With unparalleled changes in our world right now, it's time to think outside of the box of "remote writing jobs" alone. Ask yourself, "What are my strongest skills?" Now, consider teaching others how to achieve that same level—and more!
Consider Becoming a Writing Tutor
Private online tutoring is a growing area in the uber-competitive march to college admissions. The subjects in demand are the core curriculum:
Foreign language specialties are also seeing an uptick. And help with preparation for standardized tests such as the SAT, GED and GRE is always in demand.
An online employer like Tutor.com, which offers one-on-one help to students, is set up so that when a student needs assistance with homework, he or she enters a grade level and subject into the computer log-on screen. The appropriate tutor (the firm has more than 3,000 on board) connects to the student inside the secure online classroom. The student and tutor can chat using instant messaging, draw problems on an interactive whiteboard, share a file to review essays and papers, and browse resources on the web together.
With individual accounts, sessions are saved so that students and parents can review them at any time. Course levels range from elementary school through 12th grade and the first year of college, but tutors also can help adults returning to school or searching for a job. Other online tutoring firms include Kaplan and Pearson Education. For general information about tutoring, visit the American Tutoring Association or National Tutoring Association websites.
Be Your Own Tutoring Platform—Tutor on Your Own!
Alternatively, you might opt to tutor on your own. You'll probably forgo the bells and whistles of the interactive whiteboard, but you can easily set up chat sessions and send files back and forth with your students. And you can develop an ongoing relationship that provides steady work.
No matter how hard it may seem, never give up on exploring all of the remote work opportunities you can do through your main skills.
