Well, I took a big pay cut to work in the system in which I am working, but I love it here. I do need to supplement my pay, so I've been thinking of becoming a private tutor. I don't plan on going to the houses of my students or having them come to mine. Instead, I will meet at a public place like a public library. I'm also going to stick to tutoring grades 1-5. I won't have to worry about seeing students from my school because they cannot afford the costs of a private tutor and are considered low income. 1. I'm not sure how much to charge a lower middle class family, which is what the majority of families in my area are. Some of the teachers at my school charge anywhere from 25-50 (50 is with a master's degree) dollars an hour. I was thinking of charging 20 dollars an hour, due to the restrictions I have. Is that too low? Should I charge 25 and see if there are any biters? I'm also only looking to take on 1-3 students. Right now, I've taught for four years. I'm certified for early childhood (k-5). I am also in the last year of my Master's in Reading and Literacy. 2. Also, how should I go about doing this? Should I put flyers out in my community? Should I put an ad out on Craigslist? 3. Can I tutor in places like the public library? Would restaurants like McDonald's or the such work also? Do libraries usually charge you to tutor there? Any suggestions?
