I will share several methods based on experience. Choose based on your preferences and skills.

Online Courses

You can start paid online courses by making video courses on the subject you are skilled in and experienced in.

There are many platforms like Udemy, Teachable, and Skillshare, where you can host your courses for free. One has to sign up on the specific platform and follow their instructions to open an account as an instructor.

You can start your online course by setting up quality video lectures and assignments. In this case, the platforms will deduct a certain amount of earnings against each earnings of your course as their service charge.

However, your income will remain the same and will not decrease.

A personal e-Learning Website

If you don't want to pay a certain amount of your earnings from the course to a third party, you can start your own e-learning website.

In this case, you need to hire an expert web developer to set up the entire website. The question may be, where can you find this expert web developer, who will create your desired website at an affordable price?

You don't have to worry about it. Because there are platforms for hiring freelance experts like Fiverr, and Upwork, where you can get experts. You tell your needs, and they will fulfill your dreams.

It may sound strange but it is true. There are many web platforms like Tutor, OneClass, PaperCoach, Toppr, and Chegg where you can earn by participating as a teacher.

Here students get their homework done by experts. In this case, you have to sign up on these sites and follow the rules.

You can enjoy being an online homework expert for your extra time. Not just homework, these platforms also pay for answering various questions.

So you too can earn by answering questions relevant to your interests.

Through Blogging

Blogging is a very popular medium now. There is no specific topic for blogging. You can write a blog on the topic of your choice.

Since you are a teacher, you can earn money by blogging about the subject you teach. For this, you have to open a blog and regularly publish your writing (posts/articles) on that blog.

You can choose to monetize your blog through various advertising platforms like Google Adsense, Mediavine, Monumetric, AdThrive, and Ezoic. These sites pay you to display ads on your blog.

By publishing videos on YouTube and Facebook

YouTube and Facebook are the popular media nowadays where we all spend more or less time of the day watching videos.

We often see ads while watching videos. And it is mainly through these advertisements that video content creators earn.

As a teacher, you have the ability to create and publish instructional videos on various topics of your choice.

When you make more money, you'll also get more online students and followers. This will make people respect you more and you'll become more successful.

All the ways shown above on how to earn extra time online as a teacher are all based on practicality and experience.

You can proceed with all or any of them if you want. Even if you don't get much response in the beginning, after one or two months you will see success. The biggest challenge is consistency. Consistency will make you successful.
