i did tutoring and i charged from £5 to £10 an hour according to the subject and the level. I did KS3 which was only £5 an hour and i did GCSE £10 for maths/science only. I could range to other subjects like history, geography and DT but i would have to do a bit of extra reading to do so. The reason why my price were so low was because i was a Y11 student at that time and so people just had my previous grades to judge my knowledge on. It was successful and i had made good amount of cash but i stopped after a few months as i found it was interfering with my own studies.

i would say that as your a GCSE student ur pricing must be low and you should make sure u knw wot ur talking about INSIDE AND OUT! it can b very awkward if i child asks you a question which is actually simple but you haven't come across yet. Good luck

Where/How is it best to advertise for tutoring in your local area?

Word of mouth was my best tool but i was able to advertise it in school as well (need to get permission tho). If you are looking for some kids in ur area apposed to your school then i would recommend a news agent, if you know a family with children then maybe just drop a leaflet or some info in there mail box. But i have found that if you help one person and ask them to spread the word, more people will more likely follow.

My bro tutors a friends sister in maths and charges £10 an hour, but he's not strict if it runs over 10 mins or anything, still just charges £10.

I want to do this, although I want to do GCSE Maths, Chemistry, Biology and English Tutoring. Perhaps Geograohy as well although I'm not getting great grades in that >_<

You don't tutor maths, maths tutors you.

So you were tutoring GCSE students without having completed any GCSEs yourself?

There are lots of tutoring agencies around but sadly, at your age, the best ones won't pick you up because...well, you're just a kid.

Wouldn't worry though. There are plenty of stupid, poncy rich kids with pushy parents. Easy money.

Greeting!
It is very exciting to hear from you that you are considering the same thing as I am! here is my thread and some advice might found on it.
http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...t=math%20tutor
But in order to become a math tutor at such young age you have to have a great common sense and understand of math concept, so you have to try hard, be confident and make their parents believe in you, good luck!

Where abouts would you tutor, like do they come to your house, or do you go to their house or what???? I was thinking about tutoring too, next year obviously.
