There are various ways to earn 15/H.

It will be best if you like the work you are doing too.

Do you have any specific set of skills? Such as copyrighting,lifesaving for events, photography, etc. These skills will be able to give 15/H.

Alternatively you can be a private tutor tutoring Secondary school kids or even list your skills on fiverr.

Also it is good to invest in yourself to learn a new skill to generate side income. There are various courses on that. You can google it up.

I'm also a student and is currently side-hustling for income.

You can consider some of these skillset in demand right now:

1) Digital Marketing - more leads generated, your income multiplies

2) Coding/Data Analytics - Companies moving towards AI, Cloud models are hiring people who knows how to code and analyse the data for them

3) Tuition - Singapore is a Tuition nation, will be able to earn $20-30/hr as a student

Definitely agree with this! Furthermore, if you are looking into getting a side-hustle for income in the long term, you can consider taking an online course to help you get a head start in a specific field. Even better if these skils are considered 'recession-proof' and can help you in your full time job in the future as well!! I found this article pretty useful, you can check it out (: All the best :D https://thesmartlocal.com/read/training-courses-smartcademy/

Here are some ways:

  1. Private tuition - definitely more than $15 an hour. You will also learn how easy it is to understand a concept yourself, but difficult to get someone else to understand it.

  2. Work out instructor - if you are able to (and also qualified), teaching group classes would pay more than $15 an hour. I think this spans anything from yoga to HIIT to zumba

  3. Dog walking - apparently it pays anywhere from $13-25 per walk

  4. On a same thread - pet sitting. Said to pay $15 an hour

  5. If you are skilled in video editting/photoshop/graphic design - take up projects on the side

  6. Likewise for writing good copy

Hi Anon,

Besides some of the ways already mentioned amogst the answers, I believe freelancing might be suitable for you in terms of applying a skill and its flexibility in taking up a project as well.

You may consider looking up Fiverr or Upwork and they usually have a small fee for freelancers to bid on a project. Here's a link that provides a comparison on the platforms as well as some more alternatives you may consider!

Hope this helps, all the best! :-)

Be realistic lol...the market rate is only 6-7 dollars per hour for average work and 8-10 for semi skilled. It’s almost unheard of for 15+ onwards without having specific skill set

When i was in my uni time, part time tutor is the most popular part time job. You can earn quite a lot if you spend more time to get more students. But you need to make sure you have enough time for your study as well.

Would like to advise that investing is not a fullproof solution to earn 15/h. If you're trying to amass your savings, start off via more stable means such as admin jobs (think pays 1.5-2k/month?) or things like tutoring, and maybe via this you can invest a small amount just to have a dip into the investment scene.
