FAQs About Our PDX Tutoring Services

The cost of tutoring depends on the service and modality. Typical rates range from $65 – $120 per hour. 

To learn more about what your specific tutoring plan would cost, check out our pricing page or give us a call.


We don’t have a central tutoring office, so in-person tutoring is typically conducted at the student’s home. In-person tutoring can also happen at a public meeting space such as a local library or cafe. Overall, not having an office means our in-person tutoring can be more affordable and more convenient for our students.


While in-person tutoring is limited to students located in or near Portland, OR, our online tutoring services are available to students across the U.S. Online tutoring is conducted via zoom and typically involves additional tools / resources such as online whiteboards and shareable documents.
