Can high school students in India earn money online doing freelancing, blogging or something else instead of giving tuition to children?
I know where this question is coming from. A high school student of an Indian middle-class family wants to pursue his study but doesn’t want to take all the money from parents and want to help his or her father with some part of the fees.
So they become tutors but can they make some money online doing freelancing, blogging or something else for that matter?
The answer is YES but with a “but”. If you are trying to find something that you can do using what you already have learned in the curriculum, then it will be tough. You have to learn something new.
As a high school student in India, you have been introduced to the basics of programming. If it is something that interests you, you can learn web programming and try to work as a freelance web developer.
If programming isn’t something that interests you, here are some of the highest paid freelancing skills that you can learn.
So if you are ready to develop new skills, the answer is YES but not otherwise. If you wish you can do some data entry work and earn money online, you may end up wasting your time.
To become a blogger, it isn’t something that will help you generate the income right away and it is a long-term story. So even if you wish to be a blogger, it can’t help you generate the income you need right away.
