In Peru, there is an urgent need for English teachers in Lima especially. The numbers of available positions are abundant. Bigger companies have in-house instruction, but most people have to arrange their own lessons privately. Based on what previous experienced teachers have recorded, one must be careful about perks and salaries that are promised by some employers and not actually delivered. Salaries generally are $5.00 US per hour in an institution; private lessons are $10.00 US per hour. Cost of living is very low so depending upon how much the teacher wants to work will depend on how well he or she will do financially.
There can be an array of possibilities. One can choose from age groups and settings as to what ones would be best suitable. Lima may have positions for those who want to just teach in a business setting, public schools and language institutions. If one is interested in teaching in remote areas there are even ecotourism positions that may be available. The smaller metropolis of Cuzco, for instance, may offer positions from primary aged children to specialized adult learner classes.Some schools may offer furnished accommodations. Local people are considered to be very helpful to the foreigner who seeks a place to stay so one may not have to worry too much and make plans as you go along.
