    Yes, willingly. Only write me and tell me what you especially need.While teaching I am allowed to make experiments and find out new methods of teaching.

    Hello, Harry Smith!

    So teaching is just a hobby for you?
    I'm glad that you enjoy teaching so much!
    I'm also a teacher. I teach English as a foreign language but, unfortunately my students (and students in general in my country- Portugal) aren't very motivated to learn this lovely language!! As a matter of fact almost every child and teenager doen't like school at all!!! And this is the real problem! The Portuguese educational problem is facing some problems... However I like teaching...
    I'd like to know how your educational system works there in Armenia.

    Greetings from Portugal!

    The educational system of Armenia is in the process of reformation. Every year something is changed. There are a lot of problems at schools like everywhere. Children do not like learning at school because most lessons are boring even their favourite Physical Education. As to English I'm trying to do everything possible to make it more and more interesting. I see that children love my subject and I'm teaching them with greatest pleasure. The process of teaching depends completely on the teachers though the government often forgets to pay them like in some countries of Europe. But if you are really a good teacher you mustn't pay attention to such subjective factors.

    Hi, Tdol!

    Well as I said the Portuguese educational system is facing several problems, speacially because of the continuous process of reformation that every year happens! Things are alawys changing... we, teachers don't have any kind of stability as we are constantly changing from school to school every school year... The students are more and more rude and violent (and their parents don't seem to know this! and don't care!) so they are unwilling of learning... . It is a structural problem... Schools don't have the appropriate conditions...

    What about teachers in the UK? For what I know about there is some need of teachers...

    I haven't lived in the UK for a while, but the system has some similar problems to those. In some areas, there are shortages of teachers, especially in London because property prices are so high that teachers simply can't afford to live there.

    The prices in Moscow are also high but working here as a teacher of English I get about $70 salary a month. And I don't complain because it won't change anything. I simply give private lessons. But Ihave been following this rule for many years: I never give private lessons to those whom I teach at school.

    Not only ignored but also many of them create a background for their students to take private lessons from them giving them lower marks.

    Poaching is one thing, but that is just plain corrupt.
