Inkwell provides online tutoring in English, reading, writing instruction, and test prep. Services are primarily offered by semester on a subscription plan, but between semesters or in addition to a subscription, sessions can also be scheduled à la carte. All sessions, typically 50 minutes long, are conducted via videoconferencing. Master Teacher-level instruction is delivered by a highly experienced subject-matter expert. Teacher-level instruction is delivered by a well qualified and seasoned instructor.
À La Carte Plan
À la carte lessons are provided to a single student with no option to share lessons with another student. They do not require an initial interview, an individualized learning plan, or a long-term commitment. Prior to the beginning of a new semester, students may convert to a subscription plan. Tuition is paid monthly in advance of lessons, and clients are required to have a credit card on file for automatic payment of tuition.
À la Carte Pricing
Sessions à la carte are $60 with a teacher and $85 with a master teacher.
Both individual (1:1) and shared (2:1) subscription plans require separately priced diagnostic testing and an initial interview to determine a student’s skill level, to pair the student with an appropriate teacher, and to develop an individualized learning plan. Tuition can be paid in a lump sum before the semester begins or be scheduled in monthly installments that include a modest finance charge. Clients are required to have a credit card on file for automatic payment of tuition in advance of services.

Individual Sessions (1:1)
Individual sessions are private tutoring lessons offered to a single student. Overseen by a primary teacher, they are highly customizable with an individualized learning plan (ILP).
Shared Sessions (1:2)
Shared sessions are tutoring lessons offered to two students who are studying the same subject together. They are tailored to the course of study that both families agree to in the learning plan (ILP). The advantages of shared sessions are that students have the encouragement of study buddies and that parents have a cost break. Students must arrange for their own partners to share sessions, and once shared sessions are arranged, both students must follow the same schedule of attendance.
In addition to the costs above, there are charges for curriculum materials used to instruct students. A $25 fee per diagnostic test is required for each of the subjects included in a student’s Individualized Learning Plan (limit of 2 subjects). The required interview costs $100 and includes . . .
- an initial interview with Inkwell team members
- the processing of documents and diagnostic assessments
- a written report on each student
- an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP)
