Here’s a short video of our school and classroom learning situations.
Korean students are interviewed so you can hear their English levels and get a glimpse of their personalities. Worth watching!
I worked here for a year in 2008. Highly recommend this position for novice teachers!
Decent contract, pay, and apartment IF it’s your first teaching job in Korea.
Respectable pay but low on benefits for teachers. You’ll get paid on time. But, you will be expected to teach even if you’re sick. Typical Korean work culture.
High turnover among management and faculty. Don’t treat Korean employees well.
Teacher trainers and head instructors will periodically monitor your classes and meet with you to discuss your teaching style and evaluate your performance.
They use CCTV to monitor classrooms. Big brother!
The students are great. Well behaved. Easy to teach lessons. Some 3 hour classes can get tiring.
You’ll have to sometimes attend unpaid seminars on weekends. No teaching on weekends, however.
Watch out for contract loopholes regarding benefits, vacation and pay.
You’ll get two days off per week, but it may not be Saturday and Sunday. Examine your contract and ask questions.
Very little vacation time and you’ll need to request time off before hand. One teacher had to work Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Hard to travel outside of Korea since you could be working Korean holidays.
Each school branch is different in management. Some are good, some are bad.
Not enough teacher training for newbies. Training is pathetic.
Lack of transparency between management and teachers.
They only pay for your plane ticket to Korea.
Strict curriculum. Lessons can get monotonous. Very little room to create fun lessons to match students needs.
It’s a business not a school. Some teachers in other branches have to work Saturdays and split shifts. Check your contract!
More stable than other hagwons. Good pay, good coworkers, free apartment.
