    Teaching isn't worth the money in my opinion but does have job security and you get holidays etc.

    You earn a lot more from being a private tutor, right?

    Depends on how much business you get for private tuition, some charge £20 per hour or is it two hours. I'm not too sure, I've never used them myself.

    Here's the link for teachers salary:
    First salary seems to be £22,000 and it's not too bad but there's not much room for profession unless you go into secondary school. You could become head of department etc and provide private tuition alongside on weekend I guess.

    The better you are, the more you are paid.

    The pay is alright if you're able to be organised and manage a work-life balance. Otherwise, it will become your life and you automatically reduce your "worth per hour".
