    Click here for information on my Chemistry tutoring offers.

    If you drag along a couple of friends I can make it $30 for two hours. Is that reasonable?

    Talking Re: Coaching rates?

    I'm doing $20-$25 and the students I have are very happy. Its more 1-to-1 and helps the student with their problem rather than stacks of notes or group info.

    Any one up for it? English, Maths, Economics and Business Studies.

    Re: Coaching rates?

    hmm Depends on how much the tutor does.. for private tutoring the tutor should be doing atleast half an hour of work utside for each hour of contact. so I think 30 will be fair. If the tutor doesn't do much then 20ish. Add some for eastern suburbs and the north, take some away for the west

    Re: Coaching rates?

    i find it weird people justifying themselves being paid 15-20 for private tutoring by reason that they are first year uni with no experience. it's selling yourself short! i think as long as your pretty able with what your teaching you should charge at the bare minimum 30 and upwards especially if you need to spend a fair bit of time travelling or drive. parents and kids out there are quite prepared to pay that kind of money especially since the demand for tutors is pretty high.

    You seem to have misunderstood me, and I don't quite get what you are saying here either. I didn't say anything about one should charge cheaper rates if one is willing to commute. rather I am just saying that the price that could and should be charged varies with the suburb which the session is held, and that's purely because the prices are that way, not trying to rip off richer people or anything

    Re: Coaching rates?

    i was saying how if we ourselves are willing to commute, then the corresponding rate should be higher due to time/effort involved.

    also i don't see it as 'ripping off richer people'. i see it as meaning the sydney west tutors getting ripped off. in all fairness, somebody living in bondi should have the same rate as somebody tutoring out in blacktown given all other things equal.

    then of course we can go to the statistics which suggest northern/eastern suburbs students score more highly than their western/southern counterparts. but of course there are some smart cookies out here!

    Re: Coaching rates?

    I think it really depends on your ability to teach the stuff. Who cares if someone got 98 in a subject if they can't teach it - particularly if you are teaching it to a students that is having particular difficulty with the material (imo you need an education degree to tackle that properly).

    I did tutoring for 3 years (stopped this year) and only charged up to 22$ per hour.
    I think what made me a good tutor is that I had to work way harder than the average person to get my marks in school (and now in Uni) so I have a good understanding of what it is exactly that people are getting stuck on, then suggest strategies to help. Most of my students improved, though it would be arrogant to not view their motivation as an important factor in that.

    depends whether the 30/hr is a one-on-one or a group rate though.
    Like what was also mentioned - qualification, expertise and experience are all important factors when determining rates.

    true, tutoring colleges may charge only about 20/hr for qualitied teachers - but is that on one-on-one or group? that would determine how much personal time you get in that hour.

    Re: Coaching rates?

    It also depends on what you are doing at Uni! It's all well and good if you got top grades in English at school, but if you are not doing it at uni then of course you are going to become a bit rusty on it. I also agree with the people that believe that it comes down to the individual. I mean us people who are actually studying to become high school teachers at uni are learning what the best ways to teach are and how to get results, that, coupled with a great UAI (not all people that go into uni only get in the 80's), should definately make you a more valuable tutor.

    Re: Coaching rates?

    I am in year 12 and am going to start tutorring year 7 and 8 children in maths, english and science, I have a tutorring certificate from tafe, I have no problem negotiating the price, but I think $35 an hour would be fine, but I am just curious about how often I should see them and how long I should make the sessions, because I do have a HSC

    Some my friends study in groups. They say the price depends on number of students in group.

    Group: $30/hr give or take seems fair. I'm not sure about Private Tutoring because I've never had one.

    If you're getting coached for mathematics once a week, that's approximately $3250 per year...
