There can be little doubt that private tuition for students can really help to make the difference between grades. Indeed, in some cases, it can make the difference between passing and failing. However, outside of school, tuition for junior college can vary greatly in price. Essentially, it is fair to say that you simply get what you pay for. For some students, this may mean focussing on an area of math that happens to be weak and a session or two is enough. For others, catching up with some essential learning may be more appropriate so that the student can keep up with the rest of the class.
Therefore, expenditure on math tuition will vary in accordance with the frequency that is needed. Nonetheless, rates demanded by tutors also vary. Those with proven results and fast teaching methods, meaning fewer sessions are needed, tend to charge the most. Non-qualified teachers, perhaps undergraduates who are working towards their qualifications, tend to charge the least.
As a gauge, it’s worth pointing out the undergraduates will charge anything between $35 and $40 per hour for JC math tuition. If the tutor concerned has already built up something of a reputation for JC H2 math and is in demand, then their prices can go up to $45 per hour and, in the most extreme cases, even exceed this threshold. Nevertheless, this sort of tutoring is often the most cost-effective for students who are looking for a few sessions to help them with a specific deficiency in their mathematical knowledge.
Qualified teachers who work outside of the school system and offer mathematics tuition on a full-time basis will demand a greater fee. Many will charge in the region of $55 per hour, although it is sometimes possible to split this fee if the sessions are not booked on a one-to-one basis, but with two students sharing the lesson. Again, experience counts with qualified teachers providing junior college math tuition and those with several years worth of teaching behind them are likely to charge around $60 per hour.
Current secondary school teachers who are well versed in the H2 syllabus will usually demand the greatest fees from students. When offering private sessions for JC math tuition anything from $80 to $120 per hour is the going rate for these part-time tutors. This includes teachers who have recently retired or those who have just come out of the education system, perhaps due to family commitments. Those teachers with NIE degrees who tutor full-time tend to operate at the highest level of pay. As such, these tutors can be the best option for students who are already doing well, but are seeking the highest grades prior to the transition to Junior College.
