The above prices are for a one-hour session, in the student's home (or other agreed venue), assuming travel time from the West Ryde / Meadowbank area of Sydney is not excessive (e.g. within ~10 min by car/train) in the prevailing traffic.  Additional travel fees will be arranged in advance where applicable.  

Note:  young children typically do not need tutoring (in which case they should not be subjected to it).  If your child is one of the small proportion of young children who do need tutoring, then you should seek a specialist in early childhood learning & education.  

Travel fee

Travel fees in the case of 'excessive' travel is arranged by negotiation on a case-by-case basis. 

Group rate

If more than one student will simultaneously attend the session, add a further $10 per student (per hour).

Bulk rate

There is no 'bulk rate', nor 'term fee', nor 'semester price'. 

Cancellation policy

There is no penalty for cancellations made with more than 24 hours' notice, or with a medical certificate (or other cogent mitigating factor). 


  • A fee equal to half the hourly rate will be payable in instances of "late notification" prior to my travel to the appointment venue. 
  • a fee equal to the full hourly rate plus the full travel fee will be payable if I have already travelled (or begun travelling) to the appointment venue. Being more than 20 minutes late will be counted as a cancellation. 

Lateness policy

Billing starts from the agreed appointment time.  For example, if you are ten minutes late, then you still have to pay for my time waiting for you. The finishing time will not be changed.  

Being more than 20 minutes late will be counted as a cancellation.  (See terms above.) 

Payment terms

Payment should be made by cash only (exact change is appreciated), unless by prior arrangement. 

For regular clients only: PayPal payment, credit card payment, or direct bank deposit/transfer can be arranged (to be paid in advance).  PayPal payment and credit card payment incur additional transaction fees.
