What makes us different than other English schools?
1. We care about our teachers. We’re not too big, so we know everyone. There is always someone available to provide support in English (apartment set-up, questions about documents, problems with the trains – anything!).
2. No surprises. We take a more straightforward approach to placement and discuss it with you before you arrive (you don't find out just before signing a contract).
3. No gimmicks. Your contract is clear and you always get your stated salary on time. We don’t use overly-complicated incentive plans to determine your payment.
4. Continuous training and follow-up to help you grow as a teacher. We won't forget about you after your first week.
5. Upward mobility. We have opportunities for advancement, promotions, and incentives available.
6. Social events. We are always planning events to give our teachers a chance to hang out with each other and relax outside of work.
