How much is a tutor for a 2nd year university math class worth?
So I'm about to start tutoring a girl who's in a 2000 level linear algebra course. She has asked me how much i'll charge, and i have no idea whats fair. I've got no tutoring experience, but i do have a 3.92 gpa and I TA for a vector calculus class. What do you think is a fair price to charge? (In canadian dollars). I make $16/hour during my day job, so i'm thinking it should be more than that to make it worth my while. Is $20 fair? I'm pretty sure most tutors cost more than that... but most are probably more apt to tutor than me too. What do you guys say?

$20 is very fair. Two ways to approach it though ... 1) phone other tutors in the area and see how much they charge (and then undercut them by a buck) 2) ask her what she is willing to pay, and then negotiate. $20 is a good benchmark.

I know a 23 year who charges Sgd 250 a month (about Can$200?). She gives one hour-tuition 2 times a week. She's a senior student at NUS and a former UWC scholar at Pearson in Canada.

Find out how much a local music teacher charges for an hour of piano or violin lessons, one-to-one. In the UK that's about £25 per hour, maybe $50 Canadian. If it's your first tutoring job, you could maybe start at $30, but $20 is way too low.
