Torino Inglese - The Concept
TorinoInglese exists to provide a trustworthy place where potential students can search for private teachers in their local area and to provide English teachers with a place where they can promote themselves effectively and professionally. We want to help promote independent teachers who live and work here in Italy and provide face to face lessons. That's a pretty simple concept.
Finding Private Students
If you teach English in Italy you already know that the only way to earn a decent income is to teach privately. As a private teacher you also get to manage your own time and decide when and where you work. The problem is finding private students. So, there's a question: How do you find private students?
What we do, works!
TorinoInglese is new. Unknown. So, we're going to do the same with it as we did with MilanoInglese. When we created MilanoInglese.it we spent a lot of time working out how best to promote it. We're still learning, but even so, our MilanoInglese.it website receives more enquiries each day than any language school in Milan. If that sounds a bit grand, go and have a look on Google. For more or less any phrase including the words 'inglese' and 'milano' we come out at or near the top of the results. The relevance of this is that Google sends the average person looking for English lessons or an English teacher in Milano to MilanoInglese.it first. Obviously, this didn't happen overnight, and it won't happen overnight in Torino either! Those teachers who are on board when the site launches will benefit the most because we deliberately restrict the number of teachers who can register, to ensure everybody gets plenty of work.
I've been a freelance teacher for years, choosing freedom of teaching methods over restrictions imposed by schools, but before Milanoinglese came along, I used to really struggle to find students, people just didn't seem to trust ads.....now I'm struggling to cope with all the requests I'm getting!
Milanoinglese has been and continues to be invaluable to me, and students know it's a trustworthy place to find a teacher! Anna - English teacher in Milano
If you are a mother tongue English teacher working in Milan, you already know it can be a huge challenge. MilanoInglese is a fantastic website that has made a huge difference in helping to find quality work.
By far the best method to advertise for English mother tongue teachers and well worth it.Christy - English teacher in Origgio
I'm an experienced English teacher working in Milan and I've been registered on MilanoInglese for the past 20 months or so. I highly recommend this site to any teachers looking to widen their client base. It allows potential students to find you with ease (try googling 'inglese milano') and has brought me a lot of new work in just one year.Mark - English teacher in Milano
