Brief Insight
WAGES FOR TEACHING TORAH

It is forbidden for a teacher of Midrash to take wages. The Ritva says that only wages for the actual teaching are forbidden, however it is permitted to take wages for compensation for being idle from work. The Gemara says in Kesuvos that the Dayanim were given wages from the Lishkas ha'Gazis because it is permitted to take compensation for not being able to work.

 

Quick Halachah
TEACHING TORAH FOR FREE

In a place that the Minhag is to take wages for teaching the Written Torah it is permitted to take wages, however it is forbidden to take wages for teaching the Oral Torah. If the student cannot find anyone to teach him for free he should pay someone to teach him, but he should not say that just like he was forced to pay someone to teach himself so too he will take money for teaching Torah; he should teach for free even though he was forced to pay someone to teach him. (Shulchan Aruch YD 246:5)

 

Chakirah
If a guard is hired for a period of a week or a month including Shabbosos he may take wages for Shabbos if he is paid for the entire week or month at once. Why is it permitted to take wages for Shabbos if he is paid for the entire week or month at once?
