The other day, I went to an interview at a tuition centre, which works out of a local academy. The centre wanted a science teacher to deliver up to five lessons on Saturdays to 'small groups' of students. My interviewer asked me what I would expect as an hourly rate. When I told him at least £30, he did a double take, saying that he paid his teachers between £10 and £15, and bid me good day! I wonder what others have experienced with tuition centres.
