Common Tutoring Queries
Do you have a specific tutoring qualification?
I have over 10 years of experience teaching community college-level and college-level chemistry, including general, organic, and biochemistry for non-science majors, science majors, pre-nursing programs and pre-professional programs. Years of tutoring students during my office hours when students ask for help or want more clarity have been the most enjoyable portion of my teaching experience, because I witness students’ transformation from confusion and often times anxiety and/or frustration to clarity and confidence.
How do you charge for your tutoring services?
My private tutoring sessions are a fixed rate of $80/hour and my small group tutoring sessions (with a maximum of 3 students, in the same chemistry or math course, preferably) have a fixed rate of $100/hour. If you can coordinate with another parent or fellow student to seek tutoring together, you will save some green. I also offer one initial tutoring session at half-price as an introductory, one-time offer. I accept payment through Venmo, PayPal, personal check or cash (and perhaps credit cards down the road, should the need arise).
Where do you hold your tutoring sessions?
My tutoring sessions (whether private or small group) can be held either online, via Zoom, or in person with the appropriate pandemic safety precautions. In-person tutoring sessions can be arranged to be held in the students' home or an agreed upon location, such as the public library or in a study area at a school.chool study area.
Which chemistry and math subjects do you tutor?
I tutor any algebra and chemistry topics that you may need help with for your class or exam preparation. When you contact me for an initial appointment, I will collect information from you on which subjects you are being studied and/or where struggling points may be occurring. Based in our introductory discussion, I will develop a personalized tutoring support plan for the initial session.
What is your cancellation policy?
There will be a $20 cancellation fee for private tutor sessions and a $30 cancellation fee for small group tutor sessions if you are unable to make your tutoring appointment without giving at least 24 hours’ notice.
