Why Teach on Skillshare?
When you become a teacher on Skillshare, you’ll get exposure to over 2M users, who you can engage on and off of Skillshare. Students on Skillshare see learning as a daily habit, and rather than taking one-off classes they sign up for memberships and follow teachers they love. Students are notified each time their teachers publish new content, and quickly become brand ambassadors within their own communities.
How Much Can I Earn?
Teachers are compensated for every minute watched of their content and on average, teachers make $1500 of passive income in the first 6 months with top teachers making over $40K/year. In our minutes watched model, pricing ends up being comparable to around $5 an hour watched, so if you have a 3 hour class, that’s $15 a student! Plus, you never have to worry about pricing or running steep discounts on your classes because membership is consistent. On top of royalties we also have our referral program which earns teachers $10 for every new subscriber they bring to Skillshare.
