  • §  After you have managed to open an account on Facebook, you can join various communities and groups related to teaching, parenting, and students and so on.
  • §  Once a part of those groups you can create attractive post that states that you are a teacher of a certain subject and wish to take online classes for the mentioned subject.

And even though we have these modern day technologies which will help you gain students not only from your locality but all around the world for you to continue teaching and earn a living but what matters the most is your teaching. It all depends on your teaching. If the students love your way of teaching, you are bound to get more students just by mouth to mouth advertising that would be done by the students and their parents who are already under your guidance.

Remember! In schools students don’t have a choice but listen to you as the school authorities have hired you but here in the world of Facebook and Instagram, it is the exact opposite. Here they themselves are hiring you, so you if you can’t live up to their expectations then they will stop coming to you and as a result you will lose students and won’t be able to earn money.

Thus, while teaching via online platforms one needs to be very careful and always needs to watch out if he/she is understood by the students. If the students are understanding everything you teach and is it entertaining enough for them to stay glued to your teaching?
