Tutoring, Education & Research Services
Our tutoring, education and research service is for when the commission structure of what we get paid to help you for by the Insurance Companies don’t work, like if you are asking for help on an employer plan, where we are not the agent.
We often discount these rates or do the research pro bono, if it’s of general interest and will help build our website. Just use the comments/ask a question feature on the relevant page of our website and we generally reply within 1 business day, no charge.

Why & When might a Research, Tutoring & Education Fee be appropriate?
Dennis Prager in the video above right or scroll down specifically discusses the example of a woman knowing upon walking into the local camera store that she plans to buy a camera online. Nevertheless, she takes up thirty minutes of the salesman’s time with questions about one camera versus another.
You are intentionally stealing time from an innocent salesperson who could be earning a commission from working with a different customer. Are cameras, TVs, stereos and other items more expensive at stores than they are online? YES. But the schnorrer might want to consider that the salesperson’s time, the opportunity to test products, touch them, and compare them is worth the extra money you pay in person. You get what you pay for. … we have obligations as consumers, not just rights.
Yes, being a schnorrer is not illegal. But it’s unethical, and un-Jewish. (Ask any rabbi from any denomination.)

Nor do we practice law or give legal advice.
We only do our “best efforts.” We are not attorney’s and do not purport to be able to look up every single thing that might be relevant to your situation. It’s only research, it’s up to you to verify all information.
Tutoring, Research and Education only, appear to be fine and legal.
