Students are responsible for selecting the right tutor dependent on their needs. In making selection decisions, it is up to the student to review and investigate the tutor’s self-reported credentials, education, and experience as well as check the reviews of other students.
Users are responsible for purchasing Credit. Before any Online Tutoring Session begins, Users are to make sure adequate credit are available for the session.
For booking, Users must have at least RM10 per session i.e. 20 ringgit for 2 sessions. Before session has started, the student must have enough Credit to pay for the entirety of the session.
Tutors are responsible to determine their own rate for the Online Tutoring Sessions. Tutor fees for the Services are automatically deducted from User’s Credit account after the Online Tutoring Session is completed.
Tutors are to agree to pay for the Services according to the following structure
|Total Hours Worked Forthnightly
calculated at 1st and 15th of each month
|Percentage of Fees|
|0 - 10 hours||30%|
|11 – 30 hours||25%|
|31 or more hours||20%|
Tutor fees will be deposited forthnightly no earlier than every 2nd and 16th of the month.
Both students and tutor are allowed to cancel the booked session 24 hours before the start time due to any reasonable reasons but not just because the can. We encouraged students and tutors to reschedule the session if any complications arise.
If the Student does not show up for the session, signalled by being absent for the first 15 minutes of a scheduled session, rm5.00 will be deducted from your overall cashout balance on TeachMe as cost of the services by TeachMe.
If the Tutor does not show up for the scheduled session, the Tutor will be given warnings from TeachMe and will incur a RM5.00 penalty as cost of the services by TeachMe. Students and Tutors with frequent late will be given one or more warnings from TeachMe before being removed from the service entirely.
If you are late for your scheduled tutoring session, you will still be billed from the start of the scheduled time. For example, if you are 20 minutes late for a 30-minute session, the 30-minute session as scheduled will be billed to your account.
If you are 15 minutes late or more, your tutor may cancel the session. If they choose to do so, you will be billed for the entire duration of the scheduled session.
If your tutor is 15 minutes late or more, you will have the option of cancelling the entire session at no charge to you.
If tutors are 15 minutes late or more, your student will have the option of cancelling the session altogether.
Tutors will incur a RM5.00 due to being late. Tutors will not be required to pay this amount, but it will be deducted from the overall cashout from TeachMe.
If your student chooses to end the session early, you will still be paid in full for the time slot. For example, if your student chooses to end a one-hour scheduled session after 45 minutes, you will still be paid for one hour of tutoring based on the tutor payment matrix.
Tutors are required to terminate the session once the allocated time has elapsed. If Students are in need of additional time, Students are encouraged to schedule an additional appointment. There is no automatic scheduling of extended session thus the tutors will not be paid for any extra time.
Tutors must be professional and of proper attire, proper venue, proper language.
