Teaching Fee

Putting a Price on Human Talent

The fee is our basic freelance rate, or the cost of an educator’s effort per unit of work. Think of it as our most basic product: human talent. Different services have different base rates to reflect the expertise, time, and resources we bring into your project.

In the world of teaching, we measure our rates in euros per unit. That’s typically 45 minutes of lesson time, although you can scale the unit to any amount of time.

If these conventions don’t appeal to you, we’re open to alternative billing models. Simply reach out to us to discuss the details.

Lesson Units

Pay for Lessons, Get the Full Package

The scope of a teaching project is the number of lesson units (LU) used for invoicing. It covers lesson prep, teaching, notes, and everything in between.

You may also want to book additional services such as on-site assessments or accredited certificates. Any extra costs are detailed in our proposal. Expand the “Extra Services” section below to learn more.

What Are My Options?

Different formats have different requirements. You might decide to run a weekly 90-minute course for six months (48 LU). Or perhaps you’re looking for a one-day seminar on a particular subject (8 LU). For university programs, the scope follows your module workload, which may range from as low as 30 LU all the way up to 120 LU.

We work closely with our clients to find the ideal scope for their educational projects. Tell us your goals and we can recommend the most effective program for your learners. Of course, the final decision is all yours.


What’s in the Standard Package?

Our freelance rates cover the cost of a complete learning experience, including:

  • In-house and/or online teaching
  • Complete course curriculum
  • Lesson preparation
  • Lesson notes
  • Access to relevant course material

Third-Party Products on Demand

Some services exceed the scope of our basic fee, either because they rely on third-party products or because they require an investment from us. As part of a broader package, we offer add-on services at attractive rates:

  • On-site assessment tests for first-time participants
  • Formally graded examinations or project work
  • Language certificates such as TOEIC or WiDaF
  • Long-distance travel
