Fees & Discounts

 

Academic Tutoring per hour (Individual) $70.00*  (includes prepayment discount of $5 off each hour​)

  • Includes: one hour session, preparation for the tutorial appointment, a review of online grade(s) if applicable, and a completed Feedback Form.

 

  • We offer a “Prepayment” discount of $5/hour if you would like to pay in advance for your tutoring appointments for the month. Together with the parents/guardians, the student, and ourselves, we assess the needs of your student and plan on “x” amount of sessions to occur during a particular month. We then invoice you at the beginning of the month, and payment is due by the 10th of the month of service. By choosing this plan, it lowers the hourly cost to $70.00 per hour. If payment arrives after the 10th, the prepayment option is no longer applicable and therefore reverts back to the regular rate of service (see below).

 

  • Please note : With this prepayment discount/option, all prepaid hours are booked in advance and are locked in for those agreed upon days and times. If you don’t want to lock in certain days and times, you may pay after services have been received (see below).

Independent Study (including any online coursework):

Any independent coursework done independently or online through Brigham Young University or other online courses will be assessed an additional fee for outside prep work on the tutor’s part. This includes reviewing all materials, preparing a binder for the student and tutor to work through as well as preparing for speed-backs or other ongoing assessments. Usually online courses require some additional outside online work on the tutor’s part, which is not included in our hourly fees. This fee will be determined when the course title has been given to Bright Horizons.

Late Payment Fee:

Due to excessive unpaid balances, we unfortunately have been forced to implement a late payment policy. We hope to encourage all of our clients to stay current on their invoice balances. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but hope you understand our dilemma.

 

Prepayments not received by the 10 th of the month of service will revert back to the full fee on the 11 th . You will then have until the 10 th of the following month of service to submit payment in full. If payment has still not arrived by the 10 th , a late fee of $35/month/outstanding invoice will be added to your invoice.

 

Full Fee:

Those choosing to pay after services have been received have until the 10 th of the following month of service to submit full payment. If payment has not arrived by the 10 th of that month, a late fee of $35/ month will be added to your invoice.
