[nobe-l] introduction and seeking an advise

I'm afraid that Russian is not widely studied in public schools, perhaps
at some private ones. It may be possible to teach at the university
level with just a masters, since many universities hire language
teachers who only have a masters, albeit often on a part-time basis, at
low pay, and with minimal benefits. It may be worth looking at the jobs
section in the Chronicle of Higher Education for instance. The site is
www.chronicle.com. The academic job market is pretty bad as well, but as
a native speaker, you may have an edge. Also, there's private tutoring,
though I have no idea about how that industry works. I hope this helps.
