I get asked often about teaching English in Ukraine and I want to say, yes, this is a good idea, for many reasons. It’s fairly easy to get a job teaching English in Ukraine if you have literally any college degree or a TEFL certification. There are many schools who will hire you as a native speaker, but the pay won’t be great. Private tutoring pays much better, but you’ll need to start somewhere to build up a client list and reputation and one of the many English language schools is a great place to start. However, the main reason guys come to Ukraine isn’t to work as an relatively low paid teacher, it’s to meet women! This is the main benefit of teaching English in Ukraine. You are going to meet a ton of local women. I know multiple guys who taught English not for the paycheck but just for the social benefits. Getting paid was just a bonus.
Another option is to attend one of the many social English/Ukrainian/Russian language meetups that happen frequently around the city. There are some long standing clubs that meet in public places just to have conversations in English and meet new people and I will gladly put you in contact with these groups if you contact me. They can also be great for just making new friends and opening new doors to social event invitations here in Kyiv.
