Job Teaching EFL in Argentina (2)

Date posted:2016-12-01 | Writer: ELAS Global | Email: [email protected]

ELAS is a service company that provides English language advice for employees of companies, particularly those working in multinational or international relations. We have occasional opportunities for TEFL certified teachers in and around Buenos Aires, and currently need a professional adult teacher for small group classes with adult students which meet in Puerto Madero Monday and Wednesday midday. It is also likely that the teacher be offered more classes, so applicants may wish to describe their current or projected availability (times and barrios) and barrio where they live in the body of the email when sending a CV. This helps see who could be a fit for the other classes. Filling the Puerto Madero classes is a priority, so we are accepting applicants for this course even if they are exclusively applying for it.

We are a small, teacher-run start-up company which is growing, mostly via word-of-mouth recommendations. We provide the highest-quality teaching to clients (usually medical or technical professionals) in a relaxed and conversational environment. Teachers should be able to tailor materials to students' interests and professional needs. Teachers need to be able to prepare and print materials, and evaluate and track students' progress. Our business philosophy is that teachers working in a peer-environment with a reasonable amount of respect will prioritize classes and provide better teaching to clients. We pay $140 pesos an hour to start. If you have any room in your schedule to fill, please respond to this posting.

Candidates must be TEFL/TESOL certified or have ample experience. Only applicants who are planning to stay in Buenos Aires to complete the whole term or longer will be considered. Due to the overwhelming response to these job postings, we ask that all responses contain the following information, in addition to a CV:

1) Name, nationality and region where you are from

2) Barrio where you live

3) Confirm that you are applying for the the Puerto Madero classes, which meet Mon/Wed from 12:30-2:30pm. (NOTE-there is a possibility that the schedule will be Mon/Tues, same time, so go ahead and apply if you are not available Wed)

4) [if interested in additional classes] Provide your schedule in a simple way in the body of the email so we can see when you are available to work, and WHERE you are at those times, as travel time is a factor. In the case that something could be moved for the right offer, indicate this please. Listing where you are already working helps me see possibility in your schedule, so please do include that information.

**Note for non-Buenos Aires based applicants- ELAS offers part time teaching work in Capital Federal, but does not hire full time teachers and therefore we can only consider applicants already living in Buenos Aires. Please only contact us once established here. Thank you.**

Thank you very much for your time and good luck in your job search.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


The difference between the videos was amazing. I liked how the teacher engaged the students and helped them to understand the lesson. I especially liked the idea of creating a new animal. The students are able to learn several new terms and concepts. I also liked the idea of having the new students write their name and hang it from the desk. The teacher was able to easily use their names.I found this subject very hard. i will wait to see what results I get, but I still need to do quite some work on all aspects of the unit: phrasal verbs, relative clauses and passive voice. I understood modal auxiliary verbs a lot more., however, still need to practice the difference in uses between them. I know the practical aspect nd when to use them, but not so much in explaining them.
