Private Tutoring Policies

  • Minimum session length is a 60-minute hour; it is the client’s responsibility to maximize the lesson by being prepared with questions to address during the tutoring session.
  • When the student has an assignment, it is imperative that the student email the assignment (usually a test taken at home) to the tutor the day before the tutoring session.  This give the tutor enough time to upload the test in time for the session.  It is not acceptable to send the test the same day as the session.
  • All tutoring is prepaid via check or online with Mastercard or VISA.
  • Cancellation requires 48-hours’ notice.  We charge $25 for less than 24-hours notice, but full hourly rate charged if student is a “no show”.
  • Refunds for tutoring packages are prorated plus a 10% administrative fee.
  • Guarantees are individualized based on student profile.

Kate Dalby reserves the right to discontinue tutoring if she believes the sessions are unproductive.  In that case, she will prorate any refund.

We require payment in full in advance to schedule an appointment.  If you buy a package you must schedule all the tutoring sessions at the time you purchase your package.  You can change an appointment online yourself, but you must make the change at least two days in advance.  You can change an appointment by opening up the email for your “new appointment” and clicking on the link that says “view appointment details”.  We cannot guarantee a replacement appointment that will work for your schedule.  You can see the scheduling calendar by clicking this link.
You may pay with VISA, MasterCard, cash, or check. You may register and pay with a credit card online, or mail a check to Inspiring Test Preparation, Inc.  PO Box 68 Oakton, VA  22124-0068.  Please keep in mind – if paying by check, your seat is not guaranteed until we receive your payment.
