Hi Venus

Welcome to the forum and thanks for becoming a Premium Member.

Have you tried asking at the British Council? It's possible they could help you either by recommending someone or possibly putting the word out that you're looking for a teacher.

http://www.britishcouncil.org/india-common-mumbai.htm

Meanwhile, since you're interested in writing, we have a forum which might interest you.
http://britishexpat.com/expatforum/gene ... m.php?f=72

You can talk about anything writing-related on there and exchange information. Hope to see you there.

hi,
thanks for the mail.i did contact british council in mumbai and delhi.in mumbai,they do not have creative wrting classes,however,in delhi,they do.
i do not want to go to delhi for the two month classes,as i live in mumbai.secondly,the classes in delhi at british council are mostly conducted by indians,who are well qualified.however,i prefer a native british teacher.
i shall visit the forum you recommended too.thanks for the help.

Here's another suggestion. You could get in touch with the British High Commission.

http://ukinindia.fco.gov.uk/en/about-us ... /contactus

web.newdelhi@fco.gov.uk

Ask them to put you in touch with the Community Liaison Officer (CLO) for Mumbai. Even if the CLO can't recommend anyone, they'll most likely give you a free advert in their newsletter to members, or at the very least, stick a "teacher wanted" flier on their noticeboard.

I'm surprised that the British Council wasn't more help. Many of their (native British) teachers are quite low paid and I'd have thought that one of them would jump at the chance of making a little extra by providing private tuition. Again, perhaps you could make a flier with "Teacher Wanted" and ask them to stick it on their notice board or pass the news around.
