FAQ on 10MT

10 Frequently Asked Questions

How does 10MT work?

Simply, tell us what subject and level you need help with, and 10MT will connect you instantly with its next available tutor. Each session lasts 10 minutes. You may leave before the end of the session but will still be charged the base fee (first 10 minutes). Extension is possible if you require one, and that the tutor is continually available. If an active session is disconnected for any reason, just look for it under the “Ongoing Sessions” section, and reconnect. 10MT will never charge you before the end of a session.

Are 10MT tutors really certified?

That’s 100%! All 10MT tutors possess one or more recognized, professional teaching qualification, and are familiar with local curriculum and pedagogy.

How much does 10MT charge?

For Singapore-based tutors, each session is chargeable at SGD 10, irrespective of subject and level, for the first 10 minutes (”Base Session”). There is no refund on unused minute(s) of Base Session. Extension if needed, is pro rata: SGD 1 per minute.

To illustrates, if a student consumes 8 more minutes after the Base Session, the total charge would be (10 + 8) SGD 18. As 10MT sessions laser-focus on problem-solving, students actually spend lesser time (and money) getting their homework and revision done, compared to tuition.

Yes, you may. 10MT allows up to 5 cancellations per day and 10 per week, without consequence.

Will a session be cut off as soon as the first 10 (or extended) minutes are up?
