Tuition Rates for Private Tutors

Rate Sheet

The tables below show suggested rates for individual tuition beginning on or after July 1st 2014. The unit of time used to determine rates is one hour, but tuition may also be given in multiples or fractions of this. The address of the pupil determines whether Region A or Region B rates apply.  If the pupil lives in Region A then the rates in Tables A1 and A2 should be used, if not then those in Tables B1 and B2 are applicable.

The tables below show the part of the total fee per hour retained by the tutor. The precise fee due to the tutor is a matter for negotiation between him and his client, and these are recommended rates only.

Tuition for “Advanced – Supplementary Level” should be charged at the lower end of the appropriate “Advanced level” range.

To obtain the total fee per hour payable by the client, agency commission at the standard rate must be ADDED to the rates shown in the tables.

Agency Commission

  • Agency Commission in Region A is £5.25 per hour.
  • Agency Commission in Region B is £5.10 per hour.
  • Commission due to the Agency for lessons given during a calendar month should be dispatched within 5 days of the end of that month.

Payment for Lessons Given

Tutors receive payment for their fee, and the agency commission, directly from the student at the end of each lesson. The tutor forwards any agency commission collected during a calendar month to us at the end of the month.

Simultaneous Tuition and Reduced-Rate Tuition

A tutor teaching two children from the same family simultaneously should charge about 10% more than he would charge for individual tuition. For each further member of the same family taught simultaneously, he would charge a further 10% more than the individual rate up to a maximum of twice the individual rate. Agency commission is increased in the same proportion.

For simultaneous tuition of pupils from different families add 25% to the individual rate for each student up to twice the individual rate. Agency commission is increased in the same proportion.

Where an individual or group is to receive six or more hours tuition per week, on a regular basis from a single tutor, the total fee per hour should be reduced by 10% and the agency commission by 25%.

Genuine Testimonials

"Thank you for your prompt and efficient service. It was so simple, I wish we had found you sooner."
M.G. (Ipswich)

"I used your site to source a Maths tutor for my son. It was very fortunate to find on your website that my choice of tutor lived very close by.  Davy visited every week until the examinations and was charming, always on time and gave my son the confidence to believe himself academically and helped him get a grip with Maths in a way he couldn’t at school.  I would definitely recommend him as a tutor and would use the Personal Tutors site in the future."
M.A. (Carluke)
