Setting Tutor Wages Based on Tutor Experience

Calculating Tutor Wages

For Tutoring Businesses there are many factors that affect how much you can charge your customers for a lesson. When it comes to paying your tutors for their service, some of these factors also affect how much a tutor should earn. The most important factors include:

  • Location
  • Subjects Offered
  • Qualifications

As your business continues to grow, you will need to find ways to accommodate different tutor wages. For example, if you have a team of 5 amazing tutors that teach a particular subject, but 3 of them have over 10 years of experience plus many accreditations, while the other 2 tutors have only a couple years of experience… How do you keep track of wages and what each tutor should earn based on their experience?

Using wage tiers.

Wage tiers allow you to set different tutor wages based on the service type of a lesson, and also allow you to pay teachers at a different hourly rate for the same service type. This way, you are able to set different tiers for the number of years of experience each tutor has. You can also use wage tiers to classify different tutor education levels and certifications.

When your tutors are set up in tiers, the wage will automatically adjust depending on the wage tier the tutor belongs to.  Teachworks also supports a variety of teacher wage methods including setting an hourly wage on the teacher’s profile or setting an hourly wage based on the service type of a lesson.
