I am not an expert in this area, but have you considered posting on OLX to exchange lessons English for Ukrainian/Russian?

That's the way I'd go about it.  I did that when I first came to Ukraine, but my wife now forbids it because of the young wide-eyed girls that wanted to be my "teacher."   

But I can say that system works.

I do not know if it is legal to post links here... So i won't

But I just signed up for a lesson, with an outfit that seems
very legit. Teacher will spend an hour, either in person or
via Skype. Her fee was $9.30 US.

They have many tutors, and you can pick and choose,
interview, find the right fit.

Hair... either PM me, or if a mod says it's OK, I will post a link here.

If it's something that will benefit others, post the link.

Thank God you responded to that Mike.   I kept coming back to this thread wondering if I should post the photo of the dominatrix giving language lessons via Skype.    I've been crying all morning from laughter thinking about it.   The photo was borderline -- but extremely funny -- you saved me from myself and my twisted sense of humor.

We're going to have to meet up for a brew or three sometime and see who gets to claim the title.

That's high IMO especially for online tutors.  But I don't live in the big city so what do I know?

USD 9 is much much much much too high.  Just calculate what a monthly salary of 300-500 USD p.m. comes to per hour

Yeah make it 100r an hour and you would be closer to the line maybe 125r but not 225r
Peace is the failure of the military to convince the government that it can and should kick its enemies ass.
