A-level maths tuition

Discussion in 'Mathematics' started by atics, Apr 2, 2011.

  1. Quick question: what's the going rate for A-level maths tuition?
    I'm based in the Midlands if that has any bearing on it.
    Many thanks.

    I used to charge 30-50 quid per hour, but I hated tutoring so priced myself high.
  3. After a stint I will only do it from home and at £25 an hour on clearly defined time slots.
    I found charging £30 worked out a bad deal when I was driving for x minutes, waiting outside the house for y minutes and spending £z in petrol. Sometimes I was making aout £12 an hour after the travel and expenses
    Happy for for people to come to my office for £25 as I can do my own thing until they are here and it means I need to keep the office tidy all the time.
  4. £30-£35 is reasonable. You may have less travelling to do in the Midlands. ALevel Maths Tutors are difficult to find, so you may be able to charge more.

    £35 to £40 an hour, at student's home - possible deals if at my home, or for longer lessons

    Given the price of petrol...let them come to you.
    Ask a 'lower' rate of not less than 30 quid an hour.
    I found that helped enormously in my UK giving tuition days.
    If they are late then have a book to read.
    Personally I got fruit juice in for the students. All very civilised.
