Step #3 - Figure Out How Much You Will Charge
Hey, we are now on step number three today. You want to figure out what you will charge. So this is where you have full freedom and control over how much you think you're worth.
As sewing teacher can make anywhere from $25 to $100 per hour, depending on what age you're teaching, what projects you're teaching, and how many students you have in your class. This is where you get to have a little bit of fun with numbers and write them down if figure this all out.
Say you wanted to just charge a student $10 for a class (that's really super low), but you have to charge what you feel comfortable charging. So if you had three students in a 45 minute class and each one was giving you $10 that would be $30 an hour. That's about the lowest you'd want to charge.
Now I charge as much as $25 for a 45 minute class. So if I have three students, then I'm getting $75 an hour. If I have four students, it's $100 an hour. You might be in an area where you can charge that and if so, you can be making the same per hour as you teach.
So I want you to play around with the numbers and figure out which you feel good about charging. Also think about how many students you think you can have in one class. If you feel like you can only have one student at a time, then you want to do a different pricing model.
I would start at $25 per class with a private students. That class might only be a half an hour or it could be 45 minutes. That depends on what you want to do. But make sure that you're charging at least what you're worth. I think the base would be $25 an hour.
Now in the future, if you want to teach six students (at a time), you can always get a helper. And if you're charging each one of those students $20 it's $120 an hour and you pay a helper, maybe $20 an hour, you still come out with a $100 for teaching that class.
There's so many different ways you can figure out the numbers and find the ones that work for you. All right, that is your step for today. See you later. Bye. Bye.
