If you meet the qualifications and are looking for a work from home tutoring job you can do during the day, working for Elevate might be ideal. Founded in 2007, Elevate has a unique system where they match tutors to students to work together long-term in a virtual classroom because they feel that strong relationships build strong educational foundations. The company has won lots of awards and are currently the #1 math resource choice for schools nationwide.
This is primarily math tutoring although there are other subjects as well. You work during the day, part-time, from your home with students that have been pre-assigned to you. The students are K-12. All of the work is done online in a one-on-one environment.
Elevate will pay you $12 an hour. Unfortunately, I cannot find information on how often they pay or what method of payment they use.
Are You Qualified?
You will need to have prior teaching and/or tutoring experience to get in here. The job listing also states that Graduates and current university students (undergraduate, graduate, PhD students) may apply. And as stated above if you are not comfortable with math subjects, then this probably isn’t the job for you.
As far as flexibility is concerned, Elevate sounds really good. The hours you work are during the day so you can schedule yourself anytime between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Also, you are allowed to set your own schedule here. Just let them know when you are available to tutor through the week and they will work around you.
There is no big long list of extensive requirements. All you need to do the work as an online tutor for Elevate is a computer with a reliable internet connection and a quiet environment.
This is another one of those companies where I can’t find much feedback. The job lead gets listed online but you don’t read too many reports from people who are actually doing the job or that know someone who is, although a search on LinkedIn does show several people who are currently tutors for this company. But from what I can tell there are a lot of good things about tutoring for Elevate if you would qualify for it. The hours are very flexible, the pay is OK, and I know that if I were interested in online tutoring, I would love the idea of dealing with only one student at a time rather than a big group. Plus this is an established company that has been around for five years now.
