Companies such as WebWise require a license from applicants who wish to hold online tutoring jobs. WebWise's K-12 general tutoring requirements include legal work authorization in the United States, a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution and a full teaching certification from a state education department.
Tutors who want to work with special education students must have a special education certification from the relevant state. Tutoring college students is only available for individuals with a bachelor's or master's degree in the relevant subject. Ideally, prospective college tutors should show previous experience in the field they wish to tutor.
WebWise's application process takes roughly four to six weeks.
