FAQ

Which grades do you tutor?

I primarily tutor students in grades 2 – 5.

What days and times are you available to tutor?

I’m available for tutoring Monday through Thursday, after school and in the evenings. Given our current circumstances, I am able to do some daytime tutoring as well. Please email me to check availability.

Given the COVID-19 pandemic, how do you meet with students?

Currently I work with students via Zoom. Tutoring online is surprisingly versatile. I will sometimes send materials for you to print out ahead of time or drop materials off if you’re local. Mostly I use apps and programs online and share my screen so that the student and I can both see the material together. Also, digital white boards are really cool!

My child has an IEP. Can you still support him or her?

Absolutely! I am a special education teacher, so I know all about IEP plans and am happy to help support your child to reach their IEP goals.

Now that you’re working with my child, how do I pay you?

You can pay me via Venmo, PayPal, or good old-fashioned check. Payment is expected at the end of the tutoring session. I know it’s easy to forget to pay when using an app, so if we arrive at the end of the week and I haven’t yet received payment, I will send a gentle reminder.

What is your cancellation policy?

I try to be very flexible with scheduling, and I understand that things sometimes happen unexpectedly. I prefer to reschedule rather than cancel a tutoring session, but should you need to cancel, I require 24 hours’ notice. If for some reason I am unable to tutor, I would prefer to reschedule, but I understand that schedules are tricky.

I’d like to find out more. How can I do that?

The best way to reach me is via email. Please drop me a note about what you’re looking for, and include your phone number. I’ll return your email as soon as possible.
