Teaching English in Poland: How to Find Private Students
If you’re coming to teach English in Poland, private tutoring can be an excellent way to supplement your income. Here we’ll cover the who, what, where and whys of private tutoring in Poland.
Why should I do private tutoring?
Posting online is the fastest way to connect to prospective students looking for tutoring services
Where can I find students?
How does it work?
If you are using e-korepetycje.net to find students, it really is just a case of posting a killer ad, and waiting for students to reach out! Be patient, and don’t be disheartened if your inbox doesn’t fill up overnight.
The great thing about such a website is that all of the finer details are really down to you – availability, location (online or in-person) and other preferences can all be stated on your profile, so students contacting you should already know the drill 🙂
Always remember to bring value, patience and kindness to your tutoring sessions
Anything else I should know?
While any private tutor will tell you that building great relationships with students and seeing them flourish is the best part of the job, it is important to remember just that – it is a job.
Keep expectations super clear from the offset, particularly when it comes to things such as cancellation and payment policies. Think about how much time you could be spending planning classes for students to cancel at the last minute, and decide on how you will handle that situation.
Equally important is for you to also treat it seriously. While tutoring is often seen as the more ‘as and when convenient’ way to teach English, your students are paying customers, and an air of responsibility and commitment from your end will most definitely end in glowing reviews and recommendations!
