how much tuition fees to collect?

How much can an undergrad charge for tuition?
(i am 19 this year and I am waiting for Alvl results)
So far
P1-$10
Sec1,2-$15\$20
Sec3,4-$25
Jc-$25

Am I undercharging my students?

Re: how much tuition fees to collect?

Which JC did you come from?

O level results?

Any previous tutoring experience?

No. Might be overcharging IMO, for upper sec.

Re: how much tuition fees to collect?

My friends charge higher.
I can only say that I am from a mid-tier JC. Slightly above average.
No tutoring experience previously but I just started tutoring so I somewhat have experience now.
the fees above are what I charged before I started tutoring.
6 distinctions for Olevels with a mix of A1s and A2s.

Not sure about primary school but your secondary charges quite reasonable since my ttn teacher charged me 30$/hr

You are a tutor? Wow I didn't know.

(Usually people will shun me away because I am from JJC. )

Hopefully you understand why I have been pushing for tutors from only the top tier JCs to be listed on my website.

Unfortunately, however capable you are, once you reveal you are from JJC, hiring parents will often be turned off. Not to mention them subsequently shunning you. To have such a sterotypical sticker slapped on you does suck I have to admit, but social stratification is here to stay.

Don't take this personally, because it isn't. Just stating the truth.

Yes I know you have your reasons. It really sucks when parents treat JJC students way worst than even polytechnic students. It is as though we are the "ITE" of A levels (when it is not true at all...)

I guess the only way to show my worth is actually shoving my A level results in their face.

Even so, I am skeptical they will budge.

After all, if another kid from say HCI with equally excellent A level results as yours comes
forward to offer tutoring services, the hiring parent probably won't bat an eyelid and settle for that kid instead of you.

You just need to mention " I was from HCI / RI " ..you will sweep the parents off their feet.

Precisely. Seriously I really hope the society change by not judging a person by the school they're from.

$15/h for lower is sec is kind of low. Others usually charge 25>.
When you take into account travelling time and money spent travelling,
I am earning 6/h which is worse than office jobs for students

Re: how much tuition fees to collect?

I feel that these days, most parents would prefer a degree holder teaching their kids. And looking at your qualification, I don't think parents would want to pay too much for someone who does not have minimally a degree.
Those rates listed seems alright then.
