If you have $150 a month to spend on tutoring and you think that your child needs about 2 to 3 hours of help per week or 12 hours per month, that means that you have an average of $12.50 per hour to spend on tutoring. Most private tutors or corporate tutoring centers charge much more than that. Though elementary tutor pay rates vary, they generally range from $20/hour for a high school student up to $75/hour for a certified, experienced K-12 educator with a competitive university degree. Several factors, not limited to location, market demands, education level, and professional experience, all affect the tutor pay rate.

In general, you should plan to charge between $30 and $70 per hour for in-person tutoring. Just remember to factor in any expenses you incur while traveling to and from your tutoring sessions. Group Tutoring vs. Private Tutoring Another thing to consider, is whether you want to privately tutor your students (1-on-1), or tutor students in groups.

Individual tutors generally charge according to their level of education and experience. Expect to pay anywhere from $10 to $40 per hour for a high school student, and up to $100 (or more!) per hour for a certified teacher with top-notch experience. A teacher trained and qualified to work with children with special needs will likely charge more. The rates for private tutoring can range anywhere from $10 per hour all the way to $75 or even $100 per hour. Weekly rates can range on average from $250 to $800 or even more.

There are a multitude of factors that contribute to such a massive span of rates. 5 Tips on What to Charge for Private Tutoring Per Hour. The families pay the educator they hire between $30 and $60 an hour, or roughly between $60,000 and $125,000 per year if the teacher were to work 40 hours per week, which is. Tutoring prices typically range from $45 to $60 per hour, depending on the subject.

Corporate tutors tend to be the most costly option. Most corporate tutors will also require assessment fees, charge for the cost of materials, and request payment up. An entry-level Tutor with less than 1 year experience can expect to earn an average total compensation (includes tips, bonus, and overtime pay) of $14.49 based on 230 salaries. An early career. As an independent tutor, I discuss payment individually with each client.

I am aware that for many clients, tutoring costs can be a struggle, yet their child’s education (or their own—I generally tutor special needs children, but also tutor adults. The average cost for a Math Tutor is $50. To hire a Math Tutor to improve your math skills, you are likely to spend between $40 and $50 total.

  • LMAO �������� I love how you said if you don’t know what direction you’re going in you’re probably not a good tutor for anyone ������ honestly at it’s best���� HogOn

  • Wow! You are awesome ���� Thanks for all the advice and information.
    I have been considering doing this for a looong time. My only fear now is my schedule in regards to my desired client base. I am also a mother of young children, one not enough for school yet.

    You gave me a lot to consider. This has been the most valuable video I have seen in a long time!

  • i tell the kid here the deal we save 270 for your college, BUT here is the rule, what you don’t spend you get after you get your degree,

    maybe think about going to a CC for the first 2 year, then 4 year college and you might if you work part-time walk away with enough to buy a house with cash when you finish college.

  • wow i wish my parents paid for my college, such a blessing and a privilege. Unfortunately, my parents didn’t help me at all with college, dad made 85K a year and mom made 20K a year. My dad made it seem like the only way to get my education is to go into debt, and I assumed at the time that every student went into debt to go to college. neither of my parents went to college.

  • My parents and I split the balance on undergrad 50/50 and it was perfect in hindsight. As far as grad school, that was totally on me because that’s above and beyond the standard and my choice as an adult.

  • Go to a community college, get fafsa, transfer, get scholarship, do small side hustles, live at home or on friends couch, graduate with little to no debt or join the military and get that GI Bill

    Most parents who dont have the means to pay for your tuition will gladly let you still live at home as long as you contribute what they ask of you

    Lastly, Avoid most for profit schools

  • Honestly my parents not being able to pay for my 4 year degree pushed me harder to make it happen. I applied for any academic scholarship their was and was able to get some grants to help me for most of my schooling. The rest I paid out of my own pocked from working 30 plus hours while going to school full time. Graduated debt free and with a good job ����

  • I was blessed to have my parents pay for my college and I was able to graduate debt free. The same for my sister. I could never thank them enough for that and I plan to do the same for my children

  • I suggest my kids go to trade school. You can earn a red seal certificate in so many different types of professions without burying your future in debt.

