Kathleen and Ev live in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria. We typically meet with students at their homes or at a library. If you live in Alexandria, Arlington, or Falls Church, we can meet with you in person at your home. If you live elsewhere in Fairfax, please contact us to find out if you're within our area of coverage (if you live between the Beltway and the Potomac, you're good to go). 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. 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 in person on Mondays through Fridays between 4 PM and 7:30 PM. He also meets with students in person on Saturdays between 11 AM and 5 PM. He does not tutor on Sundays. He will always be unavailable between Christmas Eve and New Year's Day.
Kathleen is available to meet with students in person on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays between 4 PM and 7:30 PM. She also meets with students on Saturdays between 1 PM and 5 PM. She does not tutor on Sundays.
Ev's and Kathleen's calendars tend to book up several months in advance. Currently, Ev has limited availability over the next few months and more copious availability from September 2018 onward. Kathleen has limited availability over the next few months and more copious availability from June 2018 onward.
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 consultation 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.
- Individual in-home OR Skype tutoring with Ev: $150/hour ($160/hour starting 6/19/18)
- In-home tutoring for 2 students with Ev: $90/hour per student ($100/hour starting 6/19/18)

The initial phone consultation is free. Please note that the subsequent Skype planning session will be billed at Ev's normal hourly rate for Skype tutoring. The planning session typically lasts 30-40 minutes.
Kathleen and Ev both accept payment by cash or check. Ev also accepts payment by Paypal. You can pay as you go or for several meetings 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.
