Just preparing for an upgrade, so save any long posts you make. Or short ones...

How much do you charge for 1 on 1 classes?

Recommended Posts


Originally I was going to start this thread to find out how much people think I could charge for teaching AP calculus 1 on 1 in Chengdu, but that got me thinking of all the different times I've asked people how much they charge for private classes and all the different answers I've got. So, for those willing to share... How much do you get, and how much do you think I could get?

I guess I may have been a little optimistic about peoples willingness to share this information.  Anyway, for anyone interested, I was in the New Oriental test prep center in Chengdu today and they gave me the following for 1-on-1 classes:


450rmb an hour for AP Calculus (400 if you buy in bulk)

600-650rmb an hour for SAT Reading (I assume based on the teacher)


You can get class prices on the internet but for 1-on-1 you have to ask in person.


A lot of this fee is going to be based on the New Oriental reputation (which is worth s**t if you ask me) but it would seem that if you put in some work, develop a good network and reputation, you can clean up doing this kind of thing...


Please correct me if I'm wrong.
