3. Tutor

The nitty-gritty: If teaching experience is in your bag of tricks, then you'll find plenty of opportunities in working as a private tutor. Some prep firms hire tutors to help teens and adults with standardized tests and professional certification exams. They provide tools and training materials. Fall and spring are the top seasons for college-bound kids to take the SAT and ACT aptitude tests. A demand also exists for ongoing private tutoring in a range of subjects to boost student grades.
The hours: Tutoring sessions can last anywhere from an hour after school to three hours on weekends. Sessions can take place at your place, theirs, the library or online. Plan to work at least four hours a week.
Median pay range: $10.27 to $24.21, but landing rates as high as $65 an hour isn't unusual.
Qualifications: A background in education and working with students in a classroom is generally a prerequisite. A certified teacher is preferred. That said, professional experience can open doors. Experts in a range of fields from nursing to finance, law and business may find opportunities, as can those with foreign language skills. No chalkboard needed.
