The hourly tuition fee is flexible!



Hi,
Is it right and idiomatic to say the above when I want to express that the tutorial tuition here is paid by the hour, and the hourly pay ranges from US 20 to 40 dollars? If not, how should I say it right? Thanks.

    How about saying something like, "the fee ranges from 20-40 dollars an hour"? If it says the fee is flexible I would think that the fee was set but I could negotiate it.

    If I assume that the expression is right , I think you have to say fees instead of fee. That is because you are dealing with 1 fee per 1 hour.2 fees with 1 more hour...

    Flexible is much too general, and you have not given enough information.

    What information are you trying to give?
    Does the rate depend on what the client can negotiate?
    Does the rate depend on the nature of the tuition?
    Does the rate depend on the skill level of the student?

    Without that information I cannot suggest an appropriate term.

    I agree with Panjandrum, it's important to tell what the rate depends on.

    I don't agree with Resplendent Man. It sounds to me like there is just one fee.
