Will I be reminded of my child’s lesson?
Parents and students will receive an email reminder 30-24 hours in advance of the next scheduled lesson, reminding you of the lesson time, tutor, and location. The deadline for on-time cancellations is 6 pm the day before the lesson. If a cancellation is received after the 6 pm deadline, a $30 cancellation fee is charged.
What if I have a conflict and need to reschedule?
We work hard to schedule students into a time slot that will work each week for the sake of consistency. We ask that you look ahead through your calendar to identify any conflicts as early as possible and let us know of those conflicts. While we cannot guarantee that there will be an alternative time slot open if your child needs to reschedule, you can contact one of our Directors or your tutor directly to see if there is an alternative time slot open in his/her schedule — just remember the 6 pm cancellation deadline!
How will I be updated about my child’s progress?
Lesson summaries are sent weekly to the email you provided in the registration. Include your child’s email address in his account so your child can also receive emailed lesson summaries and HW reminders. If you have questions about your child’s progress, contact one of our Directors or your child’s tutor directly.
What can I use my online account for?
Parents and student can use their online accounts to view the calendar to see upcoming lessons or request sessions. You can also view lesson summaries and tutor contact information. Once your registration has been processed, you will receive an email to confirm your account and set your password. You can log into your account here:
