How much should I charge for an hours maths or science tutoring?

I just finished my A levels getting A*s in the subjects that I would be tutoring. I'm currently studying Maths, Biology, Chemistry & Physics at AS.

All advice appreciated

Well it's just GCSE. I know that high end tutors that are loaded with papers make customers pay 60£ for 2 hours. 40£ for 1 hour.

Since you're looking for customers and haven't tutored before then I'd say start at 15£ for 1 hour. 25£ for 2 hours.

If you've just finished GCSE's tbh you would have to do it for rock bottom as there will be plenty of people that have completed A levels/uni students also looking to earn money and their higher qualification will make them far more desirable. Personally I wouldn't be willing to pay for someone whos highest education level is GCSE to tutor children.

I have a little experience tutoring before within school & I also help tutor my brother who is in year 11. Thanks for the advice.

Yeah, I figured that I would not earn much compared to more qualified tutors. However £15 an hour is still pretty good wage for a 16 year old.

I see where you're coming from. But people still seem interested even though I've only done GCSEs. I guess I have the added benefit of knowing the syllabus & exam style as I only sat the papers recently.

If you can get away with charging £15 then by all means go for it!!!

I just remembered that the specifications have changed. The only new specs you should have sat were English and Maths since we are both in Year 12.

I hear new specs are harder. If i was you I'd just tutor Maths and forget about the other subjects.

Yeah, the maths spec is the same as we sat. My brother is in year 11. The science specs are quite similar with a few added components. But from what I've seen they are relatively easy so I'm sure I will be able to learn these if people want me to tutor science as well.

Lol i got a pretty crap memory. I remember that the added A-level stuff to the GCSE sciences are things you're gona learn about anyway, and i recall that the majority of the starting topics in A-level are just recalling stuff from GCSE.

Go ahead mate i advise you relearn the GCSE stuff as a fellow student doing BioChem

Maybe just £4 per hour? GCSEs themselves aren't worth much
