Had sex with someone I (maybe) shouldn't have. Help?

I slept with a person I have to deal with in an educational setting now and in the future - how to proceed when that kind of relationship ends up getting sexual by accident?

I (female) am taking a photography class for mostly for my own enjoyment but possibly for future professional advancement. It's being offered by an association in my town, not a college or university. A week ago, I ended up at a party with my instructor (male) and we hooked up. It was a great time. Both of us are single, so no complications in that area, thankfully.
The course isn't over for another month, and he is still pretty "friendly" with me. I could easily see doing a repeat of last week again sometime, and in fact would like to. Thing is, I am really passionate about my hobby and want to continue learning - and guess who is the only person who teaches the next level course in my area?
I should also mention he is not responsible for grading the course, only instruction (the tests are sent away to an external organization).
I am looking moreso for coping hacks for future interaction with this guy, especially should my ovaries defeat my brain once again. I'm blessed with very poor impulse control and really no moral compunction about doing this, so it could recur reasonably easily. I don't currently have any feelings for this guy outside of the physical, and I am competent and practiced at emotionally compartmentalizing where necessary sex-wise. I am generally pretty indifferent to "taking things further" with people in most cases.
Any suggestions on how to handle this, and what to watch out for? Thank you very much in advance!
