I wrote a very extensive guide on that topic here: http://moscownightguide.com/teaching-en ... sia-guide/

Basic points:

-Don't do it for the money
-Don't do it if you haven't got another goal
-Don't do it for the girls
-Don't do it for a long time
-Don't do it if you're socially awkward
-Don't think you'll make good money if you don't put in the effort and haven't got a clue what you're doing

Do it if you're ready to hustle hard, be at it constantly, have a talent for communication and languages and are a self-starter.
What do you mean by socially awkward? I think a large number of guys might be socially awkward if they go abroad to get a woman.
Mentally ill is another word one could use too

I also worked for a business gazette too, writing business news articles. You can get those too, if you are a good writer. Or work as an editor in some English publication there. You get like 50 dollars per article. Not bad. But you gotta live on the outskirts of the city to get cheaper rent. Or stay in a hostel everyday. lol
I live in St. Pete, and my rent - on the outskirts of town (i.e., near the end of a metro line) - is about $370/mo (it costs one month's rent for the agent fee, but that is only needed to be spent once). There are some hostels that cost less than that, perhaps $6/day.

What's your visa situation? Are you able to stay in Russia full time?
