I am in the process of negotiating a PT teaching gig with a local wine school in Toronto. The job is mine but I have been asked to come back with my rate. I'm at a loss for what to charge - its a once a week class of about 2 hours - the course covers general wine material. I have done dinners in the past where I charge based on number of people and level of intensity of materials to cover. What would be appropriate? Any guidance is so appreciated!
I used to do $15/hr plus 5% of ticket sales. It worked out well, because classes went up to 50 attendees for large corporate groups. Sometimes, it wasn't much if it was a smaller weekend class open to the public. However, I did bill all hours of prep, which did add up.
