French tutors work all over the world and vary greatly in terms of qualifications and experience. Consequently, it’s no surprise that the cost of French tutors varies significantly. Our research suggests that the cost per hour ranges from 15 euros to 60 euros.
The costs vary by country. For example, if you live in a country with a low cost of living such as Thailand, you may be able to find a French tutor for under 20 euros. In contrast, if you live in a country with a high cost of living, such as Switzerland, you’ll likely have to pay 30–60 euros per hour.
Of course, an online French tutor is likely to be cheaper because travel and classroom costs are non existent. For example, on LanguaTalk, French tutors typically cost between 13 and 20 euros per hour (they set their own rate).
Of course, learning 1-on-1 with an experienced French tutor is still not the cheapest way to learn. For example, you could start learning via a free app instead. But once you know a few words, nothing beats 1-on-1 French lessons with a great teacher.
