Do Homework for Money
By Eric Hammer
This title is a bit misleading. You're not really doing homework
for money. Instead, you're helping people with their homework
for money. This is a very important distinction: academic fraud
is highly problematic from a moral standpoint if not from a legal
standpoint. However, helping someone with their homework for
money is perfectly acceptable -- it's called tutoring.
Basically, what you would do is to help adults and children
with questions that they don't understand in exchange for money.
The way you do it is through various answer websites similar
to Yahoo! Answers and Amazon Askville. The difference however
is that these places pay you with cash instead of points so that
you can earn real money for sharing what you know.
You can also go the more traditional tutoring route, offering
to tutor children and adults online, again, helping with homework
for money, though not necessarily doing homework for money. There
are of course some places where you can literally do homework
for money. A number of websites specialize in providing custom
written academic papers and while it's technically not a crime
to do so, it is considered highly immoral.
How Much Can You Make?
While some people do make their entire living from this, most
people make a few dollars a month, sometimes as much as a few
hundred dollars a month. Websites that pay for offering to help
with homework for money typically offer around 25-50% of the
amount paid by the person asking the question, acting as kind
of middle man.

Those wishing to make this a career can of course get tutoring
jobs and indeed, we've added a couple of places where you can
work online as tutor for more money than these question answering
In all cases remember that you will need to provide a high
quality answer which truly answers the question and is authoritative.
People who are paying for answers to these questions are not
after all willing to spend money for a one line answer which
is offered flippantly.
Qualifications / Requirements
You'll need a computer with Internet access along with either
specialized knowledge in certain areas or the ability to research
questions in specific areas. Think of this as being very similar
to working with places like Yahoo! Answers with the difference
being that the often flippant answers you see on such sites are
a waste of time here.
