This ranges, and it’s hard to know what you mean by ‘elite’ but let’s assume you mean: independent, highly qualified, highly experienced tutors with very strong track records.

According to the BBC, ‘elite tutors’, are on ‘6-figure salaries,’ so you can imagine the per-student fee is going to be in the tens of thousands.

Those tutors, myself included are starting at $500/hour. The upper end of the range is about $1,500/hour. But there are also different arrangements: sometimes tutors will work on sliding scales (if student gains X points you pay Y, if student gains X+10 points, you pay 10Y, etc). And sometimes tutors will work on assignment basis (come live with the family for some salary for X months).

Generally, to work with an elite tutor, you should budget about $15,000-$50,000.
