💖 How to increase your income as an English teacher – starting at zero cost…

If you can’t afford to buy all the things you need,  read on.

I’m going to show you how you can increase your teaching income using some very simple steps and the first ones won’t cost you anything!

Most teachers of English in the world are in government schools and sadly only earn around $200 or $300 per month.

Many other teachers have made the jump to teach privately and earn $2,000 to $3,000 per month.

Then there are those who really optimize what they do and earn $10,000 or more per month.

And of course there are also the superstar English teachers who bring in the millions of dollars each year!

What’s the difference between the $200 & $10,000 per month teachers?

In nearly all cases it’s skills and mindset.

For starters,  which of those teachers would you love to be?   The $200,  $2000 or $20,000 teacher?

Deciding to be a higher paid teacher is the first step.   Don’t let the “imposter syndrome” ( that little voice that says it’s not possible for you!) win.   You speak English.  You can learn to teach English better.  And you can learn to earn more from it.   It’s education,  just like we tell our students.

If you feel any of those numbers are too high for you, then you won’t take the steps to find the students who will pay them.  Similarly if you think some of those numbers are too low, you simply won’t take on any clients who pay such low fees.  Hence you stay where you are.

Similarly,  if everyone around you is telling you you can only earn a few hundred dollars per month teaching English, that is what you will earn.   Or if everyone around you is earning hundreds of thousands per year,  that’s what you will earn too.

So you need the mindset.   But not just the mindset.  You need the mindset and the skills.

(Several years ago, location used to be a factor too, but thanks to the internet that has disappeared, anyone can teach from anywhere right now!)

At Genki English we’re not only about helping you teach the best lessons ever, I also want you to keep moving up those pay scales.  

Teaching English correctly is a great job AND you should be paid handsomely for it.

Especially during the pandemic great teachers, like you,  are in HUGE demand around the world.  Average teachers, not so much.  You have to become greater each day at what you do, surround yourself with people who move you forward and also learn the right ways to succeed academically & financially for you and your students.

So to help increase your teaching income, and depending on how much your currently earn from teaching, I have four plans for you …


Step 1 is Free (!).  How to add the first $100 or $1000 to your teaching income:  

If you’re just starting out or things are really desperate, this one is for you.  It’s free.   No emails.  No money down.  It’s here on the website so you can earn your first $100 or $1000 teaching English to pay your bills and treat your kids.   You don’t get any personal attention from me but you get all the information and strategies you need to get started.  Enjoy 🙂

What’s the catch?   How can it be so valuable if I give it away for free?  

Part of it is that I’ve been there and it’s not fun when you don’t have the money you need!

Plus these days I make my money from making and selling my (amazing!) teaching materials. And if you don’t have any money you can’t buy them 🙂

So when I teach you how to earn more money first, you not only help yourself financially but hopefully you’ll see how everything works and you’ll want to buy the Genki English program for your kids and have some amazing lessons with them!

Now, most people won’t earn anything from these links.    They think “ah, it’s free, I’ll check it out later”  or they read, read, read and don’t take action.   You need to read it, do it, read it, do it and take action on each step.  If you want to get the banana you’ve got to climb the tree.   But I’ve got a good feeling about you,  I think you’ll put the work in 🙂 You can find it all here  – enjoy!

Then once you’ve made your first $100 or $1000 teaching English it’s time to move to the next level …..


Step 2  The  Professional Teacher.  How to add an extra $10,000 per year to your teaching income:

If you’ve made that first $1,000 or more teaching English (using the free ideas above or elsewhere) you’ve now earned some money and can start to invest in learning how to move up the scale.  Saving time, becoming efficient and getting more than enough income to pay your bills and expenses are the key here.

So the “How to add an extra $10,000 per year to your teaching income”  bonus course we currently offer as a bonus with the $89 per month Teacher’s Set. 

(The set costs $89 per month and shows how to earn an extra $10,000 per year teaching English,  I think that sounds like a pretty good deal, yeah?)   

Note, most people don’t actually make this much.  They read but don’t do.    They make excuses.    Make sure you are a doer who puts the training into practice and learns what works for most teachers in nearly all countries.   (If you are working in ultra low income areas then we have a separate program for you.) 

VIP members can find the “How to add an extra $10,000 per year to your teaching income”  training in the VIP menu at the top of this page.   For non-VIPs you become a VIP when you buy the Teacher’s Set exclusively here.

Then once you’ve done that …..

Step 3:  The $100k+ Teaching Business.  It’s time to aim for the $100,000+ per year group!

When you are already in the big leagues and earning 10s of $1000 per year teaching English and want to take it further,  then we have a full Genki Business Course for you.  It covers marketing, pricing, staffing, investing, everything you need on the business side of running an offline or online school or being a freelance teacher.

This one isn’t for everyone.  This is only for teachers who want to make a BIG difference and earn well from making that difference.   It covers 30 years of experience from countries right around the world and gives you a community,  a new home.   It’s always “family first/lifestyle first” and if you’re ready for it you will love how much time and energy this is going to save you as well as learning how to increase your income & social impact.


Step 4:  The top of the tree, the $1m per year superstars

If you’re nearing this level you’re more than likely using social media to its full advantage and/or you have expanded your school into several locations.   For this level you need personalized help and professional guidance so do get in touch about the coaching and consulting services we provide.


Let’s get you paid very well for doing some amazing teaching!

I am going to help you teach some amazing lessons and, if you let me, I’m also going to show you how to be paid very well for all the work you do, especially in the current crazy environment!

So pick your program above and off we go!

Be genki,

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. And when I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. So I'm sharing it all with you now...
