If you are a teacher looking for an online job, you have a few choices contingent on your goals and situation. You can work for an online school, you can tutor students online, or you can secure an online job that doesn’t require any teaching abilities. In this article I will discuss each of these options.
Working for Online Schools
Tuition free online schools are now available in many states. While most are charter schools, many states also offer their own public online schools. With increasingly more students opting for an online education, teaching positions at these schools are often available and you can typically apply directly through the school’s website. These are usually full time teaching positions and would take the place of the traditional teaching job.
If you’re looking for a part time online job for teachers, online tutoring can be a perfect choice. There are many websites that now offer live online tutoring and they are always seeking tutors during the school year. You can also advertise your own services through online classifieds and use services such as Skype to communicate with your students. Unfortunately, online tutoring positions are usually only available from September through May and competition for students and jobs can be stiff.
Non-Teaching Online Jobs
A third option is to find an online job that doesn’t involve any teaching at all. Options include selling on eBay, writing for websites that pay for content, starting a blog and earning money from advertising, finding a job with a legitimate company that hires work at home employees, or joining an affiliate program and promoting products.
There are many ways to earn extra money online and by getting creative and doing some research you can find an online job that is perfect for your needs.
