Q: How does the service work?

Q: Where do tutoring sessions take place?
A: One-on-one tutoring takes place in your home, library, or other mutually agreed upon location at a time convenient to your family.

Back to Top

Q: What are the tutor qualifications?
A: Tutors have proven backgrounds in education and tutoring. Dynamic Learning Opportunities, Inc. only works with instructors who are committed to their craft and who continuously demonstrate integrity, diligence, compassion and professionalism. Tutors are required to meet commitments and consistently receive positive feedback from students and parents.

Q: How are sessions managed?
A: You can expect the tutor to open each session warmly, work with the student to plan the session, keep the student engaged and the session on track, and close the session on a positive note. While working with the student, the tutor will strive to promote a positive learning environment, balance compassion, and caring with discipline and firmness, and reinforce student self-confidence and self-esteem.

Q: Is a set curriculum followed?
A: Each tutor determines how best to approach a tutoring session based on the subject matter, student goals, and personal style. Your student should make sure to have his or her school textbooks and assignments ready. Tutors may also suggest supplemental materials, such as workbooks or flashcards, as needed. Depending on the student's needs, tutoring efforts could focus on anything from current work and organization to clarifying missed concepts from past assignments and correcting test mistakes.

Q: How does the tutor know what to work on?
A: The tutor communicates with the student and parents at each session as well as with the Dynamic Learning staff. Tutors are also available to speak with teachers or other specialists via phone and email.

Q: Do you guarantee tutoring quality?
A: We choose our tutors extremely carefully, so you can anticipate a successful session. In the event the tutor is not a good academic or personal match, we will provide you with a different tutor as well as a free hour of tutoring.

Q: How much do the sessions cost? And, how do I pay?
A: The cost for most tutoring is $35 and up. Specialized courses may have a different rate. Dynamic Learning Opportunities, Inc. accepts personal checks and credit cards through PayPal.

Q: Do we have to commit to a minimum number of sessions?
A: Schedule as many or as few sessions as you need, and feel free to plan as you go. There are no minimums. The approach is flexible to meet changing academic needs. When the subject is mastered, simply let us know you're finished and that's it. The tutors know that their goal is to work themselves out of a job!

Q: How long are the tutoring sessions?
A: Tutoring sessions start at 1-hour and can run for as long as you want. The length can vary from session-to-session as long as you inform your tutor in advance for scheduling purposes.

Back to Top

Q: How often does the tutoring take place?
A: Tutoring can take place as frequently or infrequently as needed, and can change according to your needs. Our only request is that you help the tutor manage his or her time by giving plenty of advanced notice.

Q: I have twins who need tutoring in the same subject area. Can I get a reduced rate, or do I need to schedule two separate sessions?
A: Yes, price breaks can be given for twins. However, first, we would consider how your twins prefer to work. Some sets of twins work better as a team while others prefer working separately. Remember, the most important thing is to make sure that each student is getting the most out of each session.

Back to Top

Q: Can you tutor my child and a best friend…or two?
A: Yes, and price breaks are given for tutoring more than one child. This is a great way to help your child and his/her friends benefit from our personalized tutoring services while sharing the cost with other parents.

Back to Top

Q: What if my child doesn’t “connect” with the tutor, can we switch tutors?
A: Yes. Our goal is to make sure that learning is always taking place, and we recognize that sometimes, through no fault of the student or the tutor, the communication or special “connection” just isn’t there. So, we offer to switch tutors and do not charge you for that original session.

Back to Top

Q: If my child’s tutoring appointment will be outside of our home, can the tutor drive my child to their session?
A: No. Tutors are not allowed to have students in their cars/vehicles for any reason.

Back to Top

Q: What if we have to cancel or reschedule the tutoring session?
A: Please cancel your scheduled session with the tutor, not with the office. Also please cancel or reschedule at least 24 hours in advance so that tutors can fill the time slot with another student. Note that DLO will bill a full hour for any session scheduled and cancelled unless notice of cancellation is given at least 24 hours prior to the session.

Q: Do I have to sign a contract?
A: Yes, you will need to sign a contract, but you may prepay for as many hours as you think you will need for your child. Generally, if you expect your child to be tutored one hour per week, then you would pay for 4 hours of tutoring at $35 per hour (for regular tutors), a total of $140. Then you would sign a contract.

Back to Top

Q: What if my child only uses 2 hours of tutoring and I have paid $140. Do I get a refund?
A: Absolutely. We will refund $70. We only charge for the time a student actually spends with the tutor (except in special cases).
