Study Edge offers three core services to help you achieve academic success: Exam Review Sessions, Chapter Review Sessions, and Study Hours. Our goal is to make quality, entertaining, affordable tutoring available to everyone who wants better grades with less time studying. Our services provide a fun and efficient way to prepare for exams and master your course.
Study Edge offers three membership levels to meet your studying needs: Silver, Gold, and Diamond-VIP. In general we recommend a Gold membership for all of our students. Whether you are using Study Edge for two courses, or just want to be able to watch some videos more than once, Gold is typically what you’ll need.
When you purchase a membership, you are purchasing a certain number of tokens. With a Silver, you get 50, Gold – 100, and Diamond-VIP – 200. There are Review Sessions, individual concept explanations, practice problem video solutions, textbook problem video solutions, and more. Videos that have individual concept or problem explanations require only one token to watch. The longer videos are recordings of Live Review Sessions, which each require 15 tokens to watch. Don’t worry, you won’t get them confused, the videos that require 15 tokens to watch say so in the title.
With a membership, you’re paying for the amount of video you can watch each month. Tokens are replenished every month on the day the credit card is charged. 50 tokens is about 3-6 hours of video. So, with a Silver membership you can watch 3-6 hours of video content each month, with a Gold membership you can watch between 6 and 12 hours of video each month, and with a Diamond-VIP membership you can watch between 12 and 24 hours of video each month.
Individual tokens are also available for purchase, though it’s not as good of a deal. Twenty-five tokens can be purchased for a one time charge of $20 and 5 tokens can be purchased for a one-time charge of $5.
You can pay for a membership at any of our locations or on our Facebook Fan Page by clicking on the "Study Edge App" on the right. Once on the app, choose your school and primary subject. On the landing page, you will notice a "Buy Now" link on the top right hand corner. This is where you can enter your credit card information and purchase the membership that best fits your needs. Please don't hesitate to visit one of our physical locations for any assistance with purchasing memberships or call us at 1-888-97-STUDY.
At Study Edge we do charge for our services and we understand that many people believe tutoring should be free. Take transportation as an example; taking the bus is free and yet many people still buy scooters and cars. There are people that use both modes of transportation though, and like those people, Study Edge encourages students to utilize all of the resources available to them, the free resources and our paid services, as they see fit.

Individual Sessions (UF)
If you attend the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL, you can also pay for Review Sessions at the door. However, this is not recommended as it does not include tokens, which are needed to watch any supplemental material available on the Study Edge Facebook Application.
You may pay at the time of the Review Session by cash, check, or credit card. We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express.
