As of 2015, private tutoring generally costs between $10 and $15 per hour with an inexperienced student and between $30 and $85 per hour with a professional. Costs vary depending on a tutor's mastery of different subjects, her certifications and the tutoring location.
Student tutors specializing in one or two subjects generally cost the least, especially if providing services in general locations, such as libraries or study halls. An experienced tutor with a wide range of subject knowledge and certifications, such as a teaching or special education degree, usually costs the most. Home visits are likely to raise the cost for any tutors, and prices can vary from city to city.
