I am an MBA and started my working career right after getting my degree. Even I continued my working life after getting my life partner.
We both used to do a scheduled job of 9 to 5 for five days a week. But I could not give proper time to my job after having kids. So at last I said good bye to my scheduled job.
As being a mom I want to stay with my children at home. I’ve to do all house holds for my family.
I gave all my time to home. Although I was satisfied but inside me a working lady always reminding me of my degree and education. Staying at home also affected our income level.
As it is the time of social networking I usually saw adds of online working on various site. On discussing with my friend I got a suggestion from her to become an online tutor. It really made me happy. So l started working online. Working from home is a great way to maintain your income. Becoming a virtual tutor is an interesting thing for me. As I am not bound of clock and site.
What is a Virtual Tutor?
A virtual Tutor is a person who teaches online in a virtual environment connected through networking. It is all about online tutoring. It is just like to work as a teacher in any academic coaching centre. Just the difference is of the environment.
Online Tutoring is the process of teaching in a virtual environment of classroom. Where a tutor has one-on-one contact with each other. There the learners and teachers are separated by time and space.

There is a bundle of websites where you can register yourself as a Tutor. Following us the list of well known top sites who hire the tutors.

These all sites are easily assessable for any one. Just go on site and register yourself. Some of the websites need experience along with the degree. Some only requires a four year education degree. No experience is required and some even don’t require the college degree too.
After registration when you will be available to the virtual students. You have to teach what you know. Students are available from K to 12. You can teach a level according to your convenience.
Almost all subjects are taught online i.e. English, Maths, Algebra, language, physics, biology, chemistry, business management, finance, accounting, economics and many more.
I like to teach economics and business Maths. You can choose your own subject. Not only subjects are taught, you may help in preparing some special tests to your students like SAT, PSAT, GRE, GAT and ACT.
There are two types of site
One which provide you student who is to be taught and the site pays you on hourly basis. This payment depends on the nature and difficulty level of the subject. Hourly rate varies from site to site too. On an average you can earn $11 to $15 per hour. And you have to be available at least 5 hours a week.
Second type of sites you meet your virtual student directly and decide your rates and time schedule. The site only charges you its fee on getting a student.
But keep in mind that you meet a verity of students with different educational backgrounds like some students only to get their answer checked by you and some want to get their problems solved.
So don’t waste your qualification just because of that you’ve to stay at home, move one step ahead and maintain your income level by enjoying your degree. Happy online earnings as Virtual Tutor.
