What is TÐµÐ°ÑhAwÐ°Ñ RÐµviÐµw?
TeachAway is an online community of tutors and students. Unlike other online tutoring platforms such as TutorVista. TeachAway is a marketplace where tutors are not bound to a strict schedule.
It is based in Canada in Toronto, Ontario and Vancouver, British Columbia, the USA, UK, and Australia. TeachAway has been around since 2003, which is a good indication that they’re doing something right.
That doesn’t mean there are no complaints, but it’s usually a good sign when a company (especially an online company) survives and continues to grow over many years.
How does TÐµÐ°ÑhAwÐ°Ñ RÐµviÐµw work?
TeachAway is excellent for someone with an outgoing personality who loves to teach and, of course, wants to work from home.
For people who are merely looking for a way to make money online, TeachAway can provide that opportunity, but this is still a job. You can make your own schedule, but you can’t leverage the web to earn a significant income.
You’re still trading your hours for dollars and getting paid once for the work you do.
A big reason people turn to the internet to make money is that it allows you to multiply your efforts online in ways you can’t offline. If you created a course, for example, rather than teaching the same material over and over, you would teach it once (for your course), and you could earn passive income on that course for many years to come.
What are the requirements to work for TÐµÐ°ÑhAwÐ°Ñ RÐµviÐµw?
TeachAway does NOT have any specific educational requirements, and you don’t have to be a certified teacher.
This will be great news for some and not so great for others.
If you do have a list of qualifications and certifications, it can help you stand out in the marketplace but you will also be competing with less qualified tutors willing to charge a lot less.
How do you earn money on TÐµÐ°ÑhAwÐ°Ñ RÐµviÐµw?
