor is doing a particular task and you’ve paid for it, you’ll know which tutor to pay for.
Set a payment plan.
If there’s a particular tutoring service you’re looking for, you might be able to choose a different fee for that.
You can also set a plan if you think you might need a different tutor to do the specific task.
Create a plan.
This will set a specific payment plan, and you’ll be able see how much money your tutor will get to work on your behalf.
Make payments online or by phone.
Paying by phone is the easiest option because the phone number and the name of the tutor you’re calling is displayed on your tutor profile.
If it’s a paid service, you don,t have to give them the name and address of the person you’re paying by. 7.
Choose a different payment plan if your tutor needs a different one.
You don’t need to pay the same price if you choose different payment plans.
Set up a contact email address.
If a payment is to be made by phone, you have to provide the email address of your paid tutor.
If the email is a [email protected], then you can just use that.
When the payment is made, confirm payment by email or phone.
If payments are to be completed online, you need your tutor to confirm that the payment has been made.
If payment is confirmed, check the status of the payment and make sure it’s paid.
If not, make another payment.
When you’ve made the payment, you should see the status and amount of the balance on your payment history.
If no balance has been paid by this point, it means that the tutor’s account is open.
If so, the tutor can then make more payments for the same task.
Keep your payment records up-to-date If your tutors account is closed or closed after you’ve finished paying, your balance will be frozen and you can’t access your tutoring account again.
Re-activate your tutorship account Once you’ve started making payments, you’re given two options: you can pay again in full by phone or online.
This is called a ‘re-activation’.
This means that you can make more appointments with the tutor and have a new appointment sent to your email address as soon as you receive the first payment.
Alternatively, you could choose to ‘freeze’ your tutor account and never pay for them again.
Complete a statement and confirm payment Once you complete the process of ‘freezing’ your tutor account, your payment has now been paid.
Check your balance Once you confirm that your balance is paid, you are sent a message telling you whether the payment was completed or not.
If that’s the case, you’ve completed the process for paying your tutor.
Review your payment report Once you have confirmed that your payment is complete, the amount you have paid is displayed to you in your tutor review, where you can review it and see whether you’ve spent enough money.
If we’re being honest, if your payment was £25, you probably spent a little bit more than that.
Check to see if your account has been suspended The same process applies to whether your tutor has been banned from paying for services, or has been allowed to continue paying.
If this is the case and you haven’t paid your tutor by the deadline, your tutor may be banned from all online tutors in the UK.
If, on the other hand, your account is suspended, you may be able be blocked from future payments by the regulator.
If any of this happens, you will be notified by the financial services watchdog.
You’ll be asked to contact them to get your payment refunded, and they’ll ask you to contact the regulator to get back in touch.
