    Hi guys!
    Next year I'll probably go to university in England (Cambridge or University College of London).. and I will have to find a part-time job.
    I would like to give private math-lessons to teenagers , but my questions are:
    1) How much may I earn per hour? What are the "average costs" for such a thing in England?
    2) Is it common to attend private lessons in England? Would it be easy to find people to give lessons to?

    Thank you for your help!

    I'm not entirely sure what the average costs are, but bear in mind that you won't be able to charge as much as a professional tutor. Whilst you're clearly a good mathematician if you're going to Cambridge or UCL, you're not a graduate so you'll need to charge reduced rates.

    Tutoring is quite common here, I know a lot of people who have been tutored.

    Do people prefer being tutored during the week or in the weekend?
    And.. Ok I can't charge, as a professional, but what "numbers" are we talking about? :P

    Around £10/15* an hour. How long you work for depends on how good you are.

    Depending on whether you go to those universities. Expect lower if you go to a uni with less reputation.

    A website I highly recommend for this type of thing is www.mytutorweb.co.uk. I've been using it for about half a year and you can do online tuition for students (though if you're going to be doing maths tuition I'd recommend a pen tablet that you can plug into your computer, as well as a decent webcam).
