Question: how do I make payment?
General Paper Private home Tuition Lessons
For GP individual lessons, the tuition fees will only be collected after every 4 lessons.
For the first 4 lessons, our Agency will only receive commission for completion of the first 2 lessons.
At the end of the first 2 lessons successfully completed by the GP tutor, the student/parent shall forward 50% of the tuition fees of the 2 lessons to the agency. The General Paper home tutor shall receive the remaining 50% at the end of the 4th lesson.
Thereafter, ALL the fees for subsequent lessons from the 5th lesson accrues to the home tutor.
Example: The General Paper home tuition teacher charges $100 /hr. In a typical month of 4 lessons, 8 hours of lessons wold have been conducted.
At the end of the 2nd lesson, the Agency claims 50% of the tuition fees of the 2 lessons as Agency commission.
Per hour: 100
Per lesson: 200
2 lessons: 400
Therefore, Agency commission is $400.

Question: What are the tuition fees and rates?
Our General Paper tuition rates are very affordable and very competitive. For instance, our group rates range from $35 to $45 per hour. The difference depends on when you or your child joins the lessons. The earlier you join, the lower the rate.
There’s also a nominal one-time administrative fee.
Question: What do you mean by your first lesson being RISK-FREE?
Any student can attend any of our GP group lessons and classes on a risk free basis. By this, we mean that you can come for the first GP lesson literally without any risk.
In the very unlikely event (read our GP tutor testimonials here) that we do not add value to your GP revision at all, naturally you are disappointed, and would like to stop all future lessons.
We do not object. That means, if after the risk free lesson, you wish to discontinue the second and all future lessons, there are totally NO charges to you. Hence, the meaning risk-free.
(Note: this applies at all times within 36 months of the date of the first risk-free lesson.)
(Note: The risk-free trial lesson does NOT apply to individual home tuition lessons, only group lessons.)
