1. Language tutor
Being a language tutor, you have to take care of foreign students (most of them are beginners) about the learning progress.
You must think it has strict requirements to be a language tutor. In fact, it is easier than you imagine! Everyone must have at least one language that you can master in – your mother language. As a native speaker, you should be capable of teaching foreigners about your language! Put yourself into others’ shoes, if you want to learn a new language, what do you desire to know first? The answer is exactly the same as what those foreigners need.
