How does Helping Hand Tutoring work?

After a FREE consultation, 60-minute tutoring sessions will be scheduled either once or twice a week. Parents can elect to pay by the month or can choose a DISCOUNTED multiple month contract. All sessions are paid in advance. Sessions can be rescheduled in advance to accommodate vacations, etc at no charge.


How am I billed?

All sessions are paid in advance. There are provisions for rescheduling sessions for anticipated vacations, holidays, etc at no charge. Bills for the next  month will be emailed (or mailed upon request) by the 15th of each month and are due no later than the 20th.  All invoicing is handled through PayPal, but you do NOT have to have a PayPal account yourself. Payments are accepted via that site if you wish or also through a check or cash.


Where are the sessions held?

Tutoring sessions can be held at the student's home, as long as a parent or other responsible adult is present (or the student is over 21). Sessions can also be held at public libraries, a parent's business as long as a suitable work space is available for tutoring, or other agreed upon location.


Are Sessions available in the evening?

Yes!  Sessions can be set up during the hours of 10 AM until 8 PM from Monday through Thursday and until 4 PM on Fridays. Saturday sessions are available between 10 AM and noon.

We all learn differently

Children learn differently, as do adults. Some young people thrive in a classroom environment, while others struggle with the noise and distractions.


Does your child doodle all over everything?


Or does she read comic books or graphic novels in her spare time?


Maybe he has to process information verbally.


None of these learning modalities is "wrong." They are simply different, and one-on-one tutoring can allow children to thrive as they learn "their way."

Deborah spends a great deal of time assessing each student, researching the best ways to help with that student's needs, and then finding fun, interesting ways to teach so they can learn.
