My DD is a high school senior.
WELLL, I think it will
I wouldn't pay anything. There are many free tutoring programs out there and teachers stay after school to provide help and they have tutoring programs at schools. If I was to pay for a student tutor they would have to have straight A's on all their report cards and have taken higher level classes, because the report cards would be their resume. Volunteer tutoring at a boys/girls club would look better than having a job, which is essentially what it would be.Also you need to check to see if there are rules and laws concerning this in your country/area if she wants to tutor school children.
"Volunteer tutoring at a boys/girls club would look better than having a job, which is essentially what it would be."
I TOTALLY agree with this statement! Volunteer "work" looks wonderful on a resume, college application and NHS application (if your dd is so inclined). When there are so many students willing to participate in the free programs, I think your dd would have a really hard time getting a paid gig. Jmho.
I did pay a student tutor last year to help my daughter in Chem. Free tutoring is also offered here ...but it was at the same time as her track practice (immediately after school). Most of the kids in athletics would not have been able to take part in peer tutoring. So I can see this service being helpful to kids who are interested, but have a time conflict. (some kids aren't comfortable with being helped by certain teachers either) The boy who helped her was a top student, and I paid $15/hour. $9 seems reasonable especially if she isn't spending a great deal of time with each student. Ours wasn't over here that much. After he'd been over to help maybe 3 times...she decided that she could do the work on her own. (maybe just seeing how he went about doing the work helped her more than anything)
It's worth a try to see if anyone's interested...you never know.
Working as a volunteer tutor would be a better route to go.
its going to be hard for your dd to get a paying tutor job when so many programs are out there offered for free.
Yes, we have hired a private tutor for dd1 in physics.
How successful your daughter will be in finding clients will depend on your geography.
"I could see this working out more as a babysitting thing.
