If you have a background in teaching or education, you may want to check into the many earning opportunities available at eNotes. The eNotes site has been in existence since 2003, and it is currently a major online educational resource for both students and teachers.
Students can use eNotes to get homework help from actual teachers across a variety of different subjects, and teachers can use it to get advice from other teachers as well as find lesson plans and classroom activities to use in the Document Exchange section.
As mentioned above, you can also use eNotes to earn money if you have a background in education. Here are the ways you can earn:
How to Earn on eNotes
- Offering your academic expertise in the “Homework Help” section. The questions posted are asked by students and occasionally other teachers.
- Contributing original content to eNotes. They have open assignments available that you can claim.
How eNotes Makes Money
The eNotes service is not free for students or for teachers looking to purchase lesson plans or ask questions. They have monthly subscription fees that both students and teachers who use eNotes pay to get the homework and classroom help they need. This is how they make money and how they can pay you for your contributions if you sign up as an eNotes educator.
How much do you get paid for contributing?
This information has not been easy for me to come by. It isn’t posted on the eNotes site and an internet search doesn’t pull up much. However, eNotes emailed me to let me know that rates vary depending on the question value. Per question payout varies from $4 to $23.50 but averages $4-6.
Methods of pay are either check in the mail or Paypal.
How do you apply?
There is a super short form to fill out here. After you do that, you’ll have to answer three sample questions in Homework Help.
Is this open worldwide?
Yes, anyone may sign up for eNotes provided they can get paid with either a check or Paypal.
If you aren’t a teacher but you know a teacher or educator who might be interested in doing this for extra money, feel free to pass it along! Also, see this other list I made with various ways teachers can earn money from home.
