Read reviews that mention:
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Pricing is ordinarily $39/hour however lower for longer term commitments (e.g. 2x per week, for 4 consecutive weeks). More options available. Current students will get their rates honored without increases.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I break it down as follows: 1. Baseline assessment (establish status quo) 2. What are your goals / desired outcome? 3. Any prior experience with foreign languages? 4. Creation and presentation of the syllabus for approval 5. Defining logistics and schedule - discounts available for longterm engagements 6. Periodic testing to gauge progress 7. Grammar and spelling 8. Vocabulary tests 9. Reaching defined goal(s) I'm further following the CEFR as guideline (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages)
