Session Location

Suitable locations for tutoring sessions are the open lobby area of any apartment complex associated with student housing, coffee shops, study halls, library rooms, personal homes (High School students typically engage this route) and others not listed here.

Payment Policy

All payments must be made up-front before the start of a tutoring session. Cash, check or deposit transfers through secure apps without processing fees are acceptable forms of payment. Once a payment is made, refunds are only provided in instances of session cancellations at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled session time (see Cancellation Policy below). If a cancellation is made within 24 hours of a scheduled session time and payment has been made, refunds are not allowed. The best way to avoid refund issues is to pay directly before a tutoring session starts. Paying at least one day ahead of time is acceptable, but may result in your loss of a refund if a cancellation is not made according to the Cancellation Policy.

Cancellation Policy

A cancellation notice must be submitted at least 24 hours before the scheduled session time via the Contact form. At this time, if you do not submit a notice of cancellation at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled session time, you will be banned from scheduling any tutoring appointment with Essential Tutor for a duration of 45 days. Serious emergencies will be considered.

Note: tutoring fees listed on this page are non-negotiable and are subject to change without notice.
