Gengo Tutors works on a point system. Our system gives you ways to earn free points, or if you want you can purchase additional points by logging into your Member account and clicking on "Recharge Points". Points are used the first time you choose to contact a new lead. Once you have used your points to contact the lead, all future communication with the lead using the Gengo Tutors are free. You just have to use points the first time. The number of points that the first contact cost depend on how and when you communicate with them. Through Gengo Tutors you can get leads for new language students in 2 ways.
Answering Want Ads
This is the most common way to find leads in Gengo Tutors. When you answer the wanto ads in our system you will be charged a certain number of posts depending on how many other Members have responded to the same want ad. The more people who have replied, the cheaper it will be for you to reply. That being said, the people who contact the interested party sooner have a much higher chance of getting them as a client. So it is up to you to decide how much each want ad is worth to you.
