What is a reasonable amount to charge for a limudei kodesh tutoring/learning service in an upscale neighborhood? What would you be willing to pay for 1/2 an hour and a full hour… once a week. Tutoring is done at your house at your convenience.September 9, 2012 7:32 pm at 7:32 pm #896680

We pay $50/hour for ivrit tutoring in Brooklyn. We go to the teacher’s house, though.September 11, 2012 3:18 pm at 3:18 pm #896687WolfishMusingsParticipant
When I teach laining, I usually let them pay me whatever they want. But that’s only because I’m very unassertive and don’t feel very confident in charging for my services.
It also helps that I enjoy private teaching and am usually willing to do it for free anyway, so if I don’t get paid, it’s not a huge deal.
I understand this may not apply to your situation.

Honestly, it depends how old you are and why you’re doing this. If you actually need a supplemental Parnassah then it depends on what people want to pay. But if you’re just a younger guy looking for some money, this isn’t the way to do it. It’s probably not even Muttar to charge more than minimum wage, unless you are tutoring younger kids in which case you can charge normal babysitting rates.

Sam: Why is it a halachic problem for a younger guy to charge the same rate as an older guy?September 11, 2012 4:38 pm at 4:38 pm #896690Sam2Participant
Shein: If you actually do it as a real Parnassah there’s more room to be Meikil and that the Zman Batalah of someone who has to support a family is more. Also, you can call part of the fee Tzeddaka. But technically it’s Assur to charge for teaching no matter what.September 12, 2012 7:55 pm at 7:55 pm #896691
It’s a service done on the side, somewhat of a part time job… just wanted to get a range and an idea of what people charge and pay. Thanks!September 12, 2012 8:26 pm at 8:26 pm #896692WolfishMusingsParticipant

So, if someone tells me that they won’t use me unless I agree to accept payment (and, yes, that has happened), are they transgressing “lifnei iver?”

Id say if you are unqaulified, About 30$ an hour
If your qualified, the going rate for private tutoring is 55$ an hour.
