Teaching in a language center is an alternative for those who do not have a teaching certificate from their home country. Business English classes for adults are in high demand and there many language centers hiring English teachers. Requirements for employment vary from center to center, but tend to be less stringent than in elementary and secondary schools. Teachers with a reputable TEFL certificate, and can demonstrate cultural sensitivity and ESL teaching techniques may find a language center to be a great fit.
Many teachers find that private tutoring is another good source for supplementing their income. Teachers who can find their own students, arrange the lessons, and providing course material can find this to be a very lucrative side business since students typically pay between KD10-15/hour (US $30-$50).
Teachers can potentially save US$1,000+ each month if they do not eat out or go shopping frequently. Transportation and food are both reasonably priced and housing is usually included in most teaching packages.
