Private lessons: where do you fit in? (anonymous voting)

I teach privates legitimately (F-class or with employers permission)
11 (7%)
I teach privates… um, not-so-legitimately (E-class visa or without permission)
17 (11%)
I make more money teaching privates than at my ‘regular’ job
9 (6%)
I make almost as much teaching privates
10 (6%)
I’m teaching privates and enjoying the extra cash
14 (9%)
I taught private lessons in the past, but not anymore
33 (22%)
I haven’t taught privates yet – but I’d like to
36 (24%)
I’ve never taught a private lesson while in Korea, and don’t plan to
44 (29%)

The results aren’t exactly surprising – even on an anonymous survey the numbers seem a bit ‘proper’, as if some people are giving the proper answer instead of the actual answer… In any case, about 11% admit to teaching ‘illegal’ lessons, while the second largest number indicates an interest in teaching privates – interesting.

Next question for April 2010: How many hours a week do you actually teach? (Don’t include prep, meetings, etc.)

Not a scientific poll, based solely on responders interested in responding to an anonymous poll, open from 1 March 2010 to 31 March 2010, yadda yadda yadda.
