Online Teaching Opportunities: List of Tutoring and Mentoring Jobs
If you are a teacher, tutor or mentor, or even a subject expert in any subject, then you can find work from home working as an online tutor.
With the advent of the Internet, there's been an explosion of online tutoring and mentoring jobs as every training company, college and University are now providing online classes to pupiles around the world.
Below is a list of some organisations that can provide you with work as an online tutor or mentor
Tutoring can cover anything from tutoring maths, English, foreign languages, or even keyboarding skills or more industry specific courses. Maybe you're a semi-retired electrician or engineer, or perhaps you are an expert in astronomy or even astrology. There are courses being taught online in every subject.
The list below outlines some of the organisations that have online tutoring employment opportunities, followed by a list of links to their websites.
The Benefits of Online Teaching
With online teaching, you don't have to be in a classroom, in a specific place, at a specific set time. Your time is your own. Most courses are not delivered live and your role is simply to keep an eye on student progress and to give them feedback, set assignments and mark assignments.
Some of the more sophistcated courses might require you to hold webinars, which would just require you to log onto their system and deliver a class via a webcam, but at the moment most of them are not equipped to do this.
You can set the hours you work and juggle your workload around your existing commitments.
Your class size might vary from 6 to 60, but as you're managing them online it's usually easy to track their progress and contact them through the website of the learning provider.
Online Teaching Jobs From Home
One of the biggest advantages of online teaching jobs is that they are usually done from home. With online teaching jobs from home being a growth area, it opens up the opportunites for people just like you to teach your chosen subject to groups and individuals across the world - fitting in with your need for an income and the hours you have available.
How to Apply for Online Teaching Jobs
- The first step is to apply and submit applications to every company that you qualify for. These companies will receive hundreds of applicants weekly, so make sure you're not instantly dismissed by not following their instructions or filling out any forms correctly. Make it easy for them to consider your application.
- Build a good reputation if you can before you apply. If you're new to online tutoring, then why not sign up with a company like Homework and get some experience and feedback under your belt. Always make sure you take your online tutoring commitments seriously, people are relying on your feedback and prompt attention to their learning needs. The better you are seen to be doing at any one site will influence how quickly you can progress and be taken on by a better, larger or higher-paying organisation.
Freelance Tutoring Jobs
Under the heading of freelance tutoring jobs, there can be a wide variety of opportunities for tutors or trainers to undertake short training sessions, often online, or even to get involved in writing or reviewing course materials.
It's worth keeping an eye on freelance tutoring jobs too as you can never tell when a great opportunity will present itself.
Freelance jobs will be paid on a "per project" basis and projects tend to be quite short in the first instance, but once you have your feet under the table with an organisation you can often look forward to regular ongoing work, or even recommendations.

This one is a little different as it's actually a role that requires the tutor to visit the families in their homes to tutor their child. I've included it for completeness.
About 10 years ago, John Hooi had a simple idea and a desire to make a difference. He wondered why parents had to adjust their family’s busy schedules and drive halfway across town just to put their child in another classroom with more kids…when in fact it was the classroom experience that their child was struggling with in the first place. John wondered….
- What if a tutor could come directly to the child’s home to deliver tutoring services instead of fragmenting a family’s precious time together by forcing parents to act as “taxi drivers”?
- What if there was flexibility in the tutor’s schedule so that tutoring time slots could be scheduled to accommodate for a family’s busy schedule?
- What if a struggling child could get one on one attention instead of being limited to the “one-to-many” teaching models used by most extra-curricular learning centers?
- What if a tutor could develop a personalized program by working with the child’s existing homework and school curriculum instead of loading more standard textbook work on an already overwhelmed child?
- What if average families could get access to top tutoring resources sometimes reserved only for wealthier families?
These questions and more were eventually answered through the development of the Tutor Doctor program. Over the last 10 years, the Tutor Doctor vision has taken shape. In 2003 the company turned to franchising as a way of expanding the company’s impact and meeting the vast market demand. Now with offices internationally, the Tutor Doctor vision is becoming a reality as the lives of students and their families are being positively impacted
