Americans or Canadians only? :(

I've sent off my paperwork for my E2 and while I wait I'm looking at classifieds for teaching work and I'm seeing a lot of "American or Canadian only"...

 

Is being English and issue? I don't have a regional accent and speak fairly standard English.

It is much easier if you have a North American accent but you should still find something. I'm British, there are plenty of us here and co-workers/students/parents seem happy enough with my accent. Keep looking and good luck.

It also helps to check for typos...

I'm an Aussie and I still knock back work. In my experience the employers that specify this aren't the ones you want to work for anyway. Keep looking. Favourite response from on Irish guy asked by his K-Boss: "Can you speak American English?" Irish guy: "Can you?" Good luck and I hope you will find a great position.
