What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I like to talk to the student (and parents, if applicable) about previous scores and goals. I find we typically need 3-4 sessions per subject area (or 6 total for the ACTs) to have a decent base of preparation.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
BA in English literature and philosophy from Pitt. I've also been an SAT tutor for over 10 years, first with Kaplan and then on my own.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
$90/ 2-hour session
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
FInd someone with experience, and if you can, talk to several tutors until you find one whose personality and teaching style you click with.
