We offer competitive salaries commensurate with ability and experience. We also provide our teachers with a variety of local support including Russian language courses.

About Moscow:
This modern, vibrant city of more than 10 million inhabitants is the political, cultural and historic capital of Russia. Whether it is your first visit or a return trip, living and working here can be uniquely memorable.

Teaching Here:
Most of our students are highly motivated young adults, typically 20-27 years old, who study English for work, career or travel. Teaching assignments are on-site for corporate clients as well as in classrooms. As our clientele grows, so does our staff. To accomplish this expansion, we need additional native-English language teachers beginning August 1 and September 1.

-Native English
-An internationally recognized TEFL qualification
-A university degree or equivalent vocational training
-At least six months of relevant teaching experience
-The ability to teach general and business English courses

NOTE: Applicants must have a valid TEFL certification and must be native English speakers.

We offer a 12-month contract. Working hours consist of 24 academic hours (45 minutes each) per week. Overtime pay is provided for teaching hours beyond 24 ach/wk. New terms start every six months. We offer payment and provision for all legal documents including a letter of invitation and a working visa for the period of agreement. We also provide emergency medical care insurance.

Pay rates vary from $18 to $22 per ach after taxes, depending on qualifications and courses taught. Salaries are paid twice per month. New teachers have a three-month probation period.

Accommodation and Transportation:
Apartments can be somewhat difficult to arrange in Moscow. Therefore, we help our teachers with finding private accommodation. The average rent for a one-room apartment is $700 to $800 per month.

As with any large metropolis, getting around this city is a challenge. Upon arrival, we offer transfer from the airport. Fortunately, the school is located in the heart of Moscow within easy walking distance to public transportation, including the vast underground metro system.

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.


I have learned the different classifications and knowledge required for each stage in a students devolvement. I also have received an overview of what are the positive traits that are looked for in a teacher/instructor and tips for succeeding. This lesson also made me aware of cultural difference that may be experienced in the class room regarding participation levels and students being vocal during discussions.From the introductory Unit I have learnt the definition of 'young learners' (their age range), also I got familiar with how this course works, and from the Units contents I was able to see what is the difference between TEFL course and this one. Also I refreshed the terminology I learnt before, in the TEFL course. And I was once again introduced to the employment perspectives for the holders of these certificates.
