25 Careers for Teachers Who Leave the Classroom

teaching jobs online for students

Many people go into teaching because it’s a rewarding career path that shapes the lives and minds of students. However, in recent years, budget cuts, overcrowded classrooms, staffing shortages, and a global pandemic have caused many teachers to reevaluate their career.

If you’re a teacher who’s considering a career change, the good news is, your skills and experience can transfer to a number of in-demand jobs outside the classroom. While some of these might require you to return to college, there are many others that can put your teaching degree to good use (and might even earn you more money).

Whether you’re ready for a major career change or want to advance in the one you already have, this list of 20 alternative jobs for teachers will help you explore your options.

Careers in Education

Do you like working in the field of education but know that traditional classroom teaching isn’t for you? Here are some roles in education where you can put your teaching skills to good use.

Education Policy Expert

If you're passionate about education and want to contribute to changes that improve the experiences of students and teachers, you should consider a career in education policy. Education policy experts measure the success or failure of existing policies and determine how policies will affect students, teachers, budgets, and districts. They also look at challenges faced by schools, districts, or regions and come up with policy-based solutions.

Education policy experts typically work for school boards and districts, state education agencies, the federal government, lobbying firms, think tanks, advocacy groups, and education consulting companies.

To work in this role, you'll need at least a bachelor's degree, though some districts might require a master's or a doctorate.

Average Salary: $76,019

Curriculum Specialist

Do you want to help build the future of education by working in curriculum development? If so, you can put your background in teaching to good use by creating engaging, meaningful learning experiences that improve academic outcomes. Curriculum specialists test learning data and strategies, then recommend curriculum and teaching improvements. They also train teachers on new programs and content.

Curriculum specialists can work in a variety of settings, including public or private schools, nonprofits, government agencies, and more. Whatever industry you choose, you’ll need at least a bachelor’s degree, but schools and universities typically require a master’s in curriculum and instruction. Previous experience as a teacher or instructional leader also leads to better opportunities and pay.

Average Salary: $68,118

Program Director for Exceptional Children

A program director for exceptional children, also referred to as PDEC, is someone who has a background in special education and an understanding of relevant teaching practices and methods. This role is critical to ensure that students get the care and training they need to be successful. They have several duties—they oversee the department, plan the curriculum, and stay up to date on the latest education research. A PDEC should typically have a few years of experience in special education. A master’s degree in education can also help expand your knowledge and deepen your skills. Since the job itself requires excellent administrative skills more than classroom and educational skills, you’ll want to develop those skills in any way that you can.

Average Salary: $61,500

Guidance Counselor

If you have an interest in helping students reach their academic and career goals, this career path can be a great fit. Guidance counselors advise students on academic and personal decisions. They also work with students experiencing behavioral, emotional, or mental issues that impact their ability to perform at school. In addition to working with students, guidance counselors also cooperate with parents and school staff to ensure students reach their full potential.

Some of the things you can expect to do in this role include arranging and scheduling orientation programs and internships, researching study programs and recommending them to students, and completing student evaluations.

Guidance counselors can work at any level of education: elementary, middle, and high school, as well as college, at both private and public schools. Each state has its own licensure and accreditation requirements to become a guidance counselor but most will require a master’s degree and the completion of an approved counselor education program.

Average Salary: $58,120

Academic Advisor

Academic advising is often a good fit for former teachers because they already know what students need to successfully navigate their academic requirements. These professionals are involved in nearly every step of a student’s education process—from guiding them through the admission process to recommending what classes to take. They also update student reports and keep track of student progress. 

Before you can begin a career as an academic advisor, you’ll need to complete a few educational requirements, including a bachelor’s degree, typically in education. In order to advance your career and pursue a future in academic advising, you might consider a master's degree in curriculum and instruction . This type of degree will help you understand curriculum, high school and college scheduling and student needs, and give you insights into how to work with students on a daily basis. These skills are critical for a career as an academic advisor.

Average Salary: $45,965

Instructional Designer

If you have classroom teaching experience and an in-depth knowledge of the academic landscape, this background can give you a solid head start as an instructional designer. These professionals help teachers, school administrators, and educational institutions harness the power of new technologies to improve the quality of each student’s education.

Instructional designers evaluate a variety of learning tools and resources, identify what materials can benefit specific students or teachers, then work closely with educators to help implement curriculum and instruction practices.

Instructional designers typically need both an undergraduate and a master’s degree in education. In addition, employers sometimes prefer candidates with at least a few years of experience in a relevant academic field.

Average Salary: $80,182

Standardized Test Developer

Becoming a standardized test developer often means earning more than you would as a teacher, which can be appealing if you’re looking for a job in education that comes with a pay bump. 

Standardized test developers design evaluations that measure a student’s retained knowledge at the end of a course or schooling. In addition to writing and editing test questions, they analyze data to identify areas that need testing, research sources that can be used when developing new test questions, and ensure tests are accurate and error-free.

Like many other jobs in curriculum development, test developer roles often require a master’s degree. Depending on the subject matter, you may also need specific expertise. For instance, test developers that work on the LSAT might need a law degree.

Average Salary: $70,000

Private Tutor

Unlike classroom teachers who work with 20 to 40 students at a time, private tutors teach students one-on-one. If you enjoy that dynamic and have excellent communication skills when it comes to explaining complex topics, a career as a private tutor could be a good career move for you. 

Students from elementary school to college may need a tutor to reteach or explain course materials or to help them complete assignments. In some cases, families hire private tutors to ensure their children excel in a specific subject area. In other cases, tutors might work through an agency.

As a prospective private tutor, you’ll need to have a bachelor’s degree in the subject area that you want to tutor in. For example, if you want to become a math tutor, you’ll need a bachelor’s in math.

