In the last few weeks I’ve been earning some extra cash in my spare time teaching business English to an executive in the Pharmaceutical business (which is my own profession).
I’ve now been asked by a large company if I could teach some of their senior employees the same. They have asked me how much I would charge them on an hourly basis (for group and one-to-one), which leads me to my question… how much can i get away with charging them!?
Obviously this is a very specialised area of English (with its own vocab, terminology, phrases and grammar etc), which only a professional in the business would know, and I do put a fair bit of preparation work into each class. I am just a bit concerned of underpricing/overpricing myself.
If I have a group class, of say 6 students, should I charge them on a ‘per head’ basis or on a ‘per group’ basis? If the company in question had to go to an English school to get the same service, how much would that school charge them (assuming they could find a professional in this field to teach?).
Would appreciate your comments, or any other advice as to where I should go to get answer to this…
