when I was in college (In the late late 1970’s) I paid $1.00 a page. with inflation it will be more, but it is easier now that you don’t have to start over every time you make a mistake. I would say that you should agree on a “per page” price, and agree in advance about spacing and font size.

I would ask for $8—$10 per hour. I’ve done office assistant type work before, and that’s pretty standard.

Yeah, but you make a lot of mistakes and your grammar stinks.

Charge per page. This site seems to have some good guidelines. You may need to adjust your fee depending on where you live.
