Do you have a degree but don’t know how you can use it in a part time at home job or side hustle? Then maybe you haven’t considered tutoring. Unlike traditional offline tutoring where you meet with a student in person, you can tutor students online. Let’s find out how Course Hero is making this happen.
Tutor with Course Hero
Course Hero is a community of educators, subject experts, and students, helping students gain the knowledge they need to succeed in school!
During the last 10 years, academic tutoring has changed due to technology. Video, voice, and online teaching tools make it possible for tutors and students to connect from around the world. So, no matter where a tutor or student lives, the tutor can use technology to bring understanding to the student at an affordable price. And, it’s this availability that increased the demand for online tutors to work for Ed-tech firms like Course Hero.
What is the Tutor Paid?
Top tutors earn an average of $500 per week! You get to choose your working hours. Tutors choose what hours they want to work and how many hours, also. Your pay would reflect how many hours you choose to work per pay period.
Requirements to Tutor
To become a tutor, you need a Bachelor’s degree and be a fluent English-speaker. Applications are open to residents of the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Australia.

What other Tutors are Saying
… On your own schedule
When we asked about the top benefit of online tutoring, Chelsea, a Psychology tutor for Course Hero, didn’t hesitate: “Convenience!” Weather and distance have no impact on online tutoring, which means you can tutor students around your schedule, around the globe. Ivon, a Course Hero Chemistry tutor, agrees. “As long as there is a stable Internet connection and a common language, you’re good to go.”
You’ll supplement your income …
Let’s be honest: One of the most popular benefits of online tutoring is earning additional income on your own time. While it’s entirely possible to support yourself by tutoring, most online tutors work to earn supplemental income—to pay for anything from a big purchase or a vacation, for example. “The income I’ve earned from online tutoring has helped me [cover our] home expenses. Also, I’ve been able to help my little brother pay for his high school studies in my home country,” says Juan, a Math tutor for Course Hero.
You’ll hone your skills and stay current
Online tutoring is an effective way to develop your own understanding of a subject, says Faisal, an Accounting and Finance tutor for Course Hero. “It’s all about the pursuit to share the knowledge that I’ve acquired over the last 10-plus years of my corporate career. Online tutoring has given me an opportunity to hone my skills and [also] immense flexibility to cater to a large audience.”
You’ll help students and showcase your passion
Most online tutoring platforms, Course Hero included, strive to connect students to the right tutors. The presence of literally thousands of highly knowledgeable tutors available online gives students the opportunity to learn from true subject matter experts. “The most enjoyable aspect of online tutoring is the opportunity to help students who fall within my areas of expertise. I love the chance to help them learn while showcasing my passion for the subject,” says Saba, a Course Hero Accounting and Finance tutor.
You’ll have those aha! moments
The most satisfying moment for all educators, and that includes tutors, is seeing that light bulb go on when a student suddenly understands something. Can you have an aha! moment online? Priyanka, a Course Hero Chemistry tutor, explains that you can, “When a student solves similar types of problems effortlessly, then I know he or she got it.”
