With an MA and 6 years experience teaching your home country I would think you'd look into a position at an international school. Look for lists of International schools and visit their web sites. They often have a list of current teachers which includes their qualifications. I've noticed that they either have a B.Ed. or a masters. Rarely have a I seen a one month crash course such as CELTA, TEFL or equivalent. Those are usually for newbies not experienced teachers. You could consider it PD I suppose but surely there are better choices for PD than a crash course for novices.

An MA in an unrelated subject is not much help if planning to teach English as a foreign language. Six years' teaching experience in a non-related field, while helpful, is not going to separate any applications much either. Two years of teaching in China will not bolster a CV either, depending on where one applies for EFL work later.


Therefore, unless planning to teach a different subject in an international school, I think getting a Celta in the future is not a bad idea at all and does not appear to be beneath the OP. It will also serve as a solid foundation for further PD, such as a Delta or MA in EFL. Certainly in Russia it will be of great benefit.

So, best of luck to you in your endeavours, Morientes !

What did you teach in the US?
My guess would be high school history, but that could be wrong.
You could easily get a job at a private K-12 school in Latin America, teaching either history in English or English. Some are English medium and pay well, some are bilingual, and some just have English as a daily subject, and pay in those varies from good to terrible and everything in between.
