Fall in Korea is turning into Winter in Korea. It is becoming colder, and colder and I would venture to say…this frigid air is just not going to do my skin so well. My lamenting doesn’t help you…therefore let us just cut to it eh? Did you enjoy the video? In a week I’ll be in Seoul, for the first time. A place I’ve wanted to go to since I was 5 years old. Finally!
Many of you know my previous job was as a Governess (see job #15). While a governess I learned the ins and outs of Homeschooling. Each school district seems to have a host of websites and group names for all the home school organizations, with long-standing history, in the area. Although most of these parents lead their home school classes, some do seek out alternatives to instructing their children. Often time they may hire a history teacher to come in once a week for a few hours to assign projects and whatnot. A math teacher may come in as well. Heck, any subject area teacher, including art and foreign languages!
Contact the local organizations and let them know you are a teacher who provides excellent services (and please do!!). Tell them about your services and fees. Know that it is very possible several parents will likely get together to help you teach their children.
Now, on another note, you can also “sell” your services on www.meetup.com. What I mean by this is that there are tons of groups of people who get together weekly, monthly and whatnot and they look for people to teach them something about wine, or cheese or art or cooking. You could completely feel free to email the group leader and offer to give a talk about the ins-and-outs of a particular field you are well versed in!!! You’re not afraid of groups…or talking. After all, you’ve been teaching children all of your life!!
As always, all the best to you J