Average Salary: $50,390

School Principal

Principals supervise schools and direct their overall operation. This involves maintaining student and teacher success, handling disciplinary issues, managing budgets, overseeing hiring decisions, and more. So, if you want to advance your education career and continue to work in a school setting, transitioning to a school principal could be rewarding for you.

If you’re considering this role, it’s important that you feel comfortable in a leadership position and possess the strong interpersonal skills—such as communication, conflict management, patience, etc.—that are needed to excel in this position.

In most cases, school principals hold master’s degrees in education administration or educational leadership . However, some principals hold only bachelor’s degrees but have significant experience as elementary, junior high, or high school teachers or upper-level administrators. School principals also need different experience and certifications, which can vary by state, city, and district.

Average Salary: $111,640

Educational Consultant

Becoming an educational consultant is a great move for teachers who need a break from the classroom but still want to stay connected to education and impact students’ lives in a positive way. 

The day-to-day duties of an educational consultant can vary depending on whether you work for a private company or a school district. For instance, some educational consultants work with educational technology firms to design online continuing education programs for teachers. Others might work for community programs that help homeschool families create their curricula. Most educational consultants, however, serve school districts to develop their education programs.

The educational requirements vary as well. Many districts will require you to have a master’s degree, and others might want you to have a doctorate. Most will also require a valid teaching certificate, as well as continuing education requirements.

Average Salary: $65,621

teaching jobs online for students

Careers Outside of Education

Ready to leave the field of education altogether? Many of the skills you’ve likely mastered in the classroom—such as creativity, communication, leadership, and critical thinking—can transfer to careers in a number of industries.

Given the subjects you’ve focused on as a teacher, you may find you’re already well suited for a related field. For example, if you’re an English teacher, the transition to a freelance writer could be a logical career move.

Childcare Worker

Childcare workers get the perks of working with children but don’t have to deal with many of the stresses that teachers do—such as grading papers, designing lesson plans, and attending meetings. 

One of the biggest responsibilities of a childcare worker is to make sure the kids under their care are safe. They’re also responsible for a child’s well-being, which might include feeding meals, getting kids ready for school, or supervising play time. They can work with children of all different ages, in many different settings. Private homes, daycares, and preschools are just some of the environments you might work in as a childcare worker. 

Average Salary: $26,790

Sales Representative

Teaching skills, like the ability to educate prospects and communicate clearly, lend themselves particularly well to a career in sales. Much like teachers, sales representatives are great at interacting with people and identifying their needs. They also rely on strong communication, negotiation, and writing skills.

A sales representative’s responsibilities can include pitching products or services, cold-calling prospects, and interacting with clients to ensure they have a positive experience from start to finish.

Some sales positions may not require a formal degree, but many experts agree that it’s ideal for prospective sales representatives to have at least a bachelor’s degree, as it opens more doors.

How much you make in this career largely depends on your abilities and work performance. If you’re the type of person that wants to control your income rather than working for a traditional salary, this is a job to consider.

Average Salary: $57,286

Financial Advisor

This career can be a good match if you have a particular interest in math and accounting or a background in teaching topics related to those subjects. Financial advisors work with clients to help them realize their financial goals and provide advice and strategies so that they can reach those goals. They also research various stocks, mutual funds, and markets worth investing in, to achieve substantial returns for their clients.

Financial advisors require specialized education to prepare them to accurately manage client finances. In addition to a bachelor’s degree, it’s a good idea to take courses in investments, taxes, estate planning, and risk management. If you choose to become a certified financial planner (CFP), you’ll also need to complete a CFP program.

Average Salary: $89,330

Freelance Writer

Teachers who are self-motivated and want more control and flexibility in their daily lives might enjoy a career as a freelance writer. Since teaching requires strong writing skills, many find this to be a natural transition. 

Freelance writers create all types of content, including blogs, research articles, brochures, instruction manuals, short stories, advertisements, and more. Teachers who become freelance writers might specialize in the subject they once taught or take an entirely different direction into technical or educational writing, which can be similar to the skills involved in teaching.

Some teachers start freelancing while also working full-time, then transition into freelancing full-time as they begin to gain clients.

While many employers prefer writers with a writing background, you can increase your chances of being hired if you have a strong writing portfolio with relevant work samples. Strong research skills, grammatical knowledge, and the ability to network are all key for getting started as a freelance writer.

Average Salary: $63,213

Corporate Trainer

A career move from teaching to corporate training might feel like a natural transition for those with a passion for developing others. Corporate trainers are similar to teachers in that they support learning and development. However, instead of working with students in a classroom, corporate trainers work with employees in a professional setting to promote their career growth. They may train teams to develop their skills, create training programs, develop and conduct assessments, and evaluate an employee’s progress. Interpersonal skills, as well as an enthusiasm for teaching, are musts for this role as corporate trainers work with people on a daily basis.

When it comes to education, many employers look for a candidate who has, at the very least, a bachelor's degree. In some cases, they may want you to have a master's degree and additional certificates or college courses related to corporate training.

Average Salary: $59,630

Museum tour guides serve as educators for a museum, which is why this path can be a natural fit for some teachers. In this role, you’ll be responsible for keeping guests engaged as you lead them through a museum’s exhibits, explain their significance, and answer questions. This sometimes involves leading individuals or groups of all ages, including children. With your teaching background, you might also be in charge of organizing educational programs, lectures, or field trips.

The qualifications for this position can vary based on the position and type of museum, but many require that their museum tour guides have at least a bachelor's degree in a related field. However, former teaching experience can be extremely beneficial for getting your foot in the door. You might also benefit from volunteer experience.

