Join our newsletter for your first 30 @Home Income sites and weekly lists.
Passing on knowledge and giving someone a hand up is a worthy way to build an @Home Income.
Everyone has a skill-set or knowledge that can be passed on to someone in need of that skill. Helping a child with school work, a person with their resume skill, someone who needs to learn to cook, canning, sew, organize their home, or a business.
The best part about tutoring/mentoring is you can do it from home.
You can also set your own hours, as long as it works for your student. Setting your own rate is also a your choice!
Here is a list of sites to go through if you want to work for someone else, or take the leap and build your own home business.
1. Buddy School
This site offers one-on-one tutoring. The student messages you to arrange a lesson and you accept, reject, or respond to reschedule. You teach in a ‘virtual classroom’ which probably means over the computer. Do the research. Students rate your performance which in turn rates you higher and allows you to teach more students.
2. Happy Tutors
Happy Tutors is a directory for tutors. It helps students find teachers. So it’s free for students looking for you, but you pay a promotion fee to be included. Tutors are asked to pay a fee to be listed ($50/year) and can additionally pay a fee for promotion ($80/year.) While that’s a bit of a turn-off, $130 dollars a year to have your name listed in an online directory isn’t bad.
In contrast to the relatively casual atmosphere of a site like Happy Tutors, Tutorvista takes its application process very seriously. You’ll need a cover letter and a resume, just like applying to any real job. Once you apply, you’ll be considered against all other similarly qualified applicants.
If you’re accepted, they’ll put you into a semi-permanent position as one of their distinguished tutors. It’s harder to get in, but once you are, there’s less competition.
4. Tutor Hub
This one is a UK-only site. It works like you’d expect, tutors register, students search, and students pay. Students contact you and arrange a schedule. Interestingly, they have a pay-by-the minute system in place, so you’ll get paid for exactly as much as you put in.
WizIQ is pretty serious business in the online tutoring world, and for good reason. They have a strong virtual classroom system in place that will allow you to teach students on a video or audio basis, an online whiteboard you can use, desktop sharing, a file space for uploading and downloading, and a lot of student slots. They even have Android and iOS applications to help enhance your range, so if you’re interested in tutoring, look into WizIQ.
Tutor.com requires an application process, so you’ll need to wait a while after applying for them to get back to you. When you apply, it will help your chances if you’re well-qualified in more than one subject. This site isn’t doing the volume of business that WizIQ is, but they’re still pulling a respectable amount. You should definitely send an application their way while you’re looking into tutoring.
