Online tutoring is another legitimate way for you to work from home.  Online tutoring is a new way for a student to receive help, either scheduled or on-demand. Sessions are done through a proprietary application where a student and tutor can communicate.  Common tools include chat, whiteboard, web conferencing, teleconferencing and other specialized applets which make it easier to convey information back and forth.  For example, there may be a specialized applet designed specifically for mathematics which allow the use of symbols.

Online tutoring has been gaining popularity over the past couple of years due to the ease of being able to connect to a tutor at moment’s notice when help is required.  This is especially effective when a student is studying for a test that is scheduled for the next day at school and is stumped on a particular problem.  Not all online tutoring companies offer an on-demand tutoring service.

The average pay for an online tutor is around $15 per hour.  Some jobs pay more and others a little less.  As an online tutor, you will generally work in the evening hours, after school.  Make sure that you check the requirements for each company before you apply.
