Any home based job ideas for a non-native who is not even a US resident?

Hello All,
I'm so happy I've found this wonderful site! I'm Judit from Hungary, married, and a happy mom of two little girls.
I've been an ESL teacher (with 3 Master of Arts degrees) for 12 years at language schools. I've been teaching groups, classes and individuals, from elementary to advanced level, general and business English, as well.
Half a year ago I started to look for some work at home opportunities that are legitimate, do not need any investments and available for those who are not US residents. And most importantly they are not scams.
However, unfortunatelly I cannot say I've found many:-(.
Here, in Hungary the economic crisis (and its consecvences) has reached its peak. Partly that is why I want to give up my job in order not to take stress home, get rid of being dependent on the Hungarian economic situation, and spend more time with my family. Could you recommend me some opportunities that I could do from home, earning a continuous salary? I'm open to learn, but I'm not the type who would be successful at MLM :-(, cold calling, or selling products.
I could work 4-6 hours a day.
Online teaching could be an option, however, I haven't tried teaching online yet, and I'm not sure whether any online teaching companies employ non-native teachers?!?
I'm also interested in other jobs that I could do from home.
Waiting for your ideas! :-D
Thanks in advance!!!!!

Oh I also know people that make baked goods and such and sell them at farmers markets here. Some people make pies, others make things like raviolis and freeze them. I don't know if you have anything like that where you live though. Even if you found a way to market them online you might do well. People love homemade food, since most people don't have time to make it themselves they will pay for them.

For me my skill base is arts and crafts so that is what i do at home. One job which pays very little to be honest. I make digital items using photoshop( there's the investment part right there) And sell them to real people in a virtual world. Hard to explain it to be honest. But my sales depends. I make enough that i have to file for taxes but it isn't equal to a full time job.

My other "job" is i make different homemade items mostly blankets and sell them on etsy.
