(FinancialHealth.net) – Tutoring people online is a great way to earn cash. Good news is, you don’t need a teaching degree in order to be an online tutor. However, some online tutoring companies do require you to have a bachelor’s degree in the field you wish to work in. Learn more about the different ways you can make cash tutoring people online.
Online Tutoring Company
Getting hired by an online tutoring company is the easiest way to make money tutoring, because you don’t have to search for students who need your services. Some companies do require you to have a degree in the subject you wish to tutor, and some may require you have teaching experience and/or a teaching degree. Read the requirements for each tutoring company to ensure you qualify.
Advertise Services Locally
Skilled in a specific subject? You could advertise tutoring services in your local area. Parents are always looking for tutors to help their children with schoolwork in subjects that give them difficulty.
To advertise your tutoring services locally, use online advertising sites, such as Craigslist or Marketplace. Use your own network of friends to find gigs by asking them to refer you to people they know who may need tutoring services.
Be sure to tell everyone you speak with that you only tutor students online, not in person. This way, they understand upfront that communication will take place through email, Skype, or other instant messaging platforms.
Check with Local Colleges
Local colleges are often looking for tutors. You may be required to tutor students at the college, but you may also be able to tutor them online using Skype to communicate directly for the allotted time. Colleges have bulletin boards available for people to post advertisements.
If you work for an online tutoring company, typically you are paid by a fixed hourly rate, and receive payment on a specific schedule. However, if you are offering your own tutoring services locally, you have the option to create your own fees and payment schedules.
It’s important to set reasonable, yet competitive prices that don’t undervalue your time and skill merit. Before deciding on an hourly cost, ask other local tutors, parents, and schools about the going rate and use that information to settle on a fair amount for your own services.
The key to making cash tutoring people online is to drum up business. The sooner you land clients or an online tutoring job, the faster you start getting paid.
