Are you starting up a "training school" or are you yourself interested in private English lessons? Or are you perhaps organizing this for friends/family?
And any offer i2, EF, or Mettin make to their teachers will be lower per hour than what a teacher should expect to make teaching students privately. For the teacher we're offered no financial stability, typically have to travel more, are required to come up with ALL teaching material, and are able to customize a lesson to the students needs. This is why one would make more teaching students privately. When a teacher works with a training school the school is taking on the responsibilities and worries that the teacher would normally face.
Buuuuuuut to answer your question...if you're signed on as a "full-time" teacher at one of these establishments, you earn about 100rmb-130rmb/hr (when broken down). If you work for an hourly wage it is usually between 150/hr and 180/hr (150 being the minimum offered and 180 being the average lately).
But the training schools themselves charge 300-600rmb/hr, which is why if the teacher is going to take on the extra risk and responsibilities, normally not associated with teaching in training schools, they typically expect to make at least 250/hr. Depending on age, skill level, and what the student is looking to get from each lesson (as well as the teachers qualifications). I would say anywhere from 200-400/hr for private 1 on 1 lessons.
Hey there... so what is the fastest (and also somewhat cost effective) way to travel from the Shenzhen Airport to the visa office in Wanchai, HongKong?
-I know about the MTR to the border, cross, then MTR again...but that could take up to 3 hours with all the stops and such.
-busses as well seem to take too long...
-I've heard about a ferry from a port nearby the Shenzhen airport, but I'm unaware of the timing, costs, arrival location, and travel duration. (maybe someone has some info there?)
Anything else I'm missing or haven't considered? It's been almost a year since I've been back there and things tend to have changed by now. (Plus last time I wasn't in any sort of rush so I took my time with the MTR)
`Thanks in advance!
Thanks man. They interview even for tourist visas? And what all would I need...I remember when I first came out here on one I didn't have anything really and it worked out easily enough.
I'm doing this to get back into the country and sort out my work visa (but I know not to tell them that)...
Recently I've been hearing that the "rush option" on tourist visas (and visas in general) in Hong Kong has changed from next day pick up to two day pick up.
Does anyone know if this is true or is it still possible to file for the visa, rush service, on Monday afternoon and pick it up on Tuesday afternoon?
Any help with this would be realllly appreciated. Need to be outa the country by the 28th (and can't transfer my current visa..sooo need to go pick something else up temporarily), and I'm trying to not stay in Hong Kong for a minute longer than need be. :)
Hey there...I'm looking to enroll in a Chinese language course and obtain a student visa. My Chinese level is very limited, and I don't really care where,or who, I learn from.
I would prefer attendance to be optional, (or no more than once per week) because I work a bit in the evenings and am busy most other days. If this isn't possible, OK, that's fine...just throwing it out there.
My current "Z"visa expires on September 30th...this is a very last minute thing for me. Everything else for me has fallen through and I'm not sure where to begin looking. Do I walk around to each and every university in Chengdu to discuss this in person? Is there a website I can check out? Or is my best bet going to be word of mouth??
Any information you could provide me would be much appreciated.
Thank you thank you,
