Low Cost Tutorials

If you need help with course material in one of Blue Bear’s 11-week programs, you can take one hour of private tutoring at discounted rates, either two half-hours or one hour-long session. Tutorials are scheduled as available and only while your course is still meeting.

Tutoring sessions:
$20 each for 25 minutes (limit two per course)
$40 for 55 minutes (limit one per course)

Call to request scheduling. We’ll do our best to find a time and tutor for you. Please understand that you’ll have to pay for any late cancellation once a time is agreed upon since we have to pay the teacher. Tutorials are not available with Raz Kennedy, Peter Case, Shaun McGonegal and Libby Lavella.
