Default Tennis "school" and instructor tipping?

I started a 3 day group tennis school today and wondering what I should tip my instructor at the end? It's 5 hours a day and I'm very happy with my instructor and the overall program. It's Reed Andersen (had another instructor) in Rancho Mirage near Palm Springs/Indian Wells. Anhoo money is sort of an issue but I don't want to cheat him. thanks

Yes I'm paying the school for lessons which are quite a bit per day. I just assumed most people probably tip however it's the first time I've ever done a camp/school type environment.

I've never heard of tipping a teaching professional in any sport. Generally, it seems like tipping is appropriate when you know someone is working hard but someone else (like their employer) is making all the money and yet still paying the actual worker a pitiful wage. Examples might be waiters, cab drivers, bellhops, whatever (or actually many more jobs)

This actually could apply to some tennis acadamies now, as I've known people who go work at them and don't get paid jack. But still, I've never heard of tipping the pro
