Online tutor

How to make money from home with online tutoring.


We all have strengths and weaknesses this is an advantage to us all because we all benefit from each others strength and weaknesses, for example, let’s say i am a good artist but i have problem coming up with a good write up for my artworks and i know someone who can comeup with cool writeups for my work i can easily have him or her paid to get my write ups done for me or even learn from him or her.

You know what the person i paid to come up with good write ups for my artwork could start a tutorial to teach people that want to learn how to come up with good write ups.

Online tutoring can be done in various forms it could either be you creating your own content based on your own expertise or may be you notice a profitable niche that is not of your own expertise, you could outsource the content creation to someone of that expertise and make money from it, asides all these you could also apply as a tutor through websites that allow you to teach via video conferencing.

Before we proceed i would like to brief us with statistics according to Forbes the global private tutoring market will surpass $102.8 billion, meaning online tutoring is a rich and growing industry with a wide range of business opportunities available for everyone from the college student or tutoring novice to the experienced teacher or savvy professional.

So here comes the big question how can we profit from online tutoring:

Creating your own course content:

Choose a Course Topic

Make a list of things you know about. Perhaps it’s something your friends and family ask you for help on. Maybe it’s a skill related to your job (i.e., how to use Evernote or how to be productive working at home). Do you have a hobby you can teach others about, such as watercolor painting for beginners or how to lower your score in golf?

Do Market Research

You don’t want to spend a lot of time creating a course that no one will buy. Many people might want to know about your topic, but the question is; are they willing to pay to learn it? Before you invest time in your course, research who the best buyer for it would be, and whether or not they’re ready, willing and able to buy it.

Outline Your Course

If you’ve determined there is a market willing to buy your course, the next step is in determining what you’ll put in the course. By the nature of a course, the content you provide should go deep into the topic and cover all important aspects. A course isn’t like a blog post, which often just skims the surface.

To help organize your course, think in terms of modules and lessons. A module would be the overall subtopic, with the lessons providing the details of that subject. For example, if you have a course on starting a home business, you might have a module on business plans. Your lessons in that module would include “How to determine your USP” and “How to identify your target market.”

Decide the Best Methods to Deliver Your Lessons

There is an expectation that online courses will offer a variety of teaching methods, such as text, video, worksheets, checklists, infographics, audio, and anything else that delivers information.

The trick is in determining what format is best for what you’re trying to teach. In some cases, you might offer two methods for one lesson. For example, if you were teaching a course on how to use Quickbooks, you might have both a step-by-step text instruction and a video tutorial on how to install and set up the software.

Create Your Lessons

It is the most time-consuming aspect of creating an online course. Consider creating a logo or a color theme that appears in all lesson content. Proofread your text lessons and watch your videos to make sure there are no errors or glitches.

Determine How You’ll Sell Your Lesson

For the most control, create a website to host and deliver your lesson. There are membership site scripts and WordPress plugins that can help you set up a system for selling and delivering your course.

For faster, less technical effort, you can use an online course service, such as Udemy or SkillShare. Pay from these sites varies. For example, Udemy’s instructor pay depends on how the sale was generated (through its marketplace, an affiliate, or directly from you).

Applying as a tutor on online tutoring sites:

 Prep class 

Prep class connects tutors and learners on different subjects. You can get started easily either as a learner or tutor  by registering on the website. The site is highly reliable and easy to use. Prospective tutors are vetted and only qualified persons are approved to start teaching. Prep class’s system then matches learners and tutors within the same area.

 Compass tutor

Apply to be a private home tutor in any field or capacity ranging from home tuition, professional exam preparation and international entrance exams. Compass tutor also offers entrepreneurship skills and gives the option of online tuition for those who may be unable to attend face to face tutoring sessions.Another service offered by compass tutors is in-school tuition.


Hire your perfect private tutor on ProTeach. The website promises a personalized home tutoring service by identifying learning styles and connecting you with the ideal teacher for any subject or exam.

Much like the others on this list, you can either sign up as a tutor or create a basic account to request a tutor for your child. 

Tuteria is designed as a platform where students or their parents can find qualified subject experts around their area and book their tutoring services. Parents can book home tutors for their kids and other users can simply book tutors to learn from a wide range of subjects such as make up and other crafts.
