    If so, I am curious to what you pay them per hour.

    Thanks!

    Gotcha.

    I was just asking because my mother is thinking about tutoring when she retires from teaching. Her nascent business plan is to charge $30 a session, with a session lasting about an hour and a half, once a week, with about 5 kids at a time. More home schooling type of thing. She figures that if she can get about 3 groups of 5 going she can keep her feet wet in teaching, while at the same time earn enough pin money to keep her in quilting supplies.

    edit: her subject is high school mathematics... calculus, trig, etc.

    Are you considering doing some tutoring, why not set something up on line?

    Twenty five for an hour, mostly science subjects, is what some of the teachers in family charge. They like cash too, for the obvious reason.
