I am a middle school mathematics teacher who is seriously considering taking an early retirement after 22 years of service.
I have already found one source of income for my retirement years. I am a part-time checker and proofreader for a publishing company which produces multiple-choice based workbooks reflecting the mathematics standards of different states.
In addition, I would like to do some private tutoring (grades 6 - 8).
If you were to offer your services as a private math tutor for grades 6 - 8, how much do you think you would charge per hour?
One person suggested that I charge $50 per hour, but that seems a bit outrageous. Another suggested $20 per hour, but that seems to low.
I'm thinking of maybe $25 or $30 per hour.
If any of you know anybody who does private tutoring, do you know how much they charge?
