I'm being quoted £60 for 1.5 hours for FM for GCSE (he's taking GCSEs summer 2017).

It works out at £40 an hour but the tutor apparently tutors in 1.5 hour blocks.

Is this similar to what you pay if you pay for tutoring?

Thanks

We are in Yorkshire - paid £25 per hour + travelling (which was about £3).

I'm in the north and I expected the price I'd been quoted to be similar to London prices.

You're likely to have to pay a premium for further maths tuition because not many teachers have taught it.

GCSE FM is pretty much A level Core 1.So you should be charged at A level rates

There's overlap with C1, but they're not the same, you definitely want someone familiar with the course.

Thank-you - useful to know - yes i've checked the tutor is familiar with currículum but also asked around and prices here seem to be between £30 - £35 / hr

Two years ago when I was tutoring I would have charged you £45 for 90 minutes, plus another £15 if you wanted me to come to you. South east, not London.

Look at MyTutorWeb. It's an online service that matches students with university students, and quite a lot do further maths. Between £20 -25 per hour. You do need decent broadband speed though as it's like a Skype service.
