Why do you list your prices?
Most tutoring agencies require you to enter all of your contact information and set up an interview before they will give you a quote. This is so that they may check the area, what tutors they have available, what subjects you will want the tutor for, the special needs of your child, and how much they may have to offer for the tutor’s travel. They also need to ensure that they make money after paying the tutor — and this includes the overhead of the office, agents, and advertising. The best agencies submit their tutors to rigorous background checks. If you are looking for quality combined with value, it may take quite a bit of time to shop around before you have a general idea what you will end up paying. You may also have to try out a couple of tutors before you find the right fit for you and/or your child. As experienced educators, we encourage this relationship and have a deep respect for the qualities of such proactive agencies.
Las Vegas Hope Tutors is found via referral only. We do not advertise. We do not attempt to compete with the big agencies because we are too small. We do not travel much further than the 10-mile radius of our tutors’ homes. We do not have a large office. We do, however, require full background checks and a history of working for and with students and other agencies. We sometimes simply do not have the capacity for a new student and may refer special cases to another agency. For this reason, we are free to post our fees up front.
Why do you bill in advance?
Our time together is valuable, and your scheduled sessions are taken very seriously. To establish a mutual respect for our and your time, sessions are billed in blocks in advance. This is an industry standard, and for good reason. Imagine depending upon your job to feed your family, only to show up to the office and be told that your boss cancelled your workday without pay. It is too late for you to get another job to make up for that day’s wages, so what do you do? This is what it is like when a tutoring session is cancelled same-day. We want to protect our tutors’ interests as much as yours, so we pay our tutors for their time!
We will keep track of the time you have left and let you know when you are due for a renewal.*
