Google does not pay the tutors.  They hand the money to the tutoring
organization, in this case GNU, and the default for GNU is to keep it.
A few years ago that was the only possibility.  Purportedly that has
changed, but the information where to apply has not made it past me.
Presumably I need to ask the organizators.

Maybe.  It's somewhat disorganized right now.  But it won't become more
organized by me sitting on it.
