    Depends on whether you mean 'natives who are teachers' or 'teachers who teach one to be a native'...

    Go into the jungle and beat some bonga drums. They start crawling out of the woodwork...

    :P

    Thanks, but I'm not looking for a private teacher, I'm looking for an employee

    Add the salary...

    If you don't add the salary in your ad don't expect to get many replies. And of course if you add a low salary expect no replies.

    I find it strange that someone can place a genuine enquiry on the forum,that his query is met with ridicule and flippancy.Even our resident ultra conservative rusmeister takes time off studying his Chesterton to have a snipe......What about helping the OP out,instead of infantile comments ?
    And "thanking " for said puerile comments...

    Not teaching any more, but when I first started looking for jobs (and was based in the UK) I used tefl.com and eslcafe.com as a starting point.

    If you're looking for people already here in Russia, I'd suggest posting ads here and at redtape.ru might be a good start - but do include some idea of what salary you can offer and what visa support is available. Packages including decent accommodation are worth promoting, especially if you're dealing with people who are (relatively) new to Moscow / Russia. You'll also need a couple more posts on expat before you can put up a classified ad, I think. That shouldn't be hard. A quick reply here, and a flippant joke on some random argument in the main forum - you'll be good to go!

    You might also consider the English-language media in the city: Moscow Times runs classifieds (usually for escorts, but I don't think they'd refuse a job ad), Element does as well. Beyond that, word of mouth. Do your current teachers have any leads? Can they put the word around? Most of the jobs I've found in Moscow have been through friends of friends - use your network of existing staff.

    One caveat, which you probably understand well enough already: there is a big difference between a native speaker, and a teacher. Although I did my CELTA before I started in TEFL, I'd be generous if I described myself as a teacher. I understand the prestige associated with native speakers, but for many students a trained educational expert might be more use than someone who speaks the language well but can't really explain _why_ it works.

    Good luck!

    I'm also interested what salary native teachers expect to be paid! I guess, it is more than Russian English Teachers (however they are paid 40000-60000rub in our language center)

    Wow! I'm so thankful for your pieces of advice- I hope it will help me!!! I'll try the ways you've written here - for sure! By the way - I'm looking for a Native Speaker with Degree, or sertificates that prove that her can teach! Can you please tell me, What salary do Native Teachers expect to be paid here in Moscow!

    I've come to this thread rather late, as I haven't browsed the forum for several months, and I don't have any useful information to add to that already contributed by andymackem, but I can say that the salary Smart Line pays in the Language Centre would be regarded as very generous in provincial Russia. However, much depends on whether the salary is intended to cover the cost of accommodation. In that case, it might still be adequate down here in the boondocks, but probably not in Moscow.

    Bring'em over

    I've also had bad success in recent finding teachers.. I'm starting to think the best way is to bring them over, down, up or whatever and set them up..
    Many teachers stay at a job only 1 year as they find somewhere else to make more. Many on this site are already set up or busy so not much chance of finding them on here anymore. Also davesefl or esl is good to but I haven't tried it for looking for teachers yet.

    The crisis is still strong...

    I think more people are more willing to try things with the crisis being so Strong in many English countries...
