How much should I charge for my private lessons?

Specifying an hourly rate for private tuition can be a difficult task.

There are many variables to take into account when calculating the final price of your lessons. The main ones are:

  • What are you going to teach?: Typically, lessons in more complex subject areas or subjects that require a high level of preparation by the teacher are more expensive. The hourly rate for private lessons is also usually higher for higher levels of difficulty.
  • How much teaching experience do you have?: A tutor who has been teaching for many years and has an efficient teaching methodology can charge a higher price than someone who has no teaching experience.
  • Where will you teach?: If you have to travel to the student's home to teach, you should include travel costs in the hourly rate. Alternatively, you can offer online lessons, for which Classgap is a good solution.
  • Guaranteed success: Those academies or tutors who can guarantee successful results (based on their experience) may ask for higher fees. In any case, before you can guarantee success, make sure that you have the right teaching qualifiications and that you have assessed your students' level of knowledge beforehand.
