  1. If you think you might have to work someday (as a homeschooling mom), I wanted to put a plug in for what I do since it takes a good year or two to get to the place where I'm at now. I work as a remote classroom transcriber for deaf and hard of hearing high school and university students. I work at home, skyping in with students all over the country for different classes, and I transcribe the lecture for them in real time (with the software I use, they can read what I type as I type it). It's really a lot of fun and I love it. It also pays well. I've made anywhere from $20 to $60/hour transcribing (with most of my work in the $25-$40/hour range). One wouldn't be able to do this job if they're the only parent at home and the kids are young (unable to be on their own for an hour or more). When you're working, you're unavailable for the most part. Here's how I got started in this field: I took the TypeWell training course ($400) and worked part time for two years on campus at a local university. My university actually paid for my training in return for a 1-year commitment, but one can also just do the training on their own. The hardest part of preparing for the remote job is getting the on-campus work. To be a good remote transcriber, one almost needs to work on-campus first and I believe both the companies I do remote work for require this. BUT, once that's established adequately, you can try to get on with one of several remote companies and work from home. I started this a little more than a year ago. Over the last school year, I worked 20-30 hours a week for about eight months, all told, taking into consideration summer, Christmas, spring breaks, etc. I'm on the west coast, and worked for schools in all time zones. I had hours spread out anywhere from 4:30 in the morning to (generally speaking) 2 or 3 in the afternoon. My ideal schedule is 5 in the morning to about 9, a 2-3 hour or so break to be with the family and then another 2-3 hours in the afternoon/evening. (This past year, my husband stayed home to do the bulk of the homeschooling; he now has a job beginning at 4:30 in the afternoon, so next year we'll share the duties.) But I've yet to see an ideal schedule established -- you're kind of at the mercy of the students' schedules and class scheduling for different schools. More what I saw was an hour or two here, an hour or two there throughout mid-afternoon. All in all, it has worked fabulously well for our family. The future looks good in this industry. The companies I work for are continuously signing up new schools. Voice-recognition software isn't really a threat in this industry because software can't follow the activity taking place in a classroom. It can't distinguish different voices talking at once, it can't orient the student to what the teacher is doing, it can't hear questions coming from the class, etc. I often type things like [on screen] when I can tell the teacher is showing the students something on a PowerPoint slide or [professor solving equation] when he's talking to himself as he finishes a math equation. Voice-recognition software also can't provide the meaning-for-meaning interpretation we provide through TypeWell; it can only attempt a word-for-word rendering (and word-for-word actually isn't in the best interest of the student). Anyway! Whenever I see posts asking what one can do for money from home, I want to pipe in about my job, but at the same time I know it's not something you can just jump into right away. It takes some planning and preparation. The training can be done in 4-8 weeks, and then a year or so of on-site work. If you want me to take a look at the websites of universities in your area to see if they offer this service (or something like it), PM me links to the schools near you. I'm happy to take a look for you. Oh, there's also the entrepreneurial route that you can take: If the schools near you don't currently offer the service, that doesn't mean you're out of luck. Usually what I've seen is that schools without this service offer ASL or note-taking to hearing impaired students, neither of which are the better service for these students. Most HOH students don't know sign language, and note-taking is just basically getting a copy of another students notes (which doesn't provide for the student to follow the class in real time). You could approach the schools either before or after completing the training to see if they are interested in testing this service for students. Feel free to ask any questions, and I can try to answer them. Thanks for reading! Best to you all.
  2. I desperately need to find a way to do some work from home. I am currently a FT online student for Medical Transcription, but we need me to be doing something now! Does anyone know of legit work at home options? I would love to do assembling something, jewelry, toys, etc. or maybe something online. I still have young children so parties and a quiet work enviroment is not an option right now unless it is late at night after 9p ET. Any ideas? Thanks
  3. I am not looking for some at home business that only pays so much depending on how many people you can recruit each month. Are there any ways to work from home that will pay a decent salary, like over $500 a month? Or even more depending on how much you can work. Every one always says medical transcripts but I can't go back to school right now. Ideas?:confused:
  4. I know we have a lot of working homeschoolers in the Hive. Whether you work at home, part time, full time, run a home business, etc...check in here to talk about how your "balance" is going. How is your current situation working for you? Do you foresee any changes? Here is my current report::D This semester, I taught one college class on Tues and Thurs from 11 am - 12:20 pm. I also supervised a graduate student on Tuesdays and worked at my therapy job from 1 pm - 8 pm on Tuesdays. I didn't like myself much on Tuesdays.:tongue_smilie: This semester is winding down. My student has finished her practicum hours, and I have written the final for my class. The last day (when my students take their final) is May 10th. I will use the rest of that week to grade the exams (25 of them) and enter grades electronically. I have made a decision not to accept any summer courses to teach. I have also decided to move to an every other week therapy schedule beginning next week. I need a break and am fortunate that I can choose not to teach for a semester and return the next one. Most jobs don't have this flexibility. That said, I love teaching, and I enjoy doing therapy. Homeschooling has not suffered this semester. I am worn thin, though. My dad has been hospitalized twice in the past two months, which has further stretched my time and resources. He is requiring a good bit of my time and energy, as he lives alone. I look forward to the summer when my out of home responsibililties will decrease. I hope to not ever again have a day like Tuesday was this semester!
  5. Hi, fairly new member here. This is the third time I am trying to post this thread. So if somehow one of you find my lost two threads with a similar title, please forgive me. I maintain a cello studio at home. I don't teach until 4 or 5 and I try to be done at 7 or 7:30. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE teaching cello and share my passion about music. On top of homeschooling, teaching cello, I also try to continue performing chamber music regularly in my community. BUT, DD1 is now 8 and she is learning so much quicker than before(last month she asked for cursive, Latin, and more science). With a 2-yr-old acting terribly to her right, it's getting harder to finish all the schooling before I teach. Although it's usually no more than 2 and a half hours a day I spare from the kids to teach, I am feeling more and more guilty and pressure when I am teaching. Besides my passion for teaching, financially I can't quit totally either. Have any of you hired a tutor or nanny while you work? My husband comes home around 6. So it feels almost silly to hire someone..... Thanks in advance.
  6. The other thread got me wondering, what do you do if you work from home? I have wanted to do something that I can work from home and make money at, but have no idea what my options are. Now how often do you work? How many hours? Is it a hassle to handle that and homeschooling, family, etc? Thank you for any help and suggestions.
  7. I would do anything to be able to be a stay at home Mom... My husband is not currently making enough to be able to support our family by himself. I work right now but I am really trying to find a way to be able to be a stay at home Mom. Right now, it looks like the only way that would be possible is to make money from home... Any suggestions? I've seen those ads to work from home and I don't know whether or not they're a scam... Has any one here been able to make money from home?