Average Salary: $33,421

Human Resource Specialist

Many of the interpersonal skills used in teaching translate to careers in human resources (HR). These professionals are in charge of anything related to staffing—including recruiting, interviewing, and screening applicants for a company. Similar to teaching, HR specialists work with a variety of personalities and learning types when it comes to training new hires. They’re also tasked with handling employee relations, pay, benefits, and training.

Because of how essential the role of HR is, the demand for HR specialists is expected to continue growing over the next several years. This is a great position if you’re looking for stability and like working with and managing teams of people.

HR specialists need to have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in human resources to gain the business and managerial skills necessary to recruit new employees, manage and set new company policies, etc. In some cases, employers might want to see certifications that are relevant to the position.

Average Salary: $63,490

Digital Marketer

If you’re looking for a job that taps into your creative side, consider marketing. It could be an easy transition if you taught business, communications, or creative writing, as many companies look for people who possess these skills.

Digital marketers have many responsibilities, including writing words and phrases for marketing content, establishing a brand voice, collaborating with other team members, and brainstorming new marketing initiatives.

This career path can offer diverse opportunities since marketing is used throughout all types of industries and fields. Schools, businesses, nonprofit groups, and hospitals all utilize marketing teams to help them promote their products or services. Whatever industry is interesting to you, chances are that they need a marketing manager to help them develop creative content and sound strategies.

Most employers will want you to have a bachelor’s degree in marketing or a related field, so this job could require some extra coursework. However, earning this kind of degree will equip you with the critical skills you need to be a successful marketer and content creator.

Average Salary: $62,601

Registered Nurse

With extra schooling , you could be ready for an in-demand nursing career that utilizes many of the skills you already have. Similar to teachers, registered nurses (RNs) need to be empathetic, detail-oriented, and emotionally resilient.

 RNs are vital to the healthcare industry and provide essential treatment and care to patients in hospitals, nursing homes, and other healthcare facilities. They counsel patients, discuss treatment methods, administer medications, and perform physical exams. 

If you’re looking for a job that provides a high level of stability and satisfaction, this career path can provide both. Becoming an RN tops polls regarding job satisfaction and career quality. Plus, employment of RNs is expected to grow 9% from now until 2030.

Becoming an RN requires intense education to ensure you understand best health practices and how to provide excellent care to patients. You’ll need to have a nursing diploma and pass the NCLEX-RN exam.

Average Salary: $75,330

Event Planner

Are you highly organized and detail oriented? If so, you might excel as an event planner. Event planners coordinate all the moving parts of events, including weddings, corporate events, fundraisers, award ceremonies, and more. Teachers with an interest in this career path can put their planning skills to good use, as much of what an event planner does involves booking venues, arranging transportation, and coordinating with vendors.

A degree isn’t typically required, although a bachelor’s degree in marketing or management can give you many of the skills needed to succeed in this job. A couple of years of experience planning events will also help you get your foot in the door.

Average Salary: $50,794

Whether your professional interests are in or out of the education world, the best way to position yourself for a new career move is to learn as much as you can about the topic. Exploring an online degree program at WGU is a great way.

The Best Online Teaching Jobs To Consider


Our world is filled with opportunities. Thanks to technology, people can not only earn their higher education online, but they can also teach online. Online teaching jobs have become increasingly popular, especially when distance learning becomes a necessity and not just a choice. Depending on what type of teaching you want to do, there will be different requirements. For example, online college teaching jobs will require higher degrees than online foreign language lessons.

If you have a degree in education or are interested in obtaining one, we will share all you need to know about home-based online teaching jobs.

Let’s get started!

Online Teaching – An Overview

Online teachers go by many names, including: virtual teachers, distance teachers, or remote teachers. But, regardless of the name, they all serve the purpose of helping to educate students who opt into learning online.

Sometimes, online teaching jobs can be blended between a combination of in-person and online. In other instances (like at the University of the People, for example), both students and teachers work and learn in a 100% digital environment.

These jobs help students learn from all over the world at various education levels, including:

For teachers who want to educate at the K-12 level online, jobs typically require a bachelor’s degree and experience. Like at traditional college campuses, to be a professor, even online, you typically must have a master’s degree or PhD.

Wrapping up.

In some instances, teaching online is a choice. In others, like when there are external circumstances, it becomes a requirement. With the aid of technology, it’s become easier than ever to work as an online educator.

Depending on what kind of remote teaching you want to take part in, you can choose from teaching a language to working as a professor for an online university like the University of the People. The best way to go about landing your ideal position is to decide what kind of online teacher you want to be, research available opportunities, and ensure you have the necessary requirements to apply.

When I was in college, I had one of the best jobs for college students I could possibly ask for. I was a team lead at my school’s indoor recreation center, and I loved my job. As a team lead, I took my job pretty seriously.

It was my responsibility to train the new employees, manage events, and make sure everyone had a good time. Even though I loved my job, it was tough balancing the rigid work schedule with my class load and extracurriculars.

College is a busy time.

Although working through college can help offset some big expenses, between classes, volunteer work, and socializing, it can be difficult to fit a rigid work schedule into the equation. That’s where online jobs come in.

18 Legit Online Jobs for Students To Earn Money

If you’re in college and want to work but have trouble finding the time, these online jobs for students can give you the flexibility you’re looking for. Plus, online jobs often pay better than regular campus positions.

1. Textbook flipper

Bookscouter homepage

What it pays: varies, based on what types and how many books you’re selling

Textbooks are expensive, sometimes costing hundreds of dollars. But what do you do when you’re done with them? Many students sell them back to their university bookstore for a few dollars, but there’s a way you can recoup more than that. In fact, if you’re a savvy shopper, you might even be able to buy books at a discount and sell them for profit. 

Using book buy-back sites like Bookscouter , you can search for the best price on your textbooks to maximize how much money you get back. You can also search for cheap books to flip for extra money by selling them to your classmates.

