Could your organization apply for free licence ?
Or you could also get a free account (it has limitations, but that may be enough for you):

You may already be using it, but that would be why Apple providesXcode's free provisioning, and there may be a chance you can also use it to build to your tutor's device...it would need to be physically connected to your computer, tho, and I'm not sure if it has to be seen as your owned device. Might be worth a try as Apple does not provide for a casual distribution scheme otherwise.
