Private Lessons to Company Employees in Vietnam

by Walter Parris

What are the prospects of teaching business people / adults English or business English?

Are there programs that focus on that demographic? Do they pay better than schools for children?

Where can one find these types of programs?

Hello, Walter. I didn't reply right away cause I lost you. My wrong and I apologize.

All private schools run business programs to adults. Stay out of the Public system if you can because you'll probably get saddled with a room full of disinterested kids.

You're asking about private lessons, though. You are asking about the cream of the crop jobs that everyone wants.

I worked for a private computer firm that had me teach its employees 3 hours of English everyday. 2 classes at 1.5hrs a class.

3-4 adult students that wanted to talk business in English. Nice job.

The secret is to stay away from both public and private schools and hit up the companies themselves.

I landed my first private business English teaching job at the HTP industrial Park in Vietnam.

My advice is to prepare a good CV with a color photo. Dress like Donald Trump and take a taxi to the HTP industrial Park in Ho Chi Minh city.

There are nearly 40 different firms all in one place. They have a guard at the front gate but just walk by and don't let him see your CVs

You could find a good job as long as you can sell yourself. I can't help you with that, though.

I can't give specific company names to you because I don't know anything about you. Nothing was included in your question to help me determine what you could qualify for.

The more details you give me the more precise an answer I could give you. I don't even know if you have any experience or a Degree.

Just hit the industrial parks and focus on each company by dropping off a resume at their company headquaters.

It really is a gold mine of opportunity up there. 40 companies with their head offices all within walking distance?

Good luck my friend,
