Frequently Asked Questions

What makes
The Modern Minerva different from other tutoring services?

Large tutoring companies and small, independent tutors each offer benefits. I strongly believe that The Modern Minerva offers the best of both worlds! By that, I mean that I have the business background to offer you a professional and consistent customer service experience, like a large company, combined  with the personal attention and flexibility of an independent tutor. 


If you want reliable, professional service with a personal touch, you'll find it here!

I'm not in school right now. Can you help me?

Absolutely! While most of the clients I work with are taking classes, I'm happy to work with anyone at any stage in their writing development -- especially people who just want to improve on their own!

I'm not even sure what kind of help I need!

That's ok! Most people aren't. Before beginning any tutoring program, I work with you over the phone, via video chat, or in person to discuss your goals and diagnose your current writing skills. In fact, I consider this step so important that I offer this session free to all of my clients!

Do my lesson packages expire? How soon should I use them?

Before purchasing a lesson package, I encourage you to talk to me about setting a study plan that you can stick with. Lesson packages expire six (6) months after purchase, which should give you more than enough time to use the lessons you've bought. 

The best way to improve is to have lessons regularly, and I'm happy to set up recurring lessons for you at whatever frequency you'd like -- a couple of times per week, once per week, every other week, once a month, etc. You set the schedule!
