Refunding tutees?

    Has anyone had the experience of their tutees not getting as good a grade as you'd hoped?

    I've been tutoring a brother and sister who got C and a B in their November GCSE who've just got the same results again in June. Their parents have forked out over £800 since November and I just feel bad that they didn't do any better.

    Should I refund them?

    Don't be silly. You've a living to make. Should their teachers at school refund their salaries too? No way.

    I agree with Maurice.. do not give them a refund!

    You tutored them but they will only get results based on what they put in.
