Hi. I work as an online tutor and wondered how many others here do similar wok. What company do you work for? What subjects do you tutor? I work as a reading, math, and science tutor with Brainfuse.com and an English and essay writing tutor with Tutor.com. I'm an independent contractor, so I don't receive benefits and pay my own taxes. Let's hear from you - any other tutor's here? Sherrie

I saw where you put some tutoring links in another post. I saved them in my favorites. I am always looking for work at home opportunities. Can you give us more info, I am interested in learning more about how this works. Thanks so much.

Hi. If you're a student in a four year program or have at least a BA or BS, then you're halfway there. For Brainfuse.com and tutor.com you're tested on various subjects. Tutor.com also requires the completion of a mock session before a tutor begins working with students. With Brainfuse the tutors use set lesson plans with some students and assist others with homework. With tutor.com the sessions are based on what the student needs. Math and science tutors are always in high demand, so if you have a background in those subjects, get on over there. HTH, Sherrie

There are plenty of tutoring sites out there. The one I found recently is www.tutorgator.com because it is local and you can start your own courses if you want to.

I think you can register either as a tutor or a student. It depends on what you want to do. I think you might want to consider registering as a tutor since you want to offer courses to teach.

I am constantly amazed at what may be found on the web! I never thought about tutoring that way. Right now I am tutoring one-on-one in student's homes in my area. I have four students--three in first grade and one in sixth grade. I work as an independent contractor, also. My company is called A to Z Tutoring and is funded under the "No Child Left Behind" Program by Pres. Bush. I don't know how amy states the program is in. I will check out the online sites. Working from home would be much more conventient for me as I am a caretaker for my husband who is ill.
