Education

There are several tutoring options available. All are Ocean Grove approved and will be tailored to your needs. Our focus is on English and Language Arts.  For a complete list of subjects offered, please see below.

We can meet in your home, a library, or online. All of our meetings are 50 minutes because this is the most efficient for students. 30 minutes is not enough time to dive deep into anything, and an hour can start to seem like forever. Typically, we meet with students between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., but if you need another time, please let us know.

Sibling, and multi-student discounts are available, however we ask that the students be learning at similar “grade” levels.

Standard Packages: We would meet either one or two times per week for 50 minutes each. The per session price gets lower the more sessions you purchase.

Package A) $480 for 14 sessions

Package B) $420 for 12 sessions

Package C) $360 for 10 sessions

Package D) This is a great “trial” option. If you are new to homeschooling, or not interested in a semester-long commitment, this package is small and flexible.  It is five 50 minute meetings. We can meet once a week, or more depending on your needs and goals. If you decide you want to continue after the first five meetings, you can purchase more or change to another package.

$180 for 5 sessions

Package E) A la carte tutoring. If you need extra help with a certain topic or challenging material, this is a great choice. Many students use this when it comes to college admissions essays. It is simply a meet-when you-need-to option.

$40/single session

Please understand, these packages exist because they are the most common choices. If none of these options quite suit you, please reach out. We are flexible because we are parents too. We know the needs of our kids are the absolute highest priority.
