Scheduling Private Tutoring:

  • Please complete the Tutoring Registration Form to begin the process of scheduling tutoring.
  • Once your form is received, we may reach out to you with questions to facilitate scheduling.
    • We strive to schedule tutoring as quickly as possible; we appreciate your patience as we manage numerous factors including tutor and student availability.
    • The more daily availability you provide, the more likely we will be able to (quickly) meet your scheduling parameters.
  • Please note:
    • We strive to keep each student with the same tutor throughout their prep.
    • All scheduling occurs on weekdays during regular business hours (9:00am-5:00pm); tutoring itself is scheduled until 9pm on weekdays and all day on weekends.
    • Scheduling and rescheduling requests received on a Friday will generally be addressed the following Monday.
  • *After we receive your tutoring registration form and your schedule is in process or already confirmed:
    • All requests to schedule, reschedule or cancel tutoring appointments MUST be provided in writing via an email to our office.
      • We cannot schedule tutoring appointments over the phone.
      • Your tutor cannot cancel, reschedule or schedule an appointment during your tutoring appointment!
        • Tutors are focused on teaching YOU during tutoring sessions and they are unable to change your tutoring schedule.
        • Even if you inform your tutor of your need to cancel or change a future appointment, please also send an email about it to our office!
        • Only upon your receipt of an email confirming a cancellation or other type of scheduling request, will you know that your appointment has been changed on our calendar.
          • Payment will still be expected for any appointment for which we have no written/email record of your request to cancel.

Private Tutoring Payment Policies:

  • Payment of the tutoring registration fee and the first appointment fee is due upon confirmation of the tutoring schedule.
  • If not paid previously, the tutoring registration fee and the first session fee are expected at or before the first appointment – before the tutoring may begin.
  • All tutoring session fees are due up front – at or before each appointment, unless other arrangements have been confirmed by our office.  You may pay for each appointment “as you go” or pay in advance for as many appointments as you’d like.
    • If payments are not received each week or otherwise in a timely manner, and prior arrangements have not been made, we reserve the right to refuse service or to request that a student call a parent/guardian to make the payment prior to beginning the tutoring session.
  • Invoices can be emailed to you upon request.  If you require an invoice to provide payment, please let us know in advance and we will provide one to you as soon as possible.
    • Please note that information about our fees are contained in the tutoring confirmation email sent after your tutoring schedule was approved and confirmed.
      • If tutoring is occurring, and an invoice has not been sent, payment is still expected at or before each appointment.

Private Tutoring Cancellation Policy

We understand that many of our clients have very busy schedules and that situations arise that would require rescheduling or cancelling an appointment.  Please remember that your tutor’s time has been reserved for you and he/she will be expecting you at your scheduled and confirmed time.  We kindly request that you provide us with 48 hours notice to avoid charges.  We do not keep a waitlist for appointments, but if we have another student who is able to take your appointment time, you will not be charged for the same hour.  Unless we are able to schedule someone else in your session time, notice of less than 48 hours will generally incur charges up to the full amount of the fee for the initially scheduled appointment. Cancellations made on the same day as the appointment, and those considered to be a ‘No Show’ with no call to cancel, will be charged in full.

  • Please note that tutoring is scheduled on regular business days – 9am – 5pm on Mondays through Fridays.  Our evening and weekend staff are busy either tutoring, teaching classes, counseling, proctoring diagnostic and practice tests (weekends only) or performing other administrative tasks. Therefore, please keep track of your appointment schedule and make sure to communicate rescheduling requests as soon as you can in order to accommodate these correlating aspects of our cancellation policy:
    • Cancellations made after regular business hours may not be seen until the next morning (or the next Monday if cancelling on a Friday) and are considered to be received on the next regular business day.
    • If cancelling or rescheduling weekend appointments, please inform us 48 hours before the weekend so we can try to fill the gap in your tutor’s schedule.
    • For appointments on Mondays, please inform us of your need to cancel during business hours on the Friday before the weekend.

Thank you for your understanding of our need to keep you AND our tutors appropriately scheduled!

Group Course Payment Policies:

  • A minimum deposit payment of $125 is required to hold your place in a course.
  • Full payment for all group courses is due at or before the first course lesson. If you would like to pay the course fee in installments, let us know. We’re happy to help you arrange a payment plan. Please contact us for details.
  • Course Refund Policy: The $125 deposit and any other course payments are fully refundable up until one week before the course begins. Within one week of the course start day, all payments EXCEPT for the deposit will be refunded upon request. The $125 course deposit is not refundable within one week of the course start date.  After the first class session, a prorated refund amount may be provided upon request. No refunds will be available after the second class lesson.

Group Course Repeat Policy:

If you take an ACT or SAT prep course with us and don’t get the score you want, we offer you the opportunity of a one-time repeat of our next scheduled course – beginning after your prior scores have been released online – for a fee of $125: 

  • If you take a condensed course (offered at a reduced price), and want to retake a full course, you will be asked to pay the difference in course fees, plus the Repeat Fee.
  • The repeat option includes the course lessons, practice tests and test reviews*.
    • The repeat option does not include access to Study Hall sessions; nor is another prep book provided;  we do not sell books, so if another prep book is needed to repeat the course, please purchase one elsewhere before class begins (contact us for advice regarding the least expensive purchase options).
    • Students repeating a course may wish to schedule different practice tests if the students in the second course will be taking the same practice tests provided in the original course.
      • *If different practice tests are taken, you may want to schedule private tutoring to review them as they cannot be reviewed in the group course lesson; hourly tutoring fees are based on current tutoring rates.
