If the parent or student calls within 24 hours of the scheduled tutoring session, one session per schedule Fee Agreement may be rescheduled at no extra charge. Otherwise, it will be treated as a non-refundable missed session. If the tutor must cancel the session, it will be rescheduled and you will not be charged for the rescheduled session.

If you are meeting with a tutor on a consistent basis and need a few more sessions, you may add more sessions at the 8-session discounted rate.
