Career Information for Typing Jobs for Stay-at-Home Moms

Tutor

Tutors help students who are struggling with specific educational concepts or subjects, or work with students to teach them learning strategies and other skills that can help them with their schoolwork. Most tutors have a bachelor's degree. While some tutors meet with students in person, there are job opportunities to tutor students online, and these positions may involve typing information for students, such as notes on their work.

Data Entry Keyers

Data entry keyers use equipment to input data. Their work may involve typing all data and then reviewing the information to make sure it's accurate. Some data entry positions also involve preparing data before it's entered into the computer system. Formal education isn't normally required, although data entry keyers need to be able to type at a high rate with accuracy, and strong communication skills are an asset in this field. While some data entry positions involve working on site, there are data entry positions that can involve working from home, and those options offer stay-at-home moms ideal opportunities to use their typing skills in a stay-at-home career.

Writers and Authors

Stay-at-home moms who like to type and have a bachelor's degree may want to think about working as a writer or author. Writers and authors may produce written material for websites or for print publication. Part of their work involves writing original content that has to be typed up before publication, and part of their work may also involve research.

Transcriptionist

Transcriptionists use their typing skills to produce typed documents. They work from audio recordings that they listen to and then type out. Some transcriptionist jobs offer stay-at-home work opportunities, and it's possible to specialize in specific areas, such as being a legal or medical transcriptionist. It may be possible to begin work as a transcriptionist without formal training, but those pursuing a specialization may need to complete some postsecondary studies to learn the appropriate terminology. Strong typing skills are essential for this career.

Editor

Some editorial opportunities are available for remote work, and stay-at-home moms who have a bachelor's degree in a relevant discipline, such as English, may find they can work as a proofreader or editor from the comfort of home. Editors review written material before it is published. They may also be involved in choosing works that will be published. Providing feedback and notes or performing corrections to a text involves typing skills, and those who work from home may also be involved in making updates to information on company websites or social media pages.

Web Developer

Web developers are the professionals who produce websites. Their work involves writing code, determining how the site will look, and incorporating all of the relevant elements together - such as graphics and applications - for an effective, functional website. Typing skills are needed to type code, produce written content, and update information. Web developers may pursue freelance opportunities and can opt to work from home most of the time, making it a career option for stay-at-home moms who like to type. An associate's degree and the ability to use code to program a website are required, as are graphic design skills.

Postsecondary Teacher

Postsecondary teachers typically need to have a doctoral degree in their discipline. While it is common for teachers to instruct students in person, there are an increasing number of opportunities for teachers to work with students online. These teachers may hold live classes over the internet, communicate with students through emails or specific communication platforms, and grade student work. They also perform administrative tasks, like updating student records and preparing their lessons. It's an option to work from home in this profession, and there is a lot of typing involved in preparing materials, grading assignments, and offering feedback to students, making this a good career option for stay-at-home moms who can type.
