For private instruction I offer lessons either at my home or yours.
1 hr lessons: $35
multi-hour lessons: negotiable.
I prefer at least a full hour lesson as this allows for enough time to review material from past lessons and introduce new materials, however if there is an issue with payment I am open the barter system.
