Ian's Place, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

We're looking for a qualified native teacher to fill a full-time position starting July 1st. Our tutorial team consists of two native teachers and two local teachers. As a native teacher, English must be your first language. Applications from Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand or the UK will be given preference. Furthermore, you must have a CELTA or TESOL certification.

Our school is small and we have a good reputation for providing quality teaching. Reputation is everything and students soon get to know who the good teachers are and who to stay away from. As a small family run operation we work closely as a team. The salary is tied directly to your ability to teach. If you?re a good teacher then you will command a good salary, on the other hand, there will be a paucity of students. You can expect a salary that could range anywhere from 2000RM to 11, 880RM depending upon the reputation you develop as a teacher.

Working hours: Monday to Friday 1pm to 9pm = preparation + (3) 1.5 hr classes. Morning classes are optional. You?ll be paid more for these.

Student profile: Age 10 to 18 / Ethnicity: Korean

Time off: weekends and all Malaysian statutory holidays.

Each year we close for first three weeks in July.

We are a small enterprise and as such we don?t offer a health benefit plan. However, Dr. Anantha's Clinic is directly below our school and we have the inside track on the cheapest medical services in Malaysia.

We do not provide airfare.

We are registered in Malaysia, thus we can support you for a two year working permit. However, you must be over 27.

Initially, the incumbent will stay with Vicki and I until we can get you relocated into appropriate housing. We'll pick you up at the airport.

A telephone interview will be scheduled with the final list of candidates. If you have SKYPE from on your computer then it will make a phone interview easier. Our SKYPE handle is (rcmp25918).

If this position is something that interests you then please e-mail a copy of your resume and passport details to [email protected] You'll need to do a little research on living in Malaysia before sending your details. We're only interested in sincere people who want decent working/living conditions while teaching in a fun and structured environment. We maintain high standards of excellence, which in turn, translates into quality tuition that the parents are looking for. Thus, if you're willing to make this kind of commitment, then I'll be more than happy to answer whatever questions you might have. This position is open because our teacher is married to a Malaysian and will be relocating to his home town before the birth of their first child.

A copy of our contract is available upon request.

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.


There are many different teaching aids that can be used to make lessons more interesting, effective and less dependent on the textbook. Examples of good teaching aids are whiteboard/blackboard, iteractive whiteboard, ovehead projector, visuals aids, worksheets and work cards, DVDs, CDs, video camera, dictionaries, coursebooks, photocopier, resource books, videos, cassette recorder, computers, online resources and others.Unit 9 gives more specific information about lesson planning, than was previously covered. The general tips and advice will be useful, and the very specific example of a lesson plan will serve as a good visual aid to future organizational efforts. I will say that a good deal of the section feels rather arbitrary, and wishy-washy. For example, the unit says \"there are different schools of thought on [lesson planning]\
