The pandemic has opened our eyes to reality that depending only on salary as a classroom teacher is not sufficient and won’t meet our daily needs.
Being an educator is a noble cause but is the payment noble enough?
During the lockdown, I discovered easy ways to make good money, working remotely (online) as an educator.
I have highlighted some of the confirmed ways to make good money from any location, as long as you have an Android phone or laptop connected to internet.
Online Job Options for Teachers
If you’re thinking about making a big change—or you’re a former teacher —one or more of these 10 work-at-home jobs for teachers might fit the bill.
1. Home- Schooling Educator
Amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, some parents are reluctant to have their children in the regular onsite school, especially preschoolers and primary school pupils.
There has been more demand for home-schooling, even in Nigeria. Why not position yourself to be a Home-school educator. You can work 2 – 3 hours a day, focusing on the core subjects and teach two families each week.
2. Online Tutor
Online tutoring can be a lucrative way to make a living from home, or pad your salary at your day job. Technologies like Skype, Zoom, and other video conferencing software have made it easier than ever to replicate an in-person tutoring session and cut out the commute.
As an organization, we have clients abroad and in Nigeria who opts for our online tutoring.
3. Language Instructor
If you are very good at teaching any language, here is your opportunity to make good money. There are fewer language instructors and the demand is high from both parents and schools. You may teach online preferably to make more money or create educational materials (videos and books).
Creating video courses in Language is easy with your android phone or laptops. Imagine using one video course for over 100 schools or families – one effort producing continuous income for you!
4. Social Media Consultant
Social media manager is one of the most highly-sought positions out there. Since 2013, the number of professionals who use the title on LinkedIn has doubled, according to a company spokeswoman. In the last decade, job postings looking for people who can fill these roles has spiked more than 1,000%.
Being a passionate educator shouldn’t limit you to the education sector. There are abounding opportunities in being a social media manager, for schools and other business enterprise. All you need is your android phone or laptop and make good money working from your comfort zone!
5. Teaching Children to Read
There is a systematic way of teaching children to read- using Jolly Phonics. Once you understand this technique, you can train other teachers in schools or individually. This can be done online or onsite.
