Lessons are year-round and continue throughout the summer break from June-August. During the school year lessons must be scheduled weekly on the same day/time for consistency and to reserve your time slot with your teacher. Summer lessons may be given at different times/days from those given during the school year subject to teacher availability. For extended travel absences in the summer, students may take up to four weeks off tuition-free.
For in-home lessons 30 min lessons are available as long as two or more students will be taking back-to-back lessons in the same household. We have a 45-minute minimum per household visit. Because our lessons are in-home, this is our only means of ensuring that our teachers are teaching more than they’re driving. That said, our teachers are experts at keeping lessons well-paced, diverse, and fun, and our students generally do just fine with the time frame.
