Holy **** . I tutor english, history and portuguese, my fee is 5€ per hour and it's already way over the average for tutors (Which is somewhere between 3€ and 4€). I gotta move to Murrica.

My tutor got €20 for every hour that he did. 2 hours, 3 days a week adds up

depends a lot which subjects you tutor to which persons...

if you tutor mathematics to ~18 year olds you can get 20€/h easily here in Austria.
Real tutors often demand payments up to 50€ per 2h

I tutor & get paid $17 an hour. But I work like 10 to 15 hours a week. Not bad considering I'm a full time student though

I'm a full time student, I tutor on my spare time when I'm not doing translating work for some local websites, and I'm still awed. Making 5€ an hour tutoring is a LOT by this country's (Portugal) standards, yet all these posts about people making 15$+ make me feel jelly.

That's only $6.50 an hour. That's ridic low for most jobs. Maybe you just have a ton of tutors so the price is more competitive than America? How much do other jobs get paid in Portugal?

I suppose, though, it all depends on the cost of living in Portugal. If COL is way cheaper, typical pay would be lower too.

Minimum wage in Portugal is 475€ a month, currently the lowest in Europe as far as I can tell.

And it's not even that there's a lot of tutors, I'm tutoring from middle-high school kids to college freshmen, I made my price according to what most other people I know paid their tutors and to how much I paid my math tutor when I needed one (Which was about 3.50€ an hour).
The cost of life varies. Certain things (Wine, most foods) are somewhat cheaper than the EU average while others (Private health care/housing/gas) are through the bloody roof.

What mostly awed me was the difference in "average tutor wages" (Let's call them that), not from Portugal to America but actually from Portugal to the rest of Europe, according to some of these comments. It makes me dumbstruck.

Picture somewhat related, it's how I feel ;_;

If you work 40 hours a week for a month on that wage, you'd only be making $3.80/hr.

~608€. About 200€ more than the minimum wage, and given this is just a part-time, well, I guess it's onpar with Portugal's COL and wages.

Wow, I'm 17 and work at Mcdonalds and I make 13 AUD an hour.

considering 7.25 usd is minimum wage... who the **** would pay her 15 an hour?
User avatar #19 to #18 - MudkipTomislav (04/18/2012) [-]
Well it's not that much of a full time job, you would only need her for 4-5 hours and not all at once.

And people who teach should of course get above minimum wage if they're any good even if it's just tutoring.
