How long is each tutoring session?
We will start with 60min/meeting and try to lower it down to at least 45min/meeting asap; the goal is 15min/meeting.
The whiteboard given to you is autosaved by default. We will use that property to communicate without being online in the same time! This part of our tutoring is pro-bono. Socrates Tutoring is 24/7 math and/or physics help option for students. Technology made it possible. We will coach you how to get there. Anyhow, for the most of math courses, classes are daily; why not communicate with your tutor more than what you paid for?
Where do we meet?
Unless we agree otherwise, our meetings are online with cameras OFF.
Can my price/h be less than first hour?
Yes when student starts during the first week of the course; and/or is younger than Gr9; and/or has used our services in previous years.
What if child is too young for online tutoring?
Nowadays, a child can not be too young to interact with the screen. Quality of that interaction is the question here. Quality interaction requires very well planned guidance. Parents/guardians will be coached how to play an integral part in the process until student becomes self-sufficient.
Will my tutoring price increase as the course progresses?
No. As long as you meet your minimum tutoring time/week, and you do not make a habit of short notice cancelations.
What if I skip meeting my tutor for a week or two?
Depends on circumstances surrounding the student; can be nothing – all is good, we just continue like nothing happened; can be that you can not purchase more hours for the semester. In any case your leftover time is still yours to use, or to pass on to someone else.
Why do I have a different tutoring time/$/week, than my friend from the same class?
Because you and your friend do not have the same prerequisite knowledge and ability to apply already learned material; or you started with tutoring late in the course.
Can I record our meetings?
Why not ? But also why yes ? You would benefit the best, if you make paper notes and do required exercises to master the skill you just understood. By writing , we learn deeper and retain longer.
What happens to my prepaid time that I did not use?
Your leftover time is still yours to use, or to pass on to someone else; up to 5Y from the date of purchase. Please know that with the new course or new student the new price/h will adjust to the change.
What’s the price?
There are 3 main factors determining the price: the difficulty of the course, how long until the final and how behind/ahead is the student. You will get the EXACT price/h for the EXACT course after your first hour.
What is the price for the first hour?
For high school or younger $35. For college/university $55;
No show for tutoring as scheduled?
If you let us know about it more than 48h in advance, all is good; we just reschedule.
