Dear Reader, Teaching has been a time honored tradition for hundreds of years. Whether you want to pursue a career in teaching or you wish to volunteer your time as a teacher, it is important to learn key techniques which can improve your teaching abilities. Without the right tools and information, it could take you years and cost you a small fortune to discover the secrets to teaching. Instead of spending a fortune on so-called experts or knocking yourself out with the old trial and error method, there is an easier way to be the teacher you have always dreamed of. Now theres good news .... I wont deny that there are a ton of books out there on teaching. Unfortunately the problem with most books on the subject of teaching is that they are either filled with plenty of promises and no solid techniques and strategies to back up those promises or they contain only one or two pieces of useful information and not a comprehensive look at everything you need to know to succeed in teaching. Introducing The Teachers Guide! Teachers Guide breaks the mold of all the other teaching books and manuals you have heard and read about. It presents solid, proven steps to help you learn how to be the teacher youve always wanted. Sounds too good to be true? Its not and I can prove it with Teachers Guide! But, first a word of introduction. My name is Dan. A few years ago I found myself in a situation not too different from your own. Like almost everyone else, I longed to be a better teacher, but I had no idea where to start! None of the books I had read on teaching had been able to solve my problem. Some of them were so mired down in fancy words and technicalities that it was a miracle I ever got past the first chapter! Others might have passed on a helpful hint or two, but did not solve my problems. Thats when it hit me! If I couldnt find a comprehensive guide on teaching, then why not create my own? I was tired of flipping back and forth through tons of books for the few bits of information that could help me; but I reasoned that if I put all those little tidbits of info together then I might actually be able to begin understanding the secrets to teaching. The next morning I furiously began to read through all of the teaching books that I had purchased over the past three years and take down the pertinent notes. I didnt stop there either. I swallowed my pride and enlisted the help of people that I knew who had been personally successful in teaching. It took awhile to sort through all of the information I had gathered and compile the notes I received from the experts I consulted, but when I was finished I sat back and was completely stunned. Right here in front of me was the information that I had been seeking all along! From the notes I had taken from several articles on the subject of teaching, as well as my own experiments, I had comprised a comprehensive compendium on the subject of teaching. I sat back in stunned amazement! It was all there! The Work of the Teacher How to Stimulate Thinking The Importance of Play in Education Classroom Lessons The Importance of Individual Differences How to Cultivate Moral Attitudes Then I decided to try an experiment and put all of my hard work to the test. The next morning I awoke with new determination. This time I would not fail! Suddenly, I was excited! I absolutely could not believe the difference. Suddenly it was all so clear! I could easily implement proven strategies without having to wade through a mountain of fancy words and difficult to understand terms. What happened next was nothing short of amazing! These strategies not only worked, but the results were completely astonishing. As my success with teaching grew, I started to feel guilty. I knew there were a lot more people out there who wanted the same solutions I had found. Somehow, it just didnt seem right to keep it to myself. One night as I made some changes to my book, I wondered how many other people might have the same problem? After all, if I couldnt find a decent comprehensive teaching manual, what were the chances anyone else could? Given the tremendous success I had encountered using my manual; I was sure that other people could take the same easy to read and understands strategies and achieve success as well. Right now youre probably thinking, Yeah, right. Theres a ton of teaching books out there. What makes you and your book so different? I wont deny for a minute that there are some good teaching books out there-after all Ive read most of them, if not all of them. The difference, however; is that my book blows all the others out of the water because it doesnt just focus on one area of the game. You get everything you need to understand how to teach successfully. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is left out. All the fundamentals are there. And thats just a small taste of what you will get when you order the Teachers Guide Absolutely everything anyone would ever need to learn how to successfully teach is contained within this impressive work. Okay, Im sold, but whats this incredible resource going to cost me? When I first began to think about putting my manual on the market, my first thought was to create a seminar where people could actually get the benefits in a hands-on way. I know not everyone loves to read, so that seemed to be a great solution. But, I quickly realized how time consuming that would be for everyone so instead, I decided I wanted as many people as possible to reap the benefits of this fabulous manual. So, Im willing to slash the cost just so you can take advantage of the incredible information within Teachers Guide.

