Prices are at least 200% more affordable than competitors (even at maximum cost) due to our zero-profit pricing. The calculation is simply weekly cost divided by total number of sign-ups. See the cost breakdown for weekly costs during peak-season vs off-peak.

How Our Pricing Works

FAQs

The cost to provide our services is shared across all members. Because we only charge enough to cover costs, we need to have payment secured before we can offer a discounted price. Therefore, discounts are carried into the next month's pricing. 

 

For example, if the total cost is $2000, and last month there were 100 sign-ups, this month's membership would be $20/week per person ($2000/100 sign-ups). If we then had only 80 sign-ups this month at $20/week, next month's price would be $25/week ($2000/80).

 

Prices and discounts are staggered by one month so that we can secure payment and confirm that our costs are covered for the month to come.

You can sign up whenever you want. You will always pay the current month's price at the time of sign-up and your membership will always be active for one full month from the date of purchase.

For example, let's say the price for May is $30/week. If you sign-up on the 1st of May, your membership would expire on the 31st of May. If you signed up on the 20th of May, you would pay May's price of $30/week and your membership would expire on the 19th of June. If you then decided to sign-up for another month on the 25th of June, you would then pay June's pricing, with your month expiring on the 24th of July.

You can sign up whenever you want. You will always pay the current month's price at the time of sign-up and your membership will always be active for one full month from the date of purchase.

For example, if...

  • It's currently May 15th
  • The price during May is $50/week

If you decide to sign up, you will pay $50/week x 4 weeks (=$200). Your membership expires after 4 weeks.

If you decide to sign up again straight away, you would pay for June's pricing, which might be different. Or you could not renew and sign up on any other month.

 

You will always have access to one full month of membership, no matter when you pay. You will always pay the current month's price, listed at the time of sign-up.

Please see the question "Do I have to sign-up at the beginning of the month?" to learn more.

 

If you don't urgently need help and there are only a few days until the end of the month, and if you know that next month's pricing is cheaper than this month, you should wait a few days until the next month's pricing!

Approximately 40% of our students are in year 12 or year 13. As our services are fully online, high school students are able to study ahead using our online Academy and utilise our tutors as well. However, we recommend you to book a consultation with us first as this may not be the most advisable plan for your situation.

If you would like to pay for multiple months at once, please speak with our student advisor here to organise a custom membership option for you.

Our friendly tutors are handpicked previous students who have received A+ for the paper, have exceptional communication skills, and genuinely care about students and the work we do. They complete a full tutor training course on evidence-based teaching techniques with constant monthly evaluations. Tutors are also kept up-to-date on any changes to the papers every year (which are usually minimal). Our tutors receive more training than any other company in the market.

As a registered non-profit, our purpose is not to make as much money as possible. Our purpose is to help students. As long as we are able to fund this, we have no need to charge more.

We're proud of our quality and believe it is the best in the market. Not only do we have the highest level of staff training, strictest quality control, most frequent student experience evaluations, and most evidence-based course designs, but of the 200 to 300 students we work with every year, approximately 80% are from word of mouth. Relative to the money spent on ads and marketing, we have 20:1 more word of mouth referrals compared to our competitors.
