I am paying £25 for two hours to my tutor for 11 plus preparation.
Is this reasonable?

Depends where you live, but I have tutored 11+ (maths) and charged £25ph (non-London) so yes, I'd say it was very reasonable. That was 3 or 4 years ago, as I now only tutor older students (GCSE/A-L), but wouldn't surprise me if the prices had gone up since.

£30-£35 an hour here

At £25 for 2 hours... how many in the group??? 4 I would guess...

Sounds a bargain to me.

I was paying £35ph for six in a group, but the tutor had an amazing pass rate. I wasn't even taking DS because I wanted him to pass the 11+, he wasn't being educated at school at the time.

I have friends who tutor for the 11+ and charge £20, but I'm not sure if this is for an hour...one is 45 mins, I think the others may have factored in a change over.

I think those with a high pass rate may charge more.

My tutors pass rate is also fantastic. £25 for two hours and not for one hour.
She tutors for Sutton grammars like Wilsons, Wallington , Nonsuch , St. Olaves, Bexley grammars etc.
It is a group of 4 children.

The "go-to" tutor around here (NW England) charges £40 per hour for one-to-one, which includes all materials, homework provided for all papers every lesson, and marking in his own time outside the lesson.

That's for tailored lessons - he doesn't adopt a "one size fits all" approach and concentrates on pupil's individual weaknesses.

That's also in a hired room, not his home nor the pupil's home so it's a professional set up. He hires a room all day Sat and Sun and after school weekdays to set up his "classroom" with materials, white board, PC and projector etc. So the £40 ph isn't just his time, it's towards room hire and the materials/equipment costs too.

Is this a sly advertisement? Too much positive info in the second post makes me suspicious.

I mean mgm1966's second post not BluePancakes'.
