How to increase your income as an English teacher

Most teachers of English in the world are in government schools and sadly only earn a $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 them?

In nearly all cases it’s skills and mindset.

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.

And similarly if you don’t have the teaching or business skills you won’t be able to move up the ranks.

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

At Genki English we’re not only about helping you have 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 and also need to know 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 three plans for you:


Step 1 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 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 I afford to give away something so valuable for free?  Well, I’ve been there, it’s not fun.   The less stressed you are about money the better you teach and I want better teaching for all kids.     How do I pay for it?  Well, once you’ve earned that extra few $100 or few $1000 you’ll hopefully want to join the paid programs below to learn how to move up to the  $10,000 level or maybe even want more personal attention to help earn $100,000 teaching English.  There’s no pressure there, it’s up to you and how much you want to earn.   That should allow us to keep these starter ideas sustainable for free and help you as you grow.    Just make sure you earn that first $100 or $1000 first! 🙂

NOTE:   Most people don’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! 


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 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, efficiency 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 $497 Teacher’s Set. 

(The set costs $497 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.


Step 3:  The $100k Teaching Business.  Then once you’ve learnt everything there,  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 the full Genki Business Course is for you.   This 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 a community,  a new home.   It’s always “family first/lifestyle first” and you’re going to *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.

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...
