How to set your hourly rate

After you submit your transcript, you will be prompted to set your hourly rate.

You can set the same rate for all of the subjects or courses that you tutor (this will happen by default) or choose different rates, depending on your level of proficiency in each course.

Change the rate of an individual subject or course under "Courses" in the menu. 

Modify the rate by clicking "Set Your Rate."
