If you are a college student or a beginner looking for a side gig, we have a tested pathway for you. Online tutoring jobs for college students require some demonstration of subject matter expertise. So, make a list of things that demonstrate it.
Showcase talent in the subject
For example, if you want to teach math online, you can perhaps show that you obtained perfect math scores in your ACT/SAT tests. If you're considering teaching English online without a degree, then perhaps you can showcase any national-level essay contest wins in addition to test scores. We recommend that you at least possess a college degree in the subject you wish to teach, or plan to get one asap.
This is one way to get ready for online tutoring jobs without a degree. Try to obtain at least two recommendations from credible individuals with some standing who can vouch for your tutoring ability - one from an educational setting and one from an employment one.
Social media presence
Look professional on social media. If you're on platforms like LinkedIn, make sure your profile reflects your competency. Parents and students do their own background checks which you have got to pass.
Register on online tutoring platforms
Most on-demand tutoring platforms have made this is a fairly straightforward process which you can do via desktop or mobile phone. Try out multiple tutor companies so that you have a sense of documentation and certification requirements across platforms. If the platform lets you list yourself to become an online tutor, chances are that there are suitable freelance tutoring jobs available for your level on that platform.
Certain platforms will need you to go through subject proficiency exams, teaching exercises etc. This is to ensure quality on the platforms and good for your tutoring business as well. That itself serves as a certification, so don't let it deter you from registering.
