My School

My experiment: What if I taught software on my own?

Other businesses exist offering Apple software training:

  1. Individual Tutoring (closed now) How Lounge – $75/hr
  2. Course Structure – The Training Farm – About $1000 for 3 days
  3. Course Structure- AGI Graphics – $500- $1000 for weekend course

I made a plan for small business that serves individual instruction or tutoring. The student signs up for 1 hour lessons and pays a fee for the class. I played with the Cost Per Class, the Instructor Hourly Rate and the Utilization (the percent of hours that a student has booked.) I envision this business in lower Manhattan. Below are three different configurations:

Experiment 1:

  • Lower Cost to Customer
  • Higher Utilization
  • Lower Instructor rate
  • 1 Instructor

It would be great to rent a space like this:
