Teach ESL to University and Adult Learners
in Korea at Pagoda Academy (Est. 1969)
Pagoda Academy offers a personally and professionally rewarding experience for dedicated and enthusiastic educators. Our programs, students, current teachers, and staff create a working environment that new teachers find very welcoming and supportive.
Pagoda Academy was founded in 1969 by Go In-Gyung and Park Kyung-Sil with the objective of developing foreign language education in Korea. Pagoda has grown considerably since then and currently employs over 100 foreign teachers who teach over 5000 students at branches in Seoul, Incheon and Busan.
Pagoda is dedicated to providing students with unmatched programs. We are also dedicated to providing teachers with an opportunity to develop as they teach ESL, EAP and Business English to our eager adult learners. PagodaAcademy has realized considerable success and has developed a reputation for being a leader in the ESL industry in Korea. With the help of our friendly staff, great teachers, and programs we hope to continue this tradition.
Pagoda Academy is looking for experienced ESL teachers with a background in English education or with a degree in Education, English, Linguistics, TESOL or Fine Arts (Writing). We also look for teachers who have taken an Intensive course (DELTA, CELTA or TEFL) and are looking to use those skills and further develop their strengths and other areas of teaching. However, this is not to say that we don’t accept applications from other candidates who may have graduated in a different area of study (Business/Liberal Arts). Some of our teachers were not formally trained as teachers, but through their enthusiasm, work ethic and willingness to learn have become excellent teachers.
There are many factors that make Pagoda Academy a great choice. Check out our Top 10 List and hear directly from our teachers.
We have teaching positions at our Jongro, Kangnam, Shinchon, Guro, Bupyeong and Busan branches for the end of December 2012 (year round openings too). Please let us know when you are looking to start.
We would need the following paperwork about 45 days prior to when you’d like to start teaching in Korea so be sure to get your FBI/RCMP or other federal background checks ready now along with the apostille or Korean Consulate notarization for Canadians. An apostille for your degree too or Korean Consulate notarization for Canadians is needed too, but no transcripts now. Visa Information
We look forward to hearing from you soon.
