15 year old looking for part-time work

    15 year old looking for part-time work


    I'm currently looking for a part-time job for the weekends or after school but as I only speak English I'm not sure what jobs would be open to me - any suggestions?

    As I'm a Native English speaker and I love kids, I was considering going into tutoring for children under the age of 10 but I'm not sure if parents would be willing to hire a teenager with no previous experience to tutor their kids when they could hire a professional at a centre (although I would admittedly have cheaper prices).

    I was also thinking about babysitting but in Hong Kong it seems to be very hard to find someone who doesn't have a helper who can watch the kids.

    Any suggestions or advice would be welcome

    Thank you so much,

    Tutoring sounds like a good idea. Many university students tutor but as a Native speaker (white foreigner?) you should be able to get some students. What district are you in as I imagine different districts may also offer some different opportunities? Have you considered car washing or cleaning? Its tough because if you were back in your home country you would have a lot more options. While many foreigners have domestic helpers there are many like myself who do not but would be willing to pay someone to take care of a few jobs here and there.

    Thank you so much for your message I live in Tai Po but I'm fine with working in most places on Hong Kong Island or in Kowloon side. I have considered car-washing and cleaning but with most people having helpers it seems like a small market!

    If you (or any of your friends!) have a job you'd like doing please don't hesitate to message me
