    Adequate training

    Our Customer Success team is dedicated to providing tutors with continuous support. The team checks in on tutors after their sessions to make sure that everything went smoothly and that tutors have the tools they need in order to communicate with students efficiently and effectively.

    Transparent pricing

    For all students that Tutors find on TutorOcean, the Tutors are paid in full on what they quote less a small fee that is deducted from the tutor’s rate to maintain the infrastructure of TutorOcean’s platform, students and parents pay what they see.  Depending on certain cases or certain specific situations, some conditions apply.

    Ratings & reviews

    The quality and depth of a tutor’s experience are reflected in the reviews given by students and parents. Our Customer Success team strives to verify reviews in order to ensure the quality of tutoring sessions and the validity of the transaction.


    Online sessions are recorded upon agreement between the student/parent and tutor and are available for download for all parties involved. This holds everyone accountable and is helpful when it comes to revision and preparing for the next session.

    TutorOcean may review any sessions where a report has been made by any person using the platform for the purpose of investigating abuse.
