I have an after school arts club that meets once a week for an hour and a
half. Compensation is determined by whatever fee I ask for, paid directly
to me by the parents. My school will also collect the money for me and
deliver to my mailbox through the front office, when the children's parents
send it to school and the child gives it to their teacher or to the front
office. This seems to be a common practice here in Phoenix.

I couldn't do the club without compensation, just because of time factors
and money, but I sure enjoy it and it's well worth it if I plan my time
carefully. I have many kids who have been "regulars" all year long (I
charge for five meetings per session, $20 for the first child in a family,
$10 for siblings).