  • Making your kid pay for all of their college tuition when you are a millionare because you had to work for it is such a boomer thing to do. College is more expensive now. Theres nothing wrong with 5000 a year but what’s the point of having a lot of money if you don’t use it to give your family a better life than you had.

  • They pay for it. I made deal with my kids to pay, but they take out loans & I pay off upon graduation. However, if they drop out they are on the hook for the loans themselves.

  • I’d like to pay for my kids’ tuition (if I ever have kids). If you make winning decisions and are able to put your kids into a better situation than people who didn’t, then there’s nothing wrong with that, and the whiners who made bad and short-sighted decisions and whose parents and grandparents made bad and short-sighted decisions can buzz off.

  • Pay for performance. My son took 16 hrs and played college football so he had a full load and initially did well. The agreement was based on a sliding scale of our contribution as related to his GPA. If he failed to meet expectations he was responsible for working through the summers to make up any difference in cost. He ended up paying for about 1/2 of his schooling and unfortunately could not focus on school and sports with equal results. School took priority.

  • He. Needs. A. Job. Scholastics aren’t going to round him out. Customer service jobs will be necessary humility and balancing school and work is a critical life experience.

  • I guess this fool didn’t read the fine print with 529s. Anything that’s not used for schooling gets a 10% penalty on growth when you withdraw it. So not only did he oversave ($290k for tuition??), but he’ll get smacked by the IRS if he decides to cut off his son. He should’ve worked through this question already way back before he opened the fund.

  • My parents had me pay for half of my college, they wanted me to be invested in my education. I thought it was more than fair then and I see it as a blessing today. And honestly, I did feel invested in my education and I made the most of it.

  • NO. No parents should pay for their kids college. Tell them in H.S. they better make straight A and get full scholarship if they want to go to college. Let them struggle and pay their way…..and if they decide to take out a loan kick them out of the house.

    I’ll rather give my son 40k to start a business or for a down payment for a home instead of wasting it on a college degree. America’s college is a scam and the government is the big shark behind it.

  • Will be a millionaire in my 40s. Any goods I may have(most likely wont), are not seeing a dime of it for college. At 18, they are on their own. I earned my money, they will need to earn theirs. Anyone who pays for their kids college is foolish.

  • My parents saved $13K for my college and I made $15k/year from working while taking 15 units. Went to community college and then the local state school. All 4 of my siblings did the same thing and none of us have student debt. I would say definitely help your children but they should be required to have a job while going to school. The job is where you really learn.

  • food for thought: When filling out a FAFSA which you are required to do, it asks for the parents income because the government will automatically assume the parent will provide financial assistance for college even if they do not. This is important because the numbers a person gives them help the government determine what kind of loans a person is eligible for.

  • Its a little hard for a lot of folks to concentrate on retirement and pay for their children’s college, esspecially when there is so much inflation in college cost caused by consumerist ‘keep up with the jones’s” types or people that have bought into the narrative that starting out a young adult’s life by saddling them with crushing debt is just part of the deal. Its better to teach Junior and Missy to fish, than to give them a fish.

  • You saved money for your son’s education,
    but now you want to be stingy and greedy.
    The parents on this show are offspring of Satan.

  • No kids yet but my plan would be cover their tuition and necessities + petty cash spending money. If they want extra they are free to work part time and earn it. Then there will be a bonus each semester based on GPA and behavior. Soon as they are acting up or failing, they get nothing. That’s what my parents did with me basically. I completely messed it up, and was forced to learn the hard way the value of a dollar and grow up / find my way in life.

