I can tell you what I charge for English tutoring. I am a full time teacher and don't charge for my students but in other situations have been hired. I generally get $25 per hour. Tutoring is a speciality, and in most cases, parents who have to get a tutor for their child will be willing to pay for it. Remember that it's a lot of work for you to be prepared and make arrangements, and you need to be compensated for your work. Good luck!
20-30 per hour.
$25.00 an hour?
In the 1990s (around '98), I got $25 per hour. So I'd say, with today's gas prices and the fact that it is 2 kids, you aren't out of line charging $50 per hour or more.
Good luck! :)
i know tutors that charge anywhere from 10-50 dollars an hour, my math tutor charges thirty dollars an hour and i see him once a week for an hour
When I tutored Math and English I charged 10-15 dollars an hour depending upon the situation. But, most of the time I got students who couldn't afford it, so I tutored them for free.
i think $50 or above. You are doing good for their education which parents care about the most. and it takes you a long drive for gas. If she really likes you and u seem to be nice and know not to overcharge u will come up with a good extimate. But i think $50 or above dont charge anything below 50
I have been a private math tutor and think that it is a great experience. Being that it is a 30-minute drive, gas does come into play. If I was in the situation, I would first see how willing the teens are to learning. If it comes easy, base your price on gas prices and if it is a greater challenge, add a little to gas prices.
well depending on how gas is where you live, and exactly how many miles you have to drive for her, then you should charge that and maybe something around $5 per hour for the actual tutoring (combined with you gas estimeate price)
i usually use an equation similar to this to figure it out:
amount of gas used plus amount you prefer to get charged an hour- you just have to figure out the gas price of the distance you travel.
if they are a super sweet family i will cut a lil deal which just knocks off a lil bit- like if i normally charge 40 an hour i will only charge them 35 or 30 per hour. just remember its a BUSINESS transaction. :O)
How much to charge? Good question. I went through the same thing in my area and here is how I made my determination. First, them coming to me or visa versa took care of the gas issue, Then I made some calls to local tutoring services in my area. Sylvan here for example costs 45.00 an hour with a 1-3 ratio teacher to students. So I broke it down from there. One child was 15.00, etc.
I hope this helps you wherever you are and your economic conditions there.
Private tutors are very expensive. It isn't out of line to charge at least $50 (for two kids) per hour.
I would say $50 a week, depending on how long you stay per day. Once the kid get the hang of it, you'll be more or less making sure they follow formulas. Keep it a max of 2 hours a day, 1 per kid or both at the same time. That way its basically the same as what they would do in school. Make it $75, you'll need that extra $25 for gas!
I think $30-$40 an hour because of the drive and the fact that there's two kids.
To be honest with you, it really depends on a couple of factors. If you are tutoring elementary/high school kids, I feel like parents will pay you more than if you were tutoring college students. Also, it depends on the area you will be tutoring in. If it's in a bigger city then you can offer higher rates since there will be more people who need your services (the old supply and demand theory!). If you'd be tutoring in a more affluent neighborhood, you could also charge more. I'd say start off around 30. If that doesn't work, you can always go lower! Raising your rates after awhile might not bode well for you though - you don't want to lose clients!
You must realise that as a private tutor, you can charge a substantial rate but you are restricted to specific area - smaller market of potential students. If you tutor online, the rate is lower but you can have more students. Think outside the box! Try online tutoring. Then you can have a worldwide market of potential students. Try sites like:
