Hourly Rates & Discount Packages

I stand by my students' results, and after 20 years in business, I'm highly confident in my expertise.  Thus, I am happy to earn your trust: you are never required 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 gladly put the cost of the initial lesson toward the total price of the discount package.

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.  Pre-paid packages are not refundable, but any remaining tutoring hours may be used by a younger sibling or relative.
 

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%  

 

30-minute Tutoring or Coaching Session (in-person or via Skype) - $250

  • Pay Now

    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.

    UPDATE, JULY 2020:  For GRE and GMAT tutoring only, I now offer the services of a small team of verified 99% scoring tutors, at significantly lower rates than mine.  Please call or email for more details.

    Due to the coronavirus pandemic, all lessons are now conducted 100% online by Skype, FaceTime, Google Meetings, Zoom, phone, or the online chat software of your choice.  Having tutored students in test preparation via Skype and phone since the early 2000s, I am uniquely qualified for the transition to 100% remote learning.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

Cancellation Policy
: Any lesson may be canceled, so long as the student/parent provides at least 24 hours notice (phone, text or email is acceptable). If the student/parent does not cancel the lesson within 24 hours, and this happens more than once, then the client will be billed for a 30-minute lesson.
