Have you ever thought about teaching your favorite subject to other students? Tutoring not only offers a stable source of income, but it also helps you to dive deeper into the subject you're teaching. Plus, it's an impressive addition to your university applications. Moreover, it could broaden your connections. Parents of the students you tutor could become valuable references, especially if you do a great job.

Leslie’s Answer

To get started and learn experience, my advice is to get a job either at a grocery store, ice cream place, babysit, golf club, lifeguard etc. There are many places that would hire and help you gain experience. Having a job does more then just earn you money, it teaches you discipline, hard work, people skills, to name a few. It looks good on your resume too that you held part time jobs while attending school.

I would say having seasonal jobs, or if you have any social skills, become an influencer and make your passions known to others.

A. Michelle’s Answer

Consider your skills, interests and availability. Do you do well in an academic subject area? Are you a talented musician or athlete? Consider tutoring or coaching others. Are the hours you have to work limited due to other commitments? If yes, consider working for yourself which will give you more flexibility about when to work than if you work for someone else’s business. To boost your savings, consider having money you earn or from gifts automatically transferred to a savings or other account you either can’t access or don’t access as much.

Skyler’s Answer

If you're unable to work during the school year, consider landing a summer job. Alternatively, if you're keen to earn some cash while classes are still in session, why not turn a hobby into a money-making venture? You could delve into blogging or become an influencer if that's your thing. Other great options include selling your used clothes and books, offering babysitting services, walking dogs, or even tutoring online. There's always a way to make money doing what you love!
