Teaching English as a second language requires enthusiasm, creativity, and patience.  Teachers, of course, must also be fond of and willing to work with children, and be capable of cultivating a friendly, yet orderly environment in the classroom.  Successful teachers are able to build a rapport with children easily and work well with their co-workers and managers.  Teachers should be well organized and mature, with a good sense of humour.  Clear, articulate speech is a must. Candidates for teaching positions at KNS are chosen with careful consideration to these qualities.

Interested parties please email your resume and cover letter to Leon Ranger at the e-mail address given on the job heading.

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.


Teaching new language is a very important aspect in the classroom. This unit gave good examples on how to structure a lesson and what activities to use. The example for the use of realia to elicit vocabulary is very effective. Another interesting aspect are the different forms of language e.g. formal, colloquial etc, to show students the difference as well as when and how they are appropriate to use.This unit broke down the special considerations to take when teaching different types of students. I found the considerations for one on one teaching and business English the most helpful as they are quite different from the other teaching techniques we have been learning. For example, there needs to be much more emphasis on the individual's needs and interests in order to make the lesson successful.
