Just wondering how you got on with finding tudents? I have just set up a website to market myself as an online teacher and would be grateful for any tips you have on finding students. I've spent the last 3 weeks doing nothing but work on trying to get my website seen. I've learnt more about computing than I did in the last 20 years! And yet I haven't had any interest in lessons yet.
It's really quite frustrating as I've got a lot of teaching experience and I'm qualified to MSc level in Linguistics. But on the online tutor directories/marketplaces teachers are selling lessons for as little as $3 (US)! I live in the UK and really need to charge a lot to be able to make a living. Lots of online teachers make comments such as "don't be afraid to charge high prices, students will pay if they are looking for good qality lessons". But I've yet to see the evidence of this! Where are these students looking for high quality lessons and how do I make myself known to them?!
