Habit 9

[Looking for Bi-lingual(Korean/English) Teachers for Advanced Learners in Gangnam, Seoul]

Professionals recognize professionals. We are looking for TEACHERS not INSTRUCTORS. As a leading institution for English education and motivation, we consider intensive EFL courses and diverse motivation programs as two main pillars that support our vision: "We Teach to Influence Lives." Small size classes that consist of gifted students enable teachers to provide their pupils with customized educational service. In fact, most of the students go on to prestigious middle/high schools or universities, home and abroad. They also acquire a native command of both written and spoken English. More than half of the students have been attending Habit 9 for more than 4 years, which allows for a consistent and effective teaching.

We are located in one of the most thriving downtown areas of Gangnam, Seoul with the availability of convenient public transportation, popular fast food chains, coffee houses, and several grocery stores. Daechi-dong, a special district of education, well-known for ardent fervor for academic improvement, will be the stage you can develop your career as a professional English teacher.

Proactive teachers with the following qualifications are welcome here, and will be offered highly competitive reward. The more competent and devoted you are as a teacher, the more rewarding the position will turn out to be. If you are looking for a teaching position where you are appreciated for your professional performance, or would like to be given the opportunity to grow as an educator, this is the right place for you.
