Select the tutor expertise level and the number of hours of tutoring needed to estimate the tutor rate and total amount.

## Tutor Rate Formula

The following formula is used to estimate a tutor rate.

TR = 25*EL

• Where TR is the tutor rate (\$/hr)
• EL is the expertise level factor. This is a multiple of the base of 25\$ an hour a preson should expect to pay.

Common Tutor Rates Based On Expertise:

Student = \$20-25\$/hr

Teaching Assistant = \$25-35\$/hr

Teacher = \$35-\$50/hr

Professor = \$50-100\$/hr

Field Expert = 50-100\$/hr

## Tutor Rate Definition

What is a tutor rate?

A tutor rate is defined as the total cost per hour that a tutor charges for its services of teaching kids one on one.

When group tutoring occurs, the rate should be less than in one-on-one situations.

## Example Problem

How to calculate tutor rate?

1. First, determine the expertise level of the tutor.

For this example, the tutor is a teacher and is expected to charge \$35/hr.

2. Next, determine the number of hours per week that the kid needs tutoring.

In this case, the kid will need 2 – 2 hours sessions per week for a total of 4 hours.

3. Finally, calculate the total amount per week.

\$35/hr * 4 hours = \$140/week
\$140/week * 4 weeks = \$560/month
