When/Where does tutoring take place?

Tutoring takes place at the student’s home. Tutors and families discuss scheduling directly, so as to afford flexibility to both parties.

How much does it cost?

Grades K-8: $50 per hour

Grades 9-12: $60 per hour

ACT and SAT Prep: $65 per hour

No, not typically. We are an in-person tutoring service. Should a scheduling issue arise between a family and their long-term tutor, both parties may agree to a zoom meeting to make up a missed session.
