Private Instruction  

We offer one-on-one tutoring sessions in the areas of English as a Second Language (ESL), Computers, Foreign Languages, Test Preparation, and Writing. We may also be able to accommodate other areas. Also, students may choose the time and day of the week, Monday through Friday, or Saturday morning.

To request private instruction, please fill out this form: Private Instruction Request Form

While it does take some time to find instructors who are available, please contact us [bacep@psbma.org] if it has been two weeks since filling out the form.

I. Areas of Tutoring:

English as a Second Language (ESL): In our individual tutoring sessions, E.S.L. instructors are available one-on-one to work with students on all skill areas. Tuition: $40 per hour.

Computers and Technology: In our individual tutoring sessions, Mac and PC computer instructors are available to work with students one-on-one, on anything from basic word processing, to setting up a blog, to using LinkedIn to find employment opportunities. Please note: if you want daytime computer tutoring, you may need to bring your computer (or tablet) with you as we do not usually have access to computer labs during the day. Tuition: $50 per hour.

II. Important Policies about Private Instruction:

An instructor will be assigned to you by a program coordinator once you have officially registered and paid for your sessions. Please come prepared with questions, your materials, and areas of study that you would like to work on with your instructor.

A program coordinator will determine a tutoring schedule with you and your tutor. If you need to make a change, please contact the program coordinator or the registration office immediately at 617­-730­-2700, ext. 0.

You will be assigned to a location by a program coordinator. Possible tutoring locations are as follows: Classroom or lab at Brookline High School (115 Greenough Street, Brookline); Classroom or lab at the Unified Arts Building (46 Tappan Street, Brookline); or Classroom at Brookline Public Library, Brookline Village. Please contact your program coordinator or the office if you need directions or further information.

If you need to cancel or change the time of a tutoring session, two business days (48 hours) advance notice is required (Monday through Friday). Please contact the office at 617-­730­-2700, ext. 0, and let the office staff know the name of your instructor. Without advance notice, all payment for missed sessions will be forfeited. All rescheduled sessions must take place within the same term.

Additional Sessions
If you would like to continue working with your instructor and wish to schedule additional private sessions, please contact your program coordinator or the office at 617­-730-­2700, ext. 0.
