Thereafter we will submit a learning plan and a rate quote specific for the student, ranging from ~$40<->~$125/hour. There is no obligation on the part of the student/parent to continue service after the first free session.
The most intensive learning plans require substantial prep-work for the tutor outside of teaching sessions, resulting in higher rates (e.g. individually tailored SAT/GRE prep). Less intensive, online assistance with homework and review of school materials/notes starts at ~$40/hour.
