I just asked my new student to show me the communication from the website. I won't mention it but it is the one that asks you to forward money from the tutee, instead of just asking them for it all in the first place. I had it in the past where people have not known they have to pay extra money in the first lesson. So now, I make it clear in the communication before agreeing to start that, in the first lesson, there is a fee to pay that I have to forward on. I only had a quick look at what she had but I couldn't see it anywhere. I think this is a bit underhand on the part of the website, she said something flashed on the screen. I don't really get that much work off them so I can never remember how much exactly it is. I assume they split it into two so it appears cheaper to the tutee as they only seem to see the first bit. I also suspect there will be a number of tutors who just pay this themselves instead of asking for it. I just worked it out and the "small fee" (their words) is almost 60% of my hourly rate, that is on top of the £20 or whatever that she had already paid.
