Inside: Need to supplement your income, homeschooling moms? Don’t miss these ideas to make money part-time while teaching your kids
“How do you afford to homeschool?”
Has anyone ever asked you this question?
For me, the answer to homeschooling budget struggles is very similar to how we afford a big family.
We scrimp and save, hold on to things we can use again, and keep an eye out for deals on our homeschool curriculum.
I work outside the home part time as a registered nurse, plus I blog on the side.
If you’re stressing about your homeschool finances, it may be time for you to consider your own homeschool mom side hustle. You’ll need something you can balance with your busy lifestyle, without taking you too far away from your little ones.
What about looking at teaching other children?
Note: I was compensated for my time in spreading the word about VIPKID. As always, all opinions are my own.

Why Work with VIPKID?
In my part time job, I have to be at the hospital ALL DAY, every Saturday and Sunday. It works for our family, but would be a disaster for others. With VIPKID, your hours are flexible – you can work from home early in the morning, before your children get up, or in the evening, while your husband handles dinner and baths.
You can teach from anywhere — your house, a coffee shop, or the library.
VIPKID is full of support for its staff – you’ll find a community of over 20,000 teachers lending support on passing the interview process, preparing for classes, as well as teacher meetups.
All of the lesson plans are created by the VIPKID Curriculum Team, freeing you up to enjoy teaching.
Are you super motivated to pay off bills or save up for a big purchase? VIPKID offers incentives – everything from cash to a trip to Beijing!
The average pay of $19/hour being a VIPKID instructor is certainly more than working at Starbucks.
