    I have already found a wealth of knowledge on this site, but I still have two questions:

    1) I've seen a lot of conversations about subjects that have a high demand for instructors and subjects where the market is already saturated. I'm looking to teach mathematics and was wondering what the market looked like for math instructors.

    2) I'm going to be finishing my master's degree up in the spring of 2009 and was wondering if it would be a good idea to start applying for positions ahead of my graduation date. It seems like I have read quite a bit about it taking a while to get your first job and was wondering if a little head start was a good idea.

    Thanks for the help!

    I would strongly recommend to specialize in statistics or mathematical finance if your are planning to teach online. Any school teaching MBA programs online could be a good start for you.

    Math is always an area of high demand.

    Math is always good (I second or third that) but you should wait until you have completed the degree. I am trying to help a friend get her first teaching job at a school I teach at and was told, "we won't do anything until she has her degree".

    Does your local CC have an academic skills center?
    If so have you considered working part time there as a math tutor?
    That way you get to make contacts and gain experience that could help you get a math teaching position after your degree is awarded.
