We are in Illinois and are thinking about this.
Currently, our peer tutors make $10.00 per hour. The rate of pay has been this for several years now. This will be the minimum wage beginning 7/1/2020.
The next level of tutor (here for a year or have an Associate’s degree), makes $15.26 per hour. The third level, those with Bachelor’s degrees, make $19.62 per hour.
We’re trying to level off the highest paid tutors so that differences between rates of pay stays relatively the same as the minimum wage goes up over the upcoming years. Come 1/1/2025, the minimum wage will be $15.00, close to what our Tutor II level is now.
Lots of discussions with the Dean.
We have tutors in our department that are student workers and then another group that don’t qualify to be student workers because they either are not taking classes at our school or they already have their Bachelor’s Degrees. Recently, Illinois raised the minimum wage; and because of that our school raised pay for the student workers. They actually raised their pay by a lot and now I have tutors with their Bachelor’s Degrees getting less pay per hour than the student workers who don’t even have their Associate’s. We want to try to fix this. How do other Tutoring Centers decide how much their tutors will be compensated?
