Hey! I was recently approached by a few families asking if I would tutor their children over the summer. Of course I jumped at the chance to make a few extra dollars but could not give them a price! I find it so uncomfortable telling them a dollar amount. A few teachers I talked to at my school say they charge $50 an hour. I honestly do not think I can ask for that amount. So, I was going to tell them one hour a day two times a week ..total price $70/$75. What do you think? too high? What do you charge?
My husband ran into the same problem. He tutors for free (county expense...they pay him $18 an hour) for students who can't afford tutoring...but for a one-on-one session at their home it's $35. This is considered an average price in our area - WV.
I charge $30 after school and I have one student whose house I go to and charge $40. My summer tutoring schedule is just starting to fill up. I have 4 sessions on Tuesdays, one so far on Thursdays, at least through June. There are 4 or 5 other kids who may sign up. That should do it.
