Your english tutoring questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Tutors.
English tutors charge $25 to $80 per hour on average, depending on their experience, education level, location, and availability. Expect to pay $15 to $40 per hour when hiring a high school aged English tutor and $30 to $100 per hour for a certified English teacher with a degree.
English tutors help students with reading, writing, grammar, spelling, vocabulary, phonics, and speaking skills. English tutors assist students by reviewing and critiquing essays, increasing their reading comprehension, or improving their writing skills. English tutors also work with students in English as a Second Language (ESL) programs.
ESL (English as a Second Language) tutors help students who speak different primary languages learn formal English speaking, writing, grammar, and vocabulary. ESL teachers overcome language barriers to help students communicate clearly in English.

Start by searching our list of private ESL, reading, and writing tutors. Then follow these tips:

  • Contact and consult with at least three tutors before hiring.
  • Read their reviews, ask for references, and verify their education.
  • Discuss where the lessons will take place, the cost, and cancellation policies.
  • Ask what payment methods are accepted and when payment is due.
  • Ask about discounts for booking a package of lessons.
  • Hire the tutor on a trail basis to make sure they are a good fit.
