School Types

Private Schools

  • Private school teachers are responsible for creating and implementing an immersive and interactive environment for students to practice and improve their English Language and communication skills. Teachers have the ability to create their own lesson plans and enjoy a fair amount of autonomy for planning and delivering their own lessons and educational content. This may seem daunting to many, but within a short time it will become very easy with the assistance of your employer, co-workers, and staff.

Private Kindergartens

  • Private Language Centers: Private Language Centers and kindergartens are  attended outside of students’ core schooling time or before they attend elementary school. Teachers are tasked with delivering the school’s set curriculum in a fun, engaging, and informal manner. Classes are typically small and some structured training is provided on the school’s preferred teaching methodology and curriculum. You will normally be supported by local staff and you will most likely also work with other expat teachers too.
