Benefits of Becoming a Tuts+ Instructor
There are many benefits in coming a Tuts+ Instructor:
- Getting paid for a subject you're passionate about is always rewarding
- Get your name out into the community, this is especially good if you're just starting your freelance career
- If you're a vector stock provider, get paid to show off your skills and teach others how to do it and we can then link to your GraphicRiver account!
- Establish yourself as an expert in your given field by writing regularly for a respected educational network
- Regular instructors get an increased rate, this is especially good if you're starting out freelancing and want a steady income
- We accept both professionally written tutorials and video screen casts, so it's all to do with how comfortable you feel sharing your knowledge
- Collaborate with other authors within the Tuts+ team on awesome projects! Great for adding to your portfolio
I'm sure there are plenty more benefits. I initially started my freelance career writing for Tuts+ and it's lead me to more opportunities, including writing my own book for Adobe Press!
Let's Talk Money!
Let's face it, one of the most appealing things about writing for Tuts+ is the money. Some of our regular instructors bill us for $700 USD+ per month for publishing high quality tutorials, several times per month.
Our rates start at $50-75 USD per quick tip tutorial and $150-200 USD per regular tutorial. We are willing to discuss rates for more high profile artists and educators.
If you're a regular instructor, who is consistently hitting deadlines, providing quality content and engaging with readers, you can expect to bill $700 USD+ per month, which works out at $8,400 USD per year! Money for working from home, educating readers on your passion? Who doesn't want to pass that chance up!

We'll need the following information from you:
- A brief paragraph about your background and why you're a good fit.
- A single link to an article that you've written, helped create, or like.
