Become a Tutor - Somebody Needs You

One of the things I did to help put myself through college in addition to the usual food service, buildings and ground, and other "heavy-lifting", sweat-inducing jobs, was to tutor students in music.

In fact I student taught a few classes, but you don't need to be as formal as that. Somebody, somewhere, almost certainly needs help with knowledge you already have.

And you don't have to be an expert in the field, but you do have to know enough to either be able to help them outright or point them in the right direction. In fact, sometimes it's better if you've struggled through the material yourself because you're more likely to be identify their sticking points and help them get unstuck.

Online Tutoring Jobs

There are actually quite a few online tutoring companies now that offer online tutor jobs. Or typically they are more like online freelance work.

There are also smaller online tutoring services and people offering their own tutoring service via the web.

For most people though it's going to be easier to hook up with an online tutoring company so I've started a list of them below. Also, this can be excellent work for people looking for work at home jobs.

For anyone thinking about starting up their own tutoring business, I highly recommend the fourth book on the list, above. It is called "How to Start a Home Based Tutoring Business." It gives you all the information you need when you are setting things up and getting ready to open your own tutoring business. It is better than the rest, in my opinion.

Being a tutor is one of the best ways that a College student can earn money while going to school. It is also a great fit for a stay at home parent, or a person with a day job who needs to make some extra cash on the side.

Tutoring fills a great need in your community. There are many students struggling in school who just need a helping hand. It's true what the author said "Somebody needs you."

Hi, my name is Steven Gottlieb and as a college math professor I certainly can help you with any math course you are studying. I offer online tutoring that has yet to be matched. I have an electronic whiteboard on which I write on and this writing will instantly appear on your computer screen. We will talk by telephone and in the end you will be access to a video recording of the whole tutoring session-I'd like to see a face to face tutor do that!

I also sell math videos ranging from arithmetic thru calculus 3, statistics, probability theory, linear algebra and most test prep courses.
