30. Tutoring

If you retired from a full-time career as a teacher or professor, you are more than qualified to be a part-time tutor during your retirement. By having a resume of several years of experience in a certain field, it should be easy for you to become a tutor in the subject that you are once taught in. Or, if you have a college degree in a demanding field like mathematics, science, or computer science, then you may be able to still get a tutoring gig during your retirement, too. However, keep in mind that if it has been a long time since you went to school, you might forget some of that knowledge. So make sure that whatever you offer tutoring in, you are up-to-date.
