Looking for a way to stay in shape and make some cash at the same time? Being a part-time yoga or pilates instructor can be hugely beneficial and - once you're established - can generate a nice income. Interested parties need to become certified, which is easy to do in your off hours through a certified studio. Once certified, instructors can make anywhere from $20-$40 an hour for classes to sometimes $100 hour for private sessions.

Tutoring another language part-time can yield decent pay - especially in more metropolitan areas where it's not unheard of to charge $40 for an hour long one-on-one session in a coffee shop. But the real jackpot is getting contracted to work with large companies that need to give their executives a base of a foreign language for business purposes. Obviously you'll need to be fluent in another language, but to get the really lucrative jobs you'll need to have a legitimate language certification - preferably a business language certification. Gaining a contract with an individual company to teach their employees certain foreign language business basics can net you anywhere from $25 to $60.
