We are looking for up to 3 native English teachers for our English Academy and Kindergarten in Apgujeong, at Sinsa Dong 649-4. Possible start date can range from now through August 2016.
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 (6-8 students) and lesson plans geared around speaking, writing, Science, Literature, Social Studies, and Debate, with plenty of games and activities. Founded in September of 2013, we now have 10 foreign teachers and over 200 students, ages 5-12. You can read more on our website: GangnamEnglishAcademy.com.
