philip J If your only qualification in teaching English is that your native language is English, then in my humble opinion, you have a POOR chance of getting any kind of private teaching/tutoring job. For example, you would be in competition with me. I hold a Master's in Teaching English as a Foreign Language, I hold multiple TESOL specialty certificates and have 15 years experience in teaching Enlish as a Foreign language. Good luck.

I'm looking for data about: If I live in or near Manizales,what is the market like for teaching English in private lessons? I wondered if I want to do that, is it hard to find work in that field in Mani? Any info. would be helpful.I also would like to know what the possibility is for teaching english in other areas within the cordillera area of Colombia.I wouldn't like to go to any of the hot areas of colombia (places like Cartagena or Other coastal cities). I like the mountains.
