Hello,
I have recently relocated to the area and am continuing offering home tuition, privately. I've been teaching 25 years plus, with a Master's degree in SEN and I am currently full-time teaching here. I want to grow my private tutoring business here but what do local mums feel is reasonable for a fee, given my expertise and experience?
- standard 1 hour lessons?
- specialist teaching for pupils with Dyslexia and/or other learning difficulties?
- What would additional reasonable charges be for visiting child's home given travel time/fuel etc?
- Would you as parents prefer to visit my home or have me visit yours?

Any local views would be appreciated. Thank you. Dionne

Hi Dionne, are you PATOSS qualified? That would be the first thing I would look for in a tutor for my dyslexic children.
I prefer tutors that come to my house as I have other children. Fees depend on the local area. It might be worth checking the PATOSS website as if you were a parent and contacting other tutors to find out what they charge.

Yes PATOSS or AMBDA for dyslexia teaching IMHO.

As a tutor (with Dyslexia PG qualification) I prefer to teach in my own home - I have so many resources I can reach for at home, plus I know I'll be teaching in a quiet area with a table that's a good height etc.

I teach in school at the moment so I'm not doing any outside tutoring.
