Pricing Matters

 

 A System to Set Your Price with Your Financial Security in Mind

 

Why is it so hard to determine an adequate price for your lessons?

Practical Advice for Freelance Language Teachers

Pricing Matters will appeal to upcoming teachers, but for such a wide range of knowledge, it ought to be in every teacher’s library.

This teacher resource book is not a guide on how to price your teaching services — it goes deeper than that. It’s all about self-worth for you as a teacher in a worthy profession. It’s a study of the factors that often go wrong when determining your teaching rates and prices. It’s also a motivational guide on how to overcome the internal pressures hindering teachers from finding and hitting the right ethical price before they even begin teaching their students. In the end, it’s about teachers stretching out of a personal comfort zone in order to expand their innate strengths to creating a foundation for their teaching business as well as for their own personal financial security.

What Teaching Price Should You Charge?

Janine has made a very detailed study of the problems teachers encounter, and gives brilliant solutions and vision of a way forward by thinking of teaching not as a ‘calling’, but rather as a business. It takes the novice (and experienced) teacher through the issues and problems we all encounter. It shows the wider picture of making a success of teaching as a freelance business by finding your own students, setting your hourly rates and other financial issues you need to be aware of. Whether you want to go freelancing or working for schools, it has got to be a ‘must read’ for anyone intending to make a career out of EFL teaching.

  • Work out the current price range you can (and should) charge
  • The psychological effect of your price on customers (and its influence on your teaching reputation).
  • When is the right time to raise your price (and how to raise them)?
  • How the S.T.U.D.E.N.T.S negotiating technique will raise you into being a higher paid business professional.
  • Why it’s so important you should know your Resentment Number.
  • How the Price Resistance Factor helps you calculate your prices.
  • How the Rule of 3 Fs clarifies situations when customers ask for discounts.
  • What should be covered in Work and Payment Contracts?

cover3d_Brands_1455025837

 

 The Question of Trust will clarify that trust is the hidden philosophy behind a brand and the reason why it is so important to cultivate trust if you want to survive the three-year freelance teaching service fade-out.

The aim of this short book is to identify and define a personal brand, which is so critical for survival in the freelance teaching market.

There is a lot of available information about brands and personal brands, but it is mostly generalised and not at all specific to any type of product or service. This book is different in that it is written especially for freelance language teachers.
