THE TEACHFIRST HOT­SHOT

Cosmopolitan (UK) - - Earn -

Like all teach­ers, you’ll recog­nise this lot by their arm­fuls of pa­per­work, eye bags and the no-bull­shit air of some­one who has bro­ken up two fights, marked 30 es­says and or­gan­ised the year-10 trip to Düs­sel­dorf be­fore you’ve had your first cof­fee. But the new breed of su­per-teacher has am­bi­tion be­yond the class­room; pol­i­tics, mo­ti­va­tional speak­ing, chang­ing the world one think­piece at a time. It’s all up for grabs.

MOST LIKELY TO SAY “It’s all Gove’s fault. Still.”

WANT TO JOIN THEM? Sure, you can ad­ver­tise your skills on Gumtree.com for £20 an hour, but sign up to pri­vate tu­tor­ing sites like First­tutors.co.uk, and you could end up teach­ing an oli­garch’s wife how to use her new baby grand pi­ano for £200 an hour. Those with glit­ter­ing CVs (PhDs, Oxbridge, grade-9 vi­o­lin) can turn this into a full six-fig­ure-salary ca­reer.
