Job Description

On Teach Away, you can find English teaching jobs in Korean public and private schools. Both sectors have a lot to offer ESL teachers.

Public schools in Korea offer a great working environment and the opportunity to have an authentic Korean experience. Teachers who are hired to work at public schools work directly for the Korean Ministry of Education, teaching English to students and assisting their Korean co-teachers. The structured teaching schedule allows teachers to enjoy evenings and weekends off, giving teachers plenty of time to explore their surroundings.

Private Schools in Korea, also known as Hagwons, offer some of the most attractive employment packages for English teachers who want to teach abroad. With flexible hours, competitive salaries, and benefits that include free flights and accommodations, hagwons are a popular option for teaching jobs in Korea.
