How do tutors earn money on Course Hero?

Tutors on Course Hero earn money by authoring correct answers and helpful explanations to questions that are asked by students and other users on Course Hero. Tutors on Course Hero can earn up to $1,500+ per month by leveraging their knowledge and expertise to help students around the world. Actual earnings for each tutor will vary, however, depending on the number of questions answered, question difficulty, question subject, and answer quality among other factors.


Tutors can choose the subjects in which they want to answer questions depending on their education, background, and preferences. Questions range in length and complexity, and the estimated payout for each question can be viewed before a tutor chooses to answer a question, so tutors have the ability to decide which types of questions they want to answer.


Providing correct, helpful, and unique answers and explanations that help students learn is of the utmost importance to Course Hero and our tutor community. With this in mind, we require all tutors to uphold Course Hero’s Honor Code, Academic Integrity Policy, Copyright Policy, and Terms of Use at all times.
