How to Become a Tutor Online

Online Tutoring has really exploded over the last few years. There are dozens of respectable online tutoring franchises that you can sign up with to get some tutoring jobs. Basically you follow their application process, and choose what subjects you want to tutor. To be a tutor online, go online and search under "Be A Tutor Now" or "Tutoring Jobs", or "Online tutor jobs".

Most agencies which hire people to be a tutor online have a qualification process where you indicate why you are qualified to tutor the subjects you choose. Some of them also have some standard tests you take to test your skills. It is not too difficult to get in as a tutor, especially if you have already identified that you have strengths in the subject areas. (Of course, someone who is not good at math should not be applying to be a math tutor and hopefully wouldn't be accepted.)

If you decide to be a tutor online, here are some of the advantages you might enjoy:

1) You don't have to pay advertising money to find clients. They are funneled through the agency you signed up with and assigned to you based on the subjects you chose and the schedule you agreed to.

2) You do all the work from the comfort of your own home computer. That means no travel time, no more commuting, no paying parking, etc. If you are the only one home when you are tutoring, then background noise wouldn't be an issue. If you tutor when others are at home, you will want to have a room where you can close the door to filter out background noise.

3) You get to decide your rate of pay. Most agencies which hire you to be a tutor online allow you to set your own rate of pay. This is great because you decide what your time is worth. Also, you can go in to the website and see what other tutors in your field are charging.

4) You decide what hours on which days of the week you want to work. To be a tutor online is one of the most flexible jobs you can imagine for setting your own schedule.

5) When you sign up with your chosen agency to be a tutor online, you will most likely be offered some training. This training may cover how to handle sticky situations, give you access to worksheets and other resources, and educate you on the rules of conduct for both tutors and students.

6) To be a tutor online as opposed to in-person tutoring also gives you the advantage of not having to collect the money yourself. The agency handles money collection from students and distribution to tutors. (You get paid!)
