Policies

Please acquaint yourself with my professional policies, which apply to all of my tutoring and advising work. These policies are designed to maximize benefit to all of my students.

Cancellation Policy

All lessons that are cancelled less than 24 hours before its starting time are subject to a cancellation fee equal to the full cost of the scheduled lesson. While these lessons may be rescheduled upon request, such rescheduling is subject to my availability and discretion. In addition, any such rescheduled lesson must occur within the same Monday-Sunday calendar week or else the cancellation fee still applies. Furthermore, if you ask to shorten a lesson on the same day as the lesson, the full cost of the originally scheduled lesson still applies.

Booking Policy

I operate on a first-come first-served basis and am usually operating at or near capacity, so I recommend booking with me as early as possible. Generally in order to reserve a particular time on a regular basis, you must be meeting with me weekly. For less frequent meetings, I typically can only arrange specific lessons within the same calendar month or, during peak seasons, within the next two weeks. In order to reserve a particular time far in advance, I may require a deposit, subject to my discretion.

Health & Safety Policy

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, I strongly encourage families to take advantage of online lessons, which have proven to be just as effective (and sometimes even more so) for most students. However, for students who choose to meet with me in-person, I do require that all eligible members of their families be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and require that all students wear a face mask over their noses and mouths for the entire lesson. 

Good Faith Policy

As I strive to be a model of transparency and honesty in all of my dealings with students and parents, I also expect all of my clients to operate in good faith. Please be honest with me at all times and maintain strong ethical, professional, and personal standards.
