Tutoring charge?

How much should I charge as a tutor if Iím just doing homework help and much should I charge if Iím offering remedial/supplemental instruction in a specific area like reading?

Iíve been a classroom teacher for about 10 years and I have a Reading Specialist credential.

That is hard to answer because the amount differs greatly depending on the area and age group.

Also, in my district it is against policy to tutor your own students for money.

I suggest you find out the going rate in your area.

You could look on tutoring websites and type in your zipcode to see what others are charging in your area.

Sylvan learning by me costs approximately $49.00 per hour. The experiences I had with Sylvan were really good and I thought they were a huge benefit.

I also think it depends on the area and what you're able to tutor in. I've tried to look into tutoring and it's just a very saturated market in my area, so there is no real way to get clients. Like the pp, we're not allowed to charge parents of our students for tutoring. There are some companies you can work for, but they pay ridiculously low wages.

This year my school offered tutoring positions through a grant. I'm making $46 per hour, but I have a small group, not 1:1. If you think you can be successful on your own in your area, I'd start with a higher rate than you think and see if you can get clients that way. You never know until you try, and you don't want to end up making way less than you could have. If you're not getting any bites with your advertised rate, then you can try lowering it.

Over 5 years ago I was making $40 an hour tutoring in a near Chicago suburb. Now I live in a suburb much farther out, and the going rate is half that price.

It depends on the level- high school teachers make considerably more.

I would check at your local schools to see what tutors charge. That would probably be your best bet.

I charge $40 per hour, but I have friends who charge $50. This is for elementary. Middle and High school would be at least $75. It definitely depends on the area that you live in.

Tutors get paid well in my area. They can make $75-$95 an hour. Rates vary greatly depending on where you live.
