Very good service.

The guys at teacher finder are in regular contact. The service is excellent. If you need a quality teacher fast they sort it out. If you need students to teach fast they also sort it out and all that for a fair referral fee.
They have a great amount of qualified teachers and seem to have enough requests so it is somewhat easy to find students through them if you teach.
I would definitely recommend them!

How can this program be improved?
I don't see much how. But if it could be done you can speak to the guys working there directly and tell them.

Great for finding quality students

I've been with Teacher Finder for over a year, and have had great students. They've been well matched to me in terms of time availability, interests, skills they want to learn, etc. The staff are easy to work with and the paperwork/payment is fast and simple. Basically, you fill out a profile form for Teacher Finder and they use that published profile to match you with interested students. It's a great way to find students and build your own mini-school after you're in a country.

How can this program be improved?
This program is great for teachers to find students once the teacher is in the country.

Love Teacher Finder

Teacher Finder is an efficient and reliable organisation that has found me excellent teaching opportunities over the years. As well as being professional they're also friendly and accessible.

Teacher Finder has helped me solve unexpected situations regarding my english lessons and has been approachable and helpful at all times.

Teacher Finder has developed and grown profoundly throughout the years and it has been an absolute pleasure to be a part of this process.

How can this program be improved?
Teacher Finder seems to be constantly looking for ways to improve and this is definitely felt by its pool of teachers.

Great Organization!

I am currently a student in Budapest and was looking for some extra income. I had been looking for students earlier, and Teacher Finder made the process easy! Teacher Finder has helped me receive a steady income and I always receive support when I need it while also given a lot of freedom. Teacher Finder connects those in your city who are looking for English lessons, and you take care of the rest.

TeacherFinder Works

I had been teaching English in Budapest as a private tutor for several years (to students found mostly via online tutor-advertising websites or word-of-mouth) when, about half a year ago, I happened upon the local branch of TeacherFinder, LearnEnglishBudapest, while browsing the Internet; and quickly signed up for it. I'm glad that I did so, because since then they have matched me up with lots of individual students, as well as English teacher-seeking language schools, thus augmenting my teaching income. The service is uncomplicated, easy, and effective to use, with clear-cut rules, and no intrusiveness at all on their part after the initial match-up. The fee they charge is reasonable and one-time only. Communications with them are friendly, open, and courteous; they usually answer questions or concerns promptly, as well as providing any advice needed. Overall, I think that TeacherFinder is a really simple and efficient, almost ideal, avenue for finding and connecting with English-language learners in your area, especially for one-on-one private tutoring.

How can this program be improved?
As for any aspects of this service that could be improved - well, for one thing, it would be better if TeacherFinder could recruit more students (and teachers) from the more outlying, peripheral, suburban and fringe areas of the city, instead of being concentrated mostly on the downtown/city center/main city area like it now is. That would reduce transportation time and costs involved in meeting with the students. In addition, it would probably be a good idea to spread increases in the advertised lesson prices out over a more extended period of time, since too-rapid rises in lesson prices might result in lower numbers of potential students willing to use this service (although TeacherFinder gives teachers wide leeway in negotiating instructional fees with individual pupils).

Teacher Finder a great working relationship.

I first heard of Teacher Finder through an Irish friend, who was already working through them in Budapest. I had been considering going back to teaching English, but wasn't sure whether I could be bothered with the hassle of building up a good student base. I thought I'd give them a try due to his recommendation and was very pleasantly surprised. The application process was straight forward and quick. They started dending me potential students within a week. I find Andrew and his team really supportive and efficient at their jobs and they generally match students well according to the answers they give in the questionnaires. If you ever have a problem with a student or a question regarding anything they are always there for you and make it really easy to work with them. I find the freedom they give you in choosing your own hours and the types of students you prefer to teach to be a great way of doing things. To be honest I can't really think of anything negative to say about them and would recommend them to anyone looking to teach languages.

TeacherFinder is a Lifestyle Changer

I was delighted to find that teaching English in Budapest is a viable and sustainable lifestyle.

Since I posted my profile on Teacherfinder, I've had multiple matches with great students. By now, I have weeded out those that aren't a great fit and kept those that work out well for me. What results is a good income and a lifestyle that suits me.

I am my own boss, I make my own hours, I choose who I work with.

I particularly enjoy that TF leaves it up to you to talk about pricing, timing, details - it makes for a very personalized experience with each student.

How can this program be improved?
If more teachers joined, TF could create more localized matches to avoid long travel times.

As it is you can already pass up any matches that include too much travel for your taste. Still, you feel bad leaving a student from an outer district without a good match and your conscience would rest easier if there was another teacher to jump in your place.

Best Way of Giving Private Lessons

I started working with Teacher Finder as a way of finding more private students in Madrid. The process of signing up with them was simple - I had to fill out an online form with my qualifications and experience, and after that all I had to do is wait. They make introductions to students via email and then simply get out of the way and let me teach the way I want to. It also gives me a lot of flexibility to set my own availabilities and hours.

