It’s great to see you again.

Please claim times aggressively; you can always cancel later if we exceed expectations.

Will this be your first full session?

Your first paid session is special. Together, we craft the plan for your student’s success. Intake sessions currently cost $400, due to a seasonal 50% scholarship.

(Please also read the preparation instructions under this calendar.)

“Wait, am I in the right place here?”

Yes, if you’ve already had a free 20-minute video chat (initial consultation) with Wes, but you haven’t yet had a paid session of any kind.

Our promises to each other

You will prepare carefully for each of our meetings, including this first one. 

Through our work together, you will reach your goals and get important lifelong skills along the way.

Who attends this intake session?

The student, of course. Parents should please also attend if the student has not yet graduated from high school.

Location

After scheduling your first session, above, you’ll get a confirmation email containing your video conference instructions.

Homework

Before this first session, we’d like you to order some books and do some homework. For the specifics, select our starting point from this list: 

Scanning and emailing your work before your sessions

Before each face-to-face video conference session, we’d like you to please send your tutor multi-page, color PDFs containing your homework.

To make this easy, please download our recommended scanning tool, TurboScan by piksoft (iOS download / Android download).

Then watch this quick tutorial to set it up.

Fees and guarantee

The 85-minute Intake session is billed as though it were a two-hour session, and is to be paid in advance. You will find an invoice in your email inbox shortly. This invoice is payable via your choice of credit card or bank transfer.

It’s important to all of us that all students and families feel good about our work together. So, during or following any session in which you don’t feel we’re doing great work towards your goals (including the very first), please let us know within three days of that appointment and we will issue a refund straight away.

Let us continue to help you.

Fees

Our intake session

After our consultation call together, our next step is usually an Intake session.  The intake session is 85 minutes long, and is generally run by Wes himself. The cost of an intake session varies; the July 2020 intake fee is $400.

Please expect an emailed invoice for the full amount. Please pay this invoice online (via credit card) at least 24 hours before the meeting. We will discuss ongoing work, including cost, during our first meeting. 

Need-based partial scholarships are often available. Please inquire.

Standard (ongoing) sessions

Moving forward, we will invoice you by email approximately monthly.  Our current hourly rates are:

  • Wes $400/hr ($600 per 85-minute session)
  • James, Michael, and T Lin $250/hr ($375 per 85-minute session)
  • Rora $200/hr ($300 per 85-minute session)    
Off-hours sessions

If you ever need a session at a time not listed on the schedule as available, please contact your tutor. If we can rearrange our schedule to accommodate you, we will. Such sessions incur an additional fee; we typically bill at time-and-a-half for such sessions.

Did we exceed your expectations?

Great! Please let us know, and please consider writing a review.
