Online Tutor Jobs in India
With the teleconferencing technology now available, location does not seem as if it should matter with online tutor jobs. However, it usually does, particularly with remote or work-at-home positions. Companies typically hire only from within specific countries. The good news is that India is one of the countries with a significant number of these jobs available. Below are eight companies (some that also hire tutors to go to student's homes) that offer online tutoring jobs from home. The opportunities range from employment teaching positions to websites in which students and tutors can connect.
Many of the work-at-home online tutoring positions available in India are teaching students in the U.S., Canada, and Europe, so the work is often performed overnight. Training at most places will be unpaid, and sometimes it can be extensive. Some places may charge for training.
Part-time tutors at this U.S.-based company use Skype to teach students.

Teaching experience and a bachelor's degree in the subject taught are required.

Requirements for tutoring at EduWizardS are a bachelor's degree or higher, a reliable broadband connection, a headset with microphone, and a thorough knowledge of the subject matter. If you meet these requirements you may apply, but you must be approved before you can begin. There is no up-front cost, and tutors can set their own rates, which usually fall around $15-20 an hour. However, EduWizardS takes a percentage of the fees tutors earn. Most tutors are from the U.S. or India, but tutors in China, Japan, UAE, and South Korea can teach English as a second language.
