highest paid part-time jobsThe right-paying part-time job is the perfect solution for so many people today.  Whether you are looking to supplement your income to help cover your bills, are a full-time parent, or busy student, there is a high paying part time job out there that can solve all of your problems, as long as you know where to look.  Below is a list of some of the highest paid part-time jobs of 2016.  The most education any of them require is an associate’s degree, and are likely to fit right into your busy schedule:

1)  Dental Hygienist

This is an ideal profession for finding part-time work, since many dental practices look to hire dental hygienists for a day or two a week, or to fill in when another hygienist is out sick.  It is also ideal part-time because it can be an intense and physically demanding job, and many hygienists that work full-time start to feel burned out at a certain point.  Dental hygienists need an associate’s degree, and part-time workers are highly paid, with an average salary of $30,000.

2)  Personal Trainer

Personal training is an easy part-time job to fit into your busy schedule, since people schedule training sessions at all times of the day, and on weekends.  The physical activity involved can also be a healthy change, especially if you have a full-time job that is sedentary.  While some jobs may require an associate or bachelor’s degree, it is relatively easy to land a personal training gig with only a high school diploma.  With such little education required and an average hourly pay of about $19/hr, this is one of the highest paid part-time jobs out there.

If you are looking for a part-time job in which you can make big bucks by only working a few hours a week, tutoring is one of the highest paid options.  There are no specific education requirements for this job, and certain certifications and licenses, depending on the area of study you specialize in.   It is best to establish yourself as an authority on the subject you plan to tutor in, network with other people that teach on that subject, and get your name out there through online advertising and other methods.  The average hourly pay for a tutor is about $17/hr, but teachers with experience can make up to $75/hr.
