    If you can survive at the moment with your FI supporting you, I would take the risk and go per student.

    I would go with the flat rate. That way you can establish a monthy budget (that’s what I do atleast, kinda an accounting geek) and regardless of times/ enrollment you would have the pay. It’s not really guessing work- like maybe you will get paid, maybe you won’t, ya know?

    I would go flat rate too, for now. At least you will know what’s coming in. Like you said, it will help put something on your resume.

    I would go per student.

    If you can afford to live without any money coming in from you (what you are doing now), then I would go for what will put you in the best position in the long run.

    Plus, it doesn’t cound like you should have issues filling up the classes.  And it only takes getting the classes to 1/3 full before you’re making more with the per student rate than the flat rate.

    I would go with the per student rate.. You’ll be able to rely on your FI a bit less while not squashing potential to make more in the long run.

    I would go per student. Sounds like you’ll make more money that way in the long run and you can teach on your own after, without the school.
