Payment Policy

Standard Rate Plan

The Maryland STEM Program: Standard Rate Program offers students the lowest tutoring rate.

  • Homework Clinic - $25 per evening (8 students/4 hours)
  • Small Group Tutoring - $25 per hour (2 students/1 hour)
  • Private Tutoring - $25 per 1/2 hour (1 student/ 1/2 hour)

In this program, parents are required to purchase 4 sessions and book the sessions at the time of purchase. Sessions are required to be booked the same day and time each week until the total number of sessions are booked. When a student starts a new set of sessions, the day and time may be changed.

Regardless of attendance, students will use the sessions at the prior scheduled time. In this program, students will not receive make-up sessions when a session is missed; however, the student's session notes and homework will be emailed to their parent. 

Once a student has finished the program or wishes to take a break, as a courtesy to the tutor, they are required to inform the tutor at their last session so that the tutor may offer the session to another student. Any student who does not give notice at their last session must pay for the next session to return to the program in the future. 

At any time, due to excessive absences or an inability to collect payments timely, the Maryland STEM Program reserves the right not to allow a student to participate in the Standard Rate Plan.

Athletes are required to submit their game/practice schedule to gain special scheduling consideration in this plan.

Because of the minimal administrative duties required for Standard Rate Sessions, parents can enjoy our lowest rate. 

Students are not required to attend sessions Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve & Christmas Day, New Year's Eve & New Year's Day, and Easter Day & Easter Eve.  

No contracts are required. And no refunds will be made in the Standard Rate Plan.

  • Small Group Tutoring - $37 per hour (2 students/1 hour)
  • Private Tutoring - $37 per 1/2 hour (1 student/ 1/2 hour)

Parents cannot opt to join this plan. This plan is only available by invitation. If a parent has been a loyal customer for a period of 12 sessions or more, the tutor may offer this option. 

In this plan, parents are required to purchase 4 sessions; however, the parent may book the sessions individually at any time within a 6-month period. 

Regardless of attendance, students will use the sessions at the scheduled time. In this plan, students will not receive make-up sessions when a session is missed unless the student is ill and under the care of a physician. Make-up sessions require a physician's note and they cannot be used at the student's next prior scheduled visit. Make-up sessions are offered the first Sunday of each month at noon. Each make up sessions is 1/2 hour of private tutoring unless the student was scheduled for 1 hour of private tutoring.

Since the students in this plan don't have a regular appointment day/time, no notice is required when the student wishes to stop or take a break from the plan.

At any time, due to excessive absences, the Maryland STEM Program reserves the right not to not allow a student to participate any longer in the Flexible Scheduling Rate Plan.

Parent must keep in mind that the tutor has other clients and they must work around the tutor's schedule when booking an appointment. Tutors are highly motivated to book a student’s session.

No contracts are required. No refunds will be made in the Flexible Scheduling Rate Plan.
