1. Tutor

Pay: $10.90 to $18.85

Job Description: Being a tutor can earn extra money which can be re-invested to your own needs. It can be done at your own convenience, through an agency such as Champion Learning or Academic Advantage. Simply, negotiate the session time with clients and decide how much of your time you want to commit. The skills you develop as a tutor are transferable and valued in the work place. And by helping others to learn, you learn new skills and knowledge as well.



2. Childcare Worker/Babysitter

Pay: $7.82 - $10.18

Job Description: Get a job in childcare and you will be in demand! Good childcare providers (informally known as babysitters) are not only needed by many parents, but they are usually busy with repeat jobs for the same families. You get paid on the spot. You can vary the number of kids you sit depending on your comfort level. And you get to spend your time with children. Sounds great! Unless, of course, you don't like children.



3. Wedding/Party Planner

Pay: $31,049 to $43,668

Job Description: Party planners conceive, organize, and execute special affairs such as weddings, birthday parties, anniversaries, and bar and bat mitzvahs. They custom design an event to suit their customers' needs and budgets. Yes, it can be a full-time job. But it works well as a part-time job as well. The great thing about party planning is that it's a good, quick income. And it allows you to showcase creativity.



4. Answering Service

Pay: $9.46 to $12.69

Job Description: This entails answering incoming calls from offices (i.e. doctors offices, apartment complexes, etc.) after normal business hours and relay information per specific account protocol. It's pretty easy and for the most part, stationary, which can be a good or bad thing. The pay is pretty good and all you need is good people skills and a pleasant phone presence. Oh, and patience.



5. Scheduler

Pay: $11.92 to $17.51

Job Description: This is similar to the working for an answering service in the fact that it does not entail much physical activity. Schedulers handle client calendar and updates appointments as needed. The job is pretty flexible and great for anyone who has great organizational skills.



6. Medical Biller

Job Description: Medical Billing and its related occupations continue to be the fastest growing opportunities in health care.

I work for legitimate work from home job and yes these opportunities do exist. I enjoy the savings in gas in commuting to work, spending more time with family, and working in my PJ's which more than makes up for the opportunity cost of an even higher paying job where I have to actually leave my home and work in an office. In addition, I am involved in other online work that supplements my main work from home job immensely. I do pretty well and you can view the site here: No hype, it's just the truth. www.200-1000daily.com. Times are changing and more and more jobs are moving into the work from home space.
