RATES

TUTORING

  • Available seven days per week with flexible morning, afternoon, and evening hours.
  • Base rate is $40 for one hour at your home or a public location.
  • Discounts:
    • Pre-paying for five 60-minute tutoring sessions results in 5% savings.  Total cost = $190.
    • Pre-paying for ten 60-minute tutoring sessions results in a 15% savings.  Total cost = $340.
  • 100% guarantee – If you are not satisfied with the progress made during a tutoring session, you will not be charged.  This policy will be honored once for each client.
  • Online support – If we have worked together in person, I gladly respond to brief questions submitted by e-mail or phone after our session has completed.  If a critique of a writing assignment is desired after a session has concluded, the composition may be submitted via e-mail as an attached Word or PDF file and I will review it one time for each paid session.
  • Cancellations – With at least 12 hours’ notice, a tutoring session can be cancelled with no consequences.  If less than 12 hours’ notice are provided, I maintain the right to require that the next scheduled session be pre-paid.
  • Missed appointments – If you miss a scheduled appointment (e.g. a “no-show” at a pre-arranged public location, or I arrive at your home and no student is present) then a $20 flat fee will be assessed.
  • Need-based reduced rates – If you are facing financial hardships, please contact me regarding reduced rates.

CONDITIONS FOR TUTORING

  • Tutoring sessions must take place in a student’s home or in a public location (library, coffee shop, community center, school building, etc.).
  • Tutoring in the home requires that a parent/guardian be present in the homestead during the entirety of the session.
  • Tutoring in the home requires a location that is open to other family members (kitchen, family room, etc.).  Tutoring will not occur in bedrooms, basements, or other areas of limited traffic.
  • If a parent/guardian is not home when I arrive for a tutoring appointment, I maintain the right to cancel that appointment — even if the student is prepared to work — because the lack of adult supervision violates the condition listed above.

CONSULTING

  • Available seven days per week with flexible morning, afternoon, and evening hours.
  • Base rate is $40 for one hour at your workplace, home, or other meeting location.
  • Document proofreading is $20 for one hour (billed in 15-minute increments) if the project does not require travel.  Proofreading includes the correction of errors in spelling, punctuation, grammar, and word choice.  Proofreading does not extend to improving sentence fluency, enhancing paragraph development or comprehensibility, or altering the document’s organization, structure, or length.
  • 100% guarantee – If you are not satisfied with the progress made during a one-hour consulting session, you will not be charged.  This policy will be honored once for each client.
  • Online and phone support – Available on an arranged basis.
