Do I have to pay any commission fees?

Our services are free-of-charge for parents and students. You are only required to pay for lessons conducted. There will be an agency commission fee charged on the tutors (not on you). A portion of the total lesson fees usually in the first four weeks of lessons will be allocated to SmileTutor as the agency commission. This is deducted directly from the tutor’s fees, so you do not pay anything extra.

However, there is a 7% GST imposed on the agency commission. For example, if you engage a tutor for $50 per class for once a week, the agency commission will be $100. Hence, the GST imposed is $7. This is only a one-off payment only and from 3rd lesson onward there is no GST since you pay the tutor directly. The tutor’s fees are not subjected to GST.

To facilitate the process for us to collect the agency fees, you are required to cooperate with us by transferring the allocated agency commission (usually 50% of the 1st month fees) + GST directly to SmileTutor. Thereafter, you will pay the remaining lessons to the tutor directly. Our Tuition Coordinators will inform you of the full payment details and instructions upon lesson confirmation.
