If I'm studying to be an English instructor, can I say "I'm working my way into becoming an English instructor"?
I have searched for the presence of that expression in the language but I could only find "work my way up to"

If your intended meaning is that you are steadily progressing towards a goal, you would say "I'm working towards becoming an English instructor."
"Working your way into" carries the idea of infiltrating something. The cancer has worked its way into the kidneys. I used my charms to work my way into the club.
