I was recently asked if I was interested in being a conversation tutor for a young 7-8 yr old child. The child already attends a private English school so they told me they can’t pay too much. They said the most they could pay is 700NT per session, which they want to be for an hour and a half. I would have to go to their house, which is not too far, but still an MRT trip. It seems they are just interested in having the child get speaking practice with a native speaker, so I don’t know how much that type of tutoring usually costs around Taipei. However, I do also have a M.Ed. degree in TESL… so I am feeling kind of strange because the task is not necessarily using all of my training, but yet I do have this education background. Well, basically, I’m just wondering if I should be asking for more, or if I should pass on this one and find more specific tutoring assignments. Anyone have opinions about this?
