FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the difference between Periscope and other tutoring services?
At Periscope, we have our own offices so our environment is controlled. We offer tutoring for students of all ages and we do not require clients to buy tutoring packages.
How do I get started?
Most clients schedule a free consultation to look around and discuss how tutoring may work for them. This also helps us match clients with the tutor that best fits their needs.
How much does it cost?
Regular academic tutoring costs $44 an hour.
Do I have to sign up for an hour?
No, some clients choose half an hour two times a week or 45 minutes once a week.
I only need tutoring for a limited time. Do you offer that?
Yes, we can schedule just one session if that is all you require, though we are not able to offer last minute scheduling to new clients.
What about preparing for the ACT and the SAT?
We offer individual and group preparation, scheduled around students' needs. Individual sessions are $45 an hour and group classes cost about $30 an hour per person.
Do you guarantee your results?
No, we cannot make a promise that just by coming to tutoring you will increase your scores or your grades, though most students do so. Test results involve many variables such as test administration peculiarities, students' states of mind and particular test content. We discuss all of these in tutoring.
ACT/SAT Test Prep Options:
-Periscope offers packages focused on Math or English in 6 individual sessions plus test assessment for $390 for those who want to focus intensively on these subject areas.
-Small group classes with teacher-led instruction at $75 per student for a 2-2.5 hour session.
-Another option is individual hourly test preparation in any area you wish at $45/hour.
We also help students prepare for the GED and the GRE.
