As you’ll see below, some of these lucrative tutoring jobs have certain requirements about one’s placement in college: Some require tutors to be sophomore-level or higher at an accredited school, for example. But other tutoring gigs have laxer qualifications.

Here’s a selection of tutoring companies that hire college students — or just employees of college age.


Tutor.com says that everyone from college students to teachers and STEM professionals can apply to be a tutor with the company. If you don’t have a four-year degree from an accredited university, you just have to be enrolled as a sophomore or higher at an accredited school. Tutor.com tutors work with students “of all ages and stages,” the company says, and they get paid on a regular basis without the need to invoice.

Studypool claims that you can earn up to $7,500 each month tutoring students from home — and that the service charges the lowest service fees in the market, starting at 20 percent. According to Bankrate, many college students become Studypool tutors to earn extra money while in school.


Cambly, a tutoring service for 1-on-1 English language lessons, says that you don’t need a bachelor’s degree, a teaching certificate, or even any teaching experience to get started. For Cambly sessions, tutors earn $0.17 a minute ($10.20 an hour), and for Cambly Kids sessions, tutors earn $0.20 a minute ($12 an hour).
