Online and Peer Tutoring Information and Qualifications
Thousands of college students make money tutoring, it's not as difficult to get into as you might think. Whether you're employed by your school, online company, or on your own, you can charge a good hourly rate for yourself. Many online tutors get paid anywhere between $20-$40+ per hour!
If you've taken a class and aced it, there is a possibility you could land yourself a peer tutoring position at your school. When peer tutoring, your job is to help students in one subject, such as English, math, Office applications, accounting, finance, technology, etc. Peer tutors sit at a location, and usually get full pay regardless if anyone shows up. Most colleges that hire peer tutors pay them as a work study, meaning that your pay comes from your financial aid package (but does not affect your Pell grant or student loans). Many peer tutors get paid between $9-$14 an hour.
You might see other tutors at your school who are not students. These are commonly referred to as "professional tutors". Professional tutors hold at least a Bachelor degree in the subject area, and typically get paid much more than a peer tutor. If you're a Masters student, you could qualify for a professional tutoring position.
Online tutoring positions are much more strict when selecting applicants to hire. Most, if not all, legitimate online tutoring companies require a degree in the subject of which you wish to tutor for. On top of that, they like experience in their candidates. Many students who took advantage of peer tutoring while working on their Bachelors degree will have an easier time getting into an online tutoring position.
