WordWielder Policies

Tuition for 2020-21

Tuition for classes is $15/class day (four students constitutes a class). Individual tutoring is $30/hr. Private classes (2-3 students) are $30 per student. Six-week summer sessions are $120. There is a nonrefundable deposit which will be applied to class registration. Deposit will be refunded if class is cancelled. Tuition for classes is payable in advance on a monthly basis at the beginning of each month, and is due in full regardless of student’s attendance. This is because either time or a seat is being reserved for your student, which another cannot fill in his or her absence. Parents will not be charged for observed holidays noted on syllabus, and credit toward a future class will be given if I must miss a class day. I will follow the school schedule for the West Linn-Wilsonville School District in Oregon.


Except for summer sessions, please keep in mind that you are committing your student to attend a year’s worth of classes. Absences are to be expected due to illness or other unforeseen circumstances. However, your student is expected to attend each class, in order to receive the maximum benefit from instruction. No refunds for payment will be given for withdrawals.

Notice of publication

Parents of students give permission for use of student’s work, and photos taken in class (without identification), for promotional purposes and to advance my certification level with IEW. No students will be identified in photos or by full name on writing samples. Any objection to this policy must be provided in writing. Class recordings are reserved for student/parent instructional use only, and are not to be redistributed.

Statement of Agreement

Enrollment in and payment for a class indicates you have read, understood, and agree to the aforementioned policies.
