    :help:I need a job for this summer. I am currently a substitute teacher with loan bills coming in and need something that pays at least a little bit.

    I am volunteering as a soccer coach for a children's league for two night a week. The Sylvan Learning Center (tutoring) is not hiring...none of the BOCES (SPED) have positions open because most of their teachers are return teachers from last summer or teachers who work through the summer, and summer rec has high school students as counselors.

    Let me know what you think! I really appreciate all input. The more ideas the better! There;s got to be stuff out there that I'm just not thinking of or that might be more obscure that I'm overlooking.

    I look forward to your answers! :)

    A lot of daycares have summer camp programs for older children...not a school or necessarily educational setting but you might still have to opportunity to lesson plan and definitely work with children. I would check local child care facilities!

    Lots of private schools have summer camps! For example, my school does an academic summer camp with 1/2 days of science, writing, computer, math... and the rest of the day typical camp stuff. They hire teachers for the academics and college studnets for counselors in the afternoon.

    Or, if you don't have a family, have you ever considered being a counselor at a sleep away camp? This is a way you can also save on your bills and make $ at the same time.:)

    Also, are there any teacher supply stores in your area? They love to hire people 'in the biz'

    Why limit yourself to education related jobs?

    Hit your nearest mall and apply to each and every store. Then google all the summer camps within a reasonable drive.

    I went to the local high school and talked to the guidance counselors. They gave out my name and number to parents who looking for tutors for their children. You can charge at least $15 an hr some tutors get up to $50 an hr. Depends on your area. Also, when I tutored I required at least two hrs a week.

    I'm also in upstate NY - do you have a YMCA near you? I know they have summer camps and a lot of their employees are college students who go home for the summer. It could be worth checking into.
