In-person: - Late: If the student is at least 15 minutes late without notice, 75% of the lesson's hourly rate will be charged. If at least 30 minutes late without notice, the full rate will be charged. - No-show: If the student does not show up after 30 minutes, I will end the session and the full rate will be charged.   Depending on the circumstances, if the student wishes to cancel and I am not given 3 hours notice, 50% of the normal rate will be charged.

Cancellation Policy Please provide me with at least 24-hours notice in the event that you need to cancel. No shows or cancellations with less than 24-hours notice are subject to be charged for the full rate of the scheduled lesson. Of course, emergencies do occur and will be considered on a case-by-case basis. In-home and online lessons require a large commitment from the family/student and instructor alike. It is my goal to be as accommodating as possible. However, it is important to understand the above policy to ensure that lessons are conducted consistently and effectively. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.   

I am a repeat test taker. I took my exam prior to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. When I got my Candidate Performance Report and read that I failed the NCLEX, I felt devastated. I am an accelerated student who went straight into a Nursing PhD from my BSN program, and I failed the NCELX. I cried my eyes out. It took me 2 months to even think about the NCLEX again because I was so upset with myself for 1) not studying more and 2) for scheduling my exam too soon after BSN graduation. My advisor reached out to find me a tutor, someone to guide me as I prepared for the NCLEX again. I reached out to all the contacts she gave me but no one was as warm and welcoming as Akeeka. Upon receiving her initial email, I knew she was the best fit for me. Even during our first meeting, all I could think was how much better I felt just by talking to her. Akeeka’s words inspired and motivated me to push through the last 3 weeks before my exam. And that’s what I did. Her curriculum is definitely intense... read more

Please give notice at least six hours before the start time of a scheduled session if you have to cancel or reschedule for any reason. If you cancel a scheduled session less than 6 hours in advance but at least 30 minutes before the start time, a fee of up to 50% of the cost of the lesson will be charged. If you cancel a lesson later than 30 minutes before the scheduled start time, a fee of up to 100% of the cost of the lesson will be charged. If you show up to a lesson late, the charge for the lesson will still be for the duration between the scheduled start time and the actual end time. If you are more than 30 minutes late to a session and have not communicated that you will arrive late, the lesson will be considered cancelled and a fee of up to 100% of the cost of the lesson will be charged. When calculating a cancellation fee, a session duration of one hour will be assumed in all cases unless a different duration has been agreed upon beforehand.... read more

Are you looking for a tutor? Someone who can actually help you or your child? What are you willing to pay for expert help? Oh, these aren't really experts here, so $10/hour should be fine. Beware: you will get what you pay for.   There are indeed many experts on Wyzant in many fields. There are also housewives, students, and retirees who believe this is a nice, easy way to earn money on the side. So who do you want to hire?   For $10/hour I can barely get my yard tilled by the Mexican on the next street. I can't get even a neighbor to check the broken pipe under my sink. I can't have someone look at my car, or the electrical job I need in the garage. I can't get a dog groomer, or a cheap haircut. And you believe you will get qualified, expert tutoring help for $10/hour? Think again.   You will get what you pay for. In my field of ESL, you may find someone willing to have a "conversation" with you, or try to fix your term paper. You won't... read more

When I was a professor teaching teachers how to teach English as a Second Language, I developed an online course in which I made video lectures and lesson demonstrations.  I got great feedback from students about how they felt they were in a "live" class.  In another class, I had students videotape their lesson demonstrations and share them with the class.  These demonstrations also became part of their e-portfolios that they could show perspective employees. We should also use other kinds of visuals in online learning. The more we can simulate face-to-face interaction in online learning, the better, because students learn many different ways, as shown in the concept of multiple intelligences, so students need multi-sensory input to learn content and multi-sensory ways to demonstrate that they have mastered content.  

When I am doing math with students I often find using the text tool the most efficient way of quickly typing a math problem. The equation editor is awesome but can be overkill, think: a simple inequality.   x + 37 ≥ 45   I printed this list so I can make symbols like ≥ and ≈ easily. I hope this link helps others.   To use: click the text tool and add regular keyboard symbols. When you want to add a mathematical symbol (make sure num lock is on) hold the Alt key on the left side of your keyboard and while still holding Alt use the numbers on the NUMERICAL KEYBOARD (the numbers across the top of your keyboard won't work) that correspond to the symbol you want to insert. Note some begin with 0 and some do not. Alt 0247 ÷ and Alt 247 ≈ give totally different results. Enjoy!   Alt Codes for Basic Operators Alt 0215 × Multiplication Sign Alt 0247 ÷ Obelus / Division Sign Alt 37 % Percentage Sign Alt 0137... read more

My tutoring is geared to delivering the best quality work. I've done plenty of tutoring for multiple students--2, 3, 4 at a time. After that it blends into the characteristics of teaching. Generally speaking, you can either go fully customized 1:1 or alternate focus with the extra students. If you alternate, it's similar to having separate sessions. If there are just two students the same age and largely compatible, you get about 80% of the benefits of tutoring. Rarely I have two students who can't function without each other and then they get more benefits than they would with 1:1. When my customer fully understands that they might get more benefits but most likely less, then I don't mind tutoring two for the exact same price as one. (But no discount from my standard price for one). Undoubtedly parents have a reason for wanting simultaneous tutoring and I don't question that. I still do everything to customize the experience as much as possible and since this is more difficult... read more

1. Students are asked to give notice of cancellation at least 24 hours in advance of their scheduled time slot. Last-minute cancellations and no-shows will result in a cancellation fee equal to the cost of the missed lesson. If proper notice is not received, the student will be charged and forfeit their lesson. Exceptions can be made in cases of emergency.   2. If proper notice of a cancellation is provided, a make-up lesson can be scheduled. All missed lessons must be made up within 30 days. Make-up lessons are dependent on my schedule and availability and are up to the student to schedule. If missed lessons are not made up within 30 days, the student will be charged for the missed lessons. 3. I expect students to show up consistently for their lessons. Frequent cancellations will be evaluated on an individual basis. Depending on the reasons and circumstances, students may lose their spot due to frequent cancellations. 4.

Hello! If you are reading this, it’s likely because I have sent you the link to this blog before scheduling a lesson with you. I enjoy tutoring students and teaching them what I know about computer science and cybersecurity, but I value the time I spend teaching, just as you value the time you spend learning. As such, I have implemented the following policies to facilitate mutual respect for each other’s time. These policies may be updated over time. If you are a returning student, I generally will not resend you the link to this blog unless I have made changes, as it is implied that you have been previously informed of my existing policies.   COVID-19 Policy: The ongoing pandemic has pushed most learning online, including tutoring. I am still willing to offer in-person tutoring to students in the Washington, DC Metro area on a case by case basis. During any in-person lessons, please wear a mask at all times. Do not schedule an in-person lesson with me if you have tested... read more
