Woo hoo! We just finished the last leg of our road trip through the south. We hit up Marietta, Savannah, Asheville, and Nashville.
Over a year ago, we talked about doing this, and I told some friends and they thought I was crazy.
Living in a hotel room?
Working remote? How does one make money on the internet if they're not selling sh*t?
Too much uncertainty, right?
Yep, we figured it out, went with the flow, nothing went perfect, and it was a lot of fun.
I woke up in the mornings and taught from our hotel room, and then we had the rest of the day to do what we wanted. I didn't work as many classes as I usually do because I took the weekends off. But overall, $500 while on the road sounds pretty good to me!
I taught 50 classes total: Some days only 2 classes/1 hour total because we had a lot to do. Some days I taught up to 8 classes/4 hours total.
50 classes x $10 = $500 for 20 hours of work (and no time spent on a commute!)
Wifi was not great in our first hotel room, so I had to use the HotSpot on my phone. But Wifi was great in all other hotel rooms.
What I used to teach: my computer, a mini white board and dry erase marker, the earbuds that came with my phone, my cell phone for some photos and GIFs, a tri-fold display board to make it look like we were in a classroom and not a hotel room.
Simple, less stuff > Overcomplicated, shit we can't keep up with
(One of my students asked me how I was in all different hotels, but it looked the same for her. She was amazed when I showed her what my background really was!)
Overall, it was a great experience, and I will do again when we take our next road trip!
I mentor new teachers through the hiring process and once they get started. Only 10% of applicants are hired! (I get a small stipend for coaching you through the interviews. Don't worry. You will learn how to teach this way! It's not hard.)
If you're going on a road trip this summer or want to travel and work, this is a pretty sweet gig.
You only need a Bachelor's degree in ANYTHING. No teaching certificate is required. Seriously. Love this side gig.
