I am not currently taking on any new students, however this may change after the beginning of the year (2014). Currently my workload simply doesn't allow for the time it takes to devote to preparing material and lesson plans for new students. I apologize for the inconvenience.
Prices: The price for a lesson is $15 per hour. If multiple students are in attendance the price is $15 per person, per hour.
Scheduling: Lessons are generally given once a week. If you want them to be more or less frequent that can be arranged, but you will need to talk to me about it first. Unless you tell me otherwise I will always schedule you for the same time and day every week for as long as you choose to continue taking lessons. If you decide to stop taking lessons, or take a break from them please let me know.
If you cancel or reschedule on the same day as your scheduled lesson you have to pay a $10 fee on or before your next lesson. This is mostly just to keep down the number of cancels/reschedules, and hopefully to let me know a day in advance if something does come up.
You are paying for my time as well as my experience. When you show up late for a lesson without letting me know in advance it will take up the time you are paying for. For example; if your lesson is from 4pm-5pm and you show up at 4:25 without letting me know that you'll be late then the lesson will still end at 5pm and you will still owe me the full $15 even though the lesson was only 35 minutes long. If you let me know at least three hours in advance then we can change the lesson's start time accordingly (if possible) and you won't have a short lesson.
If you do show up late, or don't let me know you'll be late at least three hours before your lesson then you can still have a full hour lesson if you pay a $5 late fee.
If you don't show up and don't let me know in advance that you are going to cancel/reschedule then there will be a full $15 fee due on or before your next lesson.
Payment is expected at the beginning of every lesson. I am currently only accepting cash. If you don't have the payment please cancel or reschedule your lesson for a time when you will be able to pay. If you show up and cannot pay, but would like to have a lesson anyway there will be a $15 fee due on or before your next lesson. This is in addition to both of the lesson's fees and means you would owe $45 at the beginning of your next lesson ($15 for the fee, $15 for the lesson you didn't pay for, and $15 for the lesson you are taking that day).
Lessons are $15 for an hour. If you choose to leave early it does not change the price of the lesson.
I usually do not have change available, but I can apply overpay to your next lesson's price and/or fees. Please keep this in mind when paying for your lessons.
