Work from Home: Tutoring

by

Since I have been following the work from home field for quite some time, I thought it could be beneficial to share my knowledge of believed legitimate work-from-home companies. As always, use your judgement when applying for positions. If someone asks for money – RUN!

Here are the online tutoring companies that have a legitimate reputation. Both of these positions will require a computer and they pay $10/hr last I knew.

I actually worked for this company, and it is legit. However, I did not have a great experience with them because they accused me of something that wasn’t true and acted on someone else’s word before asking me anything. I didn’t appreciate that, and I lost hours because of it. They did end up apologizing for their error, but I quit anyways. The last I knew, the minimum requirement was a bachelor’s degree in any subject and the hours vary morning to night.

I have not worked for this company, but all of the things I have read have been positive about this company. It looks like they are looking for certified teachers. To learn more, click the link above. A note – it looks like they are hiring right now.

There are a few others that I have heard of, but I haven’t read enough about them to feel comfortable listing here. There are also some companies that hire tutors to teach English as a second language.

As always, a great place to learn more is the wahm.com forums.

Friday Blog Highlight

by

Thank goodness it’s Friday!  I am about worn out this week and the weekend sounds very nice right now.  I’m not sure if I’m worn out due to lack of caffeine or it’s just been a rough week at work.  Probably a combination of both.

This Friday, I am highlighting a personal finance blog.  It’s one that I often visit.  While thinking of a way to describe this blog, I came up with a few things:

1.)  He lives in Hawaii – that in itself is pretty cool.

2.)  He has an adorable doggie.

3.)  He let his readers ask him and his doggie anything.  That was pretty brave right there, if you ask me! LOL.

4.)  He discusses some off-topic things, such as bullying.  It’s something that I worry about for my son.

5.)  It’s just a well-written and interesting blog.  It’s real personal and I enjoy that.

Financial Freedumb, I enjoy your blog and I look forward to reading more from you 🙂
