Gangnam English Academy
We are looking to add to our team of 20 native English teachers for our English Academy and Kindergarten at Sinsa Dong 649-1, for contracts starting March 1, 2020.
Kindergarten Homeroom/Afterschool Teacher
Teachers are responsible for one kindergarten classroom of 5, 6, or 7 year olds from 9:30-2:30 each day with one hour lunch break. Planning time is available when the students are taking subject classes like gym, science, art, and baking. In the afternoons, teachers will teach elementary students for a two-hour class and have two hours of planning time, ending the day at 6:30. We also have shorter after-school schedules ending at 3:30 or 5:00 available.
Music and Drama Teacher
This teacher would teach 30-40 minute musical theater classes to 4, 5, 6, and 7 year old Kinder students in the mornings. Teaching songs, plays, poems, dances, basic instruments, and a love for music. There would be VERY little lecturing, the focus will be on participating and making music, dancing, and performing. A love for children, music, drama, being VERY active and having fun is required, but a music degree or a beautiful singing voice is not. This teacher would also need to teach in our after school, which would not be music-related. He or she would teach our usual afterschool subjects, like reading and comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, social studies, debate, etc.
Our school is different from other hagwons. Founded by an American and Swedish couple in 2013, it is a genuinely fun environment with lesson plans geared around speaking, writing, science, literature, and debate, with plenty of games and activities. We now have a team of 20 awesome Native English Teachers and 20 excellent bilingual Co-Teachers who make this a fun, collaborative place to work. You can read more on our website: GangnamEnglishAcademy.com/Teacher.
This is not a job for people who just go through the motions of teaching. We are looking for smart, dynamic, fun, and very enthusiastic people. We value high performing teachers, treat them like professionals, and reward them accordingly.
