Mike Bibby: Policy 2015 - 2017

Recurring Lessons and Appointments are scheduled regularly at the same time every week, at least once a week, for at least two months.

Payment can be made by cash or check.
Lessons can be paid for monthly in advance, or weekly.

Please respect the time I've set aside for you each week and pay for missed lessons if a "makeup lesson" cannot be scheduled.
"Makeup lessons" can be scheduled a week before or after the lesson being made up; email me for availability.

Please give me between 14 days and 48 hours notice on all recurring scheduling. I'll do the same for you. The lesson start and end time, as well as the length of the lesson, will vary by less than 5 minutes. (Please don't arrive more than 5 minutes early or expect to stay 5 minutes late.)


Recurring scheduling rates
$30 for 30 minutes
*$40 for 45 minutes - Chicago students only*
$50 for 60 minutes

Regular scheduling rate (non-recurring, short term, Fri-Sun)
