1. Are virtual lessons just face-to-face discussions?
No. For sessions in which I introduce persuasive-writing techniques or offer college-application guidance, I created PowerPoint slides to better engage students and visually reinforce the material I cover.

2. Why do you offer the option of 'faceless' phone sessions, instead of insisting on Zoom, Skype or FaceTime?
In my experience, some teenagers are more relaxed this way. leading to more productive sessions. For meetings that don't require PowerPoint presentations, old-fashioned phone conversations lend themselves beautifully to discussing shared documents that we view simultaneously on our own screens.

3. Do I have to use your online booking service?

No. Feel free to call, text, WhatsApp or email me to set up an appointment.


4. What payment methods do you accept?

Credit card, PayPal, Venmo, Zelle, personal check or cash—paid before or at the start of the session. In the case of college-application-essay guidance other than "jump start," please call, text, WhatsApp or email me about payment terms (some of the work is completed on my own).