If this sounds like the side hustle for you, you can learn more about it in our Bookscouter review .

2. Social media manager

What it pays: $15 to $40/hour

If you’re already spending hours per week on social media, why not get paid for some of that time? Almost every business uses social media and many need help managing it. That’s why they hire independently contracted social media managers .

Social media managers help build brand awareness by curating content, building relationships with potential customers, and driving new leads. Your job is to be the online voice of the company.

Get started as a social media manager by approaching local businesses and telling them about your services. Reach out to businesses you already frequent such as yoga studios, coffee shops, boutiques, and restaurants.

Focus on which social media platforms you’re most comfortable with, and talk about how you can use it to grow their business and reach new customers.

What it pays: varies (some bloggers make $100,000+ per month)

As a blogger, you’ll produce written content that you share with an audience. The key to making money as a blogger is to write content that provides value to your readers. For instance, rather than writing a personal recap on your trip to Hawaii, write a post titled “7 Things You Need to Know Before Vacationing in Hawaii” instead. It’s both intriguing and helpful.

Before you start your blog, choose a topic you enjoy writing about, and make it specific. You want to target your audience and write for them. It’s okay to concentrate on a small niche rather than a large one because you can’t always have broad appeal.

Once you have your topic, write down at least 20 blog post ideas, then start writing your first five posts. This is a good test of whether or not you actually enjoy writing on your chosen subject.

After you’ve brainstormed some ideas, the next step is to choose a host for your website. HostGator is a popular option for beginner bloggers. It’s not free — plans start at $2.75 per month — but it’s an essential first step.

See our step-by-step guide to starting a profitable blog to get started.

4. Freelance writer

What it pays: $50 to $500+ per article

Don’t worry about your credentials or experience if you want to work as a freelance writer. If you have good grammatical skills and an ability to write well, you can do it. Just ask Holly Johnson, who went from working in a mortuary to making over $200,000 per year as a freelance writer .

Freelance writing is a flexible and lucrative way to make money in college. And you might enjoy seeing your byline online or in a print publication. Having an online presence in the form of your own blog can help you land high-paying clients faster and serve as a portfolio for your work. Otherwise, you can get started as a freelance writer by picking up clients on Upwork.

Once you’ve got some work to show and testimonials to back you up, start pitching to jobs on Problogger and Freelance Writing Jobs.

5. Product reviewer

InboxDollars Homepage

What it pays: $2 to $10 (or more) per review

If you enjoy trying new products and writing about them, then consider doing it for money. There are plenty of legitimate sites that will pay you for your reviews . 

To do so, you’ll need to register with websites like LifePoints and InboxDollars and answer a few questions about your demographics. Based on the information you provide, you’ll receive products to test and review. You can share your reviews on social media, on the website, in a blog, or on a survey. 

And if you sign up with a site like InboxDollars, you’ll find other ways to make money in college including taking surveys, playing games, or even watching videos. 

It doesn’t require a big time commitment to make money as a product tester, and you can combine it with a few other ideas on this list to earn even more.

6. Virtual assistant

What it pays: $15 to $200+ per hour

Virtual assistants (VAs) are hired by businesses that prefer to outsource tasks that don’t need to be done in-house. This can include bookkeeping, data entry, or customer services. The amount you can charge as a virtual assistant depends on your skillset and experience. And if you have specialized skills like managing Facebook ads or email marketing, you can charge a premium rate.

Start working as a virtual assistant by making a list of services you can offer; then create profiles on Zirtual and Virtual Assistant Networking to get the word out about your offerings. 

For more instruction, professional virtual assistant Kayla Sloan offers a free workshop on 5 Steps to Become a Virtual Assistant (without spamming your friends and family on social media).

7. Graphic designer

What it pays: $25 to $50 per hour

You don’t have to be an art major to make money online as a graphic designer. As long as you have an eye for detail and are willing to put in some time to learn, you can use a free web design tool like Canva   to create beautiful and unique designs for your clients. Small businesses need appealing graphics for everything including business cards, logos, social media images, and more.

If you don’t have the necessary skills but still want to try your hand at graphic design, consider signing up for the free Graphic Design Basics course on Skillshare. After you’ve got the fundamentals down, you can move on to a more detailed course like Graphic Design for Beginners Part 1 . This course goes more in-depth about how to apply the principles of design to real-world projects.

Once you’re ready to get started, reach out to small businesses in your area. Let them know what services you offer (business cards, branding, flyer design, etc.) and how you can help them increase brand awareness. Bring a sample of your work. 

You can also reach out to some of your favorite bloggers or friends who blog to see if they can use your services for Pinterest or social media images. Sites like 99designs are also good resources for newer freelance graphic designers.

8. Proofreader

Proofread Anywhere Free Workshop Page

What it pays: $10 to $45 per hour

If you have an eye for spotting grammar and punctuation mistakes, consider working as a proofreader. Proofreading is usually the final stage of review before a piece of content is published and typically involves checking for spelling, grammatical, and punctuation errors, as well as typos.

It’s separate from editing and is one of the best online jobs for college students.

If you’re interested, check out Proofread Anywhere  for some free seven-day courses. The course’s creator, Caitlyn Pyle, started her own proofreading business and used it to make a living online while traveling abroad.

You can also begin booking proofreading jobs by setting up a freelancer profile online. There’s no shortage of opportunities on Fiverr, Upwork, and Freelancer.

9. Resume writer

What it pays: $50 to $75 per resume/$10 to $25 per hour

If you’re good at putting a positive spin on someone’s work history or know how to make a resume stand out , you can turn it into a lucrative side hustle helping your friends write theirs. And if they’ve used an online template or already have a solid resume, you can offer resume proofreading services to make sure it’s error-free. 

