Thanks for choosing me to be your tutor! I take tutoring very seriously, and you should as well. Part of that means sticking to a defined schedule in order to ensure success! I take a lot of time to prepare lessons and travel to convenient locations all across the NYC and Long Island area, so it is important to be mindful of these efforts put towards your educational success.   Please note the following policy:   Billing: Paid per hour session ($85/hour) Same rate applies for time spent beyond the scheduled session   Cancellation Policy: 24+ hours Notice of Cancellation: No fee Between 24 to 12 hours Notice of Cancellation: Quarter the normal rate per hour scheduled Between 12 to 6 hours Notice of Cancellation: Half the normal rate per hour scheduled Less than 6 hours Notice of Cancellation: Full rate per hour scheduled No notice: Full rate plus $10 per hour scheduled   I understand... read more

   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 4-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

As time is valuable to both me and my students, I have a 24 hour cancellation policy. If I am not notified of a cancellation 24 hours prior to the session, I will charge the full amount of the session. If you contact me prior to this window, thank you for your courtesy!

Cancellation Policy   I allow students to cancel lessons up to 8 hours in advance, with no additional charge. Cancellations between 2-8 hours in advance will be a small $5 fee. Cancellations between 15 minutes and 2 hours before the lesson will be a $10 fee. Cancellations any later than 15 minutes than the scheduled start time of the lesson will result in a full lesson charge.   Late Policy   The lesson will be charged from the agreed start time of the lesson, even if the student is late. If the tutor is late, the lesson will not be charged until tutoring begins. (However, it is very very unusual that I am ever late!)   Travel Radius   To keep my tutoring prices down, I have chosen to tutor within a four mile travel radius, which covers a good portion of the Valencia. Some areas of Newhall and Saugus are also possible. Canyon Country is out of my radius, however many students choose to meet in a location within my... read more
