Tipping a Casting Instructor

For 2015, I've resolved to work on my casting. I'm lining up a casting lesson with a Master Casting Instructor. What is the standard/norm for tipping casting instructors? Thanks,

Re: 2015 Yellowstone Angler 5-Weight Shoot-Out

Re: 2015 Yellowstone Angler 5-Weight Shoot-Out

I suggested this after previous iterations of the Shoot-Out but I think it would be helpful if they allowed the rod companies to submit a line for their particular rod. I know they are striving for...
