How to earn money as a medical student in India?

1. Part-Time Home Tutoring

The great thing about being a medical student is that you are an experienced learner. People assume that you must be really smart if you can get into a medical college. There is a huge demand for home tutors in our country and you can make a lot of money doing it.

According to a report by the National Sample Survey Office (NSSO), one out of every four students in India takes private tuition and in a couple of states more than three out of every four students, or over 75%. There is a huge demand for private tuition, as you can see. A large percentage of students cannot fully understand classroom teaching and seek private tuition.

It’s pretty obvious that we cannot open a private coaching centre but I have some great news! Home tutors are gaining popularity because they offer one-on-one attention and other great benefits.

As a private home tutor, you could make about 300-1000 rupees an hour or more which translates to about Rs. 6,000-12,000 per month if you take 5 classes every week. Home tutoring can be lucrative and enjoyable if you enjoy interacting with people and know how to teach them.

I’d recommend tutoring school-going children because of two main reasons:

  1. The syllabus is very easy. Because it is only the basics, it won’t take much effort on your end. You’ve saving time.
  2. Because the syllabus is not vast, you don’t have to teach them every single day. Three or four times a week is sufficient and won’t take too much effort.

Some ways to reach parents who would be interested are finding out in your neighbourhood or making and distributing pamphlets in your society. If that doesn’t work out, you can search online using social media or join an online network community like SuperProf.

Part-time private home tutoring may be right for you if you are academically smart, did well in school, and have some free time despite studying in medical college.

Another great way to earn is through Chegg. It’s one of the most popular platforms for students and freelancing tutors in India. Chegg is looking for Subject Matter Experts who have strong theoretical and practical knowledge of a subject. Basically, you receive money for each academic subject query you resolve for students studying in foreign universities and colleges.
