Where can I find potential English learners?

27 Jan 2009 /  #1
I am interested in teaching English privately in Warsaw and I would like to know if anyone has advice on how to find students. I would prefer to teach adults during daytime hours. Your help is appreciated!

You can make an advertisments at schools, colleges etc. But I woudln't count on anyone who wants lessons ealier than late afternoon.

Do know I did this once in my desperate for work days, and spent a lot of time designing a small poster with tear off strips on the bottom with my name and phone number on.

And so off I trotted around students town putting these up and I must have spent four hours walking around there putting them up.
Rather proudly I sat down in the park surveying my work and thinking about all the money I would make out of this.
Suddenly I saw a rather large guy walking around tearing down all my work, I ran over to him and asked what the hell does he think he is doing, and he answered me in a thick Irish accent, 'feck off, this is my patch'.

Teachers can be such bitches sometimes lol

Hehehe, competition is fierce these days. Student digs are a good bet. You can stick a notice up with your GG or Skype no, amongst other things.

I'd try local newspapers ads and ads in the internet, local and national advertisement websites. Maybe some ads in collages and universities area?

I suggest you put up a post on gumtree in Warsaw in the following section offering your services: I just came across this ad in the above section, which I thought was pretty funny

Have you been learning English with someone who either smells bad, is stoned, hung over or drinking alcohol during the lessons?
I've heard all the stories. If you're looking for someone to help you prepare for classes, tests, in a unique and comfortable environment. Don't hesitate, just give me a call and I'll do my best to provide you with a comfortable and enjoyable one on one learning experience
