How much will a private tutor in NY cost?

We pride ourselves on offering a rare mix of high quality tutors and affordable prices.  Generally speaking, we charge between $55 and $145 per hour for tutoring in New York City. We then offer 5, 10, or 15% discounts for investing in 5, 10, or 15 hours in advance, and we do refund unused hours as well.  So you're never "locked in" to a large purchase of hours. Our goal is to empower you to improve your academic performance, not make you dependent on continually investing in tutoring support.
