We’re looking for TEFL qualified ESL instructors to teach adults in Manaus, capital of Amazonas state in Brazil. Our school specializes in teaching English language to adults. Most of our classes are one on one at the school or on the premises of multinational companies, with a few classes of between 3 and 5 students. These companies are located in different parts of the city and teachers commute by public transport to different parts of the city every day for classes. Cost of transportation is paid by the school. 

Teachers usually have about 4 hours of classes spread throughout the day. There is no fixed daily schedule. Teachers should be comfortable with students at all levels, ages and sexes.

Our hourly wage is 20 Brazilian Reals(about 12.00 US Dollars). We pay biweekly. We guarantee minimum 20 hours per week (about 1,000 USD / month).

Accommodation: We offer subsidized, decent private air-conditioned accommodation in a safe and respectable neighborhood. The rooms are furnished with a bed, writing desk, cable T.V and internet. Teachers pay 200 Reals (about 120 USD) monthly as rent (the school in effect pays 50% of the rent). Electricity, cable T.V and internet bills are paid by teachers. Rooms are private but teachers share kitchen, toilets and bathrooms with colleagues from other English speaking countries.

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.


At first I thought that this unit is very easy but once I've started it, i understood how wrong I was. There are so many small details that you have to pay attention to, otherwise you will make a mistake. I really like the explanations in here, especially the table the changes with the changes in the reported speech. It helped me a lot. Although, I would suggest to add more examples to show how it works.This unit covered the future tenses, their appropriate forms, and some teaching ideas. This lesson was a bit more challenging than the present and past tenses. I had a hard time wrapping my brain around the FPC since I do not remember hearing it. It is easy to identify because for me since this case is so odd. I learned what was what as far as the forms which I knew, but didn't know the label for it.
