    I'm not a teacher!

    Check this possibilities. I'm not a teacher.

    a) What do you usually do in your free time?
    b) What do you do, usually, in your free time?
    c) Usually, what do you do in your free time?
    d) What do you do in your free time, usually?

    But I don't think they are 100% all right :), let's wait for some "native-English-speaker-advice".

    In my personal opinion A) is the most common usage.
