I respect both your time and mine. As such, the following cancellation policy will go into effect on 10/14/20. If you need to cancel: If you cancel at least 12 hours before your scheduled lesson, there will be no charge and we can reschedule for a better time. If you cancel within 4-12 hours before your scheduled lesson, there will be a cancellation fee of 50% of the lesson price. If you cancel less than 4 hours before your scheduled lesson, there will be a cancellation fee of 75% of the lesson price. My minimum lesson time is 1 hour. If you arrive late to a lesson, need to leave early, or don’t have enough material for an hour, I will still charge for the entire hour. If you do not show up within 15 minutes of the lesson start time, I reserve the right to consider it a ‘no-show’ and charge a cancellation fee of 100% of the lesson price. If you are canceling because of an emergency or similar, I will take that into consideration when assessing a... read more

As a high school teacher of over 35 years and a college adjunct for more than 10 years, it's quite obvious that I love teaching and tutoring! Five outside the box tips that help make my tutoring lessons fun: 1.  get to know my student by finding out music he/she likes, food likes, social media favorites, anything that helps us connect 2.  create a fun, comfortable environment/setting that is productive and enjoyable 3.  insert games/hands-on activities into tutoring sessions 4.  bring contagious, positive energy to tutoring sessions  5.  learn something from my student to help them gain confidence and self-esteem (usually tech related)

For in-person lessons: Students must provide notice to cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the scheduled lesson to avoid cancellation fees. Lessons cancelled between 24 and 12 hours before a scheduled lesson are subject to a 25% cancellation fee.

No-shows are subject to a 100% cancellation fee. For online lessons: Students must provide a notice to cancel at least 6 hours in advance of the scheduled lesson to avoid cancellation fees.

Dear students, I trust that you are all safe under this circumstances. Tutorship is an art and a science, especially now. I would add it could be used not only as a study aid but also as an emotional tool for stress reduction. What I talking about is when we have the good match of tutor-student then the student should relax. Usually this happens during the first few sessions. My advantage is that I am both a tutor and an instructor who taught on line and in-person in a traditional classroom setting as well as virtually and hybrid across multi-campus, multi-city classrooms. Since my specialty comprises of quantitative courses coupled with research level papers editing and proofreading, I can comfortably say, that most students hindrances stem from two things: 1. A mismatch between the classroom professor’s style and lack of time to customize her or his style to suit individual students. 2. Stress caused by not explaining how to study or solve problems as... read more

I have PowerPoints of my own that I use through the Wyzant Screenshare application to lecture the student on the chapter they are working through.  I can also use this later to discuss the rationale for the correct answers to the tests and quizzes I send them through Wyzant email.   This truly does make tutoring easier on me and I do not have to pay a monthly fee for the use of similar products on different platforms.

Hello everyone. I love tutoring and helping others achieve higher levels of knowledge! With that being said, I value the time I spend teaching and the time you spend learning. In order to respect each of our times and schedules, I implemented the following cancellation, no-show and late policies:   Tutees: Cancellation Policy: If you're unable to attend our scheduled tutoring session, please let me know through Wyzant's messaging system at least 12 hours prior to the start of the scheduled lesson. If you notify me 12 hours or more in advance, you will not be charged for the lesson and we can schedule a time that's more convenient for you. If you decide to cancel the lesson between 3-11 hours before the scheduled lesson, 50% of the price of the lesson will be charged. If I'm notified two hours or less before the lesson, 100% of the price of the lesson will be charged. No Show Policy: If you're 15 minutes late to a lesson and didn't notify me that you'd... read more

I value my time spent teaching and your time spent learning. In order to facilitate the scheduling of lessons, I use the following cancellation and no-show policies:   1. If you are unable to attend a scheduled online session, please send me a message through the Wyzant Messaging system 12 hours or more before start time of scheduled lesson. If done so, no charges will be applied to your account. If a student asks for a cancellation/rescheduling of lesson less than 12 hours in advance of the scheduled lesson, a cancellation fee will be assessed. 2. No Show: If you are more than 15 minutes late to a session and did not communicate to me that you are going to be late before the session began, I will consider it as a "no show" and charge the full cost of the session.  3. If you are late to any session, but it is not considered a no-show as per my policy, we can continue the session. However, you will be charged the full amount, and the time... read more
