Helppo’s fees are 30-40% less than tutors with the same qualifications in Hong Kong. Our reduced cost comes from our lack of overhead for renting physical tutoring space, and we pass on these savings to you! New students can attend a free trial class and participate in a 30-minute one-on-one session with a designated instructor.
If this instruction proves helpful, we then pair you with the same tutor to conduct weekly sessions. Students can then get in contact with their tutor through Helppo’s platform to inform them of difficulties they experience with their homework, or concepts they are struggling with in class. This allows our instructors to plan their sessions accordingly, and through Helppo’s instant messaging feature and file-sending tools, students can keep their tutors up-to-date. After the trial session is over, the student can then choose to continue sessions and sign up for tutoring on Helppo. Helppo’s tutoring service is extremely flexible, as there is no bundled fee or required number of sessions per student.
