Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to take a placement test?
There is free assessment to determine areas of improvement needed. However, I also consider grade placement because students are assessed throughout the school year with quizzes, tests, and homework assignments. I trust that the school teachers place students in the correct grade levels. I tutor students by grade-level.
Do I have to sign a long-term contract?
No. There are no long-term contracts. Payment is made no later than immediately upon completion of service. Payment may be accepted in the form of cash, credit card, or debt card.
Do I have to purchase tutoring materials?
No. The Common Core curriculum is the foundation of each subject and session. However, I recognize that each person learns differently and at different paces. Therefore, I use various methods to engage and to explain challenging concepts. These methods could include review, rote, videos, worksheets, educational board games, presentations, and more.
