Hourly Rates & Discount Packages

I stand by my students' results, so I never require you to pay for more than one lesson at a time. If, after the first lesson, you decide to purchase a discount package of hours, then I will be happy to put the cost of the first lesson toward the total cost of the package itself. 

All lessons (30, 60, or 90 minutes in duration) must be pre-paid.  I accept payment by Visa, Mastercard, PayPal & personal check.

I also offer significant discounts for up-front packages.  For every 5 hours that you purchase in advance, you will receive 5% off the total cost of tutoring, all the way up to 25 hours at a 25% discount.  If you need to buy any additional hours after a discount package, then your original (largest) discount will continue to apply in perpetuity.  Pre-paid packages are not refundable.

Score guarantees, need-based scholarships and additional discounts are available on a limited basis. Contact me directly for more details.

Group Courses and Discounts

Another way to save money is to work in a group of 2 or more students, because this lowers the cost for each member of the group.  (Please call my office at 866-584-TUTOR to arrange payment for group courses.)  Here are my discounts per student:

Group Size 2 3 4 5 6 or more  
Discount Per Student 50% 60% 70% 75% 80%

    Initial 15-minute phone consultation: FREE

    Feel free to contact me anytime to tell me more about you or your student.  In addition, please remember that your initial 15-minute phone consultation with me is always free of charge.  Once I know more about your needs, I will work to find the test-prep, tutoring and/or college consulting solution that is right for you.

    I look forward to hearing from you.
