How to Make Money Teaching Without Getting a Job



Substitute teaching is a great way to make money teaching without being “tied to” a job. Both, public schools and private schools hire substitute teachers.

Most schools, in the United States, only require a high school diploma to get started.

Contact your local schools to find out where to apply.



Offer tutoring services if you are not interested in working a full-time schedule.

Choose the subject you’d like to teach. Decide how much you’d like to be paid per hour and then, advertise.

Let the local schools know that you are offering tutoring services, hang flyers in your local supermarket and tell all of your friends and family.

It’s that simple!

Tutor at your own home, the student’s home or even the local library.

Teach Local Enrichment Classes

Do you have a specific skill or craft that you know everything about? Make money teaching classes at your local library, at your home or even at your local college or public school.

Many public schools offer after school “enrichment” classes to students that can be taught by any expert and homeschooling parents are often looking for classes for their kids to take, too.

Unfortunately, many of the public schools in the USA are dropping important subjects like home economics, building trades, art and music.

It’s sad to see and of course, the reason comes to down to funding and money.

Instead of figuring out a way to fund it, they remove the subjects from our schools and our children lose out!

Help save these important life skills for our children by teaching courses that they need to survive.

Choose the subject you’d like to teach.

Create a curriculum based on your subject.

Decide how much you’d like to be paid per class and then, advertise.

Here’s a few ideas:

  • Arts/Crafts
  • Music
  • Building/Trades
  • Home Economics
  • Business
  • Social Media
