I believe my girlfriend is being grossly underpaid. I’m trying to find appropriate salary ranges for her field but it’s hard finding info in English.
How much is a masters degree from an American university (a state school) with 2 years experience in the teaching field be worth?
What do salaries for admissions counselors that help taiwanese schools get into American universities look like? Anyone know anyone who works this type of job and can help paint an estimate for salary range?
To the best of my knowledge, this subject is mostly taught in buxiban like establishments. Salaries for full time workers range 50K to 60K, depending if they are good teachers that get a lot of students.
GRE private tutors charge 1000 an hour, more if they can also teach the math part.

Get her to make business cards and drop them off at local school staff rooms. My wife started doing that 20 years ago and now has a steady word of mouth business going with the teacher mafia. She makes a lot more than 435/hr and only teaches up to the GEPT levels. Your wife would likely get some bites with her qualifications.
If you’re talking about the agent type jobs who help foreign students get into to us/uk universities, then according to my wife the salaries are about 35k/mo and typically there is some additional commission element, but she’s not sure how much that is.
Qualifications dont really increase starting salaries for locals. Yearly raises over the course of decades is what does increase pay for local salaried positions. That and becoming a manager or supervisor.
35K to 45K is about the average starting pay for most locals in most professions here outside the tech / engineering industry.
