Tutoring Policy

Barbara Templeton MS

Tutoring Services-Educational Consultant-Learning Specialist

Please communicate with me via e-mail at breathingyoga@gmail.com Call if you need to cancel a session or you are running late. I like to provide a brief verbal synopsis of the session to parents when they pick up their children. If this is not possible you may e-mail me or call me for feedback.

My home classroom is located at 7 Hill Rd. in Redding or I meet with students at the library or in their homes. Feel free to come in with your child to check out the space. I also have a yoga room and swing set for breaks. Some parents like to stay for the first session. They usually sit in the living room, at the table on the back or side patios or play with a sibling on the swings. Mark Twain library and Caraluzzi’s Market are a few minutes from my home.

My Background and Program
I teach pre-K-high school all subjects, yoga, mindfulness, social, emotional regulation, emotional regulation  and executive function skills. I have an MS degree in Special Education and over 35 years experience working with typical and special needs kids. My background is highly behavioral and I use scientifically researched based instruction. I focus on high success oriented instruction, as many of the kids I work with are meeting frustration and failure everyday at school. I am currently accepting new students.  Clients are meeting with me 1 or 2 days a week for 1-2 hour time blocks. My rates are based on the amount of time per session and the number of times we meet each week. (I offer discounts for more time and frequency) I am also available to meet with teachers for conferences, team meetings or PPT’s. My hourly rate applies with no charge for travel to RES or JRMS.

Schedule and Cancellation Policies
A set weekly time works best. I do not send appointment reminders. Lesson times may be changed with at least 24 hours notice. A cancellation occurring less than 24 hours from your lesson time results in a charge for the missed lesson. You may make up the missed lesson within the month it occurs. Lessons cannot be transferred from one month to the next. If special circumstances occur, such as a death or illness of a family member or you become suddenly ill please let me know. If I need to change a lesson for any reason I am happy to reschedule your lesson for another day/time within the next month.

Payment terms
All lessons must be paid at the time they are taught by cash or check made out to “Barbara Templeton”. I do not extend refunds or credits.

Please arrive for your lesson on time. If you are early feel free to wait in the driveway or practice walking meditation outdoors. If you are late I regret that I cannot extend your time due to my schedule. Please call me if you are running late. Please do not request last minute (the day of) changes to your lesson time. Last minute changes rarely work due to my schedule. If you need to change your time please notify me 24 hours in advance.
