Gauging demand for GMAT tutoring

I plan to apply for a few masters programs (ETHZ MS Stats, HSG MBF, and possibly IMD MBA) in Switzerland this fall, and have been stumped on how to generate enough cash flow for the very high cost of living. I would like to avoid loans and dipping too much into savings.

One idea was to try teaching GMAT prep part time (score is in the 99th percentile); I would be curious if people on this forum have any anecdotal evidence on whether this would work.

Is this test something many Swiss study for? If so, how are the rates?

Additionally, if there are other jobs students typically do, I would definitely be interested in hearing about them! My skillset is definitely skewed towards software development and quantitative disciplines, with randomly high scores for standardized tests (GRE, GMAT, SAT), but would also be happy doing manual labor such as waiting tables or software QA (only English unfortunately).
