I did a one-off day of supply at a friend's school today and one of the kids asked me if I'd tutor her at home. I'm considering it - but how much would I charge? It's GCSE level English, if that makes any difference.

There are lots of agencies on,ine wh do tutoring. Not suggesting you join one, but many have examples of tutoring rates. I will see if I can find some.

Are you in some posh area, or just a normal one - i.e. not London? Just asking as rates will be different.

My going rate at my childrens' (primary) school is about £15-18 ph (Solihull) probably more in the South.

Meant to say "the" not "my" as I am not a teacher it would be unfair for me to be paid to tutor some poor child

Depends where you are in the UK and what level you are thinking about.

Thanks all - I'm in the Midlands and the pupil wants KS3 SATs help so I guess 12/13 quid an hour sounds reasonable?
