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 could be a great way to build a small business and provide interactive Spanish learning for 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 step-by-step lesson plans and assign homework from the corresponding weekly lesson guide between classes. All the work is done for you, and you learn right along with your students!
Your material needs as the teacher are nearly the same as if you used the curriculum at home with your own children. You would need a Spanish for You! teacher package that lasts an entire school year and is reusable for $59.95 less 15% group discount $50.96.
Each family would need a curriculum package like yours that they purchase directly from our website for $39.95 less 15% group discount $33.95. Since the students each have a package like yours, when you assign the weekly homework, they already have it. You don’t have to print, copy, or distribute anything!
To find students you can talk with friends and neighbors. Create a flyer or brochure to distribute in your neighborhood, church, library, or other places with a board for posting information. Start small to get your feet wet and then grow as your expertise grows!
You have flexibility grouping students of different ages together. The Spanish for You! curriculum packages are sold for grades 3-4, 5-6, and 7-8. As an example of grouping, let’s say you have students in 4th, 6th, and 7th grade, you can use a grades 5-6 package with them all. If you are unsure what grade level package to use, you can contact me, and I can recommend a level. (Note: Grade levels of the packages do not indicate level of Spanish learning experience, but rather the age/grade of the students.)
There are many options for places to hold your classes. You could 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 a little volunteer work.
If you need support at any time, as you plan or teach your classes, or are becoming familiar with the curriculum, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am also available to speak via phone.
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!
