Cancellations: 1) If the student/guardian gives more than 6 hours notice of cancellation before the start of the lesson, I will not charge you for the lesson. 2) If the student/guardian gives between 1-6 hours notice of cancellation before the lesson, I reserve the right to charge 50% my rate for the lesson length. 3) If the student gives less than 15 minutes-1 hour notice of cancellation, I reserve the right to charge for the entire lesson at the full rate. 4) If the student gives less than 15 minutes notice of cancellation, does not show up at all, or does not show up by 20 minutes after the start of the lesson time, I reserve the right to charge double the full rate for the lesson. 5) If I, the tutor, miss a lesson without more than 1 hours notice of cancellation, the student reserves the right to request the next lesson of equivalent length for no fee.   Tardies: 1) If a student is 15 or more minutes late, I will charge for the entire length... read more

No-Shows/Cancellations: 1) If the student gives between 1 and 3 hours notice of cancellation before the lesson, I reserve the right to charge 50% my rate for the lesson length. 2) If the student gives less than 1 hour notice of cancellation, I reserve the right to charge for the entire lesson at the full rate. 3) If I, the tutor, miss a lesson without more than 1 hours notice of cancellation, the student reserves the right to request the next lesson of equivalent length for no fee. Tardies: 1) If a student is more than 15 minutes late, I will charge for the length of the actual lesson plus a 50% rate for every minute late to the nearest 5 minute mark.  Exceptions will be made for students who provide reasonable advanced notice of tardiness (determined at my discretion). 2) If I, the tutor, am more than 15 minutes late without reasonable prior notice, the student reserves the right to request 50% rate for the length of the lesson.

The following policies are outlined below and apply to all students:   Missed lessons:   1) If given more than 6 hours notice, I will not charge for the lesson.   2) If given less than 6 hours and up until an hour before the lesson, I reserve the right to charge 50% my rate for the lesson length.   3) If given less than an hour, I reserve the right to charge for the entire lesson at the full rate.   Tardiness:    1) If a student is more than 15 minutes late, I will charge for the length of the actual lesson plus a 50% rate for every      minute late to the nearest 5 minute mark.   While I must outline these policies, I am flexible. If a reasonable attempt is made to contact me about missing a lesson or being late, I can't guarantee it, but I usually do not charge.   I am also subject to penalties for tardiness and cancelled lessons.   1) If I am more than 15 minutes... read more

Scheduling A regular schedule is the most successful structure for tutoring, and I offer discounts for sessions scheduled on a regular basis (see Session Fees).  I also tutor individuals who want single sessions, have irregular schedules, need immediate help, or simply are not sure.   I try to be as flexible as possible, and am usually able to stay longer than scheduled if needed. I will not charge for up to 15 minutes extra if it was not previously arranged. I offer online tutoring as well as in-person, so please let me know if you are interested in occasional online sessions to supplement regular.  If you are a regular student, please feel free to contact me outside of sessions for questions or help, at no charge if less than 20 minutes.    Session Fees All of my fees are negotiable! If you have a request please contact me before the session is scheduled.  Individual student rates for standard subjects:... read more

Thank you for the opportunity to help you/your child be successful in school. Helping others develop strong study habits and improve their knowledge and understanding is my passion. I am happy to be of service. I also rely on my tutoring income to meet my responsibilities. For that reason, I believe it is important to have clear policies around scheduling and cancellations. SCHEDULING I schedule students on a first come – first served basis. I have many students who choose to keep a regular standing appointment each week. This arrangement is the most mutually beneficial for all involved. However, I also have some students who prefer to 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 via email at Tami.Ordonez@wyzant.com.  CANCELLATIONS If you must cancel an appointment, please contact me by 2:00 PM the day prior... read more

24 hour minimum notice is required to avoid a cancellation fee. Notice may be provided by call, text, or message/email.   Cancellation fees are as follows:  - If the Client cancels at least 24 hours in advance, no fee will be charged  - If the Client cancels between 6 to 24 hours in advance, 50% of the scheduled session will be charged  - If the Client cancels less than 6 hours in advance, 100% of the scheduled session will be charged   Example: Client has a 2-hour session scheduled to start at 6:00pm. If Client cancels at 10:00am that morning, giving only 8 hours notice, Client will be charged for 1 hour. If Client cancels at 4:00pm, giving only 2 hours notice, Client will be charged for 2 hours.    

Tutoring Rates My rates are 100% negotiable. At my sole discretion, I may elect to modify my standard rates based on factors such as frequency, duration, online vs in-person, group rates, etc. Billing begins at the scheduled session start time (or earlier if the session starts early). This means that time spent waiting for a late student is billed as part of the session duration. For in-person lessons, two-way travel time over a total of 30 minutes is billed as part of the session duration measured by the average travel time from my residence to the meeting location. To mitigate costs of travel, I suggest sessions be longer rather than shorter, or sessions be held online to eliminate traveling costs altogether. All fixed-cost expenses incurred as a cost of providing tutoring are to be reimbursed directly to me by the student, paid for in cash or by check (made payable to Ryoga Independent LLC). Example of such costs include the cost of toll roads, parking fees,... read more

To all prospective/current clients and students: For cancellations made within 24 hours of any scheduled tutoring session, I will assess a cancellation fee of 1/4 of my tutoring rate. I will not charge for the first cancellation or any cancellations due to emergencies. For any student who does not show up to a lesson without notice, my full rate will be charged.

