How long is a tutoring session?
Sessions are a minimum of 1 hour, although usually 2 hours for the first session is best to cover as much as possible. Rhona starts the first session with tips on organizing your study materials and preparing for the exams, which can take 20 to 30 minutes. The rest of the session will look at a subject of the student's choice.
How many sessions do I need?
That is completely up to you. Some students want to cover a number of subject areas, whereas some want to limit their tutoring to 1 or 2 subjects.
What does it cost?
Rates are by the hour. As an educational service, GST and PST are not chargeable. Rates are paid at the end of each session via e-transfer or credit card.
