It is possible to set up a business to offer private English teaching lessons. I like to refer to it as tutoring services. Do you mean private 1 on 1 teaching lessons? You will be amazed at the amount of people that need extra help and they seek private English teaching lessons where the teacher can focus on them and not others in the class. The students get more out of the lesson that way because they can ask more questions and get more of the answers they are looking for. Sure it is!

Im sure setting up a business is alotof BS, but if you are doing it as others suggest here, just advertise and pickup students, I assume that you are then working on a tourist visa. Not a great idea. I can understand the thought to setup alone, as i have encouraged a friend here to do, but he is quite right to tick with his english school company, as they have alot off pull to sort his visa. Then he doesnt have to worry about deportation and chopping visa every month...

Personally I think it would be ok to do a little on a tourist visa to setup a student base but then once you have a suitable enough amount of students to think it is worthwhile venture, setup things officially.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
