If you are a stay-at-home parent looking for a way to earn extra money, forming your own Spanish classes may be an opportunity. You can do this with Spanish for You! even if you don’t know Spanish. It can be a great way to build a small business and provide interactive Spanish learning for you and your children!
Spanish for You! is a curriculum for grades 3-8 that I created for use with my students. Everything I have done in my classes I have formatted into lessons and materials anyone can use. You simply teach a one-hour class each week using my lesson plans and assign homework from the corresponding week in the lesson guide between classes. All the work is done for you, and you learn right along with your students!
Learn a bit more about using Spanish for You! here. Then read a little more.
Your material needs as the teacher are the same as if you used the curriculum at home with your children just that you need a set of teacher lesson plans too. You would order an Option 1 Teacher package for $59.95.
Your students would each need a themed package for $39.95, and kids within the same family can share a package.
All materials can be found here.
To find students, talk with friends and neighbors. Create a flyer or brochure to distribute in your neighborhood, church, library, or other places. Start small to get your feet wet and then grow as your expertise grows!
There are many options for places to hold your classes. Hold small classes at your home. Community organizations sometimes have space to rent for a small fee, and some churches provide free class space in return for volunteer work.
If you have questions, you can contact me via e-mail. If you would like to speak via phone, just drop me a note so we can arrange a phone consultation.
If you have been looking for an opportunity to make extra money, you may want to give this a try. You DON’T have to know Spanish, and you DON’T have to be a teacher!
