We Are Hiring Teachers!

We are looking to add to our team of 20+ native English teachers. We usually hire teachers starting in March, but we hire throughout the year, as we add students and open new classes regularly.

Kindergarten Homeroom/Afterschool Teacher

These teachers are responsible for one kindergarten classroom of 5, 6, or 7 year olds from 9:30-2:30 each day with a one hour lunch break. Planning time is available when the students are taking subject classes like gym, science, art, and baking, at least 40 minutes each day. After school, these teachers will have one full class from either 2:30-4:30 or 4:30 to 6:30, and sometimes half of the other session. So each afternoon includes 1-2 hours of planning time. We also have shorter after-school schedules ending at 3:00, 5:00, or 6:00 (for lower pay) for anyone interested.

Our school is very different from other hagwons. Founded by an American and Swedish couple in 2013 as an after-school academy, it is a genuinely fun environment with small classes (10-12 students in Kinder classes, 6-8 students in after school) and lesson plans geared around speaking, writing, Science, Literature, Social Studies, and Debate, with plenty of games and activities.
