As a teacher and a private tutor, my advice is to go private. These
centers such as Sylvan are paying minimal hourly rates for teachers
and charging the families a bundle. Someone (a parent) told me at
least $40 per hour is what they were paying. However, you do have
built in clients. I suggest going to schools and asking if they will
keep your name for students who request tutoring. I have charged $25
per hour/$30 per hour if teaching specialized program (wilson
reading). I know others who charge 50-80 per hour and are busy. Just
some thougths. I am in Northeast Ohio.
