1st tier city, British, full-time school teacher. What do you think?

 

I don't work in English teaching.  I do MBA training part-time. 

 

@ChTTay

I think you mentioned you were was a teacher. Is that right? 

I asked friends of mine in Beijing (native speakers, qualified teachers). They suggested charging 400 to 500 for the group.

You are awesome. Thanks for your help. It seems we are set on just under 500.

I’m not an English teacher either. 

 

I’d say it depends who they are. If they live in a penthouse overlooking central Beijing then 1000. 

 

500 an hour would be what i’d day for 1on1. A group is probably easier than 1on1 so seems ok. If there are 6 kids I’d have been tempted to go for 600 for the hour. 

 

Chinese people would expect you to haggle anyway so you could go really high and see what they say.

Is this the same group that you mentioned reading stories too?

 

your colleagues child and friends?

 

 

This is a different class where I will be teaching children English from scratch. That’s enough private gigs for the time being.

 

I don’t suppose you would know of anywhere I can follow a free course online? I’m a little unsure of where exactly to start, logic tells me that the alphabet would be a good idea, but for the first lesson I will have limited access to materials outside of a laptop to show videos and some crayons to colour.

If it’s from scratch and you’ve not much previous experience it might be easier just to buy a coursebook. Amazon china has most common ones. I’m not sure of the age of the students but the first lesson could just be something like numbers 1-5, basic shapes and maybe colours.
