4. Frequently asked questions
TJST enforces the following payment schedule for clients. It is depended upon your
FIRST session of the week (Monday – Saturday)
Payments are due on Fridays for your upcoming week of sessions if paying weekly
Payments are due on the 2nd of the Month for your upcoming sessions if paying monthly
Failure to make a timely payment will jeopardize client’s session(s) for the next week. Consistent late payments may put client’s services at risk of termination.
Because I understand the need to build trust, you are allowed to pay for the first session
at the beginning of the session. The future sessions will need to be paid in advance.
Payments are due at the BEGINNING of your session.
After booking, you will be redirected to a confirmation page with a payment link. You can pay immediately.
The session will not begin until the payment is made
You may pay through PayPal. Cash will not be accepted.
Invoices are sent the day before your payment is due. You will have until your payment date at 11:59pm to pay.
If you do not have a PayPal account, that is fine. You do not need to have a PayPal account to receive a PayPal invoice.
The invoice can be paid with any credit or debit card. The invoice sender does not receive your credit card information, nor do you receive theirs. This is a safe way to protect both client and TJ Samuel Learning Center
You are welcome to pay in advance of sessions. Simply request to have the invoice sent
to you for the amount you are paying in advance. If you decide to pay in advance, you will also receive a text confirmation saying that your payment has been received, the date that you are paid up to, and when your next payment is due.
The policy for cancellations and schedule changes would still be in affect for paying in advance.
Schedule changes (changing your session day and/or time) AND session cancellations must
take place 72 hours (3 days) before the original scheduled session in order to be given a
session credit (i.e. another session at no additional charge to client).
No refunds will be given for any reason. All payments are final
Excessive cancellations can result in termination of services. Cancelling three
consecutive weeks or five consecutive sessions (whichever comes first) will put client
and student at risk of losing services. The decision to terminate services will be left up to
the discretion of TJST staff. In the event of termination of services, Client will receive all
sessions currently paid for before termination takes effect.
In the event that a tutor of TJ Samuel Learning Center needs to cancel a session that was already paid for, due to unforeseen circumstances, Client will receive a session credit and instructions on what the student should study during that time.
Tutoring will take place in public locations that are agreed upon by Client and TJ Samuel Learning Center.
For Math, if the scores are failing, we will begin by going over skills that should have
been mastered in the previous grade via a practice test. Once we hit the place where the
difficulty lies, we will begin with that skill and work forward. Based on the teachers’
recommendation, and ability based on mastered skills, we will also work on what is going
on in the class and work backwards. The skills will eventually meet in the middle.
If the scores are passing, we will begin with a practice test for the skills that should have
been learned in this grade and complete the same process.
For reading, I will begin with the middle level of where the student should be based on
grade level and work up or down based the on the individual needs of that student.
For college level, sessions are tailored to the individual needs of the students
