In almost every university abroad, if you are pursuing a bachelor’s or master's and you have completed the 1st year with grades more than or equal to B then you are eligible to be a tutor. Helping with homework, helping in labs, these kinds of roles. You will be easily earning $8-12 dollars per hour and the plus point is this job is not
