Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some frequently asked questions to address some common queries and concerns regarding the location, costs, and logistics of our tutoring services that may be informative to you before contacting us for a tutoring consultation.
Where Do Sessions Take Place?
In my home office. However, I can travel to homes between 8am and 2:30pm. There will be additional charges for travel expenses.
What Covid Precautions Are in Place?
I have taken precautions to protect students from Covid, including installing a large acrylic screen between the student and I. Also, I sanitize anything students have touched. Masks are worn at the client’s discretion. I do not wear a mask so that students can see my mouth. If you would prefer me to wear a mask, I can do so.
How Much Do Sessions Cost?
Sessions start at $60/hour for homework help. Fees increase depending on techniques and materials required.
Do You Offer Free Consultations?
Yes, I offer free 20 minute consultations to take place on Saturdays.
Where Are You Located?
I am located on the Westside, near the Dunbar Southlands in Vancouver.
Do You Teach Small Groups?

Not at the moment as my home office doesn’t have enough space. In the future, I will be looking for a commercial space that will accommodate small groups.
