Q.  How do I know that the tutoring is working for my child?

Sessions are paid in advance. You may choose bi-weekly or monthly.  

Group sessions are billed one month in advance.  There is no weekly or biweekly option for that since the groups are formed according to level.

 

Q. What if I have to cancel a session?

A. If you have to cancel a session, I ask that you give me 24 hours advance notice in order to receive a makeup session.  If an emergency happens (with less than 24 hours notice) and you are unable to keep your appointment, please reschedule a makeup lesson, otherwise, you will be charged for the session.  

 

All lessons canceled by me will be made up in a timely manner.

A.  At my first session, I conduct a reading assessment to determine the reading level and what are your child's difficulties.  After three months, I conduct a follow-up assessment to determine if trouble areas have been mastered and what the trouble areas still need to be addressed. 

Q. What is your hourly rate ?

A. I charge an hourly rate of 45.00 per hour.  I charge the market rate based upon region,experience, qualifications and results. There are no registration fees or extra testing fees which some centers charge.
