  • I wouldn't pay anything. I'd help my own child

  • When I was a tutor, through a tutoring company, the fee was $45/hr. $20 of which went to the tutor. Some families also tipped. Elsewhere I have looked, $20 seems the norm.

    Personally, I wouldn't pay a tutor because I am a teacher, so I'd just do it myself.

  • when i was a tutor, i got 50 bucks a week for 2 hours on tuesday and an hour on thursday. however, it was for a high school student. for elementary school, what is the problem your child is having? Is it the work? or is it actually having to do the work? Lots of children claim to have problems with work when they simply dont want to do it. Or, maybe the work is already understood and your child is bored. I would say speak with the teacher.

  • Actually (OP) I am a teacher, turned SAHM. I am going to start offering tutoring services. I did a lot of work with struggling students before. I was thinking about $25/hr. I only need to earn about $200 a month.
