Screening

Screening is mandatory for entry into my in person courses. On top of your name, age, city/state and contact information, I ask for one of the following:

Deposits


I require a small $100 per hour deposit for all appointments (up to $1000, excluding FMTY). This will of course come out of your total tuition; it is not a additional fee. My deposit options are both plentiful and discreet, so we'll always be able to find a method that suits your needs best. All of my payment processers are listed under a totally different and innocuous business name, email address and phone number so nothing related to "Gem DeMilo" or "Professor DeMilo" will ever show up in your payment history or on any statements. I do have a few options that do not have any paper trail at all, though admittedly, they require a few more steps. If you prefer to prepay in advance, please notify me before our meeting so we can make those arrangements.




Cancellations


Unfortunately, life happens to the best of us and sometimes we just can't attend to our commintments...even when we desperately want to. While deposits and prepayments are not refundable under most circumstances,* they are transferable in the event you cancel your appointment. In the event you must cancel, your deposit will be applied to one rescheduling made within 6 months of our originally scheduled course. Your deposit/prepayment can be applied to in person courses (Chicago based, touring or FMTY) as well as virtual courses. If you cancel your rescheduled course, your deposit/prepayment is forfeited and an additional cancellation fee will be requested if applicable. Appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours notice require a 50% cancellation fee. No call/no shows will require a 100% cancellation fee. This is applicable to all in person and virtual courses. *In the rare albiet possible event that I must cancel our appointment due to illness, personal emergency or tour cancellation your deposit will of course be refunded. You may also apply it to a future date and will automatically be upgraded to the next course at no additional charge (eg. a 2 hour course will be upgraded to a 3 hour course upon rescheduling).





Hygiene & Health

While it may go without saying, it's always best to lay expectations out in advance to avoid confusion
