Tutoring is a decent side hustle that can allow you to make money teaching people certain skills and forms of information that they might not get traditionally in school or that they might have trouble learning about in a regular educational setting. Practically anyone is capable of becoming a tutor. However, some skills are necessary to become good at being a tutor like being able to be good at public speaking and interacting with your students.
“You’re going to be called on to give presentations, answer questions, have meetings with your boss, interview for new jobs. The art of public speaking follows you around,” said Jen Glantz, a found of the Odd Jobs Newsletter when describing the kind of basic skills necessary to become a decent tutor in the modern job landscape.
As described in our video above, being a tutor has some benefits. For one, you can choose to be a tutor in person, doing it live with students in the same space. However, this is a job that - thanks to modern technology - you can do at home through the power of the internet. So, you can do it online or in person - whichever option best suits your needs.
So how much can you make from such a position? According to Indeed, people make twenty-five United States dollars an hour on average, giving you far above minimal wage if you can find enough clients. You can easily sign up by signing up for sites like Varsity Tutors, Wyzant, and Tutor Me to be an online or in-person tutor.
