Professional tutors who are associated with companies can charge in the neighborhood of $100 or more per hour. You could charge $50-$60 (which is realistically the most that you'd be making working for one of these companies), or maybe even a bit more, give your classmates a deal, and still clean up on your own.

...But you should also make sure that you know how to tutor. Merely being a good test taker doesn't qualify you to help others improve their scores :D

I agree that there is a big difference between doing well on the test andhelping others do well. You need to make sure you can communicate the concepts on clear terms to those who may have little to no clue. Its not as easy as it sounds. I would venture to guess that the vast majority of high scorers couldn't convey the information to one who is just starting. Make sure you can before charging $$ for it. Btw, I charge based on my client's situation. If it is a kid right out of school without much $$ im happy to charge less than 50. But if someone is a bit older and looks like they can afford it, I charge around 50.

Charge enough to just barely fill up your schedule. In small markets where there's not a lot of demand for LSAT prep, you can't charge much if you want more than a handful of students.

Also, echo the comments about good test-taker =/= good tutor. You might want to do a few freebies to see if you've got a knack for it.

You could probably get away with $25-$30 per hour.

+1. I would not, as an undergraduate student, be willing to give you anywhere near $50/hr, especially if you have zero experience actually tutoring for the LSAT.

Try to find students who have already paid $100+ per hour to one of the big companies. They'll be happy to dish out $50. The big test prep companies are a little outrageous in their fees, so if you are any good at tutoring there should be some undergrads who would be glad to pay at least $35.

why don't you start at 25-30 an hour like the other guy said? then after you get a "feel" for it and see if you're a capable of teaching, up your rates to 40-60 (depending on your area).

If you're planning on doing this for a while, you should tutor for 25-30, and either up your rates or apply for a position at a company. It's hard to get a position at a company without experience, so I'd start tutoring first.
