Policies and Payment


Group Lesson Rates:
2-4 person semi-private lessons: $30 an hour.
5 or more students: $25 an hour.

Private Lesson Rates:
I am no longer offering private lessons. Contact me for a list of my recommended private mentors if you really are looking for private lessons.

I ask that you pay for each month’s lessons at the start of each month. Payments can be made through Paypal or Venmo or Zelle. My name is Xinke Guo-Xue and my email is xinkeguoxue@gmail.com for all three payment methods.


For group lessons, if you must miss a lesson, there is no refund. I will, however, record all group lessons and upload them to a shared Dropbox folder, for you to review at your leisure, along with any problem sets and notes from class. I will provide the Dropbox link after each class separately.

If I must cancel a group lesson, the payment for that class will be carried over to the next month.

I am currently offering 30% off the second class if you take 2 classes with me at once. If you cannot make a class due to a schedule conflict, but want to self study from that class’s notes/problem sets/recordings, I will charge 40% of the classes cost:

Second class: 70% the cost
Self studying a class: 40% the cost.

Recordings will be sent by email after each class.

Missing 3 or more weeks class

If you must miss 3 or more consecutive weeks of class in a row, you should let me know beforehand. I will either not charge you for those weeks, or charge 40% if you want the recordings to the classes you missed, so you can catch up after you rejoin my classes. This happens mainly during the summer, but can also apply during the school year.
