So. You’ve decided you want to make a bit of extra money, and you’ve realised that HowNow is the way to do that. You love the idea of e-meeting people from all over the world online. You want to teach, and you can’t wait to start inspiring people. However, you’re not quite sure where to start.
So what should you teach?
For some people, the answer to that question will come straight away. We’re all very happy for you and your confidence in your skills and expertise. But if you’re not sure what you should be calling yourself an ‘expert’ in, that doesn’t mean you can’t get involved.
The first thing to mention is the fact that, as long as you’re open in your class description, you don’t have to have an actual qualification in the subject you want to teach. If we’re honest, we’re way more interested in real-life experience than certificates. So what are skills or specialist subjects? Maybe you can make a cake worthy of any Bake Off. Perhaps you live in a tourist hotspots, and can teach people from other countries what life is like in your city. You might be brilliant at Photoshop. All of those are valid. Try making a list of everything you know a lot about, and everything you like to do in your spare time. You’ll probably find there’s something there.
Some skills are less tangible. Maybe you work in an office all day and are fantastic at dealing with people from all walks of life. Guess what? That’s something lots of people would like to learn. Maybe you have a lot of self-confidence. Therefore, you might be confident enough to believe you could teach other people to feel the same way. Go for it. You could be a productivity ninja with wisdom to impart. We’ll be first in line. Ultimately, as long as you can plan a lesson around your skill, we’d love to have you on board.
What we’re trying to say is that, with HowNow, the world is kind of your oyster. You don’t need a fancy teaching qualification to call yourself an Expert, and you don’t even have to be practicing what you preach full time. All you need is a plan, a spare hour of an evening or weekend, and something to share.
We’ll do the rest.
