post #571 of 577

Hey errbody. I own (with two partners) a test prep business in Asia. SAT, APs, stuff like that. Been doing this stuff here since '02, but this is year six of the business.

 

(my parents are both teachers too, fwiw)

I always thought IB has had a larger presence outside the US than AP. Is that shifting as more international students attend US colleges/universities?

You're right, but I'm dealing specifically with students who are aiming for US colleges and universities--kids who attend international schools (many of which use the IB curriculum, of course), boarding schools in the US (and elsewhere), and the elite Korean foreign language high schools.

 

Our main business is SAT-1 Writing and CR, but we also do pretty well with AP US History, AP World History, AP English Language & Composition, and AP English Literature & Composition.

During the summer and fall, I work at a learning center that offers SAT and SAT prep. Also, another teacher and I occasionally will offer a weekend 'crash course' the weekend before an exam. I also teach AP Lang, and, though I haven't officially taught it, cover a lot of AP Lit material in an honors class.

The private boarding schools I taught at had a lot of international students (mostly Koreans at the time but Chinese were increasing). I was always surprised how much money their sponsors brought in. They easily brought in as much money as I did teaching full time (if not more) and they only worked on the weekends since the kids boarded during the week. That'd be a nice gig when I retire.

Yes, I have a lot of students from US boarding schools (Exeter, PA, SPS, Hotchkiss, etc.). Every boarding school nowadays has a significant Korean contingent, although Chinese students have overtaken Koreans at many schools.
