The vision of our school is to provide a new kind of English education here in Korea. Most private English academies in Korea tend to take the approach that the more students memorize and the faster they go through material, the better. We don’t believe this is a good way to earn a language. This type of education results in kids getting burned out and disliking English. We provide a very different learning experience for students. We believe that if students enjoy the process of learning English, they will learn better. At our school, we create a loving and nurturing environment in which students can learn. We place students at appropriate levels, so they can have challenges, but not be overwhelmed. We pace our curriculum, so that there is enough time for engaging activities which students will enjoy and which will help them learn better. By presenting a strong academic curriculum in this more fun and engaging way, students enjoy the process of learning English and learn it much better.
We have a morning program for preschool and kindergarten students. Unlike many other programs which only focus on language, we incorporate a lot of hands-on activities. We help young students develop holistically by providing them with opportunities to develop in the areas of motor skills, creativity, social skills, and artistic skills as well as in the area of language. We believe English should be the medium for holistic development instead of the focus of the entire program.
We also teach elementary students in the afternoons, after they finish with their regular public schools. Our students range from very beginners up through very advanced students who have attended schools overseas for many years. Regardless of the age or ability level, all classes are taught in the same fun, engaging way mentioned above.
KCTY is looking for:
→ Very dedicated teachers who are not afraid to work hard for their students and understand that the rigorous demands of being a teacher require hard work and dedication.
→ We have created a very positive and professional working environment, so we are seeking teachers who will contribute to this environment.
→ While we do have a lot of fun in our classes, the demands of the job are such that individuals who are more organized are more comfortable here.
→ At the same time, teachers in Korea need to be adaptable and have the ability to “go with flow” in this often spontaneous culture.
→ Naturally, we and the parents of our students place a very strong emphasis on academic improvement, so we are looking for teachers who are skilled at presenting lessons in a way that is very effective in helping students improve in their English ability.
Some of the benefits that come with working in our school include:
→ Working in a very bright, positive, and professional environment
→ Working in an environment which focuses on students and their learning instead of just getting through the pages allows you to feel like you’re making more of a difference in the students’ lives
→ Working with an American director eliminates difficulties in communication and culture in the workplace
→ Professional development program which assists teachers in their professional goals of developing as a teacher during their time with us
