Dirk, I actually work 9 months and get paid for 12. Isn`t it a nice arrangement?
Not when the average teachers' salary is less than a guy who digs coal. It's only a nice arrangement if you're willing to waste 9 months making crap money to get 3 off. It's like spending an hour taking a survey to get $10. It's only a good deal if your time isn't worth more than $10 an hour.
How long is your holiday in those businesses you slave for?????
Unlimited. I work when I want. If I decided not to work for a while I have that freedom. If I want to work I travel to my clients whenever I want and get nice hotels, food, liquor, etc. comped. I can be sitting on the beach enjoying a corona or sitting in my pajamas rolling blunts closing deals on the phone.
17 zl an hour whereas most teachers can get at least 60zl through a school and perhaps 80zl or 100zl privately
Highly overestimated. Stats and numerous sources show otherwise. Private tutors advertise at 50-80 z's, 80-100+ if you're providing a unique speciality like business english, legal english, etc. And that's only in the largest cities like Warsaw, Wroclaw, etc.
6000zl before tax
Just look at the amount of threads on here from people complaining about going into teaching English and then they're shocked that they'll only make about a grand a month rofl
Good private teachers earn a lot. My uni friend is a private English teacher.
Yes if you're running a business and teaching groups business english, legal english, etc. then you can make great money by Polish standards. Also, you're not dealing with brainwashing pre-teens and teens like our fellow PF LBHs here. You're actually a professional - more of a consultant than teacher. You work a few hours a night when people are off work, offer private tutoring, etc. not working in some grade school or high school.
