    Tutoring/Group Classes for Preschool – First Grade

    Please refer to our Early Learning page for details.

    Customized 1:1 Private Tutoring

    We can use the curriculum of your choice or provide you with our own curriculum based on common core requirements. We can also recommend skills to work on between sessions.

    1:1 Tuition per child
    Packages 1 hour*/week Each Additional Hour* That Month
    Tuition Per Month** $260 $65

    * 55 minute session; **4 weeks/month

    In order to provide your child with the optimum opportunity to learn and progress, we may initially recommend two hours per week.

    Any new student special applies to first month of tutoring. All tuition payments are non-refundable.

    Customized Online 1:1 Tutoring

    If you cannot make it to the center, online tutoring may be a viable option. Please contact us for details at [email protected].

    Customized 2:1 Personal Tutoring for Siblings

    We know that often it is easier for a parent to schedule to have two siblings in a session at the same time and that children may not have the patience to spend 2 hours at a stretch at the center.

    In order to accommodate this situation, we offer 1.5 hour sessions.

    The format of the sessions depends on the children’s needs. Sometimes they may need to be individualized 45-minute sessions. At other times the tutor can easily answer one child’s questions as the other child practices and vice versa. It is important that each child receive personalized attention focused on their individual goals and subject of study.

    If you would like, we can also recommend skills to work on between sessions.

    These sessions apply to siblings studying different material and in second grade or above. For siblings studying the exact same material, please refer to small group tutoring below.

    2:1 Tuition per child
    Packages 1.5 hours*/week Each Additional Session* in That Month
    Tuition Per Month** $225/child $50/child

    *85 minute session; **4 weeks/month

    In order to provide your child with the opportunity to show marked improvement, we strongly encourage a commitment of at least two sessions per week.

    All tuition payments are non-refundable.

    Customized Small Group Tutoring/Homeschool Groups

    Children enjoy and are motivated in the company of other children. They learn even more from each other’s questions and insights!

    You are welcome to form a small group of students studying the same subject and propose a class.

    Tuition per child
      1 Hour/Week* Each Additional Hour That Month*
    Tuition/Month* $200/student $50/student

    *50 minute session; 4 weeks/month; up to 4 students

    In order to provide your child with the opportunity to show marked improvement, we strongly encourage an initial commitment of two sessions per week.

    At any time, based on student interest, we may add students to any existing group/class. Groups/classes are limited to 4 students.

    Due to multiple students being involved, we cannot offer makeup classes. But we can definitely provide you with any materials that your child missed.

    All tuition payments are non-refundable. These rates do not apply to our early learners. Please inquire separately for younger children.

     

    Registration Fee

    An annual registration fee of $65 per student covers center usage from September to June.

    Refundable Deposit for Small Groups

    In order to make such small groups feasible, we ask for a refundable deposit at the time of registration.

    We ask for an email notice when withdrawing your child from any class. The notice must be delivered before the tuition payment for your last four classes is due and that will make the refund applicable to the tuition payment for your last four classes.  Your refundable deposit is returned to you in the form of a “discount” on your last tuition payment.

    Failure to give email notice before your last tuition payment will result in the forfeiture of your deposit.

    This helps us to ensure some continuity for the other children in our small groups and to accommodate all of our students to the best of our ability.

    Lesson Rescheduling Policy

    School Year

    The center follows the schedule for most holidays/longer breaks observed by SPS during the school year. During these breaks, tutoring is flexible according to each family’s plans.

    During the rest of the school year, we specially schedule a time just for your child. If you need to reschedule, please give us at least 24 hours written/email notice. We appreciate as much advanced notice as possible so that we may make the cancelled session time available to other students. Lessons missed without the notice cannot be rescheduled and will be charged at the regular rate.

    Make up lessons may only be scheduled within the 4 weeks following the missed lesson. Rescheduled sessions will be at a time other than your regularly scheduled sessions and based on tutor availability. Regular sessions/payments continue as initially scheduled.

    Due to the complicated logistics when multiple students are involved, group sessions of 2 or more may not be cancelled/rescheduled by students. The only exception may be if all the students in the group are siblings residing in the same household.

    Summer

    During the summer, we understand that everyone needs a vacation and we don’t want parents to be concerned about making up missed sessions. We just push the schedule forward.

    We very much appreciate as much advance notice as possible, so we can schedule other students during those times. However, we do require a minimum 24 hour notice for a missed lesson to be excused, otherwise it will charged at the regular rate.

    Due to the complicated logistics when multiple students are involved, group sessions of 2 or more may not be cancelled/rescheduled by students. The only exception may be if all the parents in a group can come to a consensus and let the instructor know in advance!

    Center Closure for Holidays

    Recognizing the importance of fun family time, Kids With An Edge will be closed for certain holidays and breaks in accordance with the Seattle Public School’s schedule. All tuition payments will be adjusted accordingly.

    Summer scheduling will definitely allow plenty of flexibility for sunny adventures.
