Sentence Center’s One-to-One / Test Prep Tutoring Policies

For our Class Policies, click here.

Rescheduling Policy
If you need to make changes to an individual session, please contact us at least three days in advance. We will do our best to reschedule your session. However, without this three days prior notice, you will be charged for the full amount of the session.


Refund / Cancellation Policy
Before enrolling please make sure that your child can attend all, if not most, of our sessions.  We do, however, understand that scheduling conflicts may arise and priorities may change. If you wish to cancel your enrollment, you may request a refund for your tuition.

  • To cover credit card processing costs and opportunity costs to fill up a tutoring spot, we will deduct a cancellation fee (20% of unused tuition) from your refund.
  • After we send out your refund check, we will close your account with us. This will preclude future enrollment.


Tuition Credit Policy
Instead of requesting a refund, you may request a credit towards future sessions.

  • All credit requests must me made at at least three days in advance.
  • Tuition credits will expire 6 months after the date of the request.


Test Prep Results

Please keep in mind that a standardized test (SAT, ACT, SSAT, ISEE)  is a cumulative test of all that a student has learned throughout elementary, middle and/or high school. Though Sentence Center will do its best to teach test taking strategies and provide practice exercises, much of how a student performs will depend on what he/she has already learned.  Thus, we do not guarantee any scores or score increases. What we can assure, through constant practice and focused tutelage, is that your child will be more confident, familiar, and strategic when they take a standardized test.
