Sorry to butt in here, but I just want to find out if the people giving/asking for advice are legally eligible to teach privates. It could be so easy for the government to bust you at this. I doubt very much that they would, but they could. Please be careful. I fear, once again, that a person in a position of responsibility is offering poor advice without thinking of all the potential pitfalls. It is illegal to teach privates if you are here on an ARC. Please, moderators and Admin of F.com, think before you post such advice. It only takes 1 Peter Chen-type personality to start working at the FAP or CLA and someone’s entire house of cards will come tumbling down. I only caution you as I have had 2 good friends deported recently and, believe you me, the crunch is on and it’s only going to get worse. Imagine if you were charged with weeding Taiwan of illegal privateers. Now imagine that you knew about f.com. It would be so easy to turn this site into lead central. An industrious cop could earn alot feathers setting up forumosans who believe that teaching privates is as serious a crime as spitting. It is a deportable offence, and while I love the new bed I bought for a song off my deported pal, I miss him even more. And I know he is not happy about having to fire-sale 4 years of possesions.
To the OP’s question, I have often thought about this myself and once I can legally teach privates, I believe I would indeed convert part of my apartment into a studio/classroom. I would probably set my sights on generating enough clients to warrant renting an additional apartment and furnish it exclusively for teaching. But until I am legally entitled to do so, I will not teach privates.
