[6/1/21 Update: Kathleen & I have been tutoring exclusively online for the last year, but we will again offer the option of in-person tutoring for fully vaccinated families on 7/1/21.]
Kathleen and Ev live in Springfield, VA. We typically meet with students at their homes or at a library. If you live in Alexandria, Arlington, or Fairfax, we can meet with you in person at your home. If you live in Maryland, DC, or elsewhere in Virginia, you are probably outside of our driving range.
For students who live outside of our driving range but would still like to work with us, we do offer our services through Skype or Zoom. We may also be able to meet at a library, school, or coffee shop that lies within our working area. Please schedule a free phone consultation if you wish to discuss such an arrangement.
Ev is available to meet with students on Tuesdays through Fridays between 4 PM and 7:30 PM. He also meets with students on Saturdays between 11 AM and 5 PM. He does not tutor on Sundays or Mondays. He will always be unavailable between Christmas Eve and New Year's Day.
Kathleen is available to meet with students on Thursdays and Fridays between 4 PM and 7:30 PM.
Ev's and Kathleen's calendars often book up in advance. They currently have availability from October onwards.
Kathleen and I keep a short-term waiting list for students who wish to schedule tutoring sessions in the near future when we are already fully booked. If any of our other students cancel, the students on the waiting list have first choice of the newly available times. If you wish to arrange a full course of 10-12 tutoring sessions, however, we would encourage you to contact us well in advance.
Finally, we keep several times set aside each month for the initial planning session that we hold with all new students. (Read more about that here.) We would be happy to schedule a planning session with you even when our normal tutoring schedule is booked solid.
There is no charge for rescheduling or cancelling a meeting unless you make the change less than 24 hours in advance. We charge the full cost of the scheduled session if the cancellation occurs on less than 24 hours notice.

Kathleen and Ev both accept payment by cash or check (made out to "Tutoring by Ev & Kathleen, LLC". We also accept payment by Venmo. You can pay at the time of each session or for several sessions in advance. You are under no obligation to sign up for a certain number of meetings, and you can stop the tutoring at any time. We only ask that you provide us with at least 24 hours' notice if you wish to cease the tutoring, as indicated in our Cancellation policy above.
