Private Tutoring Fees - $30 to $150 per session
Whatever type of school you choose, you can supplement your child’s learning with private tutoring. This can range in price from $30 to $150 per hour, and can be offered as needed or on a regular basis (weekly in term time is the most common configuration). You can go through individuals or a company, and you can explore individual or group learning or a hybrid of any of these options.
The difference in price in individual private tutoring tends to reflect the skills and experience of the tutor and the resources they have available. A younger tutor who is in the senior years of high school or fresh out of school is likely to charge at the lower end of the fee range while a qualified and experienced teacher who may specialise in supplementary tutoring will cost markedly more.

You’ll find a range of prices between and within private tutoring companies based on several factors including:
- size of the group
- age of the student
- packaged purchases
- subject area, and
- international examination preparation
Considering private tutoring as an alternative or supplement to private school fees?
Private tutoring is an accessible and flexible alternative to, or supplement for, ever-increasing school fees. Tutoring comes with many benefits, for students who attend all types of schools, including:
- learning tailored to the student’s personal and changing needs
- building educational relationships beyond school and home
- growing confidence in study skills and curriculum content, and
- support for the whole family in deciphering school-speak, setting goals and measuring learning success on the students’ own terms
No matter which path you choose, your child will always have their own individual skills, experiences and frustrations. Private tutoring ensures that they get one-on-one, personalised education that is as unique as they are. Australia Talks 2021 has found that while parent satisfaction with education in Australia varies across the many sectors, no one is completely satisfied with how their child is learning in school. Private tutoring can radically increase student and parent satisfaction with the learning experience and the results speak for themselves;
