Working online under someone else's name and profile

Q: My sister recently applied for a tutoring job with good payment online. However, due to being occupied with household chores, she asked me to tutor the kids under her name and profile (without the one who hired knowing) since I am looking for a tutoring online job too. I'm not as qualified as her although I'm qualified enough to tutor those kids but I refused thinking that it would be a deception. Was this act permissible?

A: If it is done with the consent of the parents, it will be permissible.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
