I've recently raised my tuition fee. Since then I've been asked by one (Yr 10) student if I do 1/2 hour sessions because 'we could fit it into half the time' (this made me laugh - I've never yet been able to get away from her on time because she keeps asking questions at the end!). Last week another new Yr 11 student suddenly start haggling with me over the price of tuition because they'd heard from a friend that my rate was £20 per hour - (it's now £25). I raised my price a couple of months ago but kept it at the old rate for my existing students - which is why my new student's friend was paying less. I travel to the student's home and some of them are a few miles out of town so I don't think my rate is too high but I do want to feel like I'm offering good value for money and not over-charging. I can see that someone feels that they are being unfairly charged more than someone else but I also don't want to just raise my prices (for exisiting students) mid-year. The haggling did make me giggle but nobody had ever questioned my price before I raised it so I am a little bit worried - I don't want to lose business over this. Just wondering if anyone else had this problem and/or how you'd deal with it if you did? Should I just go back to my old price and leave it alone until next year - then raise it for everyone at the same time - or stick to my guns?
