6 Legit Second Jobs For Teachers For Summer Or After School


Are you a teacher who could use a little extra money — or maybe even an income — that you earn from home?

You certainly aren’t alone. And lucky for you there are a lot of second jobs for teachers that you can do in the summer, or even after your school day!

You likely already have the necessary skills and qualifications for several different home-based jobs. Here are some ideas:

6 Legit Second Jobs For Teachers

Virtual ESL Tutoring

This is a booming industry! Tons of companies are actively seeking online tutors and teachers to work with Chinese children on their English language skills. And your teaching degrees and experience will very likely land you a job with any one of these companies.

Some good companies actively seeking teachers include LatinHire, Cambly, and iTalki.

Virtual Tutoring

There are a ton of companies that hire people to work from home tutoring students of all ages online. Many of these companies require nothing more than a college degree while some do want you to have a teaching certificate.

Some popular companies to consider include Tutor.com, and Brainfuse. I also have more online tutoring jobs listed you might consider.

Virtual Teaching

In addition to tutoring, there are also actual teaching jobs you can do from home. However, these are more location-based and you wouldn’t be able to hold down another teaching job at the same time.

Virtual teaching is like regular teaching, and it would probably have to be your full-time job.

Two companies to consider are Stride Learning and Connections Academy.

Test Scoring

Companies that hire people to score tests from home typically require that you have a minimum of a college degree and, depending on the type of test you’re scoring, it may also be necessary that you have a teaching degree, too. This is work that can pay well and can be pretty flexible.

Companies to consider include Pearson, ETS, and Write Score.

Writing

There are several companies out there actively looking for people to write educational content. Some of the companies want teachers writing for them while others aren’t as selective.

Companies to consider include eNotes, and Study.com.

I also want to point out that writing is almost always very flexible work, so it may be possible to do some of these jobs on the side while you hold down a full-time teaching job outside the home.

Selling Educational Materials

As a teacher, you may have amassed a large collection of educational materials over the years that you can sell to other teachers who might need them — things like lesson plans, worksheets, activities, and other things that you might have created yourself. These can be uploaded online and sold to others via sites like Teachers Pay Teachers.

Check FlexJobs For Even More Summer Jobs For Teachers

FlexJobs is one of my favorite sites to use for finding remote jobs and learning about new companies that hire remotely.

The great thing about FlexJobs is that they guarantee ALL listings are scam-free. They list hundreds of jobs — all of which are either remote or flexible in nature — five days per week. There are also no ads on the site.

Because there are no ads, they do charge a membership fee since that is the only way they can see a return on their job-searching efforts.

But it’s cheap — you can get access for only $2.95 for the first 14 days just to see if you think a subscription would be worth it!

If you sign up and don’t like it, it’s very easy to cancel right away so you are not billed again for the following month.

Go here to check out FlexJobs.
