Pay-Per-Time vs Pre-Pay
NEW Samson Dubina TT Academy
For both private lessons and group classes, we offer both Pay-Per-Time and Pre-Pay options.  So which should you choose?
This payment is due on the day of the lesson.  We recommend this option because it gives you flexibility if you need to cancel or re-schedule.  Payment can be in the form of cash, check, credit card, or paypal.  All forms of payment are accepted equally and you don’t need to pay extra for using your credit card.
This option is cheaper but is non-refundable, non-transferrable, and non-reschedulable.  With this option, you need to have paid the final amount by the 28th of the previous month.  If you pay early (like on the 23rd of the previous month), you have flexibility to make changes until the 28th of the month.  In order to give you the lowest rate possible, we can no longer give refunds or transfer lessons or reschedule lessons, even for injury, relationship problem, illness, traffic jam, hospitalization, death in the family, extreme homework, lost keys, car problems, can’t find racket, forgot about the lesson, or any other reason.  We highly recommend that you have videos loaded to your youtube channel.  As an alternative to attending your lesson, we will give them normal students skype or facetime lessons for no additional charge.  Even if you don’t have a table at your house, we can review your videos with you live.  Also, if you have a friend or family member who wants to take your lesson, there is no additional cost of sending a substitute.
Coach Cancels
During the last 10 years of full-time coaching, I have only cancelled lessons about 5 days total during the last 10 years.  In the event that I cancel or another coach cancels a lesson, you will receive an immediate reimbursement via check or paypal refund.

Monthly E-Mail
Each month, I personally send an e-mail out to my students, here is my timeline:
by the 22nd of the month...
Samson will let you know the tentative dates available
by the 24th of the month...
You need to let me know...
1. Which private lessons you want
2. Which group classes you will be attending
3. Which payment method you prefer (pay-per-time or pre-pay)
by the 26th of the month...
I will send you a paypal payment link
by the 28th of the month...
The payment needs to be received by SDTTA
It may seem a bit strict, but we need to hold to it in order to keep our doors open.  We have around $24,000/month in expenses including staffing 4 people, equipment, facility rental, utilities, and dozens of other monthly costs.
If you are not currently on the e-mail list and would like to be added, please send me a personal e-mail.  Samson Dubina
