What happens to my pay if a pupil does not show up to my tuition session? If a tutor prepares for a session and the pupil fails to show up, then we will try to rearrange the session. Please wait at least 20 minutes before deciding that the session is not going ahead, as pupils may be delayed by technical difficulties. Contact your School Coordinator once you have decided the session will need to be rearranged. Tutors won’t be paid in the first instance of the pupil not attending, however if the session is rearranged and your pupil fails to show up again, then you will be paid for this session. The assignment will be reviewed if this is a persistent problem.
