I just saw this post out there
… and ok, a couple of points are pretty silly – but they do underscore how there’s a lot of Italian in the language a lot of English speakers speak.
So I thought, what with my current need for work and all that… what about offering my services as a language teacher, via Skype?
a – I had a few years of experience as a teacher of Italian to English speakers
b – I already provide one-on-one English language lessons through Skype to my Italian students
Using Skype so far helped with the fact that I live in the sticks, and the closest student is ten miles away – Skype saves time and money, and it’s extremely flexible in terms of lesson scheduling.
Granted, my slow connection only allows me voice but no video, and yet, so far it worked just fine.
Working with English speakers might force me to make some weird hours, but I suffer from insomnia anyway. And on the plus side, it’s no end of fun.
Now I’ve just to set myself up as an online teacher of Italian.
Conversation and quick-fixes a specialty.
Any idea of how I should proceed to spread the news?
Where to advertise and so on?
Suggestions based on experience?
