Free Assessment & Booking
Before I commence working with the student I will discuss the Student Success Tutoring service with the parent / payer on a phone call or Skype session. The assessment session with the parent / payer will be free.
All sessions and packages need to be paid in advance. With tutoring / coaching packages if we decide to discontinue after the first session I will refund you per the terms and conditions for that package.
If I consider the student is not a good fit I will call you and discuss the reasons. We can then decide if we try another approach or a joint approach. It depends on the level of support that is required to make a significant shift with the student, some are fast and easy and some require extensive assistance and encouragement to undo deep habits. However my results with student has generally been very positive and often transformational.
We will ensure we all understand the service agreement so everyone’s expectations are met.
First session with the student
The first session with the student will cover some of the basics of study and what they want to achieve. It will be about building rapport. Some simple tasks will be set to start this new life changing process for the student. This is a general chat and assessment to see what they are doing and what they want. This will ensure we are a good match and there will be a great outcome.
I am here to transform lives and give students the skill sets to get great grades and deal with life in a resourceful manner.
Pricing & Payment
Australians and New Zealanders can pay by direct debit and thus get a discount as its at their exchange rate, otherwise the sessions are payable in USD (US dollars).
# Booking for the second session onwards can occur once payment is made if ‘paying as you go”. Packages will have the set day and time for consistency, as spaces are limited.
# I will call / Skype at the appointed time. The session will be over phone if either of us don’t have internet access (or internet drops out mid session). I will notify you before hand if it is a phone session otherwise it will be over Skype (etc). This will help ensure sessions take place.
# Sessions start and end on time, so please be available at 10 past the hour for 50 minute session (eg: 6:10pm).
# For the tutoring one-on-one packages parent feedback calls will be 10 mins maximum, I will call rather than email as this is more time efficient and we understand each other better that way. We will discuss this before we start tutoring.
Special Affordable Pricing
The standard rate for this style of Academic Life Coaching is between $150 to $200 per 50 minute session in the USA. My abilities and skills set put my value at the top of the price bracket. Academic Life Coaching is a new term to Australia and New Zealand, though this is what I did back in the mid 1990s at an equivalent rate of $150 in today's money.
The below pricing is extremely good value and makes it affordable to the ordinary family to get expert help. Send a booking email with the required information and lets have a free assessment chat.
