Making some extra money

Many people who teach English as a foreign language in a school, also do private English onrepparttar side and this can become a lucrative activity in itself. Working in a language school for a few months is a good way to meet students and advertiserepparttar 145392 fact that you do private English lessons, on a one-to-one basis. It can be difficult to getrepparttar 145393 first few, but then through word of mouth, you’ll get more if you do a good job – that great social network of mums and dads onrepparttar 145394 school run can work wonders! The University of Cambridge ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) exam system seems to berepparttar 145395 most widely known and respected in Greece, many people who want to be taught privately are preparing to sit a Cambridge exam or some other type of test. It is therefore worth familiarising yourself withrepparttar 145396 system – there is an enormous amount of free information onrepparttar 145397 Internet, including lesson plans, tips, exam practice etc. The exams which are most commonly sat by students arerepparttar 145398 "First Certificate in English" (which many people still refer to by its old name: "Lower"), "Certificate of Proficiency in English" (known as “Proficiency”), and “Certificate in Advanced English” (commonly referred to as “Advanced”). More information is available fromrepparttar 145399 Cambridge ESOL web site (www.cambridgeesol.org).

What private students will want from you varies a great deal. Some may just want a conversation class, others may just be starting onrepparttar 145400 Cambridge examinations path and there will be some who are already at a very high level and may need detailed coaching on specific grammar points or on vocabulary for a particular purpose e.g. business English. And given these differences,repparttar 145401 amount of preparation required on your part andrepparttar 145402 fee per hour you are able to charge will probably vary too. I will finish with a word on advertising. My experience has been that I have paid out money for two newspaper ads, which got back zero replies! What has worked well for me is local advertising - you need to use your imagination. I put a card in local shops and a small notice inrepparttar 145403 back window of my car and you can see people reading it at every traffic light! Just beware of getting calls on your mobile phone while you're driving - not good! As I said before, word of mouth should kick in too once you have your first couple of lessons.
