Policies

I will tutor in the student’s home or at a suitable public place such as a library.

I will be on time for tutoring if at all possible, and the same is expected of the student.  If you will be more than five minutes late, please call or text me if you are on your way.  I will do the same.

If I must cancel your lesson, which almost never happens, I will let you know as soon as possible, and there will be no charge.

No contract or advance payment is required.  Scheduling is by appointment, with no minimum number of lessons.

To promote fairness and flexibility in scheduling, changes and cancellations are treated as follows:
(1) There is a $20 fee for cancellations made less than 48 hours in advance.
(2) There is a $30 fee for no-shows.
(3) I will try to accommodate requests to change the time of an appointment, for no extra charge.  Feel free to ask.
(4) A change in the date of a scheduled appointment is regarded as a cancellation and a new appointment.

I expect students to study independently on a regular basis.  I may decide to stop working with students who do not put in enough time and effort to be successful.

Students should be dressed modestly.

Payment is due at each tutoring session, unless a different arrangement is agreed upon in advance.  I accept cash, personal checks, and Paypal.
