20 Places That Hire Teachers to Work From Home!
Recently I was approached by a friend who had retired from being an elementary school teacher. She was looking for side work that could be available to help supplement her retirement income. Who doesn’t love a good side hustle right? If you enjoy teaching then doing it from home could potentially be a good fit. No traffic jams to worry about, or commute times, and having flexibility in the work schedule it SO appealing!
Teachers type jobs come in different forms. One can also tutor, sell YOUR own created curriculum, teach English, or write educational materials for classrooms for textbook publishers.
Online teaching jobs and careers are broad in that some are geared toward hiring retired teachers and educational professionals, while other jobs tend to reach out to the side hustle personalities. I found a ton of the tutoring and ESL (teaching English as a second language) type positions that fell into appealing to the side hustlers.
Jobs where the person is hired directly into the company will offer benefits such as health, dental, and life insurance. Other jobs would fall in the category of being a contractor. This means that typically you’ll have limited benefit and that it fall under the category of a 1099 worker for tax purposes. Essentially you would contract to a company to perform a service, be paid, and be responsible for your own taxes. Despite the differences between the two type of employee “types” both are attractive to job seekers because there are limited traveling costs, and it can be used as a side hustle after “day job” to make extra money. Occasionally it is required as part of the position to visit a classroom or make contact in person with the employer, but it just depends on the specific job position.
Many of these jobs require teacher experience, education, or knowledge or have some experience with children. All of these employers offer potentially work from home jobs. In my list below you will see a few search engines which I added to find jobs under the teaching online category. The terms “remote”, “virtual”, “telecommute”, or “writer”, “teacher”, or even “curriculum” will pull results of available work from home teaching type jobs.
Theoretically one could teach in pajama bottoms I guess ,as long as, your upper body seemed professional for your teaching sessions for the web cam and you meet clothing requirements (some require blue, orange, or white collared shirt) . Typical equipment for teaching from home includes a laptop, desktop, web cam, headset, and basic teaching supplies/ or background. Background supplies can be purchased at the dollar store to help curb expenses. It is different with each position.
It’s best to read the job descriptions and requirements carefully of every job and check out their websites to see if it would be a good fit.
