This is a bit strange and ironic coming from your resident unemployed person but just to let everyone know, if you're looking for a job as a Tagalog instructor, the people at Defense Language Institute are in need of people... I applied and decided to pass it along to everyone in case someone is fluent in a niche (Bicolano, Ilocano, Waray Waray) Filipino language.... read the email below..
My name is Caitlin Marshall and I am the HR Coordinator for a local language school. We are looking for creative ways to reach out to ethnic communities around DC, and I'm contacting you because we would currently like to expand our pool of experienced Tagalog instructors (all dialects). Perhaps you can share this information with your group.
We have periodic short and long-term opportunities to teach mostly military and government students at our headquarters in Rosslyn and for our off-site clients. Applicants can expect a schedule of between four and eight hours of work per day.
The requirements for successful applicants are:
1. Preference will be given to applicants with 2 years of experience teaching languages to adults 2. Applicants must be educated native speakers (with a university degree, preferably from an institution where the target language was the medium of instruction) 3.

Please send resumes to [address removed]. We will contact qualified applicants for interviews.
This group is intended for Filipino-American living in the DC metro area to meet, greet, share life stories and their experiences, and ultimately, have FUN!!. This is a chance for us to start new friendships, enjoy some happy hours, karaoke, watch Pacquiao fight, enjoy activities such as lunches/dinners, get away, sporting events, movies, shows, food festivals, potlucks, etc., etc...... all Filipinos, young and old are encouraged to join this group.
