Frequently Asked Questions 1 of 3
Do you offer a free trial lesson or free consultation?
I offer a free five minute chat over the phone or google hangout . I do not offer free in-person consultations and do not offer free lessons. If for any reason you are disappointed with your first tutoring session, I will offer you a refund. I can also use part of our tutoring time to sit down with parents and discuss the best plan of action for a student.
How much will my child’s score increase?
There are multiple unpredictable factor that determine the score of your student. I can help students unleash their learning potential, but students have to make an effort and work really hard. I am not a miracle worker, but I am good at teaching students who want to learn and who work diligently. Realize that the more work and tutoring a student does, the more he or she will likely improve. Unfortunately other factors contribute as well– the intellectual capacity of a student, how long a student studies, nutritional and emotional challenges affect the way a student thinks. This will most likely mean that the SAT/ACT may be more challenging for one student than another. I expect students to put in five hours of time doing homework each week. If students complete most all of the homework I give them, take a minimum of 20 hours of tutoring, and are healthy on the test day. I’ve seen students improve by a modest 50 points, and others by over 200 points, and on the ACT anywhere from 1 point to five points with only a couple months of tutoring.
Frequently Asked Questions 2 of 3
How do I pay for lessons?
We invoice via Venmo for online students and accept check payments for in person clients. By request, we can invoice in advance for multiple lessons. All online lessons must be paid 24 hours in advance. Failure to pay lessons 24 hours in advance will open your reserved lesson times up to rescheduling. All in person or last minute lessons must be paid no later than the start of the lesson.
What is your Cancellation Policy:
To avoid late cancellation fees, any scheduled tutoring sessions should be cancelled or rescheduled at least 24 hours in advance, via email or by calling me. I prefer email, as I like to have things in writing in case of any discrepancies– so please email me or text me if you’re canceling several days in advance.
Cancellations will be assessed late cancellation fees as follows, due immediately:
Full charge for lesson is due
My tutoring schedule is often booked, and a cancelled lesson with appropriate notice signifies I can accomodate another paying client. A last minute cancellation, for me, is lost income. I value my clients time so I request the same.
Can I get a discount?
If you’re set on private tutoring, the best way to save money is to find a friend for a group class.
Frequently Asked Questions 3 of 3
Should my child take the ACT, the SAT, or both?
I suggest that ALL students take a practice ACT and practice SAT before answering this question, and check out the online concordance table of scores. If both tests are fairly similar in percentile for a student, I recommend focusing on the SAT.
How many lessons are necessary?
Each student is different and needs an individualized learning program. Please realize that student effort is a big factor in success. If there is little effort on the students part, little can be done.
The “typical” round of ISEE, SSAT, GRE, ACT or SAT prep (for one test, all sections) is about 12-20 two-hour lessons (3-6 months, 1x week)– that’s about how long it takes to teach every “rule” once over for students who start with a minimum score in about the 70th percentile or above. Lower scoring students may need far more prep, and higher scoring students less.
amazing professor. Took time out of his way and went the extra mile to help me more with my major . his teaching methods make math look simple and care for his students is phenomenal.

I was in a statistics course with Professor Christian Jarquin and throughout the semester he was extremely motivational and an incredible teacher. His teaching methods within the classroom are very comprehensive and although he is very thorough, he also provides many resources for further assistance with the material. His assignments are also justified and reasonable, and contributed a lot to my ultimate understanding of statistics.
He will answer all of your questions without judgement, and will always ensure that you are secure with the material.
Before I start off, let me just say this is probably my favorite class+teacher at Miami Dade College. I have to admit, I never really was good at math. However, the tables turned when I took a statistics class taught by Cristian. He's unlike any teacher I've ever had. To start off, he teaches in a real world way. Not just blatantly reading material, formulas, and so on. He makes his class interesting and engaging. His real life examples you give you an understanding of math that you've never had before. He makes it easy to understand for everyone. Furthermore, he genuinely cares about his students. He gives reasonable work, will extend something for you if you need, and so forth. He gives many opportunities for you to understand the material and succeed in the class. I was very pleased with him and after seeing his teaching skills I know he's an excellent tutor and anyone should choose him for their struggles.
Clear, concise, and very knowledgeable. Christian has helped my 9th grader understand Algebra II. He has been very courteous and professional. He helps unravel the complicated formulas and makes my son feel intelligent and capable. We never feel rushed during the sessions. I love that he's always asking my son to explain what he's doing because that helps him remember. My son's grades have improved as have his confidence and attitude. Christian is a great teacher. I highly recommend his services.
I am one of the people who is struggling with math for the most part, but your love towards the subject has the power of inspiring people to learn with ease. Not only that but you have the ability to teach a lot of material in a limited time in a way that is easily absorbed by students. I learned more math in this class for 12 weeks than in my whole high school career. I liked the way you teach with examples, encourage us to ask questions and are always ready to help. You bring out confidence which helps me pass each exam without the feelings of anxiety or fear. Thank you for everything, keep inspiring students! " Todor
