As you well know, we are all about being able to travel as much as possible. Travel costs money, though, so now and again we focus on neat ways to earn an extra buck or two – or indeed a full-time income – in order to hit the road more often.
Even better, many of these opportunities can be combined with travel – so that you can earn while away from home. I do this myself, as my main job as a translator can be carried out anywhere in the world as long as I have internet access. The same is true for this particular job – working as an online tutor for Studypool.
Basically, Studypool is a well-established site helping people with study questions from homework to degree level; so if you have expertise in one of their subjects you may be able to earn decent money from making use of your knowledge.
More and more of my friends are signing up for this kind of service and more and more of them are actually making money from working remotely anywhere around the world (with an internet connection, of course):
So it was high time we checked out one of the best known and most established companies – Studypool. Since many of you may be interested in the other side of the coin – i.e. learning a new skill or refining a rusty one – we have looked at the service from the point of view of both students and tutors.
The sign-up process is quick and easy and you won’t need to spend all day inputting your life history in ridiculous detail unlike some sites we could mention. As a tutor you can be up and running in minutes and if you have a question you can expect to start receiving answers almost as quickly – sometimes faster, depending on the subject.
It is cheap for students, too – some questions can be posted for just USD 1, which is pretty amazing. At this rate, getting help for a large assignment need not cost you the earth.
As a tutor, what you can earn depends on what you can offer – which is fair enough. If you can answer questions about English – or perhaps Chinese – from non-native students, you could be on to a winner.
At the moment Studypool has a few downsides. First of all, there are some subjects for which tutors are sorely lacking. If you are the right tutor, this could be a goldmine but for a student in trouble, it can be frustrating. Many non-English languages lack good coverage – at least at the moment.
But things are moving fast and Studypool is growing on a daily basis – so whether you need an urgent question answering or are looking to share the benefit of your knowledge, get over to Studypool and check it out!
