Math is one of the most critical skills kids learn in school. It’s also a big part of many important tests like the SAT and ACT, and excellent scores can make or break students’ chances of getting into their dream schools, receiving scholarships, and earning advanced course credits. It’s no wonder that math tutoring is an invaluable resource for students in need of a boost or extra practice.
The good news is, there are plenty of tutoring options for parents. Depending on your child’s needs, a one-on-one private tutor can be the most individualized option — and you can expect to pay more for this level of service. On the other hand, a group tutoring option may be less costly, but it’s important to note that these tutoring sessions are typically less individualized and will not give your student the same support as a private lesson would.
Rates for tutoring companies – or learning centers – vary by location and grade level, with rates typically ranging from $30 to $85 USD per hour. Additionally, some learning centers may charge admission, assessment, or books and materials fees.
Whether you choose to work as a private tutor or for an established learning company, finding a reliable and consistent income will be important to your long-term success. Many former Varsity Tutors employees have reported that developing their client base can be a time-consuming process, and it’s often challenging to maintain an expected amount of monthly revenue.
