					Possible Tutoring Rates As An Employment For Retired Teachers

Employment for retired teachers is a hot topic today. Pondering that each year,
hundreds of our old instructors would obviously leave school because it is
required due to their retiring age. However, retirement for some would be a
dead end. It is at this point in time that they can’t do anything and simply wait at
home with nothing that occupies them. And obviously this is something that are
not accustomed to.

Despite all these, there is still hope for our retired teachers. In fact, even if they
can no longer work as a teacher inside an academe, they can still resort to other
simple tasks. A good example is doing tutoring. This is one easy job that can be
done by our retired mentors. This is really convenient and appropriate for them
since it is still lecturing and educating. However, the problem lies in dictating
their probable rate or just how much they should charge for one tutoring
session. If ever you                                         are wondering exactly
how, here are some                                           guidelines that can
help you draw such a                                         decision.

Guide 1: Credentials.                                     The first thing you
need to do depending                                      on the type of
mentoring would be                                        to     identify your
credentials. As far as                                    possible this reality
dictates how much                                         you must charge.
Take, for example,                                        your salary in all
academic        circles                                   would be dependent
on the level of                                           education acquired,
seminars     attended,                                    citations and awards.
Therefore, if you have a doctorate in that field your tutoring rate would be
possibly higher if we are to compare when you have a college degree.

Guide 2: Cost of living. Another important issue that must be considered that can
dictate your possible tutoring rate would be the cost of living in the area you are
residing. In fact, you can’t charge a higher amount if the community where the
individuals are just earning in average in terms of income. However, if you live in
an exclusive community better aim high in terms of your rate and it must be
something higher than the usual. It is also in this guide where you can dictate
whether you would pursue an hourly rate or a monthly one.

Guide 3: The subject. The last possible guide that can outline your tutoring price
would be the difficulty of the subject you would be handling. If it is mere simple
mathematics in elementary like raw numbers and operations, then you can just
charge an ample amount. However, if the topic to be discussed and addressed
would be statistics in the college or possibly graduate level, then you should
charge more than the usual. Another thing to note here would be the student's
level. If you are mentoring students at the university where subjects are difficult,
it would be really obvious to ask for a fair high price.
These are just some guidelines, which can help you determine the amount to
gauge in your tutoring sessions. As much as possible, consider these areas so you
can get a better price in line with your knowledge, but not that expensive.
Tutoring as an employment for retired teachers is truly fruitful and rewarding.
