I am a Post-Graduate in Physics as well as an Search Engine Optimization + Digital Marketing expert. Right now I am working for a Web Development company and it's been almost a year. I love teaching Physics and recently I was offered to be a Physics teacher in a High School from my local neighborhood. But the salary isn't that great there. So I'm in a tough situation where desire and passion conflicts. Teaching is my desired profession and Digital Marketing is my passion.
Any suggestion of what should I do? Should I go for the school or stick to my current job?

Oh my god a postgrad in Physics!!, I aspire to be that as well :)

Look in my opinion you should always do what you love, but I understand what you mean. Try and get the best of both worlds, keep your current job, and get like a part time or week-end only job as a Physics tutor. The Science faculty of NSW could use some teachers like you who actually know their stuff!

One person I know was just that, he had a weekday job in IT just like you and on weekends he would tutor Physics.

Actually it is not possible. My neighborhood is 200 km away from my office. I can't just attend both. But your idea was great! I think I should try to convince my boss to do freelance work from home after the school time.

I meant you could privately tutor someone at home. I don't work so I cant talk much, but I assume at least some days you would be free to tutor from home
