Simptutors’s payment system is designed to make transferring money between clients and tutors as simple and reliable as possible. Here’s how it works:

1. Clients pay through Simptutors when they book lessons, which is loaded in session within the client’s wallet account in order to secure the lessons and notify the tutor,

2. Simptutors transfers the money to tutors only after clients confirm lessons have been taught or 3 days after tutors have submitted the lessons into our system.

3. If there is an issue during the cause of the lessons, you can be confident that Simptutors will withhold payments and carry out further investigation to decide the best cause of action for both parties.

Using Simptutors’s payment system is required when booking lessons, and it helps ensure that both parties are protected under our Terms of Service, cancellation policies, Refund Policy, and other safeguards.

Paying outside the Simptutors system is not secure. We cannot protect your data and payments, or provide access to these benefits when lessons are not booked directly through Simptutors.

Clients prefer to re-hire tutors through Simptutors because it also helps monitor all lessons to ensure they are fully delivered before releasing payments; and gives clients the opportunity to review tutor’s performance as well as get feedback.
However, to help cover the costs of running these services, Simptutors automatically includes service fees in each transaction.
