TBI Bogor: Teacher Needed (Start 9th April 2007)

The British Institute Bogor is looking for one teacher to join its team in April.

Bogor itself is a small city with a lot of character situated near a few beautiful mountains and volcanoes. The capital city of Jakarta is only 1 hour away and our nearest beach can be easily reached for weekend breaks.

TBI Bogor is a large afternoon and evening English school mainly catering for children and young adults although the school does have some older students.

Teachers are required to teach 20 hours a week Monday to Friday from the hours of 2.30pm until 9pm at the latest. 20 days personal holiday are allocated each contract and a further 20+ days are issued for national holidays (5 for Idul Fitri, 5 for Christmas and many Indonesian national holidays – 14 in 2007).

The teacher should be prepared to teach the following:

Business English
TOEFL iBT Preparation
IELTS Preparation

You should hold a CELTA certificate or equivalent although teachers with experience will also be considered. You must hold a passport from an English speaking country. A degree is not necessary.

Teachers are paid Rp 8,100,000 per month with a $200US bonus after completion of 3 month probation with a further $800US after completion of the contract. Any teaching hours over the 20 hours contracted are compensated with overtime. Teachers will also be covered by medical insurance and will be given help with settling into Indonesian life.

Please contact [email protected] and attach a copy of your C.V. and scans of your teaching certificates.

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.


Learning about the different verb tenses in a language can be very tough. For example, I am learning Spanish and there are so many different verb tenses. I also have no recollection of being taught the different tenses and the names of the verb tenses during my schooling. These units are helping me understand the parts of grammar better as well as learn ways to encourage my students to learn the different tenses.This more advance use of grammar is often second nature for native English speakers but can be extremely confusing for English language learners. It's provides the user with more colourful options in writing and speech and therefore should be saved for more advanced students. Students will probably learn best from hearing examples and developing an idea for what sounds right and how to use it in different contexts.
