I worked as a professor of accounting ^ finance for more that 20 years for the distance learning programs of Citi Universiaty in Seatle, Washington State, and NYIY for their campus in UAE and Egypt

Would like to register as on line teacher (Professor)

I have a Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology, practiced for a few years then decided to make a career change in corporate training.  I just completed a Master's Degree in Instructional Design and Educational Technology.  I'm a single parent and have three children and will soon be needing to spend more time with my parents and spend more time helping them out.  I can't continue in my current career because it requires too much travel and time away from home.

I have completed internships in Instructional Design, and one in Content Development.  But my only experience in teaching in the field of academia was my work as a Graduate Assistant for 2 years while I was finishing my graduate degree in Clinical Psychology. I have been trying to find an opportunity to teach Introduction to Psychology and other classes I'm qualified to teach at Community/Technical Colleges and some 4 year colleges - since I'm not qualified to teach classes beyond the Associate degree level and some at Bachelor degree level. 

In time I will need to find an opportunity to work from home, and would love to become an online instructor.  I'm praying someone has a suggestion that will help me.

This is a question which is asked by many. I get frequent request for inputs. I started teaching online from 2010 and have been at it since then. My experience tells me that there are many forms of online teaching. You can join online schools or colleges or you can tutor on your own like I do. To work for established schools and colleges you need degrees and qualification as required by them . On the other hand if you tutor the it is your knowldge, availablility and dedication is what matters. You also have to figure out what kind of course you want to teach  at what level. The field is now too diverse and wide to merit an answer in few words.
