Set up a free consultation

Working one-on-one with a tutor is all about customization. We strive to meet each student’s needs, and we like to know as much as possible about the student’s academic background, the family’s needs, and goals for the program of study.

A 30-minute in-office consultation is scheduled for each new family. At least one parent(s) or other interested party should attend. (Sometimes a grandparent, a relative, or a family friend arranges the student’s classes; these parties’ input is welcome.) The student should also attend. We’ll talk about test prep, college admissions, scheduling and the timeline, and the student’s academic background.
