***New topic ideas added 11/4!***

Thanks for your interest in writing for TakeLessons! Submitting an original article for the blog is a fantastic way to share your best advice with potential students and families browsing the website, and earn extra exposure as a TakeLessons instructor. On top of that, if your article is published, you’ll earn $50!

We welcome submissions from all teachers listed in the marketplace, but we do have a few guidelines we ask you to follow. Adherence to these guidelines will influence whether your piece is published.


We welcome any topic related to your subject offerings that students and families can learn from. Your audience should be students and parents, as opposed to other teachers. We’ve identified some specific topics that we need covered – check out the list here. If you’d prefer to write about something else, here are some additional ideas:

  • Tutorials and tips specific to what you teach
  • Your advice for staying motivated, new strategies for understanding material, getting inspired
  • Answer a common question (or several FAQs) you get from students/parents

Note: Articles must be your original work and not published elsewhere on the web.

Writing Tips and Examples

How it Works

  • Use this form to submit your article (500-800 words).
  • Our Editorial Team will review your article, and reserves the right to edit for stylistic purposes, including grammar, spelling, and formatting.
  • Personal information, such as last names, email addresses, and personal websites are not permitted.
  • Expect a response from us within 30 days of submission – we’ll let you know if your article has been accepted, if it requires additional edits from you, or if we won’t be publishing it at this time. All editor decisions are final.
  • Not a TakeLessons teacher? We do accept outside guest posts; in exchange, we’re happy to provide a link back to your website/blog, but we cannot provide payment.

Published Articles

Published posts will appear on the TakeLessons Teacher Blog, tagged with the category you teach. Quality articles may also be featured on the main TakeLessons Blog, and/or included in promotional emails.

When we’ve scheduled your article for publication, we’ll give you the link for where to find it. We encourage you to promote your post on your social channels, and add it to your TakeLessons profile so potential students can see it!

**Please keep in mind that submitting an article does not guarantee payment. Acceptance is determined by the subject covered in the article, the overall quality of the article, and the number of submissions we receive. You must have a live profile on to be eligible for payment. Priority will be given to those who cover the topics listed here. Questions? Email us at
