At my last job I created a time clock program to make my life easier.
I gave it to a different department, too. Then, last July, I was

Programming was not part of my job description at the time.

Now a third department wants to use my program and they want a few
extra features added to it. I've been asked to come back as a contract
employee to get it set up.

I suspect this will take me a day or two, probably over the weekend. I
can't imagine this will take more than four hours.

What is an acceptable rate to charge these people?

Here's some more context: My wife works for this third department. I
sometimes work as a math tutor (high-school algebra to college
calculus) at $20/hr.

My degree is in education.

Any suggestions? I'm not going to say no, I just want to know what's
market-rate fair.
