Does anyone know how to make money at home with typing skills or math skills?

I really love typing and doing math. I love to answer questions and look up info on-line. I am very good at writing short stories also. Does anyone know of any jobs on-line for this type of work?

  • It's hard to find ways to make money online that are actually legit and actually free. I made a list of the good ones I use and you can see it here:

  • I work from home as a medical transcriptionist; you can try going on a few sites I have listed and see if you find a course you can take and then work from home. I've been doing this for 4 years.

  • I don't know about online (they don't seem worth it) but what about math tutoring? I tutor and charge $46 an hour. The tutoring place (which is one of those chains) I work for right now charges $32-40 an hour for 3 on 1 instruction and $50 for 1 on 1 attention. My dad has had his own math tutoring business for 30 years (he's a teacher, too) and he makes about his teaching salary every year, and he only charges $31 and is an expert in all levels. Aim high! Tutoring clients often go for the more expensive tutor because they want the best for their children.

  • I forgot to mention that you can have the kids come to your house. My neighbor does that for science and she has a hefty business, too.

  • Check out my website for information about how I work from home. Good luck in your search! There are a few websites that I work with that you get paid to write articles or short stories. If you have any questions let me know!

  • I've never tried it, but you sound perfect for this thing called cha cha? Someone around her must know more about it. It's a lot of work, but you seem cut out for it.

    I write articles (my husband spell checks) 300 works $6 - $10 a pop. You sound like you'd be perfect for that job also.
