Teaching locally

Unread postby Jellybaby » 19 Jul 2011, 17:12

Hi all,

I've just completed a weekened TEFL course and I'm thinking of offering my services to non-English-speaking people in my area (I'm planning to go abroad in a year or so). Basically, I have two questions:

1) Where might be good places to advertise?

2) What would be a good rate to charge?

Any advice would be most welcome.

West Midlands (near Coventry). I was thinking of charging about £5-10 per hour

Before going abroad get a good experience in your profession. For local area teaching try to get information from local newspaper. All the best.

Actually, in TEFL it is the exact opposite and you generally need experience abroad before you can get work back home. Another alternative might be online teaching. I think you'll be lucky to get anything back home with no experience and just a weekend cert, but worth a try I guess.
