Pricing & Policy
All tuition is performed in small groups of 2 – 3 students in our Tuition Room at Ferny Hills.
Assessment – $46.50
Every student is assessed before commencing tuition to establish the last point they worked with confidence. This gives us a starting point for tuition so we can develop a plan to bring them aligned with the class by building on that confidence. This assessment, performed by Lynette, will at times highlight learning problems caused by such issues as tracking problems with the eyes. The assessment takes approximately 90 minutes (45 minutes with the student and 45 minutes feedback to the parent).
Tuition Small Group – $31.00/hour (Term block price); $40.00/hour (Part term price)
Tuition is purchased in Term blocks, being the number of weeks allocated for a Queensland school Term. The price for a Term block of tuition is calculated on hours per week of attendance and the number of weeks until the end of Term. All purchased blocks expire at the end of Term.
Tuition Cost Per Term (based on 10 week terms, price is adjusted for shorter terms)
- 1 hour per week = $310/Term block (Minimum purchase)
- 1.5 hours per week = $465/Term block
- 2 hours per week = $620/Term block
- 2.5 hours per week = $775/Term block
- 3 hours per week = $930/Term block
- 3.5 hours per week = $1085/Term block (recommended for older students only)
- 4 hours per week = $1240/Term block (recommended for older students only)
As tuition is during the school Term students are expected (barring exceptional circumstances) to attend each week of the Term. No unpaid time slots will be reserved for students who are unable to attend each week. They will be made available to students desiring those time slots.
It is our goal to have your child aligned with their class as soon as possible so missed appointments must be made up. Fridays (3:30-5:30) are allocated as Catch-Up days for students who are unable to attend their appointment at their normal time for that week. There are three Catch-Up Fridays allocated per Term (Week 3, Week 6 and Week 9). If your son or daughter is unable to attend at their normal time then it is advisable to make a Friday Catch-Up appointment to ensure you do not lose the hours at the end of the Term.
*By purchasing tuition you have purchased an allocated appointment time each week that is not transferable. For this reason we have allocated Catch Up time on certain Fridays to assist with unforeseen events.
One on One Tuition is available by appointment. Please call for details.
All Tuition Is By Appointment
Because of demand for this style of tuition your student will be booked in at regular appointment times each week. Other students will be attending later that afternoon so we ask that appointment times are closely adhered to. A student who runs fifteen minutes late has a roll on effect for the other students who follow. Appointment times cannot be altered or transferred without prior agreement.
Cancellation/Missed Appointments – Re-scheduling of appointment is required to ensure hours (and fees) are not lost.
If you are unable to make your appointment we ask that you notify us as soon as possible so we may book you in for the next scheduled Catch-Up Friday. As your purchased tuition block expires at the end of Term three Fridays afternoons are available to help make up the lost appointment. These days are not available as normal appointment times.
The Tuition Room is closed for school holidays though arrangements may be made for special programs or tuition to existing clients.
