hmm- you see I was expecting around £25 or £26 tbh, and to be frank- I NEED them to work over the summer to help this child ready for exam in November.

Soputh east I think £20 an hour, might have been £25

Not 11+ but £15 per hour in London. I don't have to pay over the holidays if no tuition is being given.

never heard of tutors expecting payment during the holidays!

They are paid by the hour for each hour worked.

Think he is pulling a fast one, i would look around.

I get my tutors from

www.homeschooltutoring.co.uk

have used them twice to locate tutors and would highly recommend.

you have to check if they are in your area from the website

Ours charges £40 per hour for single tuition, £25 per child for paired tuition. We don't pay in the holidays. We are in an expensive bit of London - south-west. I think they charge what the market will stand.

We pay £14ph (£13 if paid half-termly). ds1 is in a small class situation with about 8 children.

Tutor very good and we are only charged for when he attends (on the understanding that we won't abuse the privilege). So if he is ill we don't have to pay.

If it were any other way, we couldn't afford it tbh, and are only doing it to give ds a fair playing field for the exam as it seems everyone is being tutored these days!

We are in Kent.

yes- £40 in LONDON- don't think west midlands has quite the same cachet or demand!

This would be one-to-one tuition though.

Thanks for all your replies so far smile

Friend in Harrow charges £25 an hour

EachPeachPearMum Wed 23-Jul-08 20:25:53

Thank you- I am going to offer him £26 plus travel expenses I think- he can decide whether he takes it up or not.

heronsfly Wed 23-Jul-08 20:26:56

£20 an hour in kent,but at his home and he supplies everything,practise papers ect.

I think in outer London £25 an hour is pretty standard for one to one and certainly no payment if you're not there but you'd be expected to agree for how long I suppose and give a bit of notice to stop if they'd been doing it for a while. I don't think it's normal to pay travel expenses. They are self employed. Their hourly rate includes their own expenses and travel. My ex husband did this and either it was here in our house or he went to them but usually it was not very far away so travel wasn't really an issue. Same fee if here or at their place.

We paid £22 an hour to the multi millionairess very nice tutor

singersgirl Thu 24-Jul-08 19:20:17

Yes, DS1's tutor did give up the day job - Y6 primary school teacher - when she had her youngest child. She is clearly doing very well out of it and much in demand. People keep asking me if she is as good as her reputation. We'll wait and see how DS1 gets on!
