Correcting essays - price?
 
Hi, A pupil of mine has asked me to correct a few essays every week - just correct them. She īs preparing Trinity ISE II. The thing is I don īt know how much I should charge her. Any idea? Thanks

I don īt think it īs ethical to accept money from your student, even if it isn īt related to your class.

I had a pupil who asked me to do this. I just charged my usual home teaching hourly rate divided by the amount of time it took to mark the essay. So at 15 minutes per essay, charge 1/4 of your normal hourly rate. If you usually add petrol costs or lesson preparation costs into your hourly teaching rate, factor it out.

That sounds fair. Thanks. Olga

I would rather find another person to do it than charge my own pupil. It just wouldn īt feel right.
