is your style of tutoring right for me?
Most students don't need (or want) to sit with a tutor and listen to the same concepts that confused them in class. They need time to practice on their own, getting help with questions as they arise. Mr. Dwyer has created his tutoring group to empower students instead of merely enabling them. With the flexible "group" sessions, students have more time to work on the difficult concepts that they learned in class - with the confidence that Mr. Dwyer is there to help them through the tough spots. As students need help, Mr. Dwyer records his instruction using the latest technology and sends the video to the student via email (see example). Students also get access to a video library of other videos created by Mr. Dwyer over the years.
Do you tutor students with special needs?
My group tutoring method is best suited for motivated students who can advocate for themselves and are comfortable working in a group setting. Many students who have IEP or 504 plans do not fit into this category. I'm happy to discuss your specific needs to determine if my program is right for you.
How long is each session?
Most sessions are scheduled for 90 minutes, with available spots for 2 students to start every 30 minutes. This allows the students to get their questions answered and have enough time to practice the concepts on their own with additional support from Mr. Dwyer.
Do you offer family discounts?
My goal is to make tutoring affordable for everyone. Paying for multiple kids can be very difficult for a family. Please email me if you are considering enrolling multiple students in tutoring and I'll do my best to accommodate your situation.
How do i cancel or change a session?
If you need to cancel or change a session, first try to log on to SignUp Genius and cancel/change it yourself. If you can't figure out how to do this, just shoot an email with your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
what forms of payment do you accept?
You can pay either by PayPal, or by sending money through your online bank (contact me for details), or with cash. I do not accept personal (paper) checks.
