Remember when you were younger and you absolutely loathed doing homework? Well, thanks to the internet, you may just loathe it a little less now. And that’s because – as this is the internet we’re talking about – you can get paid to do homework for other people all from the comfort of your home (and behind your PC screen).

If this sounds like a great way to make some money on the side, and if you’ve got the brains for it, then why not give it a go?

Check out these 10 great sites to get started!

1. Tutor.com

What you’ll earn: Hourly rate is dictated by the subject you tutor

Tutor.com is a fully online tutoring service which is comprised of a network of certified teachers, college professors, graduate students and professionals with master’s degrees, PhDs and Ivy League credentials who are experts in their chosen fields.

It’s free to join but there’s a catch: you’ll need to be a current resident of, and eligible to work in, the United States or Canada. You’ll also need to be a college sophomore or higher, or hold a degree from an accredited US or Canadian university.

The whole application process can take anywhere between one and three weeks. Once your application has been accepted, you’ll be invited to take (and pass) an exam in 1 of their 21 high-demanding subjects (including physics, maths, business law and essay writing). You’ll then have to participate in a mock session and undergo a background check, after which you’ll be able to start tutoring students of all ages and help them with their homework.

2. PaperCoach

What you’ll earn: $8 and above (depending on your academic level and the complexity of the paper and its deadline)

PaperCoach provides custom paper writing services to high school, undergraduate, master’s and PhD students or whoever needs help with their course work, book reviews, essays, dissertations, admission essays, CVs, cover letters, business plans – you name it!

They rely on specialised LinkedIn groups to find writers but you can send a speculative application by sending your CV in for consideration. The good news is that although it’s a US-based company, you don’t have to be a US resident to apply.

3. HashLearn

What you’ll earn: N/A

HashLearn is an Indian mobile tutoring app which connects tutors to grade 8-12, JEE, NEET and CET students who need help with their homework. As a tutor, you’ll help alleviate students’ doubts on a variety of subjects, ranging from chemistry to maths and physics.

To apply to become a tutor, you’ll need to be a resident of India. Once you’ve chosen the topics of your expertise, you can start accepting tutoring requests whenever you wish – right on your phone – and you’ll get paid for every session you take.

4. Chegg

What you’ll earn: $20+ per hour; full-time tutors can make more than $1,000 per month

Chegg is perhaps one of the best known online tutoring sites on the internet today. It recruits tutors from top universities for a variety of high school and college subjects, including computer science, algebra, accounting, French, biology and mechanical engineering. There are literally thousands of different subjects to choose from, and applying to become a tutor in your expert area is easy – the best part is that you can be anywhere in the world to join.

Upon becoming a tutor, you’ll be able to connect with students needing help in your area – whenever it’s most convenient to you. You get paid each week, and you can download the Chegg app to stay connected on the go.

5. Eduboard

What you’ll earn: You set the price for your services, with Q&A-based assistance usually starting at $2 and can go up to $25 a question

Eduboard allows students to ask expert tutors for help in more than 30 different subjects, including maths, physics and chemistry. Students place orders for homework help, essay writing, assignments and everything in between, and you can bid on those that you like. Payments are made once a month with a 20% commission deducted.

To apply to become an online tutor on Eduboard, you’ll either need to be in your senior year of college or have already graduated from an accredited university in Canada or the US.

6. School Solver

What you’ll earn: Varies

Self-proclaimed as the ‘marketplace for school homework’, School Solver is a renowned homework and assignment helping platform which has been referred by tech giants such as Forbes, Mashable and TechCrunch.

Students ask questions in every single subject imaginable, and your answers can be purchased by not just the student who asked the question but also others after him. This means that where you would normally earn $5, for example, you could actually make as much as $500 over time.

7. HelpWithAssignment

What you’ll earn: N/A

HelpWithAssignment is made up of PhD professors, MBA corporate leaders, writers, bloggers, teachers, mathematicians, historians and scientists whose goal is to help students with their assignments in a variety of subjects, like law, maths, marketing and nursing.

To become an online tutor at HelpWithAssignment, you’ll need a minimum of 2 years’ work/teaching experience and a master’s or PhD degree holder in your chosen subject. You’ll also need to undergo various tests before you’re able to help students improve their Excel skills, for example.

8. Growing Stars

What you’ll earn: N/A

Based in the US, Growing Stars is another great website to make money online by helping students with their homework. You’ll mostly work with young children from grades 3 to 12, offering about 2 hours of one-on-one tutoring a week in your expert area.

To apply to join Growing Stars’ team of online tutors, you’ll need to complete the candidate registration form as well as submit your CV. You’ll also need to be educated in your chosen subject, from C++ programming to creative writing and biology to chemistry.

9. Freelancer

What you’ll earn: You set your own prices

Freelancer is one of the best online platforms to find freelance work like designing websites or translating. That being said, you can also find and apply for opportunities to help students with their homework.

It’s free and easy to join. All you need to do is set up a public profile and start applying for relevant jobs.

10. Upwork

What you’ll earn: You set your own prices

Upwork basically does the same thing that Freelancer does. It lets people submit projects that they need completed, and freelancers bid on the ones that interest them and that match their skills. There are no registration fees, but you will be charged a commission for each project you complete.
