Sliding Scale, the Bursary Fund, and financial policy.
The two countries where I predominantly teach, the UK and the US, have large financial variation among the people within them.
Thus I set a sliding scale for all of my offerings. Typically people with a little more choose to pay a little more, and people with a little less pay a little less. Within the scale you can pay what feels about right to you.
I am blessed that some of my students offer to contribute to a Bursary Fund. This is always anonymous; my assistant Dee Dean and I are the only people who know who contributes. This then helps people with very low incomes to participate. If you would like to make a contribution of any size, thank you!! Please email me at email@example.com. (I am the only person with access to this account.)
Thus we usually have beautifully diverse groups, and it could be yet more so.
Everyone seems to appreciate this. I certainly do. Thank you for all the ways that you take part.
