Think it varies around the country, but round here (home counties) it's around £25 an hour. Could be more for some.

I charge £25 per hour in SE London, but that's for GCSE and A level. So probably a bit less for Year 8. Although I haven't put my rates up for 3 years, so maybe not...

Min of £30 for A level, I would say £25 for younger ones. Think what you pay your hairdresser/dentist/etc. My window cleaner charges £15 and is done in under 20 mins, so thats £45 an hour.

£25/hr for A level

Music teachers charge an average of £30 per hour in London, slightly less elsewhere. For A level Maths tuition I think £30/35 is reasonable, especially if you travel to the pupil.

£25/hr here smile
Travel extra, presumably, or out of pocket costs like car parking <random>

£20 an hour plus 60p per mile.

Seriously, anyone charging less than £25 or £30 for A level is undercharging. No doubt they will come back and say they do it for love/are happy to help etc. etc. I'm surprised, actually, as I would expect tutors in London to charge over £30,

thank you everyone, this is really useful as i think i was going to seriously undercharge by the sounds of it!

GCSE and A level maths tutors in London known to charge £40+.
My son who did his maths A level last year is tutoring a year 9 and is undercharging at £15 in order to get the experience. Any more business that comes his way he will charge £20 (still half of what an experienced tutor costs).

I charge £20 an hour for primary work in the Midlands - considering increasing it slightly since the cost of petrol's got berluddy brutal.
