Questions/Answers

Where do we meet? 

Unless we agree otherwise, our meetings are online with cameras OFF.

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 20min/meeting.

What’s the price? 

There  are  few  factors  determining  the  price:  the  difficulty  of  the  course,  how  long   until   the  final,  how  behind/ahead   is   the  student,  how  communicative  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 junior high school or younger $35.                                                                                                                For senior high school or older $65.                                                                                                             The first hour is CREDITED if you hire us within a week of taking it.

Can my price/h be less than first hour? 

Yes   when   student   starts   during  the  first  week  of  the  course .

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   do  not  make  a  habit  of  short  notice  cancelations,  and   you  meet  your  minimum  tutoring  time/week,  if  any.

What if I skip meeting my tutor for a few weeks?

Depends  on  circumstances  surrounding  the student;  can  be  nothing – all  is  good,  we  just  continue  like  nothing  happened.   Can be that  you can  not  keep  the  same  $/h  for  the  rest  of   the  semester;   in  such  a  case  we  will  recalculate   your  leftover  time   to  reflect  the  difference.  In  some  circumstances,  after  few  weeks  of  no-show,  the  student  can  not  continue  tutoring  with  us  for  the  rest  of  the  semester.

Why do I have a different tutoring time/$/week, than my friend from the same class?

Most  likely is that you had different starting  point;  also because  different students need different  help  to  achieve  their  goals .

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  skills  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  2Y  from the  date  of  the purchase.  Please know that with the new course or new student the new price/h will adjust to the change.

No show for tutoring as scheduled?

If you let us know about it more than 48h in advance, all is good; we just reschedule.

– 24-48h  canceling/rescheduling is 60min. penalty.
– canceling/rescheduling within 24h before the meeting, is 90min. penalty.
– in the case that the second short-notice cancelation happens (less than 24h), the price/h you have for this services, is not valid any more for the current semester.
– no show (without any note/call/txt): 180min prepaid time penalty; plus  you can not be our student any more.
