Seeking an energetic, dynamic and creative ESL English Teacher to join our team of phenomenal educators in in Gwangju Metropolitan City [Jeollanamdo], Korea
Pagoda Junior Foreign Language Institute: Sangmu Branch in Gwangju Metropolitan City [Jeollanamdo]
Pagoda Junior Foreign Language Institute is seeking an energetic, dynamic and creative ESL English Teacher to join our team of phenomenal educators. Pagoda Junior Foreign Language Institute is a progressive language institute in Korea.
We are looking for high-energy, positive, popular, genuinely happy teachers. Teachers that the students are always happy to see and a teacher that enjoys what they do and is passionate about teaching. The position is high energy and the atmosphere is warm.
To give you an idea of the cost of living in Korea, the average meal out costs between $4-$10. Transportation is convenient and costs are under $1.20 one way. Teachers are able to select their own housing in the open market allowing them more freedom in their own lives.
This is definitely an experience that you will never forget. Traveling and working in another country will be different, but we will meet you at the airport and make sure you are taken care of when you come to Korea. We have a very positive atmosphere in the company and are looking for people that will be a great addition to our team!
The ideal applicant:
The ideal applicant holds a degree in Education, English, Communications, or Linguistics. Teaching experience and/or experience in the field of childcare is almost a must. He/she is a blend of 3 main ingredients: love, discipline, and intelligence. Korean children are a bit more fragile than their Western cousins, and a little love goes a long way. I used to describe this quality as ‘gentleness,’ but I found that teachers can appear gentle without giving themselves to students, so I emphasize that the teachers must really care for the students. Discipline is required not only to keep up our tight schedule, but also to keep your students disciplined (while still remaining gentle!). There are SO many reasons why intelligence is required, but I hope most are obvious. He/she knows that this is a job and not a vacation, despite being far from home. Many people make EFL a career, and I expect such dedication. Above all else, he/she must love being around children because that is what it’s all about.
