How Independent Study Works At

We're always happy to field requests for certain projects and specific instructors. You can reach out to our individual instructors directly here, and we're also happy to talk you through the options; feel free to email us at

Once you've settled on a teacher, he or she will be in touch to chat about your needs and budget. The cost of private instruction varies by instructor. We accept credit cards and PayPal.

The instructor will track the time spent corresponding, reading your work and offering feedback on it. At the end of each month, we'll email an invoice and charge your credit card. (If you prefer to pay with a check or through PayPal, we ask that you pay in advance.)

You're always in control of the cost. For ongoing projects, a billing cap can help prevent any surprises. So please let your teacher know if you want to stick to, say, $150 a month or $360 total for a project.
