How does tutoring online work?
Students must have access to a computer, webcam, headset with a microphone and high-speed internet. We can also upload any images or worksheets into the whiteboard. Sometimes we'll watch videos or use other online tools. It’s very interactive and surprisingly easy!
Most students prefer to write primarily on their own paper during our sessions. However, some students may prefer to write on the online whiteboard. To make this easier, I'd recommend using a Wacom tablet.
How often should my child have tutoring sessions?
Students may register for one thirty minute session per week. However, two or more sessions are recommended to accelerate the level of progress. If a student is motivated and needs help, tremendous progress can be made with sessions three times per week. We can discuss this more during our consultation and also adjust as needed.
How does scheduling work?
For most students, we'll have sessions at the same time each week. We'll discuss this during our initial consultation, and we can also discuss changes to our schedule at any time.
How much does it cost?
30 minute session, 1 time per week = $30
30 minute session, 2 times per week = $60
30 minute session, 3 times per week = $90
30 minute session, 4 times per week = $120
Initial payments will include a $35 fee for consumable materials. Materials will be mailed to your home. As students advance through reading levels a consumable materials fee will be billed as needed.
How does payment work?
Payment in advance of services is required. Payment is made on a weekly basis via an automatic payment plan with Stripe. You will automatically be charged weekly, on Sundays, for lessons occurring during the week. Monthly payment options are also available upon request. We will set this up through the payment processor the first week. Any tutoring sessions missed in accordance with the cancellation policy, and cannot be rescheduled will be refunded by pro-rating the following week, unless the student or parent requests otherwise.
What is your cancellation policy?
A minimum of 24 hours notice is required for cancellations. With sufficient notice, a mutually agreeable make-up lesson time can be provided. However, it is the client’s responsibility to make contact with us to reschedule lessons. No-shows or cancellations not made within a specified time frame will result in a charge equal to the scheduled session. In the event of tutor cancellations, sessions will be rescheduled at a mutually agreeable time; usually within 7 days of the missed session.
