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?

**First, determine the expertise level of the tutor.**For this example, the tutor is a teacher and is expected to charge $35/hr.

**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.

**Finally, calculate the total amount per week.**$35/hr * 4 hours = $140/week

$140/week * 4 weeks = $560/month
