Are you a teacher looking to make a little extra cash?

Familiar with any of the following tests: Common Admission Test (CAT), AP Calculus or GED?

Then you’ll be happy to learn that test prep company Magoosh is hiring remote, part-time bloggers.

Here are the details…

How to Work as a Blogger for Magoosh

Magoosh’s mission is simple (and awesome): “create products that give students everywhere access to enjoyable, affordable, and quality test prep.”

The company helps “millions study at their own pace, on their own time, regardless of location, social status, or background,” and wants to “change the test prep experience for all.”

Want to contribute to the worthy cause? It’s hiring content writers for three of its programs: CAT, AP Calculus and GED.

In this role, you’ll have the next three months to write 50-100 informative articles about your chosen topic. These will become the core content of Magoosh’s new blogs, and once each launches, you’ll have the potential to write more.

You’ll work from home and earn $25-$75 per article, “depending on the complexity of the topic.”

The job listing encourages you to apply even if you don’t meet all the requirements — which include previous experience as a tutor or teacher in your topic and a deep understanding of the exam, as well as a bachelor’s degree, attention to detail and strong writing skills.

“Extra credit” if you have a blog, WordPress skills, published writing or experience with other standardized tests.
