What do ESL teachers in Russia do for work during the summer? Private lessons? Are any language schools open in the summer?

Schools remain open, but it is dacha season, so work is fairly light. Privates shrink too, but there's usually enough going on to cover bills etc. Plenty of m'colleagues head away home then too, so cover lessons can be good, if patchy. Teacher development, Delta, examiner training, off-site examining all fill in the blanks for different people.

A few language schools run summer schools, one of them as early as June.

As Sasha said, most teachers run away for the summer (which seems weird because summer is great in Moscow....HOT PANTS! WOOOO)

Due to teachers vanishing, I found that I easily had 35 hour weeks, so made a nice bit of cash. So even with students leaving for their dachas, the drop in teachers evened things out nicely (for me at least)

Have you tried: http://repetitors.info/

If you contact them directly and say you're a native speaker, they send you orders via email. I found some great private students that way - year round and in the summer.
