What to charge for tutor rates?

Ideas on what to charge for an hourly rate for a college-educated professional private tutor? The clientele will be mostly college-age (not high school) students and the tutoring will be in English. It's not the wealthiest canton in Switzerland, but the clientele will be well-off. My first thought was about 50 CHF/hr. Lower? Higher? Work permit is not an issue. Thanks.

If you were in Zürich, I'd tell you that rate is too low, but I don't know about Lugano.

If you're charging students you might want to lower... if you're charging working professionals I'd aim at around 80.-

Re: What to charge for tutor rates?

I think CHF 50.-- is not too much if you think, that you will have to pay social security (AHV/IV/EO) and maybe have to make also business insurances because you will be self employed or a company then. Also think about telephone costs for discusions and requests a.s.o. which has to be paid too.

Our price at awewa for private lessons (45 Min.) is between CHF 65.-- to 78.--. But with only selling private lessons we could not hold our school.

Btw. if you are not planning to be self employed please inform your students about the law that they will be counted as employer and has to make the paperwork with AHV. Information can be found at www.keine-schwarzarbeit.ch

You've got that the wrong way round, I think. The pupils would be customers paying for a service, not providing an employment, while the tutor would indeed be self-employed, even if on a part-time (Nebenerwerb) basis. The option of "not planning to be self employed" isn't available, the activity would need to be declared.

Re: What to charge for tutor rates?

Could anyone describe the process of getting the agreement (Bewilligung) from the AWA for conducting such tutoring lessons? can one hold the classes from home? Thanks in advance for useful pointers!