The easiest way to start offering your resume writing services is through freelance sites or by word-of-mouth. Let your friends know you’re available to help them polish their resumes before they apply for that post-college job or internship, and ask them to spread the word.

10. Tutoring

VIPKID is a side hustle favorite of teachers looking to make extra money

What it pays: $14 to $20+ per hour

Teaching or tutoring online is a perfect online job for college students. The best part about tutoring is that you’re reinforcing what you’ve already learned, so if you tutor subjects in your major, it’s like getting paid to study.

If you want to start offering your tutoring services online, here are the best places to start:

If you need a break from school, you can tutor or teach in your other areas of expertise, like an instrument or sport. Advertise your services on social media, in student centers, or in the community around your school.

11. Web developer

What it pays: $20 to $75 per hour

Regardless of your major, you can build up a side hustle as a web developer. If you have minimal skills, you can get started by taking an online training like The Complete Web Developer Course on Udemy.

This course will teach you everything you need to know to start booking clients and can pay for itself in as short as a week. Although one class won’t make you a professional coder, you will get a good foundation and the confidence to take on your first clients.

For new web developers, it’s best to start with smaller projects like editing existing websites rather than building new ones. This is a good way to practice the most popular coding languages (along with WordPress) and how they work together to form a website.

You can begin earning money by bidding on projects on freelance sites like PeoplePerHour, Upwork, and Fiverr.

12. Survey taker

swagbucks homepage gift card offer

What it pays: $0.10 to $20 per survey

Surveys aren’t always the most fun gig, but they are one of the easiest online jobs for college students. Survey sites collect consumer data that companies use to improve their products. That’s why they’re so eager to pay regular people for their opinions.

In just a few minutes a day, you can make a decent side income with paid online surveys.

One of our favorites is Swagbucks because of the many different ways to earn including watching videos, taking surveys, playing games, and browsing the web.

To get started as a survey taker, create an account for each site you plan to use. Since you won’t be eligible for every survey, you’ll earn more by signing up with several sites.

13. Search engine evaluator

What it pays: $12 to $15 per hour

Google isn’t always perfect. That’s why it, and other search engines, relies on real people to provide feedback on the relevance and usefulness of their results.

These types of online jobs for college students usually range between 10 to 30 hours per week and can easily work around a busy college schedule.

Find search engine evaluator jobs on:

Make sure you follow the application process and answer any questions as honestly as possible. You also want to be realistic about the amount of time you can commit to this type of job. If you only have a few hours a week available but the position requires 20, you might want to search for another side hustle.

14. Fiverr gigs

What it pays: $5 to $995 per gig

Five dollars doesn’t sound like much, but for tasks that take just a few minutes of your time, it adds up fast. If you have a specialized skill, you can charge more.

Projects on Fiverr range from $5 to $995, and you can offer three versions of your services at three different price points. Many Fiverr sellers have turned it into their full-time gig, while others use it to make money on the side.

Popular services available on Fiverr include writing, web development, and graphic design. You can also do something unique or offbeat like prank calls or celebrity impressions.

15. Data entry

What it pays: $10 to $17 per hour

Data entry is relatively stress-free and typically doesn’t require any specialized skills, which makes it a great online job for college students who don’t want a serious commitment.

Check out these websites for online data entry jobs :

You might want to check your typing speed before applying for a data entry job. If you’re a slow typer, it’ll be difficult to turn your projects around on time.

What it pays: varies (some gamers earn $10,000+ per month)

If you’re an avid gamer or love playing games on your phone, you might be able to turn that into a lucrative side hustle with flexible hours. You can start a gaming blog, create a YouTube channel, compete in gaming tournaments, or even play games on sites like Mistplay to earn cash. 

You might even be able to find a part-time job in the gaming industry, which is helpful if you’re in a major like graphic design or computer science. 

Getting started with this online job is fairly easy; all you need is your phone or laptop, a reliable internet connection, and a few hours a week.

17. Social media influencer

What it pays: varies based on nature of campaign (some influencers can earn six figures per month)

Lots of companies will pay people to promote their products and services on social media. If you have a large Instagram, TikTok, or Twitter following, you can take advantage of this and earn some extra money. And for some campaigns or companies, a few followers might be all you need. 

18. Amazon seller

What it pays: varies

Amazon isn’t just for two-day shipping and watching Fleabag or The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel . In fact, there are many ways you can make money on Amazon .

Whether you’re working as a delivery driver, selling your handmade goods, selling your own eBooks, or finding micro jobs on MTurk, there are plenty of options for an Amazon side hustle. You can also resell items like books, sell products as a wholesaler, or join Amazon Affiliates to earn money through your blog or social media. 

There is no cap on how much you can earn selling on Amazon; and if you’re able to take advantage of several of its programs, you can turn this into a lucrative online side hustle. Just make sure you’re following the program’s rules and guidelines. If you don’t, Amazon can dismiss you from working with the company. 

Online Jobs for College Students are the Perfect Flexible Side Hustle

Working online is the best setup for most college students, and you don’t always need any experience to succeed. The gigs are flexible, usually pay better than campus and other brick-and-mortar jobs, and you don’t have to work on your holiday break.

If you find something you’re really passionate about, you could even turn your college side gig into your full-time career.

Today platforms like Vedantu are innovating the art of private teaching.
Bhavdeep Sethi IIT Bombay After a 16 years career in IT, I am semi-retired. To some, retirement means watching TV all day.

26 Best Online Tutoring Jobs For Teachers & College Students

Last updated September 4, 2020 By Dylan Houlihan 56

The best online tutoring jobs

Whether you're a teacher looking to make some extra money , or a college student wanting to side hustle from your dorm room, online tutoring jobs are your answer.

Here are just a few benefits of online tutoring:

So, you'll be helping others, helping yourself, and helping your wallet. Sounds like a pretty good gig so far, what's the catch?

