Here at Albuquerque Technical Vocational Institute, we have mostly paid,
professional tutors, rather than student tutors.  The going rate here is
$8.50 per hour.  There are no merit raises here, only an across the board
percentage raise each year (if we're lucky!) We have tutors like me who
have a heap of writing experience but who are still working on their
degrees, to folks who have graduate degrees.  (Yes, folks, the market is
tight!)  Usually our more highly degreed folks are lured away by the
enormous sum of $22.00/hr they can earn teaching part-time.  As tutors go,
I think our institute is one of the better paying ones (promise you won't
tell our president that, or he'll chop our wages quicker than you can say
"We need a raise!"

I'll be interested to find out what everyone else gets, too.