  • I live in a state where they offer prepaid College. We did it for the 3 kids. We were able to do it because instead of giving them a cellphone, the money went to a college fund. It may be a community college but it’s college anyway. They were also homeschooled.
    Our daughter is very thankful for her education as she sees her friends without any savings for College. If they can start debt free, why not.

  • I did ALMOST as Dave did. I pay for their 1st year, if they graduate that year with at least a 3.0 gpa, I pay for their next year. If any college year they have LESS than a 3.0 gpa, I don’t pay for their next year. “But I’ll do better this coming year.” Good, then put YOUR OWN money (or loan) where your mouth is. At the end of the four years (no longer than 4 years) and the student did poorly ONLY that one year, they have to pay the student loan interest and I’ll pay for that ‘less than 3.0 gpa’ year. Skin in the Game! It worked for all 4 children. P.S., only one year out of 16, did one child get less than a 3.0 gpa and she did pay the student loan interest.

  • Personally I’ll pay for a trade school because the cost is much cheaper and the payoff is quicker and my kids would be making real money quicker.

    College is fine but thats something they will have to earn by themselves imo.

  • I graduated from college this past week debt-free. I am a first generation college student and my single mother didn’t have money to help. I worked 50+ hours a week between internships and starting my own business. This wouldn’t have been possible without Dave Ramsey and the Ramsey Personalities. Graduating debt free is possible. God bless.

  • If you can afford it, then you should never make your kids work. If they want a part-time job, that’s great, but I’d structure it like what Ramsey said.

  • I love how people call the DR show and love to brag about how much money they have when they already know the answer to the question prior to asking.

  • Make him pay for his own school so that he will take it more seriously and get job experience. That money that you saved up for him would serve him better after age 30 or however long it takes him to become a wise man. Once he has himself established he can have that money as a retirement or an investment fund. Better yet, how about you invest it in income producing real estate for him to prosper off of and leave to his children. If you don’t think he will handle the money well, give the money to one of your other kids if you have any.

  • As always, I respect Dave’s opinions but, going through college on student loans and not having to hand over any money myself but rather had a third party make the transactions for me, it wasn’t until I dropped out and was billed with $7500 that I learned and understood what kind of money was being spent on me and my education. In my opinion, if you wish to pay for your child’s college do it but make them pay you back a percentage of their tuition from their part-time/full-time job as they’re attending school. It’s an alternative way to make them put some “skin in the game”. It’ll help them understand the financial side of things rather than running through college blindly feeling like it’s free.

  • A lot of companies offer tuition reimbursement to help their employees move up within the company. Maybe going straight into the work force and working their way up should be an option. I started as a bottle packer and worked my way up to the corporate sales team. I was able to learn all aspects of the company which makes me even better at my job.

  • I started talking to my son about morality and money when he was 8. By the time he went to college, he didn’t need any lectures from Mom.

  • My parents paid my college expenses assuming I achieved a GPA they deemed was acceptable. One semester I didn’t get the grades and I owed that money!

  • My family paid for my first masters degree and I paid for my second masters degree when I decided to pursue it. If I couldn’t pay for my future children’s education, I wouldn’t have them.

  • As a behavioral psychologist, I love this, Dave! ❤️ Consistent, predictable, and contingent outcomes are the key to shaping good habits in your kids.

  • Kids need to work for their schooling. They need to learn a useful trade instead of wasting time and money on college courses they wont use. They need to get their hands dirty. They are too entitled and spoiled.

  • For college in the early 1970’s, I worked summers as a steelworker and also for the City Recreation Department. The understanding was that, if I came up short, my parents would make up the difference. They did make up shortfalls on a couple of occasions. The summer work was brutally hard, and I had opportunity for a lot of overtime, and the lesson I learned quickly was that I didn’t want to be a hardworking steelworker as a career. Instead, I became a hardworking Semiconductor Engineer, later a Senior R&D Engineer for a large company in Germany. The job market became automated, then fizzled so I went on to a new career in Semiconductor Distribution. I retired as a Recruiter for a Medical College it was a tough life talking with Nursing and Medical Students every day (not)!
    My bills and mortgage are all paid, and I am free to spend my $millions as I see fit.

