While the median salary for teachers is $55,000 per year, for most teachers it is not enough especially when they have children. This makes it necessary for them to have a side job. In this article, we are going to outline to you some specific ideas that allow extra income for teachers.
You might think that extra income for teachers is all about tutoring or holding private classes in a face-to-face setting, however, the truth is that the Internet has made it possible for teachers to earn money without traveling to meet students and yet still take advantage of their teaching skills.
Did you know that there are many online classes out there that allow students to learn more outside of the brick-and-mortar classroom? Yes, there are many of them and it only takes a quick search on Google for you to find them. Take your specialty and search it on the search engine plus the words “online classes”.
Outside of online classes, you could also check test papers as there are schools out there that outsource this work. Again, a quick search online will help you find schools who are looking for outside help.
If you prefer passive income, one where you only need to work one time and the money will just keep coming in, you should write a book. But what book? Take a problem in the classroom and then write about it and offer suggestions as a teacher. Whatever specific problem you are going to write about, just make sure that you are qualified to talk about it.
The ideas we listed above are really just some of the ideas for earning extra income. There are much more, however, for your sake, we are not going to overwhelm you with information.
