Hi. I have approached a tutor who is asking for £32 an hour. He is very successful but I can't really afford this amount. Is this the going rate for Highgate/GoldersGreen/Finchley area? I am useless at maths and so will not tutor my daughter myself. Anyone know the going rate?

Have you looked on the tutor bit of this site (go to home and then look on left hand side)? There may be some tutors from the area on ther and you may be able to get an idea of how much they charge

The going rate from parents I know using tutors in this area is £20 -£42 with an average being mid thirties.

I paid £23 an hour. £42 is ridiculous!

In the suburbs, £30 is standard, £35 not uncommon.
In St John's Wood, I heard of £60 being charged.

I have to admit £42 is pretty steep. Don't pay unless you think the tutor will suit your child, and don't get caught in the paranoid frenzy of other kids in the class being tutored by the same person. Each child is different.

My tutor is in Totteridge and I pay £33 an hour. I understand this might be a bit expensive compared to what the charges are in other areas but at least my son is been challenged which for me is quite important as he is not getting this at the school he goes to.

hmmm....well personally i think £40 is a bit steep for a parent who just wants to give their child some extra help with their work.
My sons tutor charges £10 (i know!!) and my son loves her to bits.
No she doesn have 20 years experience (although she is a maths teacherand i dont know if she spends 'hours' marking, but what i do know is she has given my son the confidence to do things he couldnt do before and has made it fun. :D

Hi, I can"beat" the last poster, my DD's tutor charges £5 per hour, and that is only if you can afford it!

Not in London though, Gloucestershire, she is a sweetheart, and tutors because she likes to see "normal" kids have a chance at a grammar school education.

The best attribute she has is that she is such a lovely lady, and all the children love going to her house, she manages to tutor different age children for different subjects,including grammar prep, she bakes cakes at the same time,she amazes everyone who meets her.

I don't imagine there are many around like her, we were so lucky to have found her! [/quote]
