Working at Home in Education

Educational work at home positions are typically one of two things. Either you are grading tests or you are tutoring students. Many positions require at least a Bachelor's degree, and teaching certificates may be required as well.

For positions that require you to score tests, the requirements will depend upon which test you would be scoring. The GMAT, GRE, TOEFL, CAHSEE and other tests are often scored by people working from home. Each test has different requirements for their scorers, to ensure that you have some degree of knowledge of the subject of the test.

Test scoring may be highly seasonal. Obviously, there is no testing to be done if no one is taking the test. That means you may see a lot of work at the end of the school year and not so much at other times.

Tutoring typically has similar requirements so far as education goes. A tutor obviously needs to be very familiar with the subject they are helping students with. Work may also be seasonal, unless your students are in year-round schools.

In some cases, a tutor may be paid by the student rather than the company. You need to understand where your pay is coming from and how you are to handle it.

You will need to have a broadband connection to the internet for most tutoring sessions.
