Read reviews that mention:
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
For tutoring and test-prep I charge $80/hr for in-person sessions and $60/hr for online sessions. For college application essay counseling I charge $120/hr for in-person sessions and $100/hr for online sessions.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
When it comes to tutoring, we dive right into the student's work and I quickly assess what understanding or skills the student is lacking. From there, I break down concepts and teach new information in a manner tailored to the student's personality and learning style. For college application essay counseling, the student and I brainstorm events from the student's life to outline an anecdotal story that demonstrates the student's best characteristics. Then we edit the language to make sure it is clear and powerful and transports the reader into the experience of the student.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
In regard to tutoring, I have been tutoring math and writing since I was in high school. I graduated with a liberal arts degree with a focus on neuroscience and writing. I worked for one year with Tahoe Tutoring, a tutoring company in Incline Village, Nevada, before starting my own independent business. I have been enjoying tutoring and essay counseling independently ever since, now 4 years!
