If you just searched for “extra income for teachers” on Google, you are most likely (we would say 100%) that you are one of those teachers out there who are feeling the pinch of inflation, and even though you earn more than most people, you could definitely benefit from having more money on the side. Well, you do not need to worry because, in this article, we are going to outline to you some ideas on extra income for teachers.
One of the most popular sources of side income right now is that of online classes. What are online classes? They are basically courses that help students with their subjects. There are two types of classes here – interactive and video. Most websites offer both and you can earn your extra income from interactive learning.
What is your specialty? What subject do you teach at school? Search for it on Google and add the words “online classes”. Most of the time, the results that come up are for students, however, if you navigate a website, you should be able to see a button that accepts applications from teachers. If not, contact the website and ask if they do.
If there are only so many hours that you can teach without feeling overwhelmed, you can always write a book. But what about? If you know anything about the education system in the country, then you already know that there are many problems that need to be addressed. Take note of the problem in your classroom and your school and see if you are qualified to write about it.
Once you are done writing, you can self-publish it. Platforms like Amazon Kindle allow you to upload your work. In order to earn money, though, you need to actively promote your book. It will take a lot of work in the beginning, however, if you are persistent and consistent, you can have passive side income where you are earning money without you doing anything.
You could also check test papers on the side. Most people do not know it, but there are actually schools out there that outsource that kind of work to others. It is highly possible that if you search for “teaching work marketplace” online, you will find websites that allow schools to post jobs.
Another extra income idea is to teach English to students in Asia, but you would need to adjust to their time.
