Frequently Asked Questions
What precautions are being taken during the pandemic?
A mask covering the nose and mouth must be worn during the entire session. Hand sanitizer is available for your child to use. I sanitize my hands and the workspace after each student. Shared objects are kept to a minimum.
Where and when does tutoring take place?
Tutoring and consultations currently take place at Panera Bread (13025 San Pedro) on weekdays by appointment only.
Services at Brookhollow Library (530 Heimer) are likely to resume once the library reopens and gathering is allowed.
Virtual tutoring is offered, but availability is limited.
Can you tutor at my house?
To lessen distractions, tutoring is always held in a public place. Tutoring in one place keeps scheduling simple and allows me to see more students by eliminating travel time.
What do I do during tutoring? Do I have to stay in the building?
Parents should sit at another table during sessions (Children do better when the parent isn’t hovering). If your child is young, I recommend staying inside for the first couple sessions until your child is comfortable being there without you. Once your child is comfortable, feel free to run a quick errand. Please be on time to pick up your child as I am unable to supervise him once his session is complete.
How often should my child attend tutoring?
Once a week per subject is recommended. Twice a week may be recommended for students who are struggling significantly.
How are sessions scheduled?
Sessions are scheduled using an online portal. Once you select the appropriate service, available dates and times will be shown. A free consultation is required before sessions.
Does my child have to attend tutoring the same day and time each week?
Sessions are scheduled as separate events (not recurring) in the online portal. This gives you the ability to choose the dates and times best for you. With enough notice, scheduling the same day and time each week is usually possible.
Is there a minimum number of sessions required?
While there is no minimum number of sessions required, overcoming academic challenges takes time. Tutoring is a commitment and an investment in your child’s education.
How do I pay for the sessions? When is payment due?
Once you have scheduled sessions you will receive an invoice via email. Payment is due in advance.
