My standard rate is $40/hour, with a $20 minimum for each session.  Extra charges apply if my travel time to your location is more than 20 minutes.

I do not charge extra for groups, so you can save by putting a group together and sharing the cost.

Payment is due at each tutoring session, unless other arrangements have been made in advance.

Why Tutoring?

It is effective. One-on-one tutoring is ideal for fast learning, because a tutor can adjust to the student’s needs in real time.  This is impossible in a classroom and is difficult in a small group.

Tutoring eliminates the dallying and distractions that often occur when students study alone or with friends.  I aim to be friendly but serious, and most students respond by making a good effort to learn.

It is convenient. I can meet at your home or at another suitable place that is convenient for you.

Although math, chemistry, and test prep are my specialties, I’m often able to help with other subjects, such as English, Spanish, Latin, and physics.  One session with me can cover two or three subjects.

No contract or advance payment is required.  Scheduling is first come, first served, with no minimum number of lessons.


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 / Zelle / CashApp etc.
