Booking Tutoring Sessions

Parents/guardians/families should schedule an initial call before booking tutoring sessions to ensure a good fit. If you are booking tutoring sessions for the summer months, please be aware that there is a 4-session minimum to reserve your desired time slot(s).

Tutoring sessions are 1, 1.5, or 2 hours and take place at a public venue (most often Falmouth Public Library).

Cancellation of Tutoring Sessions

We do not permit last-minute cancellations of tutoring sessions. Parents/guardians/families may cancel up to 24 hours prior to the scheduled tutoring session. If the session is cancelled less than 24 hours before the session, the family will be charged for that session in full. We ask that you respect our tutors’ time and do not cancel last minute. If there is a family emergency or sudden unforeseen illness, the cancellation may be excused.

Student Expectations

To ensure that students get the most out of their tutoring sessions, they should have all their study materials such as summer reading materials, class notes, homework, textbook, pens/pencils, calculator, laptop, etc. ready for the start of the session. Students may not have a friend present for tutoring sessions unless prior consent was given. Tutoring sessions with 2 students follow the “buy 1, get 1 half off” pricing model.

Tutor Expectations

Your tutor will arrive with necessary materials including a laptop, calculator, a white board and markers, or scratch paper and pens/pencils. Tutors will clarify concepts, help students overcome their areas of difficulty (whether conceptual or organizational), in addition to helping develop self-confidence in academic skills.
