Earning proper money in TESOL?

Unread post by Someguy » 21 Mar 2017, 17:13

Hi all,

I have six years' TESOL teaching experience (including three in a supervisory position) and will shortly finish my Masters in Applied Linguistics. I love the field, but I need to find some kind of work that pays a little better than what I've been doing - realistically, I'm not getting any younger and retiring in my country (Australia) is insanely expensive. Does anyone have any ideas?

N.B. I don't mean "which countries pay teachers slightly better" - has anyone worked in materials preparation, management, anything like that which pays reasonably decently? (i.e. much better than typical teaching jobs, $100K kind of thing)

Take a look at the international pay charts here http://www.chinaforeignteachersunion.org. The blue and white chart should answer your questions. Good luck
