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.

    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, even if that means recommending another program or individual.

    All lessons are conducted remotely by Skype, FaceTime, Google Meetings, Zoom, phone, or the chat software of your choice.  Having tutored hundreds of students in test preparation via Skype and phone since the early 2000s, I am uniquely qualified to tutor you or your student online.

    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 charged for that time.