To all prospective/current clients and students: Please Read This!   * For cancellations made within 24 hours of any scheduled tutoring session, I will assess a cancellation fee of half my tutoring rate.

   Before I begin this blog, I want to explain the reason for the periodic updates to my guidelines. Although my guidelines have remained largely the same, I have adjusted them slightly during my years of tutoring to best suit the demographics in which I have worked. This blog reflects such an adjustment. Now, the blog:    Although I am not new to tutoring, a year ago, I was new to online tutoring through Wyzant. At that time, I made a set of guidelines for my students that I have since realized can be confusing. Therefore, I am making a blog that contains, in simpler formatting, the rules for tutoring with me. I will sometimes repeat information or use less-than-professional language throughout this blog in order to increase the chances of an accurate translation for students who use Google Translate to understand my blogs. Information on my philosophy and approach will be available in separate blogs, God willing.                                   ... read more

                        Thank you for choosing me to be your child’s tutor.  I strive to be the best tutor I can be and welcome your input and insights. This process takes time, even when the student is trying. “Trying” means: listening and taking notes in class, attempting homework, and actively participating in our sessions. Please know that I am rooting for your child’s success!     Please see the lists below of expectations and tutoring information.    Session Info: Sessions are 1 hour minimum.  Longer sessions can be accommodated at the request of the parents. 24 hour cancellation policy (see below) Parents are encouraged to stay the first 1 – 2 times. After that, I prefer that it is just the student and I.  In my experience, students are more relaxed, focused and perform better... read more

General - All sessions are billed in 5-minute increments. - All sessions will be charged beginning at the scheduled start time, unless I am late, in which case, the session time will begin when I arrive and charges will be assessed accordingly. - If a session goes past the scheduled end time, you will be charged until the session is complete, in 5 minute increments. If you need a session to end “on time,” simply let me know. - If I choose to end a session early, for example, because we covered all the necessary material--or any similar event--then I will charge you for only the actual duration of the session, in 5-minute increments. - If you choose to end a session early, for any reason, you will be charged for the full scheduled session. - Unless otherwise agreed, all sessions will be schedule for 2 hours. For more explanation, see my TutorFAQs. - Sometimes, it is necessary for me to have my 5-year-old daughter with me when I tutor. She is very well-behaved... read more

My current cancellation policy: You must call if canceling within 24 hours of the scheduled start time, if I can’t reschedule, a full hr. will be charged. A  full hour will be charged for no shows.   However due to the snow today, the 24 hour rule will NOT be enforced for Snow/Ice/Sleet. If it is snowing and you need to reschedule your (or your child's) appointment, please call or text me at least 3 hours before your scheduled appointment if you wish to reschedule. I will contact you if I need to cancel or reschedule. If I do NOT hear from you, I will assume that we are holding our session at our scheduled time.

I want to make it very clear of my cancellation policy to potential students as well as other tutors as I think it is important that all sides are clear on this topic. I take my tutoring of you and/or your children very seriously. Tutoring is like any other appointment and is not something that you do when you feel like it. Your education is important to me as well as it should be to you as well! Keeping to a tutoring schedule is crucial, and as such, it is also considerate to let me know if you want to cancel a session ahead of time. If you have an emergency, then I completely understand. If you decide that you have something else to do or planned your day poorly, then you will be charged accordingly. I have a very full schedule. Rescheduling should only be done in an emergency and if my schedule permits it. Cancellation Policy 24+ hours Notice of Cancellation: No fee 6-24 hours Notice of Cancellation: $25/hour 1-6 hours Notice of Cancellation:... read more

Due to winter weather and my use of the bus system, my tutoring guidelines have changed. Please review the new guidelines below, and let me know if you have any questions. Changes from the old guidelines are typed in bold print. As a tutor, you will find me friendly, flexible, and committed to your success. I look forward to finding lesson times, study methods, and learning styles that work for your specific needs. I am happy to let you direct your own learning process as much as you want. However, guidelines are necessary in any business relationship so that everyone is on the same page. Below are the guidelines for adults who are studying with me. This document tells you what you can expect from me and what I expect from you. By beginning tutoring with me, you are agreeing to these terms. I am so excited to work with you! :) Adult Tutoring Guidelines God willing, you can expect me to: 1) Be respectful and positive in the learning process 2) Be punctual... read more

Unlike most people, tutoring is my full time job AND I love it. It's a rare combination to find something you like to spend hours a day doing and get paid at the same time. Therefore, I take my tutoring of you or your children very seriously. Tutoring is like any other appointment. Tutoring is not something that you do "when you feel like it." Your education is important to me and I hope it would be important to you too :)   Creating a tutoring schedule is a commitment. Sticking to this commitment is crucial. It is also considerate to let me know if you want to cancel a session....ahead of time. If you have an emergency, then I completely understand. If you decide that you have something else to do or planned your day poorly, then you will be charged accordingly.    I have a very full schedule. Rescheduling should only be done in an emergency and if my schedule permits it.    Cancellation Policy 48+ hours Notice of... read more