You have a very clear understanding of what their conditions and terms are, and it makes working with them really easy and straightforward. Andrew and the team is helpful with making any changes and they get updates on what my openings are, so the process runs smoothly.

How can this program be improved?
To be honest, I think it works really well already. It's a simple and straightforward process that doesn't really need much messing with.

I was not quite sure that Teacher Finder was going to provide me some students, but from the very beginning they offered me classes and stayed in contact with to follow the process.
Also, the way the answer rapidly all the mails and communications make much easier the time you can prepare in advance your schedule and your lessons.
Simply, comfortable and effective, I would highly recommend Teacher Finder over others.

Excellent and professional team. Great Source for students and teachers connection

As an italian teacher I couldn't wish for a better company to work with. Since I signed up with Teacher Finder, they have been provided me many good students and I'm so happy to work with them on a regular basis because I like their enthusiasm and the willing to learn italian. Teacher Finder is a very good connection method. Conditions are clear and defined, the referral fee is reasonable and fair. I appreciate Andrew and his team because they are always available to help me for any queries and to answer to my need. They reply immediately and they really pay attention to my teaching needs preferences. I couldn't recommend them more highly for private teachers here in Milan. Teacher Finder are excellent to activate the connection between teachers and students and I really like to work with them. They are so serious and professional. This is so important to me because I think that teaching languages is a serious thing.
Thanks Teacher Finder!

Teacher Finder - that's the way to do it!

I have been working as a private teacher for many years, now. I teach Hungarian to foreigners in Budapest and all over through the internet and English to Hungarians. I have worked with several agencies out of which I found Teacher Finder outstanding.
Conditions are well defined, both lesson and referral fees are reasonable and fixed. Students are matched with their potential teachers in accordance with their (learning) needs and personal requirements. I appreciate their assessment process of student needs: it saves time for me and gives me an accurate picture of what my student would want to achieve by taking lessons with me. Andrew and his staff are devoted and committed to quality. They are nice, efficient, quick to respond and also pay attention to my preferences. The system is flexible, teachers have their professional freedom to design lessons and do their jobs.
On the other hand they listen to student feedback to guarantee effectiveness and customer satisfaction.
Finally, a personal note: I love working with the students I got to know through Teacher Finder. They are very nice, determined and fun people.

I could not wish for a better company to work with as a private teacher.

Good way to find new students

I signed up with Teacher Finder and they have provided me with new students on a regular basis. They charge a referral fee but it's definitely worth it since the service makes it much easier to get in touch with new students.

A big advantage is that the prices are set beforehand which eliminates the need to negotiate with each new student.

As for the staff, you'll mostly be dealing with Andrew who is very professional and always willing to help.

Professional, Organized, and Simple

I was teaching English privately in Budapest, mostly finding students through word-of-mouth. A friend of mine recommended Teacher Finder as a way to fill out my schedule. I'm so happy for this; Andrew and his team are fantastic, and their referral fee is very fair. They are quick to reply to emails, and really pay attention to my availabilities and teaching location preferences. It's so easy to fill out my schedule: if I have some teaching slots available, I simply contact them and inevitably they get filled in no time at all. I couldn't recommend them more highly for private English teachers here in Budapest.

Excellent support from Teacher Finder

I first contacted Teacher Finder at the beginning of the year when I was looking for further students to teach, in support of contract work from language Schools in Budapest. It was incredibly easy to get in touch with the support staff, who were considerate enough to ask when I was available, without suddenly loading me with too many students to handle. They also asked my preferences in terms of location within the city of Budapest, so that neither I, nor the students had to spend ridiculous amounts of time travelling.

As a relative newbie to teaching English, (and someone slightly prone to worrying!), they really were excellent at putting my mind at ease, and allowing me to focus on the students and teaching.

Teacher Finder were excellent at starting the connection between myself and the students, and I was fortunate enough to have consistent amounts of students organised through them. Their level of contact was also fantastic in ensuring that my changing schedule was always taken into account, while also allowing for extra work if I wanted it.

For me working with students privately is much more rewarding, and more flexible. You can use the materials you want, and be much more adaptive to the needs of the students. Support is always on hand if needed from Teacher Finder, from simple updates on schedules, to detailed information about the specific language requirements of students.

How can this program be improved?
No improvements, just continuing their level of excellent support and on-hand guidance.

Working as a teacher for Teacher Finder, Budapest

I began working for Teacher Finder soon after my arrival in Budapest in 2013. I have two sources of students: a subscription-based online matching service, and Teacher Finder. I have had much more work from the latter than I have the online fee-based system. I quickly discovered that the staff at Teacher Finder provided me with students promptly, and whenever I have dry periods, Teacher Finder is able to send new students my way.

The remuneration is good, especially for Budapest, and the commission is very fair: the cost of two lessons in return for the rest of the fee the student pays. And of course, when the student books another course of lessons, I get to keep all of their fee.

The staff at Teacher Finder are quick to respond to queries, are friendly and supportive. Thanks to Teacher Finder, I have managed to earn a living sufficient to remain in Budapest. I am thankful to this company for the work it has provided!
