Actually my understanding is that TH are planning to add 25% to tutor's fees, not take 25% off. If all the fees go up by 25% then you'd be in the same position relative to other tutors on the website as before the increase. The students would just have to pay more. I do agree that 25% seems an exorbitant amount for what TH do. Maybe we've had a "golden age" for tutors, which is coming to an end as more and more greedy people try to cash in on the demand without actually doing any tutoring. It seems a bit like what is happening with schools, as MATs and non-teaching managers rip off money that should be used for teaching.