  • That’s what I said. I got a divorce and my child decided to not pay for her loan. Got stuck with a huge bill until I’m 72. Don’t do it!!

  • The parents” won’t be able to claim the child, or the student, on their taxes, because the student is working to pay for his “education student now files his own taxes. Parents lose out on five $5000, student tax return

  • Baloney. When someone works 20 hours a week, that cuts into time they can be studying. Employers don’t allow you to study when you’re working for them. From my experience at college, the people with the highest GPA’s were the ones not working; since they had more time to study.

  • I can’t stand the “must be nice” comments. Super annoying, and this is coming from someone who had nothing handed to me. The mindset is pathetic.

  • I was very fortunate that my dad paid for my college. He wasn’t there for us growing up but he did pay. Fortunately school was maybe $6K per year and I went to community college the first two years. I also worked 50 hours per week every break, while the other kids were partying in Florida or South Padre. I have never been unemployed since my first job at 16. If the kid is a worker, then pay for his schooling. His job is to be a student. If he’s generally spoiled and worthless, make him pay some.

  • I studied through scholarships, so I had/ must have very good grades. Also I had a part time job that used to pay rent, and still my mom (single mom) helped me with some money for transportation, food and misc. I I continue pursuing education through scholarships, and repeat the formula scholarship + xtra income ( must be low, because scholarships are sometimes restrictive about how much you can eran from work or receive another income).

  • I had to pay off my college loan on my own. I worked during college and did the first two years at a community college to save money. I don’t think it made me a better person and set me back. I feel I missed out because I didn’t have many choices. My husband and I got 529’s for both of our kids as soon they were born and my hope is that they enjoy a nice college experience with no college debt going into their adult years. I can’t believe that anyone who has the money to pay for their kid’s college, wouldn’t do so.

  • I’d add that the type of degree should be considered as well. I don’t mean that to be elitist but some degrees require a lot more effort and work than others. I went to school for engineering I wouldn’t say I was the most gifted student intellectually. I sat my bit in the library studying and doing homework for 60-80 hours a week. I didn’t party on the weekends, I studied. I would go 30 days without a day off. All of that just to make B’s and C’s (30% 40% of the class failed each class). If my son or daughter came to me and wanted to go for a challenging degree, I would absolutely financially support them WITH the stipulations Dave gave. The degree program will be all they can handle by itself, and they won’t pass just by BSing it. Just my $0.02

  • im a 20 year old college student with no financial help from my parents for college, and immediately threw my phone across the room when I heard how much this man had saved for his kids college. I GOT THIS THOUGH AND I WILL GRADUATE DEBT FREE ON MY OWN.

  • I wouldn’t pay for their college but I would allow them to stay home after they get their first salaried job so they can pay off debt faster.

  • Totally makes sense to establish some parameters if deciding to pay for college tuition. If the parents took years of effort to earn and save money for their kids’ education, it shouldn’t be too much to expect that the kids would in turn make at least some effort to earn those college funds. (Indeed, it’s like a type of job itself!)

  • Good information Dave, thank you for the videos. We are struggling with the same thing, having a 529 to pay for our kids’ college and can afford to pay for living expenses as well, but wanting them to stay hungry. It is nice that your kids have the privilege of falling into the family business and still getting their college degrees. We don’t have a family business (except investment real estate), so we want our kids to do better than us. We went from lower class to upper middle class and we are hoping they can get even higher. I am trying to figure out a way to make them work during school, without forcing it lol. Or if being active in a Greek housing system would make more beneficial connections. We have emphasized that both my wife and I gained great business knowledge from working during High School and College. We didn’t have parents with privilege that understood the US economic system or had existing wealth, because they were immigrants. There are obviously different answers, but I think socioeconomic status of the family and extended family also play into the answer, but weren’t addressed in this call.

