Teachers Hiring FAQs

What is a teacher?

A teacher is an education professional who helps students acquire knowledge and competency in a skill, academic field, or discipline. From language to history, from art to math, there are as many types of teachers as there are things to learn. 

How do you hire teachers?

You can source teaching talent on Upwork by following these three steps:

  • Write a project description. You’ll want to determine your scope of work and the skills and requirements you are looking for in a teacher.
  • Post it on Upwork. Once you’ve written a project description, post it to Upwork. Simply follow the prompts to help you input the information you collected to scope out your project.
  • Shortlist and interview teachers. Once the proposals start coming in, create a shortlist of the professionals you want to interview. 

Of these three steps, your project description is where you will determine your scope of work and the specific type of teacher you need to complete your project.  

How much does it cost to hire a teacher?

Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions.

  • An experienced teacher may command higher fees but also work faster, have more-specialized areas of expertise, and deliver higher-quality work.
  • A contractor who is still in the process of building a client base may price their teaching services more competitively. 

Which one is right for you will depend on the specifics of your project. 

How do you write a teacher job post?

Your job post is your chance to describe your project scope, budget, and talent needs. Although you don’t need a full job description as you would when hiring an employee, aim to provide enough detail for a contractor to know if they’re the right fit for the project.

Job post title

Create a simple title that describes exactly what you’re looking for. The idea is to target the keywords that your ideal candidate is likely to type into a job search bar to find your project. Here are some sample teacher job post titles:

  • English teacher with ESL experience needed for Hindi speakers
  • Seeking a teacher blogger to write content about education
  • Need a math teacher for homeschooled students

Project description

An effective teacher job post should include: 

  • Scope of work: From course creation to teaching students, list all the deliverables you’ll need. 
  • Project length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project. 
  • Background: If you prefer experience with certain subjects, skills, or educational tools, mention this here. 
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.
  • Teacher job responsibilities

Here are some examples of teacher job responsibilities:

  • Prepare course materials and lesson plans
  • Teach students in live classes online
  • Administer exams to test competency
  • Grade papers, tests, and homework assignments

Teacher job requirements and qualifications

Be sure to include any requirements and qualifications you’re looking for in a teacher. Here are some examples:

  • Education 
  • Instructional design
  • Experience teaching desired skill or subject (e.g., language arts, math, coding)
