Created by LinkedIn, Lynda.com allows instructors to create courses on a variety of topics, primarily related to work and professional endeavors. SEO, photography, software development, and design are well-represented. Apply via their website, but one piece of advice: make sure your LinkedIn profile is looking good before sending in the application.


Most online tutors need a minimum of a high school diploma, though a college degree, experience, or a teaching license might be required, depending on the gig. Be prepared to promote your qualifications in order to show your expertise, subject knowledge, and ability to provide a good standard of tutoring.


Plan ahead. Make sure your work environment does not have distractions. Be prepared. Stimulate discussion and make sure the student is actively tuned in to the session. Communicate regularly. Ask for help and feedback from other tutors; there is always something we can learn! Foster relationships with each student, and be attentive to how they learn. Every student learns and responds differently.
