A well educated, experienced and energetic teacher required by friendly, foreign owned and run school, Banks & Lee Academic English for Winter Intensive Course.

** About us
I am a British national and my wife is Korean. We both have extensive university (Seoul National University) teaching experience and established our school in 2005. We teach a variety of classes, from standard pre- and elementary school classes to middle school. We also teach returnee level young learners.

Our curriculum is developing alongside our student base. What this means is that any teacher working with us would enjoy the following benefits:
1. A western management team; very approachable, reasonable and fair minded. Hopefully this will limit any opportunities for cross-cultural misunderstandings.
2. An opportunity for a proactive teacher to participate in the way in which our school and curriculum develop.
3. The potential to teach classes of a relatively high standard (higher level Elementary schoolers, M school and also returnees).
4. The future opportunity to do some editing and re-writing as this work expands.

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.

 

The unit gives examples of equipment that can be used in the class. There are also a lot of teaching aids. I found some of the given links to different educational resources really useful and I think some of them I can often use in my classes. I myself like to use videos a lot. With my adult students we watch a lot of movies and discuss them. With kids we watch cartoons, learn new words, do worksheets and colour.This unit provided me with a general overview about the importance of course books and lesson materials. I learned that it is important to omit, edit and modify these teaching materials using the teacher's discretion in order to cater to the different needs and levels of proficiency of the students. I think a combination of both authentic and created lesson material will be helpful to carry out effective lessons.
