I charged $50/hour in Philadelphia, and still tell people that in this area.  I usually say, “In Philadelphia I charged $50 an hour, but that’s negotiable.”  In the private tutoring I do now, I make $45 an hour, but I started two years a go at $35 an hour.

@AB Bride:  I have a master of science in education, though, and I only tutor history/English/study skills.  If you can tutor math, science, or SAT prep, you can charge more than $50 in a city, even if you don’t have a masters.  

WHY do we say “masters”???  It makes no sense.  Master’s?  Masters.  Master’s.  Bachelors.  Bachelor’s.  Bachelor of Arts.  Harumph.

ETA: So I looked up masters vs master’s, and master’s is “more correct”, though I cannot find WHY the apostrophe is used.  The degree belongs to the master?  It’s the master’s degree?  So therefore, a person with such a degree is a master, and her degree belongs to her?  Does that follow with bachelor’s degree?  The person who has graduated from college is a bachelor, and the degree is his or hers??  

 

I think I need to go to bed.

@AB Bride: I normally charge $40-$50, but I tutor graduate level statistics and GRE courses. Not sure for high school
