I am a graduate student considering tutoring another student in a challenging graduate level statistics course. What is a reasonable hourly rate to charge? This is a public university in the United States.

Any rate you can get the student you're tutoring to agree to is a fair hourly rate. I've charged up to $80/hr for tutoring students in the US in the past (usually that rate paid for by a small group). I've also tutored friends for just dinner or some beers. Just make sure both parties agree, probably best over email or something with a paper trail.


Personally, under such a circumstance, I think it is fair to charge at least $30/hour. Going over this really depends on the student's ability to pay higher rates.
