If teaching is your “thing” then online tutoring might really be “your thing”. It’s something you can do from the comfort of your own home with just a computer and your brain. Becoming a online tutor is not hard at all and certainly doesn’t require a rocket scientist.
Start out by finding a site you are comfortable working with and that fits you. After finding that site go ahead sign up. You may have to wait for approval but after you can start. It’s not as hard as you think it is to get started. However, I feel like most people are afraid of starting. Blaming it on not knowing how to start or where to go. Don’t be scared because you have nothing to lose, just be yourself. Now let’s take a short look at the 411 on online tutoring.
A very quick overview on Online Tutoring
Tutoring Online can range from tutoring k-12 students to college students and even further advance than that. It’s all up to you, your skills and what you feel the most comfortable with, is the subject you want to tutor in.
Usually making anywhere from $10-$50 a hour. Some online tutors just do it to make some spare cash however some make a living from it. It all just depends on the subject, how advance the subject is, your skills and knowledge.
Depending on what subject or age group you would like to tutor will help you figure out what website to sign up for. I’ll give you 3 websites below but there’s plenty more available to choose from.
If tutoring isn’t your specialty, I would not consider trying it just to make some side money because people are and will be depending on you. With that being said let’s get into the 3 tutoring sites I have for you below.
