Kids’ Place Tutoring

Kids' Place is excited to offer professional tutoring for the 2019-20 school year! Whether your child needs assistance with understanding and completing assignment, help with study skills, and/or organizing written responses to assignments, studying for tests, or learning spelling rules and generalizations, help is on the way!

Tutoring Schedule/Availability

Tutoring sessions will be available every Tuesday and Thursday from 3:00 to 6:00 PM. Scheduling sessions will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis; each student must commit to his/her scheduled tutoring time, as there will be little flexibility in the schedule to change time slots. *If the tutor has to cancel a session, it will be made up at an agreed time and day without charge.

Cost: $40.00 per 30-minute session

Parents can choose as many 30-minute weekly sessions as they would like per month. In order to accommodate 6 students per tutoring day, we request that parents refrain from booking hour blocks at a time, unless there is availability in the schedule to accommodate the request. Students who are unable to be scheduled for September will be put on a waiting list. 
Payment for the number of sessions requested will be charged the beginning of each month to your credit card on file.
