Additional Income for ESL Tutors

As a private ESL tutor, I have to think about multiple sources of income. Since I choose to teach no more than three students a day, I really have to think about other sources of income. Currently, my two other sources are my websites (one about cats and one about ESL) and editing.

I don’t do editing regularly, but it seems that I frequently get emails from people in response to my craiglist’s ads for tutoring services. Many people have written me since I started posting the ads asking me if I can edit their papers. If there is a reasonable turn-around time and reasonable compensation, I usually take the editing job. I refuse to take on someone else’s headache who has waited until the last minute to finish their paper. I’ve had enough headaches of my own over my years as a student!
