Work-at-Home Scoring Jobs and Test Prep Jobs Online

Test prep and scoring jobs are other avenues for education professionals to put their experience and education to work (from home). This list names some of the companies with test prep and scoring jobs. These test prep jobs range from tutoring companies that provide platforms for test prep tutors to connect with students to operations that are entirely devoted to test preparation and employ tutors for both on-site and online teaching jobs.

However, often lumped together with test prep jobs are "essay-editing" or, in fact, essay-writing jobs. You will not find these here because these companies are selling an unethical product. In addition to being unethical, they very well may be work-at-home scams looking to rip off hard-working writers.
