|INITIAL SESSION - 30 MINUTES FREE OR 2 HRS FOR $60|
|I offer a free
thirty-minute session designed so that I can assess your needs and you
can determine whether I am the right tutor for you. Often my first
meeting with a student will go for an hour, in which case the first half
hour will be free and the second half hour will be $25. There are no
expectations that go with this session. If, after this meeting, you
decide that I am not the tutor for you, I will accept your decision, no
questions asked, and make no further attempts to contact you.
2 Hrs for $60 is also available as an initial session offer. However, I highly discourage this offer for anyone below Junior or Senior level in High School. 2 hours is a long time for a teenager to focus on one topic. After the first 60 to 90 minutes it can become counter-productive. And, again, there are no strings attached. Even if you are looking to cram for a test, with no intention of following up with more tutoring, I encourage you to take me up on this offer. Who knows, perhaps you'll need me again one day. To say the least, if you like my work, you can refer me to others.
|After your initial session, my
rates are $50/hour.
|Where are tutoring sessions held?|
|I generally tutor in the client's
home. However, if you feel more comfortable, I can meet in a nearby
coffee shop, library, etc. If you are willing to meet near my home
(Overlea), I offer $10 off my standard hourly rate. The White Marsh area offers some
fairly good locations to meet - Panera Bread, Barnes and Noble, or the
White Marsh Library are all good examples.
|How often do we meet?|
|My recommendation is once a week
for an hour. But, if you're trying to play catch up, twice a week might
be in order. There is, however, no requirement. I am willing to meet
bi-weekly, once a month, even once every six months. I have students who
call me every once in a blue moon and say, "Hey, Math Wizard, I've got a
test coming up and I need some help!" As long as there is
room in my calendar, I'll fit you in.
|No hassle policy|
|If you are coming to my home, you
may cancel at any time prior to our appointment. If I am making a house
call, all I ask is that you contact me prior to when I get on the road
to meet you. If the cancellation comes after that, I'll have to charge
you for an hour of my time.
Also, there is no contract between us. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to have me as a tutor, I will discontinue my service, no questions asked.
|If you are taking the same course
with the same teacher, and are at approximately the same level, group
tutoring may be an option. One on one tutoring is always the most
effective. However, tutoring in groups is slightly more affordable. Call
|My normal hours are Monday through Thursday from 4:30PM to 9:30PM. But, if necessary, I can often meet on the weekends or during my lunch hour. Usually, if you're flexible, I can make time for you.|
