Business/Organization Type: 

Seoul English Village Pungnap Campus is looking for 1 international teacher to teach English starting in early July 2015, on 1-year contract. Our school is quite different from the hagwon or public school environment. Our main focus is to teach English through a variety of fun real-life situations where students are not burdened with grades or tests. Some of our classes include: Cooking, Sports, Science Experiments, Chocolate Making, Economy, First Aid, and many more! Basic requirements are as follows:

  • Citizenship from a recognized English-speaking nation: U.S., U.K., Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand or South Africa.
  • Original bachelor’s degree/diploma from an accredited college or university (4 years in US/3 years in UK).
  • Original national level criminal record check (FBI in the U.S.) that is clean of any charges or convictions
  • Clean health check and drug test.

Teachers who have experience must provide proof and letters of recommendation, contact information, certificates, etc. Experience with children is a plus and gives an edge over teachers who do not have experience.

We also have to work at the weekends during our 5 week Winter and Summer camps, and days off will be given during the week. Every month during the rest of the year (at overtime pay), teachers take turns for teaching one or two weekend days. Generally, you will have your weekends free for most of the year. Extra weekend overtime is also available.

Usually you will be teaching Elementary students grades 3-6 and a few Kindergarten classes per month. Sometimes during the year we get middle/high school students and even university students.
