Yes I am a full time private tutor (see my other thread for details) and it is nice to be your own boss!

Regarding the OP, I think it is important to remember that the potential job is not forever (usually), it is just a milestone, a point from which to move onwards and upwards from. Do your research, suggest a salary point which is reasonable for the work / hours required and which you are OK with. If for whatever reason you become dissatisfied with the job later on, take the work experience gained and move on.

A lot of EFL teachers still see Kong Kong as a cash cow in Asia ...but when reality strikes them they usually become disappointed very quickly and head for more lucrative destinations such as Taiwan and Korea. Hong Kong has always been an expensive teaching destination...and as EFL salaries drop and cost of living expenses increase things will only get worse before they get better. Shocked

If you look at the Taiwan page here you'll see there seems to be a fairly strong consensus that it's far from being a lucrative destination for EFL teachers. I have never worked there, but from the comments it seems that Taiwan is only a good option if you're a licensed teacher.