6 Second Income Options for African teachers

Generally speaking, teachers are poorly remunerated even in most advanced climes. But the issue of poor remuneration seems more prominent in Africa and other Third world countries.

Unfortunately, this trend is not likely to be corrected in the near future.

African teachers are going through the eyes of the needle to make ends meet, which makes the beautiful job of teaching looks frustrating for many teachers these days.

What then should teachers do?


That is not an option. We should think out of the box.

All we need as teachers is a second income to augment our take home pay that never takes any one home.


Here are 6 second income options that can help add to teachers income without distracting them from the real job of teaching:


I have already written an article on how to start and succeed as a teacher-blogger (You can check it out here).

Blogging is of course one of the easiest ways teachers can add to their periodic income.

I still insist that as a newbie blogger, you start with a free platform(I recommend either Blogger or Wordpress, but I always insist you start with Blogger).

By the time you start making a mark, do not hesitate to go for a custom domain. There are lots of inherent advantages in doing that.

In search of one of the best Nigeria-based hosting/domain service, GO HERE...

With a free platform, how do you now make money blogging?

I give you three easy options:

-         Register with either of Adsense, Chitika, Infolinks, etc. and have them share ads on your site and your earn either by Pay-Per-Click (PPC) or Pay-Per-Impression (PPM) or even PPA. The only challenge here is that most of these sites hardly approve your application except your site is rich with quality contents and also have huge real-time traffic. So you need to take time and make your site a hot spot for traffic before attempting to benefit from any one of them.

-         Register free with some online companies that run affiliate programs. All you need to do is place their banners on your sites and earn when your site visitors click through your banner link to visit their sites. I have earned so much from companies like Jumia, Konga Affiliate , Kaymu Affiliate, SFI Online Store (there are many of them, just search for them on Google) using these methods. 

You should however not fill your site with affiliate banners excessively as this can irritate site visitors who now see you as a money-monger.

-         Another way to make money with your blog is by attaching a page or link on your blog that indicates any service you can render, such as updating a blog site, translating scripts to a particular language, any other service you can think of. You can easily get hired and be paid for it.

There are of course many other ways to monetize your free blogging site.

Writing books

You can write your book as either a hard copy to be sold offline or as a soft copy in form of e-book to be sold online.

Whichever one you choose, one of the core issues here is coming up with a quality and original content. You are a seasoned teacher, let the world know of your stuff.

Now let me guide you.

Writing a hard copy could be the best option for you considering the fact that here in Africa, most people who fall into our target market are not tech savvy persons. In fact, we are still so backward that over 80% of African populace is both skeptical and resistant to purchasing online.

Hence, if you write an e-book on a topic that has a regional target, you might find it difficult selling it.

Aside that little advantage of hard copy over e-book as explained in the foregoing, e-book remains the best for you.

While you can sell your e-book through your blog site, it’s very difficult to do that with a hard copy text.

Secondly, you will hardly find publishing companies that will agree to publish your work free and then recoup after sales, but there are lots of online places where you can publish your work free (You can try I am using it).

With your e-book, you have the global market at your reach as anybody from any part of the world can order for your e-book and also pay online at a simple click of the button.

Moreover, with e-book, you make money over and over again. Let me expatiate on this.

A 250-page hard copy text might not be sold for anything above $2(convert to your local currency). Hence if you want to make say, $2000 from it, you need up to 1000 copies. Now think of the cost of storing and carriage of such materials. It can as well get destroyed by rain or fire, get stolen or eaten up by insects. The list is endless.

On the other hand, with e-book, a 100-page material can sell nothing less than $10. And you know what? You write it once, even if one million persons order for it. It’s never affected by rain or fire outbreak. So much benefits. Hence, I recommend you start with an e-book, while not ruling out the place of hard copy texts.

