Cancellation Policy

Thank you for the opportunity to help you or your child achieve learning goals in English and writing. Helping others develop enthusiasm for learning as well as content-based understanding is my motivation. I am glad to be of service. I also rely on tutoring income to help meet my responsibilities. For that reason, I believe it is important to have policies around scheduling and cancellations.


I schedule students on a first-come, first-served basis, and, normally, I have students who choose to keep a regular appointment or two each week. However, I also have some students who schedule as needed. Those students need to be flexible as my availability may shift from week to week. All appointments are a minimum of one hour in length. To schedule an appointment please contact me at 


If you must cancel an appointment, please contact me at least six hours prior to your scheduled lesson. Appointments cancelled after that time will be charged the full regular fee as if the lesson happened, unless the lesson can be rescheduled the same week. No show/no notice will also be charged the full fee as if the lesson had happened.
