View Full Version : I need some feedback from teaching pros

12-23-2008, 07:39 AM
I have a question or two that I am not sure on how to ask, but i'll try. I have been working at a facility for 4 1/2 years and really like it here. The director is not exactly a person i love working for and seems to have his mind more on the bottom line than on improving tennis players. I get a very small salary, so my money is mainly from my lessons. My director takes 20% off the top which goes directly to his pocket and then the club takes 20% more off of that. After taxes, I barely take home half of what I teach. I am not sure how other clubs work and am uncomfortable in calling them and asking about their financial structure. My question is is this how most places work, or am I getting taken to the cleaners. I need some help, I feel very uncomfortable with this new financial set-up here and need to know if I should be concerned or not.

I worked 2 years at a club and kept 50% of my private lessons. You may try doing lessons outside the club.
