Who Wants Tutoring!?
December 1, 2009 9 Comments
I thought that December would be a slow month for tutoring because the semester is ending on December 18th – so I would essentially only get 3 weeks of tutoring students instead of 4 weeks. BOY WAS I WRONG!
I tutored one girl three hours yesterday and three hours today. She only pulled out enough cash from the ATM to pay me for 5 hours, so she still owes me $20. I don’t count money that I don’t have in my hands into my total – so I received $100 from her today. (I don’t believe in counting money that is “in the mail” towards your total, because you may never get it!)
Then I tutored another girl 2.5 hours this evening – for a total of $50.
So in 24 hours I managed to get $150 in “extra” cash. Not to mention that on Thursday I’ll be subbing for another prof at the community college, so I’ll get an “extra” $100 from doing that.
I’ll most likely be tutoring all three of my tutoring clients during finals week. So I estimate I’ll get at least $100 from that (at least). I have 3 paychecks this month from the community college PLUS my sub money – so I’ll get around $780 from the community college this month.
With my other month from tutoring online (~$30 for December) and surveys (have a $3 check headed my way!) – I think it is completely feasible that my “extra” income this month could top $1000! Holy crap! That’s a ton of money! I’m setting my December goal to be $1,000 of extra income. (Normally I set this at $600). It’s like the universe KNEW that I needed some extra money to go home for Christmas. =D
