    Is it realistic to aim to become a modern languages tutor as a full income source rather than a teacher?

    I think in the London area - yes. But I'm based around Manchester.

    I'd be able to teach all levels for 2 modern European languages (which my degree is in) - and up to conversational level for 2 more European languages. I could also become TEFL certified and teach English as well (being a native English speaker).

    I realise leaving the EU could (potentially) be a blow to EU language learning, depending on what deal will be struck. However, it will almost certainly eventually reduce the number of EU nationals in the country, meaning that British natives (like myself) will face less competitive.

    Will I definitely need classroom based teaching alongside/as a main income source?

    Thoughts, especially related to income levels, appreciated.
