Tutoring, How Writing is Like Music
Instructor: Rebecca Hein
My rate is $40 per hour, but you can reduce it by bundling. The more time you purchase, the less you pay per hour.
4 hours for $140 (a $160 value) hours to be completed in approximately 4-6 weeks
6 hours for $180 ( a $240 value) hours to be completed in approximately 6-10 weeks
8 hours for $200 (a $320 value) hours to be completed in approximately 8-16 weeks
All packages will be a combination of phone time (critiquing and tutoring) and time I spend reading/evaluating your child’s work prior to these phone calls. Ideally phone calls should take place weekly and can be from 30-90 minutes long, depending on your child’s needs. Calls are scheduled at our mutual convenience.
Tutoring via email correspondence is also available, but phone calls are a much better value; typically by phone we can get through more than twice the material in the same amount of time.
Payment: You pay half the total before we schedule the first phone call (or if working via email, before your child sends the first piece to be critiqued/discussed). The remaining balance is due after approximately half the hours have been received. Paypal: send payment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Paper check: make payable to Hein Family Enterprises, Inc. 10205 W. Hwy. 220, Casper, WY 82604
Policies: A free half hour will be added to your package if your child hasn’t taken one of my free classes. If, 24 hours prior to a scheduled phone call, you notify me BY PHONE to cancel (307-472-0208), that call will be rescheduled. If you miss a scheduled call without notifying me, you will forfeit the call (pay for it but not receive it) unless illness or emergency prevented your keeping that appointment. If I miss or cancel a call, I will reschedule it.
