Flat Hourly Rate tells TutorBird that this tutor will be paid the same amount per hour taught, regardless of how much the student(s) are charged for those lessons. For example, if the tutor is set to earn $30/hr, TutorBird will automatically add payroll entries for lessons based on time taught (i.e. $15 for a 30 minute lesson), even if the student pays more or less than that for their lesson.

Percentage of Tutor's Revenue tells TutorBird to make the tutor's income proportional to the amount of money charged to the student. This amount is always calculated before sales tax. For example, if the business takes a 10% cut of all lessons taught, the tutor's pay rate would be 90% of business revenue.
