How to Book A Tutor

Our goal is to make the tutor booking process as streamlined & as straightforward as possible. Once you select a tutor, you can book a session directly with them based on their posted schedule of availability.

Once you request a session, you will receive confirmation that the session is booked. We will reach out to you with your session details to ensure that you are all set for tutoring. Parents, it’s now time to sit back & break in that recliner while your student gets personalized academic help with the tutor that they handpicked from our esteemed team.

With online tutoring options, students can select expert tutors from across the country, & not be limited by the city in which the student happens to reside. This way, you get access to the best of the best tutors, regardless of location.

Second, many students find online tutoring to more conveniently align with their busy extracurricular schedule. We’ve worked with athletes online in the late evenings to accommodate their practices & tutored students online on early weekend mornings before their activities began.

Third, many parents are more comfortable with online tutoring instead of having someone tutor their student inside their family home. Our tutors typically use Zoom or Skype for online sessions, which are safe & easy to use for students of all ages & allow for document sharing, interactive whiteboards, & face-to-face video conferencing. We are happy to help students become familiar with our online platform so that they can make the most of their sessions.

Unlike many other tutoring companies, every tutor on our team has been hand-picked from top universities & programs across the country to ensure that only the highest caliber of tutors are on our team. As we continue to actively search, vet, & add top tutors who will best help our clients’ needs, our focus is on quality, not quantity.

We want parents & students to have as much information at their fingertips as possible when selecting the tutor who will be the best fit for their needs. We do not believe in requiring our clients to prepay for tutoring with us before any details about a tutor is disclosed.

We let our tutors set their own respective rates to ensure that everyone on our team is incentivized to put their best effort into each & every session with our clients. We do not compromise on quality.

At the moment, we do not offer opportunities for you to meet your tutor prior to booking them. However, we always have recommendations for clients looking for a specific subject and grade level. We also have an MPP guarantee: love your first session or it’s free.

The great thing about our platform is that we give you access to all the information regarding our tutors’ experience and background as well as a video that showcases their personality. Our platform allows students and families the autonomy to select a tutor based on their needs.

I’ve Booked My Tutor, What Now?

Once your session has been confirmed, the tutor will reach out to you directly via email or phone to introduce themselves, share the Zoom link for the session, & ask for additional information or materials to help them prepare for the upcoming session.

All you need is access to a device that has Zoom! We recommend using a computer to attend your tutoring sessions to ensure that all the Zoom features such as whiteboard can be utilized. However, any device that has ample access to the internet & Zoom is more than enough.

Cancellation Policy

Please communicate with your tutor regarding any rescheduling.

If you must cancel a booked session with your student’s tutor, you must inform the tutor of this cancellation at least 24 hours before the start time of the session in order to qualify for a full refund.

If you inform the tutor of this cancellation between 12 to 23 hours before the start time of the session, you will qualify for a 50% refund. You are entitled to only 50% of the session’s cost due to the later cancellation notice, and because the tutor committed time to prepare for the booked session.

If you inform the tutor with a cancellation notice within 12 hours of the booked session, fail to show up for your booked session, start a session late, or leave a session early, said session will count as a completed tutoring session. A completed tutoring session does not qualify for any kind of refund and will be invoiced accordingly.
