    I've been asked to tutor a current student's younger sister starting in September, so will be tutoring both for an hour each on the same evening. What sort of discounts do people offer in this situation? Would be interested to hear! Thanks in anticipation.

    I've always discounted my sessions if they exceed an hour. I charge £30 an hour or £50 for a block of two hours. I travel to people's houses and that is the reason I'm expensive. I'm actually going to stop discounts or offer them if they book in bulk, because I've had the worse client list this year- constant cancellations!

    They haven't asked, but I thought it would be a nice gesture! I charge £25 per hour and was thinking of charging £45 for the two hour block. Bearing in mind I've already tutored the son for a year and they have been good, reliable clients.

    I'm not at all business-minded by the way!

    Cheers for the reponses.

    I don't discount. My time is worth my hourly rate and that is it. I have been known to do extra sessions in exchange for babysitting though.

    I think £45 is reasonable given that the circumstances

    Thanks. Appreciate the responses and I've taken all comments into consideration - still haven't made my mind up though!
