    What is typical tutoring $ in your area? All of the teachers at my school charge the same and since its the only place I have tutored, i thought it was the norm. After talking to some other friends, they think its outrageous.

    So, if you tutor, or know what tutors by you make, please post here.
    Thanks

    When I stopped 4 years ago, I charged $60 per hour to tutor high school math in my own home.

    I was the cheapest tutor I knew. Even back then, most were far closer to $100.

    BUT... I'm in a suburb of NYC. Just about EVERYTHING here is incredibly expensive. It really is a local matter.

    I currently charge $15/hour. I could go higher, and as I gain more teaching experience I will. When determining my rates, I looked at Craigslist and my local newspaper to see what people were charging. I am definitely on the low end, but that's fine by me. I've seen people charge as much as $50, so, really, it varies.

    All of the local schools offer free after school tutoring. I believe they use college student volunteers who are only paid a few dollars an hour. That's the problem with living near a university that's well known for its education program and real life experience. (or the benefit for the people who live in this area)

    I charge nothing to tutor. Families of current and former students can't afford it, so I have certain hours after school for anyone to drop in and get help on anything. We have quite a number of colleges in the area, so tutoring can be more affordable here. Usually between $20-$40/hour.

    The only tutoring available in our area is through the school, and it's $22.50 an hour.

    We're in a high-poverty area, so the parents cannot afford it on their own. We don't have any nearby universities or any companies that offer tutoring.

    My husband gives music lessons for $20 an hour, and many of his students have to take the $10 half hour lessons because they can't afford $20 a week. In the "big city", the same lessons go for between $50 & $75 an hour.

    I currently don't tutor, but if I do this summer I will ask for $25 an hour...I'd even barter for work on my car or something similar! :)
