English Teachers Needed
Wall Street English (WSE) is one of the world's most successful private English language schools and currently operates in 29 countries with over 460 centers. With just 6 years in business in Jakarta, WSE's success has been phenomenal – now over 8,000 students.
The first WSE in Indonesia opened in February 2007, in the heart of the capital city Jakarta, and is strategically located in a popular shopping district. The school’s design is one built on the principals of elegance and innovation, intent on redefining the way Indonesians think about English schools. Five additional schools followed rapidly at a rate of one per year, covering all parts of the city. Expansion plans this year include three additional new school openings and expansion outside of Jakarta as well.
WSE's students are mostly in their late teens, twenties or thirties, and are a blend of university students, office workers, high school students, housewives, and even celebrities. They are generally well-read and well-traveled, making them great conversationalists.
Wall Street English is owned by Pearson, the largest and most successful education company in the world. Our schools here in Indonesia have won the 'Best Service in Asia' awards and 'Best Service Globally' as well. So you can be sure that we are a company which holds to only the highest of standards.
