2. Online Teacher
Whether you specialize in ESL, computer science, or SAT prep, online tutoring may be a profitable way to earn a career from home or supplement your current wage.

PayScale reports that the average hourly wage for online instructors is $19.65.
3. Adjunct Professor/Instructor Online
Tenured positions are difficult to come by these days, but one benefit for postsecondary educators is that virtual professor/instructor opportunities are expected to rise. When you can teach from the comfort of your own home, the comparatively modest income for adjunct instructors is much easier to take.
Pay: The average yearly salary for online adjunct lecturers is $20,000, according to Glassdoor.
4. Writing Mentor
According to a PayScale research from 2016, 44 percent of managers said that writing skills were the hardest for fresh graduates to learn.
You may assist to reverse this trend by working with students and business customers to improve these critical abilities. Writing coach jobs, like tutoring, have profited from innovations such as video conferencing, making it simpler than ever to engage with students remotely.

5. Curriculum Designer
Curriculum developers are described as follows by Chegg Internships: "If the classroom were a play, the Curriculum Developer would be the Playwright who crafts the tale and writes the dialogue."
You know what works and what doesn't if you've spent a large amount of time in the classroom teaching your own stuff. Put your knowledge to good use and start a second career as a curriculum developer. Curriculum developers are often advertised on major job sites. Some, such as Indeed, will allow you to search for home-based jobs.
Curriculum developers make an average yearly compensation of $62,512, according to PayScale.
6. Provider of Teaching Materials
If you already have your teaching materials perfected through years of trial and error in the classroom, why not share that wealth of information while making your hard work pay off again and again? Sites like Teachers Pay Teachers enable you to share your lesson ideas, activities, classroom décor, and more—while also earning money.
You're unlikely to earn a fortune this way, although some vendors seem to do fairly well. Julie Bochese, a former elementary school teacher, tells USA Today that she earns four times the money she earned as a second-grade teacher selling lesson plans.
7. Educational Author
For instructors who are no longer in the classroom, educational publishing is a natural match. According to PayScale, freelance writers often earn between $12 and $64 per hour, depending on the intensity of the concentration, the amount of research necessary, and the degree of writing/reporting to be done.
If the independent lifestyle does not appeal to you, consider working for a firm.
Flexible schedules, including full-time telecommuting employment and contract assignments, are becoming more popular among employers across all sectors.
If you're prepared to do some diligent job research, you may be able to locate the ideal educational writing employment that allows you to work from home.
Compensation: According to PayScale, the average yearly salary for freelance writers is $39,555.
Some educational testing firms provide work-from-home opportunities for exam scoring and evaluation. These positions often demand a bachelor's degree and teaching experience. Educational Testing Service (ETS) is one such organization that is continually searching for online and onsite test scorers for the TOEFL, GRE, and other examinations. This is often a part-time work that is seasonal, since demand changes throughout the year.
Test scorers receive an average yearly compensation of $55,030, according to Glassdoor.
As previously stated, strong writing abilities are desired. If you're looking for something completely different, you may utilize your skills as a blogger focused on educational topics—or any issue close to your heart about which you know a lot.
To get started in this sector, plan to start pitching before you leave the classroom for good.
Full-time writing jobs are based on relationships, and you'll need to start building yours before you commit.
Bloggers earn an average yearly pay of $39,344, according to PayScale.
It's a nasty little professional secret that consultants often earn more than workers for providing comparable knowledge. You may start a company coaching teachers and administrators if you have an entrepreneurial drive. It should be noted that you will most likely need to interact with customers personally, therefore this work is not totally home-based. Being your own employer, on the other hand, provides a great degree of freedom (as well as responsibility).
Income: According to Glassdoor, the average yearly salary for educational consultants is $61,592.
