**Option 3 is offered for your convenience. However, since PayPal charges me a fee of 2.9% plus $0.30 for each credit-card payment, I will add a corresponding charge to your invoice.

$40 per hour for one student or $48 per hour for two students, payable at or in advance of the appointment. Appointments that last longer than an hour are charged according to the actual tutoring time; for example, a one-student appointment that runs for an hour and forty-five minutes will cost $70.
