Job Description

Debate & English Teachers Wanted in Seoul


What started as a literature and debate program with just one teacher has expanded immensely. With hundreds of students and locations in both Seoul and Bundang (a southern suburb), the future is bright for Leaders Academy. Leaders Academy prides itself in having top tier teachers from around the world coaching our students. Find out more at our website, Teachers at Leaders Academy have included top speakers and victors at WUDC and other international events.


Our debate program offers students a chance to learn and excel at debate. Other academies claim to teach debate, but really just offer conversation time. Leaders Academy trains students to be competitive. Our staff has more successful international coaching experience than all other debate academies in Korea combined. Our successes are not just limited to debate, but also include speech competitions, mock trial, Model United Nations, model congress and acting.


The English program at Leaders Academy offers gifted students a chance to advance their English even further through thematic instruction. English teachers examine reading skills, written assessments, essays, discussion and public speaking. This is NOT an ESL job, but an after-school program to keep advanced English speakers ahead in English. We use a healthy mix of fiction and nonfiction readings. Writing feedback should be ample, but class sizes are small.
