Q: I'm taking my first cooking class this weekend with my beau for Valentine's Day. The class is run by a few ladies — one of whom will be our teacher for the evening.
Does one typically tip a cooking teacher after the lesson, even if he or she is the owner of the business?

Editor: Tanya, wow! We have never considered this question. We have not tipped cooking instructors in the past, but it does seem like it would nice to write a thank you note by hand afterwards.
Readers, have you ever taken a cooking class? Tipping the instructor — yes or no?