By the time you finish writing and publishing, get it into the market.

For e-books, social media and forums are your ready markets.

If you’ve written a hard copy text, you can liaise with your school owner to sell to your colleagues and students, especially if it is an academic work. You can as well visit other schools to sell your work and make money.

Public speaking

Another source of second income for African teachers is public speaking.

For this to be effective, I suggest teachers work as a team. Let there be a team of between 2 to 5 teachers of like mind, coming together to form a public speaking group in their area of expertise.

How do you start?

When you must have formed the team, get your contents together and review them. Take time to read articles on how professionals do it. I will suggest you start with your school.

Meet with your school head and share your passion. Request that you be given chance to organize a talk with teachers or general staff on a particular area. You can as well request to organize a seminar for parents, where you showcase your ingenuity (you’re already marketing yourself).

Next, you need a broader reach. So how do you do it? Visit your local TV or Radio station and book a space for weekly talk on your area of expertise. You must not fail here, because from here you could be hired to start speaking to organizational workers and you’re paid for it.

Another way is to organize seminars for teachers under a registered outfit (people have regard for credibility) and start by charging small fees. By the time you become a brand in the game, you can make real money charging higher fees as well as getting sponsors for your training programs.

You see public speaking is a great option for teachers to make money.

Affiliate marketing (offline)

I have discussed briefly on affiliate marketing under blogging. But that has to do with online stuff.

Here, I am talking of African teachers embracing affiliate marketing in a traditional sense.

I have to point out here that this usually work effectively where the school management team and fellow teachers are very cooperative and free from envy and jealousy.

How do you go about it?

School children need a lot of learning materials, which their parents buy outside regularly. Your colleagues also buy wears, mobile phones, electronics and other essentials.

You can visit some local businesses and strike a deal to help them sell on the standard price to your potential customers, while they pay you commission. You also make money by adding a little profit margin on the standard rate.

There are many offline businesses that are into affiliate marketing. I remember once making a sales of over Four Hundred Thousand Naira (#400000) for an Affiliate company to my former school within a space of two weeks.

I also sold electronics and mobiles to my colleagues then. One of my colleagues was selling wears to all of us; the other one sold perfume, while two others were selling food stuff.

Wow! You say!

Yes! We were patronizing one another just to augment our salary. One good thing was that it did not affect our classroom delivery; hence our school director did not kick against it.

It works, you can try it.

Home lessons

Already many teachers are doing this. But you need to be more effective to make it work. Usually, many teachers engage in home lessons that pay on monthly basis.

The problem with this type of payment system is that parents can cite different reasons why they would not live up to the bargain at the end of the month- something like the teacher missing out in one of the agreed dates, or parents not having been paid their own salaries too, and so have no way to pay.

Hence, it is always a better idea to arrange payment with parents on an hourly basis.

However, whichever one works for you, carry on with that. But make sure you’re adding to your regular income through home lesson, at least in a healthy way that would not affect your health and primary assignment.


Where the school management is not against it, teachers should be encouraged to pull resources together and go into co-operative.

In my former school, as the Vice Principal, I initiated the idea of the teachers' co-operative buying items that teachers needed (this was usually during Festive periods like Easter or Christmas) in large quantity at wholesale price, to be resold to the teachers at a price cheaper than the market price, while retaining the eventual profit. And it worked.

Let me give you a picture of what happened. A particular item is valued at say, #120 at the current market price. But by the time we buy on wholesale price, the rate stands at say, #80.  Then we sell to the teachers at #100 (#20 cut from the market price), while making profit of #20.

You see what happened? The co-operative has gained, and the individual teacher has also gained. That’s a win-win situation.

All I have shared here are practical things I have tried and it worked not mere paper theory.

African teachers must think out of the box in order to survive the harsh economic realities that have bedeviled the region.

I bet you, if teachers can apply these tactics, it would be a turn-around to their financial struggles.
