I am looking at Baoding as a place to work/live for various reasons. Mostly due to its location. Is anyone working there or have first-hand knowledge of the city? Specifically, is there demand for private tutoring such as IELTS or TOEFL? What do private schools pay for side work? I am in a small and backwards dump now, and there is simply not enough work outside my uni job to make decent money.

Thanks.

Actually, no.

How can 11 million people be small and backwards?

Shijiazhuang is the best city in the Province, and its a nice city but the pollution just puts it in the "dump" category.

Its like an hour or so by train to Shijiazhuang.

Baoding would be ok because it is 1/2 way to both Beijing and Shijiazhuang.

After 6 years in Shijiazhuang. I could not sleep safely at night. the pollution would try to kill me in my sleep.


For past 4 years I am down in Changsha. The air is fresher than up there. I am leaving in 60 days boys and girls.
