3. SERVICE REGULATIONS
1) ONLINE TUTORING. You may reschedule the online tutoring session at least 12 hours in advance free of charge, otherwise RESCHEDULE FEE of $5 will apply.

If your deadline includes exact time, please indicate your time zone. BY DEFAULT, TIME ZONE IS EASTERN STANDARD TIME (EST). For example, if you indicate the deadline of January 1, this means that the problems are to be solved by January 1, 11:59 pm EST. An example of an exact deadline is: January 1, 3 pm PST. If you are not sure what your time zone is, please check it here
- Once you place an order (that is, accept our cost estimate and pay the fees online), you cannot cancel it under any circumstances. Since we start working on your problems right after the money transfer confirmation has been received, cancellation is unjust as it would result in unrecoverable expenses.
- Minimum Problem Solving service fee is $10.
