So I’ve been wondering why?
My tutoring rate is over 1k/hr, but most language schools would only offer me around 600-800/hr. I mean, it’s not like they couldn’t afford a 1k/hr teacher. Even the most esteemed American styled language schools would only pay for 40-50k for full time Taiwanese teachers. I had better offer as a newbie when I was working in the electronic industry. I thought teaching English is a skill that worths something.
The funny thing is, buxibans (升學補習班） might be able to offer a better package. But those are not my first choice though. I simply don’t believe in that system. I’ve seen too many students with flying colors yet couldn’t even mutter out a simple sentence.
What do you think? How much do you get paid now? And I know this one is a bit unPC, but it’d be nice if you could tell me what ethnic group you belong to. Since I’ve got people saying to my face that I would never get paid more than a Caucasian teacher, regardless of my teaching skills and experience…
