How to Make Extra Money with Teaching and Tutoring

Have you ever considered how to make extra money with teaching and tutoring? In this post, I’m going to tell you all about how to do this. This is the first post in a series, I’m going to write about various ways to make extra money working from home. I hope you will read them all and get busy implementing so you can earn extra money while being there for your children or creating time and financial freedom.

There are two main ways to make extra money with teaching and tutoring.

First, you can sell your own tutoring services and teach students either in your own home, at their homes, or via Skype or Zoom or any other online platform.

Second, you can partner up with a company who does it all for you and then pays you a wage based on the number of hours you teach or tutor, or the number of students.

Both ways can work however, here are a few things to think about before getting started making extra money with teaching and tutoring. If you do it completely on your own, then it will be like having your own business and will require a lot more work. You also will need to do all of your own marketing and it will be up to you to find students. If however, you partner up with a company, then they will find the students for you, pay you less than you could earn on your own, and it’s more like a work from home job.

If you want to find a company to work with here are some of the top companies.

1. Rype– This company offers ESL, French, Spanish, German and other languages tutoring as well as math tutoring. All the tutoring is done via Skype. I tutor French with them and have really enjoyed it. If you want more info on being a tutor with Rype contact me and I can help you get started.

2. Vipkid- you’ve probably seen facebook ads for them. You tutor English to children in China. For this one you must have a bachelor’s degree and they are quite picky, but it’s an option to consider. The prime tutoring hours are also usually very early morning/middle of the night for Americans.

3. Upwork– This is a freelance site where you can find people who have posted they are looking for tutoring and teaching.

4. Wyzant This site offers both in person tutoring and online lessons. I’ve tutored with them before too and it was a positive experience.

5. The other way that can really work for you is to find colleges- usually 2 year colleges work best, and see what openings they have for teachers for their online courses. This only works usually if you have at least a bachelors and often a masters degree. So if you are well educated and have a background in Math, English and most Sciences, this can work really well for you.

Questions to Ask Before Starting to Work From Home as a Special Needs Mom

Are you looking to work from home as a special needs mom? If so you are not alone. Many if not most special needs moms dream of being able to work from home and in some cases you may have to if you are going to work at all. That said, actually finding the perfect opportunity to work from home as a special needs mom can be challenging. I wrote a post recently on 101 Side Hustle Ideas for Special Needs Moms, however, before you decide what to do for work from home there are some questions you should answer and get the answers to.

1. What am I really looking for? Before starting to work from home as a special needs mom, you really need to get crystal clear on what you are really looking for. For example, are you looking for a company to hire you to work from home on a full time basis? or would you prefer to start your own home based business? or do you want to find freelance work?

2. Do I have any money to invest? If so, how much? While you can find a work from home job that you won’t need to spend any money in order to get started and there are some businesses you can start for next to nothing, many of the best options for working from home, will require some financial investment.

3. What are my passions and interests? If you aren’t passionate about what you are doing, you won’t be able to continue doing it. This is especially true when you have a special needs child you need to take care of.

4. How much income am I looking for? You really want to know how much income you need and want. This will help determine what kind of work from home you do.

5. How much time can I commit to and what days of the week? Having a special needs child, means that you may not be able to work at certain hours or on certain days so know when you can and can’t work. Even though you are working from home you are still working.

6. Is it possible for me to leave the house at all? If so, when? While many things that you can do while working from home with a special needs child won’t require you to leave the house, some things may require you to leave the house at least periodically.

7. Who do I have who can help me? This is important in many aspects. First, know who can help you babysit or care for your child while you work. Who can help you get started? Who can be a mentor or coach for you? Who can help you when you get stuck and need help or just need a break from working.
