We are looking for Native level English speakers with a minimum of a Bachelor’s Degree, and prefer to hire those who have CELTA, TESOL, or TEFL certification and teaching experience.

Teaching in our summer program gives you a unique opportunity to exchange language and culture with a bright, amazing group of students. Our program is well structured and even offers you a week of paid holiday for the Water Festival to travel and explore the country. Although Myanmar is a developing country, it is changing rapidly. Flexibility and a sense of adventure will be to your benefit here, as well as a willingness to work within a team and to commit to a strong work ethic. Working hours are from 7:45 in the morning to 4:30 in the afternoon, Monday through Friday, and you will be teaching 25 teaching periods per week. Class sizes are small and kept at no more than 20 students. The salary offered is $2,600 for the whole 8-week period, accommodation is rent-free, and lunch is provided on school days.

If you demonstrate enthusiasm and dedication while working with us, and are able to prove your skills in teaching, and also find our work environment enjoyable, you may be offered a one-year academic contract upon completion of the summer program. Therefore, this 8-week summer school will serve as a probationary period. Our 2015─2016 academic year starts in June 2015.

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.


This unit sheds light at modal auxiliary verbs such as may, might, shall, should, will, would, must, have to, have got to, should/ought to, can, could, be able to and would. Giving teaching ideas and explaining basic rules to use them along with active and passive voice usage. I found the Phrasal verbs to be a little confusing but with enough practice and analysis it can be taught effectively.This unit is a comprehensive outline and overview of how to use music, games, stories, arts and crafts and holiday activities in the classroom. It reviewed different activities for different age groups and it explained when and how not to use certain activities. I thought this unit was very helpful because it was more tangible for me to see and learn how to use these activities in a classroom.
