Private Tutoring Rates

MyGuru’s prices for private tutoring range from $49 to $129 per hour depending on the subject, location, tutor, and situation (i.e., such as travel, required prep time, etc.). All quoted prices are base rates with discounts available for investing in packages of hours in advance. These discounts range from 5% to 20%, depending on the subject, test, and situation. 

You are never “locked in,” and can receive a refund for unused hours (excluding a 5% processing fee).  To provide more information on your situation and receive a customized quote, please fill out the form below.

Due to COVID-19, we are currently offering the following:

  • a free 20+ minute introductory session with a potential tutor (via phone our online platform)

  • an additional 10% discount on all online tutoring

*Pricing and hour commitment minimums as of April, 2020 for In-Person Tutoring. Base rates for online tutoring are generally 10% lower (or more).

**Academic tutoring pricing varies based on the situation (i.e., subject, specific location, session length, required prep time, etc.). The prices listed provide a general guideline we try very hard to follow; but, it is not guaranteed that hourly rates will always fall within the given range.

If you are interested in having more than one student participate in a tutoring session, we charge 30% more per student for shared sessions.
