If you’re interested in teaching but selling digital courses is not for you, consider becoming an online tutor.
Many students today actively look for remote lessons. Independent tutors often offer their services via video communication apps like Zoom or Skype and accept payments via PayPal.
Evaluate your expertise before choosing a topic to teach. Some popular tutoring subjects include math, languages, and computing. Make money by creating learning modules, giving on-demand lessons, and providing personalized feedback.
Get certified to enhance your credibility as an online tutor and improve rates. And before giving live lessons, set up a solid internet connection to ensure smooth video communication.
When ready, create a website or join an online tutoring platform to promote your services. Here are four popular platforms for people interested in the online tutoring business:
- Skooli. Schedule lessons in advance or accept them whenever you’re online.
- TutorMe. Connects students with tutors based on their needs and preferences.
- Tutor.com. Offers US-based tutors the opportunity to teach 250+ subjects to students of varying ages and education levels.
- Preply. Teach different languages and set custom rates for your services.