  • Forgot the most important part of the precollege discussion; “Exactly what do you plan to do with this expensive tool to earn a living after graduating?” Personally, I don’t go to buy a tool at Home Depot until I know what I’m going to use it for first!

  • I graduated in 2016 and have my student loans paid off now thankfully, but I feel bad that my parents took on about 75% of the tuition themselves. I’m grateful for their help but I feel like if I had known up front what their loans would be, I would have put more on myself since I don’t want to feel like a financial burden.

  • Feels great getting your own car and own full time job if you go to university or not live at home or pay a mortgage you all have a good day. Independence and self discipline cannot be taught

    Your mindset keeps you going mo matter what money you have keep strong keep focused and enjoy life

  • A 3.5 or higher GPA equals 100% of tuition paid. Small monthly allowance, room and board, and books get covered, no strings attached. And any money that they’ve “credited” me by getting a scholarship turns into a down payment on their house after they graduate.

  • Requiring 4 year finishing is not good in my opinion. I researched for months before graduating high school and still had never heard of my dream degree program until my 5th semester in college. I had good grades the whole time, but I had to start from the beginning on the degree flowchart. Very grateful that my parents paid something I could have, in order to let me focus on the future a little, as well as focus on serving others with less fortunate family circumstances while I was in school.

  • I am so so grateful for the amount of money my parents chipped in for college. Only have minimum student loans because of that. Yes, I could have worked more during school to have paid those and graduate with no loans, but having the choice to not work enabled me to 1. participate more in student organizations and unpaid research (tho some of it was also paid) and 2. look for better internships to take. I worked every summer, but only chose to work 2 semesters.

  • Worked part time all the way through. Took almost as few student loans as I could. Just over 15k. Should be debt free end of the year if all goes as planned.

  • I think save for their education, don’t tell them. Help them with books or groceries during the tight months, maybe start them with a $3,000 car and when they graduate give them the money saved to pay off any loans then. A great gift, teaches them work ethic, and will hopefully keep them from choosing a field of study that will not pay enough for their future. That is of course assuming they even go to college and not a trade school, or start down some other entrepreneurial path. In which case if the idea is good, there is seed money for their business potentially. Best thing you can do is model good financial decisions, and beat it through their heads constantly. I know that it took 20 years in my case.

  • As a young person, always managed to work for companies that offered tuition assistance or reimbursement. Entire undergraduate tuition paid for.

  • I provide my kids with their own vehicle and allow them to live at home on the condition that they work a full or part time job and pay for their own college tuition. Works like a charm.

  • Financially, my parents couldn’t afford to pay for my 7 sisters and 5 brothers college. Some went to college, some didn’t go to college but at the end we all made out pretty good. As for me, I chose to join the Marine Corps and obtain all three of my degrees. I am so thankful that I am not in debt paying off college tuition. I am planning to start my machine shop with 0 debt and 0 overhead.

  • 18 yr old college kids have no concept of the value of money. When you simply give them a $200,000 education for free. They rarely appreciate it and will act accordingly. Helping is fine, but paying everything is a bad idea.

  • My parents paid for my living expenses (rent, food, public transport, etc.) while I was in school. I took out between 5k to 8k in loans every year. I was responsible for those loans once I graduated. I thought it was a good balance. I guess they thought it was their job to get me through school, but once I got my diploma, I’m responsible for myself.

    I would like to add that I lived in a studio apartment with my best friend. And we slept on bunk beds since the space was soo small. We didn’t even have a couch or tv. I did most anything I could to minimize my future loan amount and minimize the amount me parents were giving me.

    Spent my summers working and saving most of it. Graduated with about $10k in my bank which I was going to use to buy a car. Ended up not needing a car where I live and used the $10k to immediately pay off a good portion of my loan.
