Today's question is “How do I work in teaching sewing classes when I work full time?”
The best way to do this is to teach at night. So if you were to get home around 5:00 PM or 5:30 and then normally start cooking dinner, instead of cooking dinner, you do a sewing class.
You could do a 45-minute class. And if you started at 6:00 PM then you'd be done around 7:00 PM by the time all your students left. Then you could cook dinner which wouldn’t put you behind by too much.
Or you could decide to just do all of classes in one night. So just pick the day that you want to teach sewing classes and make that night pizza night. If you came home at 5:30 PM you could teach 3 classes at these times.
6:00 PM to 6:45 PM
7:00 PM to 7:45 PM
8:00 PM to 8:45 PM
You could also have your husband or somebody help with dinner that night.
The other option would be Saturday and Sunday mornings. Weekends work really well. You could start a class or a workshop at 10 o'clock and go 3-hours or you do 3 classes.
10:00 AM to 10:45 AM
11:00 AM to 11:45 AM
12:00 PM to 12:45 PM
Then you've got all your classes taking care of. If you have four students in each one of those classes that would be 12 students a week. And it's so part time. It doesn't matter if you're working full time, you're just working three hours or four hours and you have all those students.
So if you wanted to do classes on Sunday morning (as well as Saturday), then you could have 24 students and still only be working six hours. So it's totally doable.
You can totally work in classes when you're working full time. It just depends on your schedule. Maybe there's a day that you have off, maybe it's just Tuesdays. Then maybe you just make your classes on Tuesdays.
You've got to work it into your schedule but I'm sure there's a way that you can make it work. I know you can do it!
Anyways, I hope that that answered your question and I'll see you again in another Q & A video. Bye!
