How does online tutoring work?

I use Zoom for our sessions, which allows us to hear and see each other. Zoom will be our virtual classroom where we can write on a whiteboard, upload images or worksheets, share tools, or watch demos/simulations and video clips as needed.

We will begin with a free consultation. This allows us to get to know each other and determine if we are a good fit.

We will use the time in the free consultation to develop a plan and determine the best services to help you meet your goals.

It’s easy and very interactive!

What equipment do I need?

You will need a high-speed internet connection.

A laptop, tablet, desktop - I do not recommend using a smartphone or device smaller than a Chromebook or iPad.

Headphones to reduce any background noise if needed.

A mouse or stylus pen for writing on the whiteboard if you do not have a touchscreen.

 

A Zoom account (the free version is more than enough).

A PayPal account, this is also free.

What subjects do you tutor?

 High school

How does payment work?

Sessions are $45 per hour. Reduced rates for multiple scheduled sessions and groups.

 

Sessions are paid through PayPal. You will need a credit card and an account with PayPal.

 

Regularly recurring sessions are prepaid by the month.

 

Individual sessions are paid prior to the start of the session.

What happens if I cancel or miss a session?

Email me as soon as you know that you will need to miss or move a session, preferably a week ahead of time but at minimum 24 hours prior to the start of the session for a full refund.

 

Any sessions missed with less than a 24-hour notice will be charged for the entire session.

 

Any sessions in which the student is late to where half of the session is missed or 30 minutes, whichever is the least amount of time, will be charged the full rate of the original session.

While this may sound harsh, this is my business and main source of income. Any unforeseen cancellations will impact that day’s schedule.

Do you offer at home or in-person tutoring?

No, at this time I only offer online tutoring and classes.
