This is an interesting thread. We don't currently have a limit, except that
we discourage back-to-back appointments for the same course with the same
Tutor. I don't believe I would ever revoke a student's privilege to
Tutoring based on misuse of the service. If they begin not showing up for
scheduled appointments, I cancel the series and email the student that they
are welcome to reschedule if needed. We've not had disciplinary issues that
would warrant dismissal from our Tutoring space.

However, we do try to keep all of our appointments under 45 minutes.
Customer Service Assistants and Managers gently remind Tutors and Clients
when they've reached 45 minutes for several reasons:

   1. We try to maintain a fluid current of traffic in Walk-In
   2. Clients often get more frustrated or are less engaged after 45 minutes
   3. In the past, Tutors felt time was not spent productively because
   students would come in and hold up a Tutor all night, almost as a homework
   buddy

Do you have similar limits in your centers? How do you bolster clients
reception of these limits?

*Thank you,*
Michael
