I have been recently laid off from my job and while I'm looking for the next big job, I thought I would try tutoring to earn some money. I live near a major Ivy League university and I have an advanced degree in biology. I used to tutor in undergrad and was a TA in grad school (about 10 years ago) so I have some experience.
I have a couple of questions for those of you have tutored / are tutoring:
1) How much do you charge an hour?
2) Do you do one-on-one tutoring or do group sessions?
3) What are some dos and don'ts that you would suggest?
4) Any anecdotes you would care to share?
When I was a tutor, I advertised on the student bulletin boards. I did one-on-one tutoring and we would go over problems that the student was having, extra problems, a couple of questions on the problem sets but never the whole thing, helping them to study for exams, etc. I charged $20/hour but that was ten years ago.
Thanks in advance for your help!
