POLICY AT TUTORING BY MONICA
Thank you for choosing Tutoring By Monica. I strive to be the best tutor I can be and welcome your input and insights. This process takes time, even when the student is trying. “Trying” means: listening and taking notes in class, attempting homework, and actively participating in our sessions. Please know that I am rooting for your child’s success!
Please see the lists below of expectations & tutoring information.
Sessions are 30 minute minimum.
There is a 24 hour cancellation policy (see below)
Parents are encouraged to stay in the room/nearby the first 1 – 2 sessions. After that, I prefer that it is just the student and I. In my experience, students are more relaxed, focused and perform better when parents are not around. I always communicate with the parents at the end of each session.
Student participation in sessions to include problem-solving, asking and answering questions, etc. is expected.
What to Bring:
Laptop (charged) and/or textbooks
Assignments- Homework, projects, etc.
Writing utensils (pencils, crayons, markers, erasers, etc.)
What is Provided: (Depending on the lesson)
Practice Pages/Sample Documents
Extra practice/Homework can be provided with advanced notice
Aside from cancellations and other urgent/time sensitive messages, I prefer that the bulk of our communication take place through email. Communicating through email allows me to keep better track of our correspondence.
All non-urgent communications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Tutoring rates will be decided and agreed upon before the first session.
Tutoring fees will be invoiced and paid through Wix or PayPal.
At least a 24 hour notice is preferable for cancellations. I understand kids get sick, athletic teams call meetings, last minute travel, etc.
When cancelling, please text me my cell phone.
There is a full hour fee charged for cancellations not made within 3 hours of the session time.
SNOW POLICY: In case of inclement weather (Snow/Ice/Sleet), please TEXT me. If it is snowing and you need to reschedule your (or your child's) appointment, please call or text me at least 3 hours PRIOR to your scheduled appointment if you wish to reschedule. If I do not receive any communication regarding session cancellation, it will be assumed that the session is still being held.
