FAQ

Do you assign homework?

Yes, homework is always assigned between tutoring sessions.

Homework acts as an important bridge between sessions to establish a sense of continuity and, more importantly, it serves to reinforce the skills taught in each session. The amount of homework is negotiable and will depend on the subject matter and on the student’s availability.

Do you offer online tutoring?

Yes, using Zoom, but with certain cautions. The biggest drawback for the student is distraction. The student must be located in a space that is quiet, where he or she will not be interrupted or distracted for the duration of the session.

What age students do you tutor?

High school and college age students.

How do you take payment?

I invoice a client after every even-numbered lesson. Payment may be by check or by using Venmo.

Attendance

Students are expected to be prompt.

A student may cancel or postpone a session with at least 24 hours notice, and as long as scheduling cancellations and adjustments are not a regular occurrence.

Students who regularly cancel or do not give 24 hours notice win be charged the full amount for the session missed.

What kind of improvement can I expect from test prep tutoring?

Improvement in the 100-200 range or greater per subject is common but cannot be guaranteed as the student’s motivation is a major factor. Additional considerations would include the number of hours spent tutoring, how seriously the student takes “class” instruction and homework, and the student’s understanding and acceptance that test prep requires a process approach rather than a “single event” mindset.
