On-Going Monthly Scheduled Sessions/Tuition/Schedule

Students may sign up for On-Going Monthly Scheduled Sessions, which are defined as same time and day each week for a minimum of 3 months. Our monthly clients have tutor preference/priority over Drop-In students. Sessions are one hour in length and semi-private (usually up to 3 students per tutor). For students who need help with academic concepts, this is our most successful program.

CANCELLATION POLICY: Students may cancel a session with 24 HOURS NOTICE and reschedule at no additional charge. Any rescheduled sessions must be completed within 30 days of the cancelled session and may be used only if the student is then currently scheduled as a monthly student and is current with all payments. Make-ups may not be used during additional Finals Review Sessions. If a student does not show up for a session without cancelling at least 24 hours ahead of their scheduled time, the student will be not receive a make-up for that session. Another appointment may be scheduled, but will be charged at the Drop-In rate of $48 for a semi-private or $65 for a private session. 

Our tutors are scheduled and paid based on the student’s monthly commitments and, as a result, SEC is able to offer the preferred pricing for Monthly Scheduled Sessions. When a student does not show or give proper notice, SEC is unable to fill that slot in the tutors schedule and is still obligated to pay them accordingly. Tuition remains the same each month whether it is a 5 week month or a shortened month due to holidays. If the student is not able to commit to the Monthly Scheduled Sessions, SEC does offer the Drop-In Program described below.

Homework Support
SEC’s Homework Support Program is designed for students who need on-going help with daily study skills, organization, planning, motivation and timely assignment completion. It is not subject tutoring but rather, guided and focused study time monitored by an experienced educator. Should it be determined that the student requires specific subject tutoring in addition to homework support, parents will be notified to schedule tutoring accordingly. Our homework support program is most successful with students whose grades may be suffering due to missing assignments. This program can also be augmented with either our Drop-In or On-Going monthly tutoring sessions.
