I am an English Teacher in Prague. A few years ago I had some students who told me about a frustrating experience they had with the language agency I was working for: They would request a teacher from the agency, have an English lessson, decide he/she wasn't what they were looking for, and request a new teacher. This happened about five times. (Luckily, I was number five.)

This got me thinking. For a lot of industries there's a self-service option. If you want a holiday, you can call the travel agent or book everything yourself online. If you want to buy stocks, you can use a broker or the Internet. The same for real estate, dating, website design, even divorce. Sure it's a little more work to do it yourself, but a lot of people prefer it: you've got more control, and it's usally cheaper.

So why not the same for language teachers?
