I can't tell you all of the jobs that suck, but I can tell you which ones are worth applying to. Not because I want you to click on my pin-worthy picture, but because I've applied for them, worked for them, and know the ins and outs of them! Here are the companies I've applied to and worked for in my past.
I worked for Kaplan as a GRE tutor and the work was fulfilling, but the scheduling didn't always line up with my life. I was making $35 and hour after the commission taken by the company. This would be a great company for an educator who can work in the evenings.
Okay, this was one of the first "jobs" I did in college. I wrote articles and tested websites to put food on the table and pay the rent. I hate the work, and for beginners, it can be tedious. HOWEVER, if you are strapped for cash, nothing is out of the question.
I have worked for Onespace, formerly Crowdsource, for nearly five years. It is a great gig when there is work. When it was Crowdsource, work was constantly flowing and I was easily making $1600 a month just through them. But as soon as they transformed to Onespace, there isn't work every day....and sometimes there isn't work for weeks. Too bad. But that doesn't mean you should apply. If you apply and get accepted, you can set an alert to check for work every day. Pick up what you can.
Love to Know
I applied for Love to Know but never heard anything back. Even when I sent a follow up email, I got nothing. So, try it, and let me know what happens!
I applied using the Google form and never heard anything back.
I worked for this company for a long time editing academic dissertations. It pays well, around $50 an hour, but I hold several graduate degrees. For a newbie, this isn't the place.
Tutor jobs are whatever. I find it impossible to tutor somebody via the internet. Chegg is great, but the work is sporadic because it is needs-based. When I worked for them, I would pull in 250 a week in of the off season and 750 per week near finals.
