TUITION
  
 
 
Tuition is a flat monthly fee of $150 for weekly one-hour lessons.  This guarantees that your spot will be reserved for you.  Thirty (30) days notice is required if you wish to discontinue lessons and one month's fee is required whether or not lessons are taken during that 30 days.  Final payment is due at the time of the thirty-day notice.  
 
Tuition covers 44 weeks of lessons per year.  

There are no lessons the week of Thanksgiving, the week of Christmas, the week of Columbia Public School's Spring Break, four weeks over the summer and one Flex week  (a total of 8 weeks). 


In addition, a make-up lesson is guaranteed if I must cancel a lesson.  If you cancel I will do my best to arrange a make-up lesson for you.   

Invoices are sent out monthly and can be paid by check, paypal,  or cash.  The first month fee is due at the time of the first lesson.
 
ABSENCES & MAKE-UP POLICY

Lessons which are canceled 24 hours in advance may be made up.  To cancel a lesson:
 
  • log in to your account on my website
  • go to the calendar and highlight the lesson you need to cancel
  • click on "reschedule"
  • click on "submit request"
Scheduling a make-up lesson is the responsibility of the Student/Parent.  To find a make-up slot:
  • log in to your account on my website
  • go to the calendar and highlight the "make-up slot" you want
  • click on "register"
  • click on "submit request"

I can also do Skype/FaceTime/Zoom lessons if a student is unable to make his/her lesson in person.  

If you have any questions about this process, please let me know.  

Lesson fees do not simply cover the time I spend face to face with each student.  Wendy Stevens has a great piece on  "Where Does My Tuition Go?
