    Becoming a private tutor in Russia

    I often hear from experienced English teachers that the best way to make money is to go find private students. Schools don't pay much and often demand tough hours. I've calculated that if I only had private students I'd make twice as much for half the work than working for a school.

    Does anyone have any advice that they can share on cutting out the school and going solo? Is it sustainable? What about summer? What happens with taxes?

    There's an organisation bringing students and tutors together, Profi.ru http://profi.ru/registration/repetitor/. Native speakers (I mean really native, not the ones from Nigeria) are in high demand there.

    Sorry, can't say anything about taxes etc.

    Does anyone have info on taxes? Is it just something that tutors here, both foreign and Russian, just largely ignore?

    Most people do private tutoring as a side work. Do one need a separate work permit to become a private tutor?

    The word Native speaker is loosely used most times.
    Who is a native speaker when it comes to the English language?
    If your answer is e.g. UK, US, Canada, Australia then you are wrong.
    They r default countries when it comes to the language.
    Research before you type such "Native speakers (I mean really native, not the ones from Nigeria)"

    I agree! I think that Indians probably speak and pronounce native English the best

    You could give advice without disrespecting the Nigerian teachers. I have met many good Nigerian teachers myself.
