If appropriate, some tutors will offer a trial lesson before booking in regular sessions together. This can give you a chance to meet your tutor and get to know them and their teaching styles. At your trial session, you can discuss your learning goals and create a plan of action for future lessons.
The cost of a trial session varies between tutors. Some will offer a trial session at a discounted hourly rate, with a minimum price of £5, whilst others may offer a 25% discount. Not every tutor will offer a discounted trial lesson but all are happy to book in an initial, one-off lesson.
Whether tutors choose to, or choose not to, offer a trial lesson does not reflect their quality or commitment as a tutor. Many of our top tutors will not offer trial sessions as they are in high demand already, so please be open-minded.
