Where We Are & Where We Go
Our dedication to customer service is evident: we can come to you! Forget driving in rush hour or picking your child up after work; in most situations, we can simplify your life with our “one-stop shop” philosophy and meet your students at your home, his/her school, an office, library or coffee shop. Final driving decisions are up to tutors, but generally, if you are within a 15-mile radius of our Silver Spring office, we can make it work. If not, there are still many other options: completing sessions via Skype/FaceTime online applications (great for our international students, remotely-located students or poor weather days), or meeting at a mutually determined midpoint location.
We also offer tutoring and consulting in our home office in Silver Spring, Maryland, as some students prefer to remove the distractions of home, school and public places and use our facility.
With any questions regarding specific locations we travel to, please don’t hesitate to email us at email@example.com.
Please contact us directly for information on pricing. We often run promotions at certain times of the year, and also have special group rates and referral bonuses.
Our prices are firmly mid-range for the Washington, D.C., area. You will find companies that run the gamut, and we respect the need for budget to come into play when making plans. However, the old axiom, “You Get What You Pay For,” is quite true in the college admissions process. This is an investment into the future, one that can yield numerous acceptance letters, scholarship offers and internship opportunities. Additionally, the skills we teach are relevant and necessary for success in college and the job market. We urge clients to keep this in mind when factoring in budgetary concerns.
We are also unique in our flexible payment schedule: we let clients pay in installments, and even on a per-session basis, if necessary. The big factory-type companies don’t allow that- they want to sell you a package of lessons (which we also do not do), regardless of your student’s needs, and they want payment upfront.
Our company focuses on the individual, personalized student more than any other preparatory company. Our prices reflect not just the hourly tutoring rate, but the large amount of time we spend out-of-session doing the following:
- driving to and from sessions
- vehicle maintenance from all of our driving
- emailing and calling parents and students with updates
- lesson planning and prep work
- creating new materials on a student-by-student basis
- test grading and analysis
- running the business side of things so the tutoring side can run smoothly
With our tutors, we don’t just think about your student during our scheduled 1.5 to 2 hours a week. We are constantly working to ensure they are having the most enjoyable, efficient and results-driven experience they can.
Three Ways To Save
There are, in fact, three major ways to save money
Small group tutoring
If your student and up to three friends would like to be tutored together for the same test, each student after the first is half price. Most parents then just add it all up and split it equally.
If you are happy with our services and refer us to friends who sign up, you can earn up to five free hours of tutoring! (A $600 value!)
If your school or organization would like to put together a class (at least 8 students), we can work with you on pricing.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on our services and pricing.
