Tutoring

Overview: PrepSuccess™ provides tutoring to one, two or three persons at a time that will improve your skills and knowledge for use during entrance exams or professional certification exams. We also mentor you in the completion of applications to college and in the selection of an academic track that meets your needs and future career goals. Tutors spend the first two-hour session teaching and assessing your skills in order to determine the number of sessions you need to achieve your goals. If you live outside commuting distance, you can receive tutoring live over the Internet. For more information on our web cast options, please select the Online Access tab in the menu bar above.

Fees: Our TUTORING SERVICES begin at $130 for the first two-hour session ($65/hour) and are as low as $50/hour based on the number of additional hours you purchase. The fee does NOT include the cost of textbooks. To start the process, purchase the 2-hour minimum and the tutor will contact you to coordinate the date and time for your first session. After the first session, you and your tutor will agree on the number of hours needed to meet your goals. You can then re-register and pay as you go or select discounted rates for longer blocks of time.

Refunds / Transfers: Faculty reserve the date and time of tutoring sessions to best meet your schedule. Refunds are not available if you miss a session because we must pay your tutor. If you cannot attend a session for which you are registered, you may transfer your fee to a future session. A $50 Fee must be paid if requested 72 hours or more prior to the start of a session. Refunds or changes are not available if requested less than 72 hours before the start of a tutoring session.
