Pricing and Payments:
How much can I charge for private tutoring, live classes, or selling my educational content (lesson plans, self guided courses)?
I. You set your own prices. We suggest setting your prices according to the complexity of your content, the demand of subject area, the income demographic of your students/client base, and ultimately the value of your time.
For example, you tutor and teach Calculus, this is a complex subject and classes/tutoring sessions should be priced higher than English (ESL) courses which are not as complex. (See Charts A and B)
Chart A: Charge different prices according to content/subject level
Chart B: Charge different prices according to complexity and demand of subject
II. Also Pricing for Class sessions (more than one student) and One-on-One Tutoring sessions should be different. One-on-One sessions should be priced higher than classes that have more than two or more students because of the level of individual attention a student/client can receive. The more students in a session the lower an individual student should be charged.
III. These are only pricing suggestions and not requirements. You set your own prices.
