Curvebreakers Club Membership is a monthly subscription service that affords students a recurring set number of hours each month. Club hours cannot be rolled over to the next month or saved, and therefore club hours not used by the end of the month will be forfeited. By agreeing to participate in the Club, members’ credit cards on file are automatically charged at the beginning of the month, replenishing tutor hours available. Club members can signup for additional tutoring hours at the end of the month $80/hr. Additional tutoring hours completed will be automatically charged to the credit card on file at the end of the month. Club members receive two (2) free practice exams with their Club membership. The fee for all additional exams with diagnostic report is $65/exam.
Additional rules and restrictions may apply. Additional course material fees may apply. Club Membership may be canceled five (5) business days before the next billing cycle.
A learning team is formed and organized by the customer. A group of four (4) students is required to form a team. The maximum size of a team that can meet in person in the Garden City office is eight (8) students to remain within the current NYS social distance requirements. Virtual-only teams may include up to 15 students. Curvebreakers reserves the right to move any in-office team sessions online at any time. Students attending in person will be asked a series of questions and will be subjected to a scanned temperature check before entering the classroom. A team’s term runs concurrent with the school semester: not a full school year and not a set number of hours. There is no refund or pro-rating for missed sessions. Any sessions missed by one or several students can not be rescheduled.
The enrollment period for each team is one (1) week. Team members have until the end of the enrollment period to complete their enrollment forms and make payment in full. If any team member does not pay in full by the end of the enrollment period, the price per person may increase to reflect the number of paid participants. Teams will not begin sessions until enrollments and payments by all team members is completed.
Additional rules and restrictions may apply.
