How to Become a Work from Home Tutor
Do you have a college degree but you can't seem to find a job? Do you have a job and you need to know how to make extra money and earn money from home?
An online tutor is one of the real work from home jobs. It allows you the flexibility to set your own schedule, work from home online and give yourself the satisfaction of knowing you made a difference in a child's life.
How do you get started?
The application process is pretty involved but it should be when you're working with children. Typically, the application process begins with taking an exam in the subject you are interested in tutoring. Once you have passed the exams, you have a session with an online tutor to evaluate you in your tutoring skills. Prior to being hired, you'll need to also pass a background check.
If you have the necessary skills and are approved to tutor in more than one subject, you'll be given preference in being selected as an online tutor. This provides you the opportunity to earn even more money at home.
There are subjects that are in higher demand. Subjects such as Accounting, Algebra, Calculus, Physics, Trigonometry and Chemistry are generally in greater demand since there are less tutors qualified in these subjects.
What's the pay for a work from home tutor?
Generally you are paid once a month and the pay is based on the subjects and number of hours that you provided tutoring to students. Some companies such as Tutor.com offer bonuses, performance incentives and overall opportunity for growth.
As far as the pay, don't forget that you are saving money on wear and tear on your car and you're not paying high gas prices since you are making money online from home.
