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

All opinions and suggestions welcome.

Thanks in advance.
