Hi! I’m Aemily Yang with Sewoon VIVA English Academy in Gwangju, South Korea. We are currently looking for some motivated and enthusiastic English Teachers to come and work for our school. Our school is located in the fifth largest city in South Korea. Gwangju is renowned for its culture, history, art and food. There is a large foreigner population and there are many fun things to explore and do. You can visit one of the cities many beautiful art galleries, wander around its bustling downtown area for some shopping and coffee, go to a baseball game to see one of Koreas best teams (the Gwangju Kia Tigers), or hike up the beautiful Mudeung Mountain.
We are one of the top academies in the city, as well as one of the largest with more than 400 students. The school offers two programs; an English kindergarten program that helps prepare 5-7 year old children for public school and an elementary program that furthers student’s English learning. These programs are taught in different buildings, but they are located next to each other. The Kindergarten offers a great curriculum with a wide variety of subjects, which you will have the opportunity to help create and implement. These classes are taught in the morning from 9am-12:30pm. In the afternoon the elementary classes are taught from 1pm-6pm. The class sizes are mid-sized, between 3-12 students. This gives you an opportunity to develop great relationships with your students and offer the best learning experience for each of your classes. Also, the school has a great working environment. You will be working with seven other outgoing and friendly foreigner teachers, along with many, equally as friendly, Korean co-teachers. We just built a new building in 2010 with a computer in every class room and up to date facilities, making for a great teaching environment. We have a great management team that offers loads of help with settlement, work life and any other issues.
The contract we offer is an independent contract. Our base salary is 2.4 million, which includes housing close to the school. A higher salary can be negotiated with higher qualification, for example a master’s degree. Contracted working hours are between 9am-6pm, Monday to Friday. Because we offer an independent contract, pension and medical are not offered, therefore not deducted from our employee’s monthly pay. The only monthly deductions are taxes.
If you wish to fill this exciting job position or have any questions, please feel free to contact me at any time. I will be happy to help you. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
