MIL is a tutor and charges £30 an hour.

Monkendrunky Thu 29-Sep-16 15:37:10

Primary £25 and hour, £20 if block booked

WellTidy Thu 29-Sep-16 15:38:03

I pay £20 for half an hour. Primary.

SuperMoonIsKeepingMeUpToo Thu 29-Sep-16 15:39:16

£30 an hour is what I charge too. A friend charges £40 - people pay it!

Toomanycats99 Thu 29-Sep-16 15:39:35

£33 per hour 11 plus just outside London

Depends on your location. I charge £25 an hour for GCSE but I am aware that I should charge more (going rate is around £27/28 an hour locally). If I was in London, I would probably be charging £30-35 per hour (this seems to be the "going rate" there).

We pay £45/hour for our 8 year old. We're in Blackheath, South London.

£23 per hour here in the North West.

Why is everything so expensive up in that there London?!

Totally location based. Where I was working most recently I charged £20 for primary to GCSE and £30 for A level. Those rates are going up now we're in a more affluent area.

Welshrainbow Thu 29-Sep-16 15:57:58

For GCSE I charge £30 so would expect primary to be around £25 but that's in Yorkshire and would guess if you are London based 35/40 might not be so bad.

That's gcse btw

Sellers market - a qualified subject teacher £30+ per hour. Less if not qualified.

So far, the only thing we've used a tutor for is to help bridge the gap between GCSE and A-level Maths in the summer before Y12. Qualified secondary school Maths teacher. Near London (inside the M25). We paid £40 per hour.

bringbacksideburns Thu 29-Sep-16 16:04:01

He's from the Bramhall area, qualified Maths teacher working in a school.

£45 for an 8 year old child. Wow. So expensive!

TheWoollybacksWife Thu 29-Sep-16 16:06:15

£35 for an hour and a half GCSE tuition when paid in a block of four sessions. East Midlands. Worth every penny for the look of joy on her face on results day.

I charge £17 for 45 minutes tutoring for upper KS2 (not 11+, general maths). I'm in Lewisham, South London (10 minutes from Blackheath).

Chikara Thu 29-Sep-16 22:29:47

£40 - £45 - London.

Reasonable for someone good. (Remember they have to travel, prepare, supply materials etc)

AndNowItsSeven Thu 29-Sep-16 22:30:34

£20 for 90 minutes both primary and secondary.

AndNowItsSeven Thu 29-Sep-16 22:31:16

Am in North West.

PurpleDaisies Thu 29-Sep-16 22:31:24

That's remarkably cheap seven. Where in the country are you?

PurpleDaisies Thu 29-Sep-16 22:32:18

Cross post there! Is that an experienced tutor/qualified teacher?

AndNowItsSeven Thu 29-Sep-16 22:33:14

Yeah I do think I am maybe paying less than her other students parents.

AndNowItsSeven Thu 29-Sep-16 22:34:15

Yes she is a experienced primary teacher with a masters in maths.

I generally charge £25ph for gcse and £30 for a level. I reduce this by £5ph if It's a student taught by another teacher in my school as it requires less prep.
