Need some help in setting up an informal ESL class
April 28, 2014 11:46 AM Subscribe
I've been informally tutoring my friends' kids in preparing for the New York State English standardized tests, and my friends have been happy enough with how it's going that they have now proposed another arrangement. They would like me to teach a beginning ESL class for a small group of their business's employees who are struggling with English skills. I would teach a 2-hour class of about 4-5 people once a week. My friends don't know what the going rate for that kind of instruction is in NYC, and I don't either.

Does anyone have suggestions for what would be a fair price to charge, or where to find that information? I would also love suggestions for good adult beginner ESL textbooks - my experience with teaching ESL has always been with advanced learners, and I graduated my TESOL program over 5 years ago, so I'm not as current as I could be. Thanks in advance for any resources!
