Some students don't want or need a comprehensive tutoring program for the SAT, ACT, or academic subjects, but they would benefit from occasional guidance, instruction, and review with me. You might benefit from Extra Help if you
Self-motivated students, student-athletes, homeschoolers, students on a budget - I've worked with all kinds of students who need extra support, and I'd love to help you out too!
Some of what we can discuss in Extra Help sessions include
For other subjects & standardized tests (e.g. Physics, the Praxis Series), please contact me to discuss.
Hours of Extra Help time are bought "a la carte" in advance; you then book times (minimum: 15 minutes; maximum: 90 minutes) at your own convenience. You do not have to book your times right after purchase; your purchased hours will never expire, so you can schedule sessions on demand!
Here's how the process works:
Here is a video explaining how to schedule time once you've purchased hours:
All meetings occur online through Skype (preferred) or Google Hangouts.
Not only will we interact by voice, but also I’ll be able to share my computer screen so that I can write on a “virtual blackboard” during the session. This audiovisual pairing will make our sessions feel like we’re in the same room.
After you book your time, I will email you to make sure all the technology is set up and answer any pre-session questions.
No matter your schedule or time zone, I guarantee we will find a meeting time that will work for you!
If you're not sure whether you should book Extra Help time or if you need more comprehensive tutoring, contact me here.
My full tutoring programs include more intensive planning and preparation for sessions since I am essentially designing a curriculum from the ground up for each student. Extra Help sessions are more student-directed, so they require less planning and preparation time from me outside of sessions. I can therefore charge a lower rate for Extra Help.
If it turns out you need more extensive tutoring, we might discuss upgrading you to a full tutoring program.
I do not offer refunds for any time spent in session. However, if you end up buying more hours than you need, I will refund any unused time.
If you'd like to know if Extra Help is right for you or acquaint me with your situation and needs, or if you have any other questions, contact me here.
I’m Rob, the founder of Reason Prep, creator of these videos, and your test prep tutor.
Also pictured is my beagle, Mr. Pibb. He didn’t help with the site that much, but maybe he’ll star in one of my videos one day.
I earned a BA in Chemistry (2006) and an MA in Science and Technology Studies (2009) from Cornell University. In 2010 I started tutoring SAT, ACT, math, chemistry, and writing full-time, and Reason Prep followed shortly after!
