    Hi everyone,

    It's my first year teaching summer school. I was initially dreading it, but it's not been too bad and I get extra dough. Just curious how much teachers in other locations get paid. If you don't mind sharing, how much extra do you get? Thanks :)

    Ours depends on enrollment. Also, I'm in South Korea, so we are paid in Korean won. When I converted the amount I'll make around 1,000 USD for the three weeks of summer school.

    I am currently teaching summer school for algebra 1. I get paid around $6500 for 19-5 hour days. Works out to around $70/hr so you can't really beat that! I am in NJ.

    Unfortunately, my district cut summer school due to budget issues several years ago. I was bummed because I've always worked summer school and counted on that extra money. We made $40 per hour and got paid for planning time as well. It basically doubled my paycheck that month- not bad for only working half days and without the other stresses of the regular school year (meetings, paperwork, etc.)

    I'm pretty sure it's about $45 per hour in my area.

    Summer school here pays right at 40 an hour...but it's mostly kids doing credit enhancement and it's a ton of fun.

    I did it this year, and have many times in the past. I get $36 an hour - seems a middle of the road rate here.

    I used to teach summer school when I was a 'newish' teacher and building my resume. It ran for about 3-4 hours per day for about 3 1/2 weeks in July.
    I don't do summer school anymore. My days off for relaxation and fun are worth more to me than I'd make in summer school. And I save tutoring money from the school year (much more lucrative than summer school) for summer adventures!
