Become a Tutor - Somebody Needs You
One of the things I did to help put myself through college in addition to the usual food service, buildings and ground, and other "heavy-lifting", sweat-inducing jobs, was to tutor students in music.
In fact I student taught a few classes, but you don't need to be as formal as that. Somebody, somewhere, almost certainly needs help with knowledge you already have.
And you don't have to be an expert in the field, but you do have to know enough to either be able to help them outright or point them in the right direction. In fact, sometimes it's better if you've struggled through the material yourself because you're more likely to be identify their sticking points and help them get unstuck.
Online Tutoring Jobs
There are actually quite a few online tutoring companies now that offer online tutor jobs. Or typically they are more like online freelance work.
There are also smaller online tutoring services and people offering their own tutoring service via the web.
For most people though it's going to be easier to hook up with an online tutoring company so I've started a list of them below. Also, this can be excellent work for people looking for work at home jobs.
