How is the agency fee calculated for short-term assignments?

Short-term assignments are defined by students who only require a fixed number of lessons until a certain exam date (usually less than 8 weeks of lessons). Long-term assignments that are terminated due to various reasons are NOT considered as short-term assignments.

For short-term assignments (a.k.a crash courses) we generally collect 25% of the TOTAL tuition fee but the exact percentages may differ and we will let tutors know beforehand.​​

SmileTutor is committed to protect the welfare of our tutors. For short-term assignments only, our commission shall not exceed 25% of the tutor’s total earnings.
