The Tutor's Guide to Online Tutoring Jobs

Are you a college student that often times ends up helping your fellow classmates study for exams and help them with homework? Do you consider yourself a pretty good teacher? There are plenty of tutoring jobs and opportunities for you to earn extra income through teaching, and it’s not hard to get started.

There are several methods you can use to finding tutoring jobs or to work for yourself through websites like and other similar ones. The first is to list yourself on your local Craigslist. Make sure your Craigslist ad is honest, gives background information about yourself and your teaching experience as well as how much you charge. Give your ad a title that will make it stand out from the rest. Craigslist is still a surprisingly good method to get tutoring jobs.

There are a variety of tutoring companies out there. Some are national chains and some are local small businesses. Some of these tutoring companies only offer tutoring jobs to students with near perfect GPA’s and SAT/ACT scores. If you fall under this category, it would be well worth applying to these companies since the pay will most likely be higher. If you don’t have perfect academic scores, fear not, as many tutoring companies will offer tutoring jobs to students who can demonstrate that they relate well to the students and are good at teaching.

Online tutoring websites give you the opportunity to list yourself as an individual tutor with a tutor profile. Some of these websites are even free to list. Be sure to take advantage of these sites as it can give you more exposure and bring in more tutoring jobs. If you are concerned about privacy, many of these websites make sure that students contact the tutors through the website so that your personal contact information is never exposed.
