Our tutoring philosophy

Our goal is to provide high quality, affordable, and timely service to keep math interesting and fun for students and affordable for parents. We promote short-duration tutoring, 6 to 8 weeks or two testing cycles, unless students have persistent learning challenges.

High quality: Our tutors have the appropriate degree and experience

Affordable: We work with any budget, if the student is committed.

♦ Timely:  Once students meet session/grade goals, we release them from tutoring

Community GivinG

We’re a very small business, but we give big.

♦ Free tutoring for Timebankers (other than math, statistics or writing)

♦ College Book Grant (Cultural Diversity in Mathematics)

♦ Donations (Crockett Give-Away Day, fundraisers, & Compassion in Action packs)

♦ Green efforts:  We reduce, reuse, recycle, and rethink. We reduce paper use by using online resources, but when we do use paper we reuse paper such as the backside of junk mail. We recycle used paper. We stack our home session back-to-back, and we run errands at the start and end of our sessions. We offer online tutoring.

We chose a basement office because it stays cool in the spring through fall, and surprising warm in the winter, without the use of gas or electric appliances. We use solar fans spring through fall to keep our office comfortably cool. We use natural light for studying.

We reduce our consumption of plastic by bringing tap water in reusable containers when we provide home service.

FAQs

Do I have to pay in advance to make a reservaton? Yes. When you commit your dollars to your education, then we commit our expert services. In order for use to recruit and retain the best tutors, we have to guarantee that we will provide them with students to tutor.

How long is a session? Session duration is one hour or less if the student finishes required and supplementary work

How do Standard” & “Late” cancel differ? A standard cancel is 8 or more hours notice is given. Late cancel is less than 8 hours notice is given.

What’s a “No-show”? When the student fails to show for the tutoring session. We typically call the parent and/or student if the student hasn’t arrived 5-7 minutes into the session. If there is no communication from the parent or student 30 minutes after the expected start of the session, the tutor is permitted to leave the tutoring location. If the student eventually arrives but the tutor is no longer there, partial tutoring time credit will be given.
