How much is a Chemistry tutor for each level of study?

Location isn’t the only factor on the cost of Chemistry tuition. The level of study you need will also affect the price you pay.

A-Level Chemistry costs a little more than GCSE. That’s because it requires more in-depth knowledge.

Here’s a look at the different average costs for Chemistry tutors at each level:

  • GCSE — £21.33
  • IB — £21.77
  • A-Level — £22.05

What factors affect the cost of a Chemistry tutor?

As well as the two factors we’ve mentioned — location and level of study — the experience of your tutor, and the certifications they have will impact the cost of a Chemistry tutor.

A tutor who has been educated to degree level Chemistry will have a deeper knowledge of the subject, and so they can usually justify charging more for their lessons.

Perhaps more important is how much experience the tutor has with teaching. Tutoring isn’t just about teaching a list of topics and concepts, it’s about instilling a passion for the subject in your child.

A more experienced Chemistry tutor will be better at catering to your child’s needs, and can make them feel more at-ease.

It’s the 21st Century, and more and more kids are choosing to learn online. For a lot of parents, online tutoring can actually be a better alternative to face-to-face learning.

For one thing, there’s no travel involved. It means that you don’t have to spend time (and money!) ferrying your child to and from their lessons. It also means that tutors don’t have to charge for travel time. Overall, this can work out cheaper than in-person teaching.

Online tutoring can also be a more effective way of teaching your child. It means they can learn from the comfort of their own home, at a time that suits them. This improves their concentration and focus.
