Eric replied on 9/17/2012

While I appreciate the feedback, this simply isn't true. I would never hold my student accountable to a policy he/she didn't sign. My written policy had nothing to do with her being charged. A week following our first lesson, Katherine cancelled an hour and a half before the scheduled lesson time, only after I had texted to confirm. If I wouldn't have texted, I surely would have been stood up. Katherine was charged for the lesson because my online profile clearly states that I have a 24 hour cancellation policy. She had 7 days to tell me she wasn't planning on continuing, or that she had any qualm with my policy. She claims to be a tutor as well, and during or first lesson, shared with me her woes of dealing with bad reviews. She offered me nothing but praise on my teaching style and organization. She would not have been charged by Wyzant if she would have had the courtesy to let me know in advance that she wasn't coming; the same courtesy I imagine she expects from her students.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Clarinet

I have played the clarinet for 24 years, and have been teaching for nearly 20 years. I have played in many different ensembles around the country, and currently play in the Disneyland band. I teach all styles, along with music theory.

Proofreading

I graduated with honors in English and Spanish. I have worked with numerous companies as a translator and proofreader.
