My wife and I have both have had positive experiences doing private tutoring for students who are going abroad to college. Most have opted out of studying for GaoKao and concentrate strictly on English - both oral and written.
However, it does take a while to build a clientele and usually takes place in interaction with higher-educated professional parents.
By the way - - we never fall back on Chinese unless it is a totally, totally difficult situation. Everything MUST be done in English.
Would love to discuss Toastmasters but I am currently in San Diego.
Just go to a meeting and discuss with anyone - - or contact Alan Page (although he is Canadian, he still speaks English OK!!)
Good Luck - - and let us know how you make out.
Cheers - - JJ
