I didn't create this thread to talk about what I do. I just thought I might get some interesting answers.

Depends on who it is but I can get 15 or 30 an hour. Sometimes more if I get older people and not broke students. lol

It's a fairly easy job. All I do is talk with them so they can get practice with a native English speaker and I correct the obvious grammatical and pronunciation mistakes.

It's not really teaching as I'm a terrible teacher anyhow....

I don't know how I'd personally fare at that job.

It's been pointed out to me recently that I use a lotta unnecessary idioms and colloquialisms.

Good thing for that me they don't then. Besides there's a bit of difference between IRL and online even on video chat.

That's kinda cool. People piss me off too easily so I probably wouldn't manage it.

I too am an Indentured Servant but spate to the general state and have some choice to my education,

However, I start a training course for the RCPSYCH(Royal College of Psychiatrists/Royal Society of Psychiatrists), the highest psychological bodies in the UK, soon. Who when I pass the course give me a bonus when I apply to Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, which I sand a good chance of getting in to.

I extract semen from monkeys in an attempt to find a cure for gout.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

If I'd taken the last option then my carpets would have been in a far better condition... oh well you live and learn.
