We are looking for energetic, passionate, creative, FUN teachers who are serious about being the best teachers they can be. Administration provides a lot of support to teachers as they are the reason students keep coming to class. Teachers work Tuesday through Saturday, 18-24 hours per week, and they earn enough to live on. The contracts are for 9 months but can be extended up to 12 months. All teachers have kids and adult classes, and they are given all the materials they need to teach (coursebooks, audios, materials, markers, exams, a syllabi for each course, etc). We teach all levels of English. We start classes throughout the year. Teachers may have other jobs as we do not require exclusivity.