Well, there isn't one, you've just got to be passionate about teaching and helping others. If you aren't you probably won't enjoy yourself anyway, so what's the point? No one likes a teacher who hates teaching (I'm looking at you, Ms. Greg).

The only other catch is that all of these online tutoring jobs require different levels of experience.

Some will hire college students who are working on a degree, some will only hire fully qualified teachers, and one will even hire 15-year olds!

The bottom line:

All of the qualifications required for these jobs will be different, so read them thoroughly.

Also, some jobs will require certain equipment like an iPad, microphone, or webcam, so make sure you're prepared before you apply.

Tips for Online Tutoring Success

I don't want to just give you a list of jobs without first giving you some tips for success, that would be like throwing you into the water without telling you how to swim first, so here you go:

Last but not least, and you'll hear me saying this one a lot:

Don't be afraid to apply.

Even if you don't think you meet all the requirements for a certain tutoring job on this list, it still won't hurt to apply. If you don't get hired, no big deal, you'll get some interview experience and you'll be more prepared for the next job!

If you don't apply at all then what do you get? That's right, nothing.

Hopefully, you now feel ready to face the world of online tutoring. It will be scary for some of you, but you know what they say, all the best things are on the other side of fear.

How to Get Free Tutoring Experience

Some of the tutoring jobs below require tutoring experience in order to be considered as an applicant. Problem is, if you can't land a gig because you don't have experience, how in the world are you supposed to get experience?

Well, that's where a bit of volunteering comes into play.

At Learn to Be , highschool students, college students, professors, and professionals of all backgrounds can apply to volunteer as a tutor. You won't get paid cold hard cash, but you will be able to sharpen your skills and help students (K-12) in the process.

With the experience you gain from volunteering, you can apply to one of the jobs below and leverage that experience to set yourself ahead. On top of that, you'll get to network and learn from other really smart people. That's priceless.

If you still have questions check out the Tutor FAQ .

6.  Elevate K-12

Elevate K-12 isn't the normal online tutoring job. Instead of going online and helping different students every day, you'll be working with the same group of students each week. You'll also have a pre-set schedule every week, and free training to get you started. Weekly hours are between 8 am and 5 pm EST.

To become a tutor for Elevate K-12 you'll need to be living in the USA, and also have 1+ years of teaching experience and a bachelors degree.

Yup is a mobile tutoring app that instantly connects tutors with students. Students simply snap a picture of a problem they need help with, a tutor (that's you) looks it over, then they both work together to solve it.

To become a tutor for Yup, you must reside in the US and have two years of tutoring experience (for most subjects).

When you apply, you'll take a subject exam for each subject you'd like to tutor, and then one teaching exam. The application process should take less than 24 hours. Once you become a Yup tutor, you'll be given a set weekly schedule when you'll be expected to be online to help students.

Pay on Yup is based on experience, communication skills, and content mastery. You'll be paid monthly via PayPal or direct deposit.

8. TutaPoint

Tutapoint tutors must reside in the US, have a minimum of two years tutoring experience (except in certain subject areas), and they must be enrolled or have graduated from an American or Canadian college or university.

For the application process, you'll have to demonstrate your skills, provide references, and complete a video interview & background check. Starting pay is $14/hour with bonuses and incentives, with no guarantee of hours. You'll be hired as an independent contractor.

9. StudyGate

StudyGate has been around since 2014 and if you tutor for them, you'll typically be helping students with their homework. There's an online tutoring section part of the site as well, but they say the “Homework Help” section is their most popular.

Here's how it works:

It's really that easy. This sort of system lets you work when and where you want, and at rates you're happy with. StudyGate even claims that some tutors have clocked over $13K in a single month, with an average tutor making $50-$200 per question answered. 

Payments happen via PayPal or ACH deposit, 2 times a month with a minimum withdraw of $20.

If you want to apply, the process takes around 15 minutes. You'll don't need to be certified, but you will have to upload your diploma or latest transcript (if you're still in college) and a photo of your ID. After that, they'll set up a call with you and get things going.

Cambly is a cool program that allows anyone to connect with native English speakers so they can practice English conversation.

The best thing about it is that no experience is required, you just have to be a native English speaker. Since you don't need any experience to apply, the pay is a bit lower at $10.20/hour. But, you get to work anywhere at any time and chat with people all around the world, so it's a pretty neat gig.

11. Student Tutor

Student Tutor offers private online tutoring jobs for a range of subjects and grade levels.

To qualify, you must be at least be a current college student with a GPA of 3.0 or better, with some prior tutoring experience. If you want to be an SAT tutor, you must have a 700+ score per section. ACT tutors 30+ per section.

Student Tutor offers competitive hourly pay (based on your experience), flexible hours, and much more.

12. Studypool

At Studypool instead of connecting instantly with students one-on-one, you've got to bid on student questions. So basically a student posts a question, you give them a price and delivery time, and if they choose you, the tutor session begins. There are other ways to earn as well such as the Notebank, where you can upload and sell old documents (e.g., notes, study guides) and make passive income.

To apply, you have to be a college or university student.

Learn more about how Studypool works.

Wyzant is open to tutors in the US only. There doesn't seem to be any degree requirements mentioned on their site (so college and potentially even highschool students can apply), however:  

To tutor a subject on Wyzant, you must first take a 8-20 question multiple-choice quiz. You only get one chance, so make it count! If you get a passing score you'll be able to begin tutoring that subject right away.

That being said, to better sell yourself on the platform, you can upload additional qualifications and such to show your skills in a certain subject. Students choose their tutors on Wyzant so having a good profile is important.

Since Wyzant is more of a tutoring marketplace, they let you set your own schedule and hourly rate. Just keep in mind that they also take 25% of what you make as a fee for using the platform .

