Free Trial Session
The best candidate for my tutoring program is a student for whom my approach resonates. [See: Methodology] If it doesn’t feel right to you, then it probably isn’t right for you.
In order to give prospective students an opportunity to try out the Mr. Test Prep approach before making any kind of financial investment, I offer a full, two-hour trial session, free of charge.
During this session, the student and I spend some time getting to know each other, and the student works through a diagnostic test. Not only will the trial session give me a better idea of where the student struggles, but it also gives the student a taste of my tutoring style and offers a glimpse into how things work here at Mr. Test Prep Headquarters.
After the Free Trial Session, I have a phone conference with one of the student’s parents to discuss how the diagnostic went and recommend a test prep plan that fits the student’s needs. During this conversation, I’ll offer the family a score satisfaction guarantee and discuss financial assistance, if necessary.
If the family feels I’m a good fit, then we can set up the first paid session. If not, I’m happy to recommend another local tutor who may align more closely with what you’re looking for. The last thing I want to do is strong-arm anyone into working with me, even if that means giving business to one of my competitors. After 18 years in the business, I’m 100% convinced that my approach is the best way to prepare for standardized testing, but some parents want something more traditional, and I fully support that decision.
Cost Each 2hr session is $250. Practice tests are free of charge. Investments of time and money vary from student to student. Depending on the score improvement desired, my test prep services can cost anywhere from five hundred to six thousand dollars.
Payment Policy Our policy is “pay as you go”. We do not invoice: however, we are happy to accept advanced payments or will create a payment schedule if necessary.
Skype Sessions Skype sessions are available for students with special circumstances or challenged by the commute. Skype sessions are 2 hrs long and $250.
