I guess I am a newbie, so the proper protocol is to say hello. I see a lot of familiar names here from ajarn. I haven't been active there for years, and I didn't even know it had closed down to be honest. I found this place searching for information about teaching in resorts in Phuket.

If you have never read anything I posted, I guess I should dispense a little information about myself. I have been teaching in Thailand for about 10 years. Prior to that I did a year stint in South Korea. A series of catastrophic events in my life led me to chase some cash in China where I found Beijing to be the most horrific place I have ever had the misfortune of visiting in my entire life. That is saying a lot because I have been to a truckload of destinations. After 6 months there, I threw in the towel and returned to Thailand.

Having had four waivers already, I didn't fancy trusting our friends at Krusapa to issue me another waiver. Although, I am fairly confident I could have gotten one. I remembered a time when Thailand meant palm trees and beaches to me so many years ago. After the pollution of Beijing, I decided 9 years in Bangkok was enough for me. I set my sites on Phuket.

Here I am flat broke with my wife and kid in a small apartment in Phuket Town. It's all good, I hope! I have been doing some e-book writing and other remote work. I have some privates due to start tomorrow which should pay my rent which is due on Sunday!

I do have a job at a 5 star resort here, but they aren't playing around and want the work permit issued before starting the job. My WP3 should be ready next week! Fingers crossed.

Anyway, I am happy to be here. Thanks for providing a place to share information in a positive and friendly way!

Hello losing_touch,

welcome 3 to ThailandTeaching.info

Thank you for joining and sharing your story with us!

How about trying online teaching?

https://www.dadaabc.com/teacher/jobsummary/

A friend of mine - having been in a similar situation to yours - tried it and now absolutely loves it. He earns 650฿ per hour, and works about 2-3 hours per day. So altogether it's quite a decent money.

The things you need are a good internet connection, a laptop (with webcam), a headset with microphone, and a room/wall serving as your background during the video chat tutoring sessions.

I wanted to try it, too, but I got refused as I am not from a native English speaking country.

Regards,
Kruhjoe

Hello losing_touch,

Welcome back,


I do recall seeing you post a long time ago, but I recall the posting had more to do with things happening in Isaan.

I don't know. I only have the wifi provided by the room I am staying in at the moment. I interviewed with one company a couple of years ago, and they were awful. It turned me off from trying again. Maybe I will give it a shot again.