Note: If you refer a student, you'll receive 100% of the money made through that student.

Payments on Wyzant happen via direct deposit, either on the 1st and 15th of each month, or 3-5 business days after a lesson if you're on express direct deposit. 

If you want to start tutoring on Wyzant, you can apply here or check out their tutoring job search function here .

14. Varsity Tutors

I read on this Reddit post that Varsity Tutors accepts high school students – you just need to be 18 and from the US – so this could be a good opportunity for teens to make money ! No college degree or admission required. 

The user who made the post said they pay every 3-4 days via direct deposit, at a minimum of $15/hour, up to $30/hour . They do take a decent cut of your earnings though, which is a bummer.

To apply, you'll need to provide a copy of your high school transcript, fill an online application, take a video interview, take a follow-up call, and then finally some tests for each subject you plan on tutoring. 

Once you're in, opportunities will start becoming available to you. You can accept or decline whichever you like, and then if the student accepts you in return, you'll be in for a 1.5-hour paid tutoring session. 

Besides online tutoring jobs, Varsity Tutors also offers in-person if you have a mode of transportation.

Online Tutoring Jobs For Teachers (Degree Required)

VIPKID teach the world from your own little corner of it

VIPKid is one of the most well known online English tutoring sites with over 500,000 students ! They've also been consistently placed in the top 5 of Forbes Top 100 Work From Home Companies list.

Pay on VIPKid ranges from $14-22/hour paid through direct deposit between the 10th and 15th of each month.

16. HAWO American Academy

As a HAWO tutor , you'll be teaching groups of students in China how to speak English. These group lessons are planned in advance (you can choose your schedule), and you'll be teaching the same students regularly which means you'll earn a nice stable income.

Each class is about 45-minutes long, and you'll get paid around $22/hour .

Along with a bachelors degree, you should also have:

17. EF Education First

EF Education First is another online English tutoring platform where you'll be tutoring students in China.

The sessions you'll be teaching will be one-on-one, 25 minute long sessions, and all of the course material is prepared for you. No teaching props or backdrops are required.

If you have a consistent availability (you get to set your own schedule), you'll typically be working with the same student(s) for months at a time, so it's great for a stable income. Plus, they say consistent tutors earn around  $2,000 USD per month ($20/hr or more + bonuses) .

18. Course Hero

Course hero click to apply

Course Hero is a bit different than the other tutoring gigs on this list because you can teach almost any subject and you'll get paid just for answering questions.

The average tutor earns around $3 per question answered which ends up being about $12-$20+/hour . Some of the top tutors earn $500 per week.

The best part about Course Hero is that you can hop on and answer questions whenever you want. There are no minimum work requirements (and no certification requirements either) so it's a great way to make extra money on the side .

To apply as a tutor on Skooli, you need to at least have a bachelors degree and a state or provincial teaching certification. If you meet the requirements and submit an application, Skooli should contact you within a few days for a screening session. If you pass it your account will be activated and you'll be able to start tutoring!

As a Skooli tutor, you'll be able to work whenever you're available for a nice $25/hour (paid via PayPal). You can tutor on a smartphone, tablet or computer.

Check the Skooli tutor helpdesk if you have more questions.

To be an online tutor on Aim4A, you're first going to need a microphone ( recommended by Amazon ) and Skype to communicate with students. You'll also need to have a bachelor's degree in the subjects you want to teach and some teaching experience.

21. Brainfuse

The qualifications required to become a Brainfuse tutor are a four-year degree and some prior teaching/tutoring experience. If you fit the bill, email your resume in, and if they like it, they'll send you a registration code to continue your application.

Brainfuse FAQ.

Instructional Connections is looking to hire part-time coaches/teaching assistants. Basically, you'll be working alongside an instructor to help an online course run smoothly.

All the opportunities are work from home, independent contractor opportunities. Pay is based on many different factors, so I suggest just taking a look at the job opportunities available.

Instructional Connections FAQ.

25. Brainmass

Brainmass is a bit different than some other online tutoring sites because they sell educational eBooks and solutions in their solution library. As a tutor, you can create your own eBooks and make passive income each month through sales.

Since not every solution is available, some students will still have custom questions to ask for you to answer. If your answer is approved by the Brainmass editors, it will go to the solution library afterward to be sold – making you even more money.

Once you have made over $75, you will be paid on the 15th of the following month via PayPal or cheque.

26. TutorABC

TutorABC only accepts applicants with a bachelors degree or higher, and a TESOL/TEFL certification (or equivalent). You'll also need a headset w/ mic ( recommended by Amazon ) and a webcam. The application process takes about an hour so clear your schedule! You'll have to take a proficiency test, provide your qualifications, and then take a video demonstrating your teaching skills.

Schedules are flexible and can be personalized, and pay is based on experience and qualifications. Bonuses can also be given based on the number of students in a class and the ratings given by the students.


Online Teaching Interview Tips

Conclusion: Online Tutoring Jobs

I may have missed a few, but those are 26 of the BEST online tutoring jobs I could find. If you know of any good ones that I missed, please let me know in the comments.

I like the online tutoring side gig because not only is it perfect for teachers to earn some extra dough, college students who are passionate about education can get in on the action as well (without even leaving their home/dorm).

Also, don't be intimidated by the qualifications required on some of these sites .

Here's why:

Even if you don't have any teaching experience, you still have the chance of being hired by any one of these companies as long as you act professionally and show off your great personality in the interview (check the interview tips above). Show how good of a teacher you could be!

If you apply and get rejected, no big deal, at least you tried. 

Most likely though, they'll hire you and you'll have a nice paying side gig or full-time hustle. And, if you didn't have any teaching experience before, you're going to get it now, which will make it easier to land more online tutoring jobs in the future.

