Are you sitting at home with nothing to do? Or worse because you have nothing your parents are giving you chores. Are you especially good in one or more subjects in school and get good grades? Have you ever thought about taking up tutoring as an after school or weekend activity? Tutoring is a great way to both get out of the house in any free hours of the day and make some solid money. The amazing part about tutoring is how easy it is! You can tutor; your friends, their friends, even strangers (Make sure to ALWAYS have parents permission for both you and whoever your tutoring.) To be a tutor all you really need is knowledge in whatever subject/ subjects your tutoring in. As for the payment part, as a 12-13 year old you could probably get away three dollar an hour. But think about it; three dollars an hour, two hours a day, five days a week, that’s about $30 a week. If you do that for a year that’s $1,080! Plus if you get some experience now, while your young, tutoring could become a future high school- and beyond- job. Tutoring can be especially rewarding once you graduate high school and earn your diploma. Most high school grad tutors make $10-$15 an hour. So again, let’s do the math; $10 dollars a hour, two hours a day, five days a week, for 36 weeks, that’s $3,600 dollars a year. Then when your bathing in your tutoring riches you’ll look back and realize that all it took to get where you are was good grades and a little tutoring here and there in junior high school.
