250-300/hour if you look Asian. Good luck with that. :wink:
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

I'm much more of a nasty rotter in real life, especially with vapid or vacuous verbiage from the ill read & intellectually challenged. - TheGingerMan

Every said I wouldn't find a teaching job because I'm Asian, they wouldn't pay me the same, I made the same and even more than "foreigners" while teaching part time and working on independent projects. Sometimes I hate this forum, people telling me what I can't do and all pessimistic. Passive aggressiveness and sarcasm is the norm. I've gotten maybe 1-2 helpful advice so far.

Iirc the figures cited in previous threads range from 550 to 800, i.e. not that different from teaching older kids or adults.
