What is the difference between private tutoring and private tuition?
Comments  
There's no real difference.
Private tutoring means "one on one" teaching.
I don't remember ever come across the term " private tuition". Tutition is the amount of money a school or learning institution charges the students. e.g. College tuition is going up every year.

The word 'tuition' has two meanings.

1 : money that is paid to a school for the right to study there
▪ Her uncle agreed to pay part of her tuition. ▪ There's going to be a tuition increase next year. ▪ tuition fees

2 formal : teaching that is done especially for a single person or small group
▪ Before the company transferred her to Mexico, they offered her private tuition in Spanish.

As an American, I use tuition exclusively in the context of money paid for instruction.
I have never heard it used in the US as meaning "education," "instruction" or classes.

I've never heard the word used to mean fees. We would say 'tuition fees' when referring to the money paid for tuition. I know this is an old thread, but I came here wondering why a proof reader had crossed out tuition and replaced it with tutoring when they mean essentially the same thing.
Now I know: She's American and I'm English.

Here in N.America, tutoring is much more commonly used. My inlaws from Singapore use the word tuition for what we would use as tutoring.

In India it is common for students to go to tuition class after school.
