TravelDue to high appointment volumes, Amy is only able to travel to students in the Harbour View area of Suffolk, VA.
Please contact other tutors directly to discuss their locations and in-person policies.
Remote sessionsRemote sessions are typically conducted from tutors' homes. We use online video conferencing software such as Zoom and Google Meet. Your tutor will inform you of their preferred meeting method and provide initial meeting instructions and support.
Late CancellationsSessions cancelled within 72 hours of their start time will incur a late cancellation fee equal to 40% of the cancelled session price.
No-ShowsSessions which a student does not attend with no notice of cancellation will be charged the full session price.
Session DurationSessions are purchased in half-hour increments, and the shortest appointment duration is 60 minutes. Families are responsible for the amount of time they book and will be charged based on that amount. Students who provide no advance notice of a need to end their meeting early will still be responsible for the full session price. If a student is late to their appointment, we will work to the end of their scheduled time, but no later.
Proof of Progress EvaluationsProof of Progress letters will be returned within 7 days of notification that materials are ready for review. Families are responsible for sending Proof of Progress letters and proof of evaluator credentials to their school system by August 1, the deadline for Proof of Progress submissions in Virginia. Notifications regarding sample readiness sent on or after July 24 of each year will incur a $10 late submission fee per evaluation. All payments are expected within two weeks of receipt of letter(s). Payment method information is available on this site as well as in the email sent along with Proof of Progress letters.
