We’ve all heard about side hustles, but how many of us actually have a side hustle? Sounds like a lot of work, doesn’t it? Especially considering that by its very nature a side hustle is done after-hours. Which is why you need to be passionate about your side hustle, you need to want to get stuck in once you’ve finished your work for the day, you need to look forward to getting home after work to your side hustle.
This is precisely the reason Teaching English as a Foreign Language is the best side hustle.
Not convinced? Here are 4 reasons why.
1. You can do it anywhere
Literally, anywhere. It doesn’t matter if you work in Chicago or London or Bangkok. Or if you’re traveling for work for a week in Borneo. You can either teach face-to-face in the evenings or weekends, or you can teach online from the comfort of your home. Even if there aren’t any English language learners wherever you are, you can find them online.
2. There is a huge demand for teachers
At the moment there are approximately 2 billion people wanting to learn English – and the number is growing daily. Where there are learners, there is a need for teachers. Qualifying as a TEFL teacher is a smart move right now because you are guaranteed to find a job – and you don’t even have to pound the pavements to do it.
3. The set-up costs are low
If you want to teach online, you need a reliable internet connection, a decent laptop with a microphone or headset, a quiet space to teach in, and a few bits and bobs for props for your lessons. Chances are you already have most of those already, which means you don’t need to save up to start earning. The majority of the online schools supply you with lesson plans and materials so you don’t need a lot of extra time for preparation either, so it’s easy to fit into your schedule.
4. You’ll love it
For the most part, you’re literally being paid to chat to people from all walks of life about anything and everything under the sun. Can you imagine the people you’ll meet? The conversations you’ll have? The things you’ll learn? And if you really get involved, who knows, maybe it’ll stop being a side hustle and become your main hustle. Maybe you’ll realize you were born to teach!
If you’re serious about becoming a TEFL teacher – and why wouldn’t you be? – our final piece of advice for you is to head on over to The TEFL Academy and download the World Factbook 2021. It will give you the lowdown on over 100 countries where you can teach English as a Foreign Language. In other words, they’ve done the research for you so you don’t have to. So don’t waste another minute, sign up for a TEFL course and invest in your future now.
