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 PayPal, Venmo, credit card (all major cards accepted), and 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, with the option to save up to 25%. Pre-paid packages are not refundable, but any remaining tutoring / consulting / essay editing hours may be gifted to a relative or friend.
Score guarantees, need-based scholarships, and additional discounts are available on a limited, case-by-case basis. Please contact me directly to hear more.

|Package||Pay as you go||5 hours||10 hours||15 hours||20 hours||25 hours|
Group Courses and Discounts
Another way to save is to work in a group of 2 or more students, because this lowers the cost for each member of the group. 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
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 charged for that time.
