Unfortunately, a variety of factors are to blame for teacher pay. It is not "how you see yourself," it is more "how much taxes are collected, and what kind of education budget per child" there is in your state.

The majority of people in America make lower than "middle class/professional worker" pay. Sad to say, the people you work for are not "average." What you ask for tutoring, is up to you, but that fact seems to be that there are more people looking for jobs, than jobs available (in some places, this includes teachers) so all they have to say when you ask for $75. per hour, is, "I know someone who will do the same job for $10.00 per hour."
