Website Where I Can Teach O And A Level Math And Physics For Decent Pay? by Nobody: 3:54pm On Jul 14, 2017
I started freelancing to make money and I work on GoTranscript.com as an audio transcriber but its almost like slavery- I transcribe 10 minute files @ $2:33 per file. At a glance that might seem like a very wonderful job, but if you start work you'll realize that it takes up to an hour+ to transcribe one file while still maintaining a 92%+ accuracy rate. The files are full of interference/noise, the speakers have heavily accented English, etc. And you don't get paid for any accuracy rate below that.

So, I thought about utilizing skills that I actually have- I'm an undergraduate but I have an in-depth understanding of O and A level Mathematics and Physics and can break it down into the most basic form for students to understand. I have experience as a tutor and an assistant teacher. I can write articles as well.

I created a profile on Upwork and submitted it for review but it wasn't accepted. There are also a lot of hidden 'fees' everywhere. I have to pay to get 'connects' to apply for all the jobs in my field, and I'm not even allowed to submit proposals because apparently I don't have the required skills in my profile as far as they're concerned. I keep getting pop-ups to pay for some 'premium plan' but I don't understand why I should pay to earn money, I really don't understand how that works. If i eventually squeeze out money and pay for everything they throw at me, what happens when I don't get enough jobs to balance out my costs and make a decent profit?

On Freelancer, I don't know what happened, have I been banned? I created a new profile and now whenever I want to access the site I get '403 forbidden'. I didn't even do anything.

So PLEASE does anyone know of anywhere I can earn something decent with the skills I stated above? Or are they truly insufficient?

hahn you should have an idea on this.

You might have to approach tutorial centres in your neighborhood, tell them what youcan do, they would set up an interview, blast it and you​ are in. I hope this helps.

Hi, thanks for your suggestion. But I have a day job as an intern that keeps me out from 6 am to 6pm. And I'll be back in school by September. I sort of need something I can do consistently and continuously, after work each day and also when I'm back in school

Thanks boss

@ AnonyNymous, you should think outside the box and a little bit bigger

Instead of just registering on freelance websites that already have so much competition you have to work against, build your own website for your writing and create packages and plans that clients can subscribe to and promote your site via seo, paid ads, fb groups etc

If you cannot afford to hire someone to build a site for you, learn how to build it yourself. Wordpress has made web building easy for beginners.

If you cannot afford to build a site, start with a blog. It is free

Hope this helps. You can always ask further questions if you have any

Thank you so much for your response. I think this is a really great idea but I have some concerns. My area of expertise is quite narrow. I'm a civil engineering undergraduate so I obviously have learned much more but I'm only confident enough to teach/write a textbook on O'level Math and Physics. Won't it affect me? As in how narrow the scope of the website is?

Once I make time to begin building the website/blog, (I have to do it myself because I'm short on funds) I'd like to show it to you to review.

Also, could you make an estimate of how long I have to spend before I actually start to see anything reasonable coming out from it? A major concern I have is that there are just soooo many learning websites like that. Its almost like the market is saturated.

Then you have to widen it. Read more, learn something new

I'm a civil engineering undergraduate so I obviously have learned much more but I'm only confident enough to teach/write a textbook on O'level Math and Physics. Won't it affect me? As in how narrow the scope of the website is?

Start with what you have. With time you will be able to add more. You can create tutorials and people can pay to subscribe and watch videos on different topics. You can break down the lecture into 30 - 60 days and clients will have to log in daily to learn something new. You can even add your own tests to know how your students are fairing.

Once I make time to begin building the website/blog, (I have to do it myself because I'm short on funds) I'd like to show it to you to review.

You can add me on whatsapp @ +234-8092960741. I will be glad to help you out with each step and share my own knowledge with you. We can also share ideas etc. I love helping younger people out however I can.

Also, could you make an estimate of how long I have to spend before I actually start to see anything reasonable coming out from it? A major concern I have is that there are just soooo many learning websites like that. Its almost like the market is saturated.

Well, I cannot give an estimated time but you have to ask yourself "can I do this without getting paid?" If your answer is yes then your passion will push you and your business to success. Concentrate on building something sustainable. Profits will come. Trust me

The fact that you have competition is actually a plus. Study your competition. Learn what they do and what they are not doing. Read reviews and read their customers complaints. Whatever their customers complain about might be what you need to add to your business to get those clients.

Focus on reaching your own customer base. If you can have 100 subscribers and you earn N1,000 monthly from each of them that is N100,000 income. As long as your services are legit and well packaged you will have returning customers and referrals.

It is really all about consistency, persistence and passion.

Anything is achievable. You just have to be confident that you can achieve it

Do you think it'd be more profitable to make a YouTube channel instead? From your experience, which does better, YouTube channels or Blogs?

Can you explain how the ads work on youtube.
Not everytime i watch videos that ads appear, what are the chances of getting ads displayed to 90% of viewers for a particular channel?

Ya, thanks, i know about monetizing uploads.
But assuming you have a monetized video with 10000 viewers, what are the chances of all or a higher number seeing ads.
I've observed when i use different browsers or systems to watch past videos i've seen before or those of my subscribers(that i'm sure monetize everytime) that sometimes i dont get to see ads.

This means not all your viewers per video will generate your income per video, so i just want to know your opinion towards this.

I don't know how that works. Honestly

And my initial idea on this thread is to charge subscription fees for the tutorials on the website. I am more savvy with that idea

What are the cheapest ways of getting traffic, are fiverr gigs for traffic also efficient?

Let us assume you need people to subscribe to your service, it will be a waste of time to have lots of traffic and no subscriptions. SEO and paid traffic like FB ads and other ad networks is better as they convert more into sales or clicks or whatever it is you need from your visitors
