Tutoring in Taipei

Postby RFT » 23 Apr 2016, 09:13

Hi,

I'm hoping for advice on the best avenues for finding private clients in Taipei. I'm used to using Craigslist, Google Groups, or Facebook in other parts of Asia, but they don't seem to be used quite as much here. TeaLit seems oversaturated, and word of mouth/recommendations will come with more time.

Is 104 worth figuring out? Any advice on other alternatives?

Cheers,
T

What's your target market? Kids? Adults? Any specific profession or special type of English?

Apologies, I just realised how unclear my post was. My specialty is test prep (SSAT/SAT/TOEFL/IELTS), but I also have a lot of experience working with adults whether it be Business English or general communication skills. I prefer to work in those capacities, but I'm also open to working with younger learners and have worked with a variety of levels on core skills, and also more specifically with advanced kids on creative writing and reading comprehension.

In case you haven't seen it or otherwise found out, the thread "Legality of private tutoring" (or something like that) examines the problem of this line of work usually being illegal for foreigners in Taiwan.