Excellent information, but are the prices reasonable?

I’m not sure about the prices for students looking for tutoring, this was more for people looking to make money tutoring. Sorry about that!

Hey Dylan, are there opportunities to tutor subjects such as International Relations, International Development, and Spanish for someone who just needs an extra income while transitioning back to teaching at the University level?

October 8, 2019 at 5:53 pm

Hm, that’s a good question! I know some of the tutoring sites above offer a ton of different subjects so I’d look through those to find out. I’m almost positive you could find one for Spanish, not 100% sure about the other subjects.

HI Dylan! Thank you for sharing this valuable work from home information! I am sure a lot of people can benefit from it. When someone is in need of earning an extra income and finds an opportunity to work from home it means a lot. I have been researching different teach online jobs, but can’t make a decision. Although after reviewing your blog I think I am ready to go forward. Thank you! Merci! Gracias!

As a qualified teacher with 40 years experience, I wouldn’t get out of bed for less than $80 an hour.

Hey Lea, that’s definitely fair. However, these jobs still pay quite nicely, they offer a flexible schedule, you can work from home, and you get to tutor students from all around the world. It’s definitely not for everyone, but still a worthwhile opportunity for some.

‘That is NOT fair': Teachers' union boss Randi Weingarten has complete meltdown over student debt outside SCOTUS and says challenge to student loan handout 'really p****s me off'

By Alyssa Guzman and Katelyn Caralle, U.S. Political Reporter For

Published: 21:39 EST, 28 February 2023 | Updated: 12:48 EST, 1 March 2023

Teacher's union boss Randi Weingarten had a meltdown outside of the Supreme Court and screamed about how it's 'not fair' that the courts are blocking student debt relief. 

Weingarten, 65, gave a passionate speech on Tuesday in support of Joe Biden's $10,000 debt relief program , which has been stalled in state courts fighting it. The plan is estimated to cost taxpayers $400billion over the next three years. 

'Frankly, and this is what really pisses me off,' Weingarten said. 'During the pandemic, we understood that small businesses were hurting, and we helped them, and it didn’t go to the Supreme Court to challenge it. Big businesses were hurting, and we helped them, and it didn't go to the Supreme Court to challenge it.

'All of a sudden, when it’s about our students, they challenge it, the corporations challenge it, the student loan lenders challenge it. That is that not right, that is not fair, and that is what we are fighting as well when we say cancel student debt. This is about the people, and it is about the people's future, and it is about all of your futures.' 

Following a series of legal challenges, including from six GOP states, the nine justices will hear arguments for Biden's plan to eliminate up to $20,000 in individual federal student loan debt, which could cost taxpayers as much as $400billion.

Randi Weingarten, 65, said it 'pisses me off' that pandemic stimulus provided to small businesses was not challenged, but student debt is. 'Frankly, and this is what really pisses me off,' Weingarten said

Big businesses were hurting, and we helped them, and it didn't go to the Supreme Court to challenge it. All of a sudden, when it’s about our students, they challenge it' 

The plan, which Biden announced in August, would forgive $10,000 in student loans for those making less than $125,000 and married couples making less than $250,000 jointly. That forgiveness would go up to $20,000 if the borrower received a Pell grant, which aids students from low-income families.

'Today, my Administration argues our case for student debt relief in the Supreme Court,' tweeted President Biden. 'This relief is critical to over 40 million Americans as they recover from the economic crisis caused by the pandemic. We're confident it's legal.'

A ruling from the Supreme Court puts more on the line than student loans. If the nation's highest court decides that Biden's executive action is unconstitutional, it could give more power to states' legal challenges against federal policymaking.

Republicans immediately denounced Biden's order as unfair to those who didn't go to college and would need to help pay through taxes for the forgiveness plan – or to those who have already paid off their loans or never took out loans.

On the other hand, some activists said that the plan didn't go far enough, claiming that all student loan debt should be wiped clean.

'This is about the people,' Weingarten said on Tuesday. 'And this is about the people's future. And this is about all of your futures.'

Six Republican-led states challenged President Biden's proposal, claiming that the administrative process needed to go through a proper comment and response period and also claims that it was an overreach.

The 6-3 conservative majority will give the final say on the matter after it worked its way up through the court system.

Biden's legal basis for trying to cancel a portion of student debt is a 2003 law known as the Higher Education Relief Opportunities for Students Act, better known as the HEROES Act.

Implemented after the September 11, 2001, terror attack, the law was intended to keep service members from being worse off financially while deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Now extended, the law allows Education Secretary Miguel Cardona to grant relief in times of national emergency - in this case, COVID-19.

The White House argues that ending the national emergency doesn't change its legal standing for canceling student loan debt because COVID-19 affected millions of borrowers who might have fallen behind on their loans during the pandemic.

Activists are asking for all student debt to be canceled. 'This is about the people,' Weingarten said on Tuesday. 'And this is about the people's future. And this is about all of your futures'

'The economic impact of the pandemic is still real,' Education Secretary Miguel Cardona said while concurrently insisting the pandemic is over. 'We're trying to help people get back on their feet.' 

According to their legal brief, the states argue that the proposal seeks 'breathtaking and transformative power' by relying on 'a tenuous and pretextual connection to a national emergency.

Student loan borrowers have been thrown into a year of uncertainty.

Biden's announcement for forgiveness in August also came with him declaring the last extension of student loan deferment due to the COVID-19 pandemic, saying that people would need to resume regular payments on January 1, 2023.

The president, however, decided to extend the moratorium until the summer, when the Supreme Court's term typically ends, and an opinion must be issued on the case.

Since the program launched, 26million borrowers have applied for the relief despite its limbo status.

The White House continues to insist that its approach is legally sound.
