Skillshare – Make Money Teaching What You Know

Skillshare.com is a platform where pretty much anyone can teach virtually anything to anyone.  Teachers create classes, decide on a price, and allow students to sign up to take the class.  Subjects taught range from web design to techniques for applying eye makeup, and classes can be taught worldwide through online classes as well as locally. Who Can Teach? Anyone that has a skill to share can apply to create and teach a class through Skillshare.com.  For online classes, however, they require proof that you know what you are talking about.  For example, if you want to teach a class on web design, you will have to do a short project to show them that you know what you are doing and are qualified to teach on that topic.
