As things stand I have still to decide to which Uni I will be going. I spotted a nice one in Melbourne and one that doesn't look too bad in London but I still need to check a few other countries.

Im hijacking this thread again to announce that I am FINALLY graduating this weekend. After nine years of college (yes, I was in college for almost a decade...but I got four degrees out of it!) I am finally finished, as this Sunday I will be snagging a Masters in Education. By January, once all the paperwork and other bureaucratic nonsense is finished up, I will be officially certified to teach Social Studies to 7-12th graders in NY.

Now for the fun part...finding a teaching job in the middle of the school year...

Best of luck to you, Rob. And props, for being able to say that college was the best 9 years of your life, thus one-upping Van Wilder.

Well the main challenge is finding a job in the middle of the school year, since its rare that a teacher will leave in the middle of the year. I was hoping to get into subbing, but you have to get enrolled with an agency that acts as a middle man, so when a school needs a substitute teacher for the day, they call this agency who calls you. Problem is that thats what everyone else who graduated with an Education degree is doing (where I live there are at least four different colleges that have Education programs, so thats a lot of people), so I dont have an interview with the agency until the end of January. It looks like I'll be going back to retail for awhile until I can find something in the schools...

YOu could give private classes to help kids do their homework. Its a very popular activity over here for students and its decently paid.

Thats true, that is another option I have. I could do some tutoring-esque stuff, or theres also night school or adult education classes. I have a few options.

I make my cash acting as a tutor; inner cit kids need them especially, it seems. Hardest part is just not getting frustrated with 'em, because sometimes they refuse to try to understand after a certain point; they just listen to what you're saying and copy it down.

I once had to explain to 11th year student (ie 16-17 years of age) what a Galaxy was. I could hardly believe people wouldn't know that.
