We Are Hiring Teachers!

We are looking to add to our team of 15+ 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 lunch break. Planning time is available when the students are taking subject classes like gym, science, and art, at least 30 minutes each day. In the afternoons, teachers will teach a 2-hour class, and have 2 hours of planning time, and finish the day at 6:30pm. We also have shorter after-school schedules ending at 3:00 or 5:00 for anyone interested.

Our school is very different from other hagwons. Founded by an American and Swedish couple in 2013, it is a genuinely fun environment with lesson plans geared around Speaking, Writing, Science, Literature, Social Studies, and Debate, with plenty of games and activities.

Our teachers are smart, dynamic, experienced, and deliver the material with creativity and passion. We value high performing teachers, treat them like professionals, and reward them accordingly.
