Interlink English is looking for a qualified native English speaking teacher (4 year degree required, TEFL certificate a huge plus but not required with sufficient teaching experience) to join our team beginning on September 1st, 2008.
WHO WE ARE: A small language academy with a focus on fun in the classroom. The bulk of our students is ages 16-25 and come to us because they want to learn, not because their parents drop them off at our doorstep. Forget about classroom management sapping your energy and envision a classroom full of smiles and open minds! We also offer young learner classes in the early afternoons for children ages 6-8 and 9-12. Maximum class size for any age is 12 students making your teaching time far more beneficial for the students and relaxing for you!
WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR: A professional and experienced teacher with the desire to make learning interesting. We have a library of classroom materials and ready made lesson plans, but always encourage our teacher’s to make the lessons their own as much as possible. The majority of classes are with young adults (16-25 years old), though we seek a person who is also excited to work with younger learners. Creativity, patience, and dedication are qualities we cherish in a teacher.
WHAT WE ARE OFFERING: We offer $6,000 pesos per month for a maximum of 5 one-hour classes per day (Monday -Friday). Saturday classes are paid at a time and a half rate and are required for 3.5 months of the 12 month contract ($100 per hour bringing monthly salary to $7,600). At the completion of a 12 month contract we offer a cash bonus of $5000 Mexican Pesos. Three weeks of paid vacation (1 for spring break and 2 for Christmas) are included. We also assist in the VISA process and pay all expenses at the completion a 12 month contract. Furthermore, we offer the option of living in a semi-furnished apartment at the school with $800 being deducted from the monthly salary to ease your transition into town.
WHAT IS TUXTLA LIKE: Tuxtla has very few foreigners which means your Spanish will truly take off. The city itself has all the comforts of home (4 movie theaters, Sam’s Club and a variety of nightlife options) without taking away from the wonderful experience of living in beautiful Mexico. Day and weekend trips to quaint colonial towns, jungle ruins, and of course the beach is feasible and encouraged by our staff!
Interested applicants should e-mail a resume, copy of passport with photo, proof of undergraduate completion, letter of introduction and 2 professional letters of recommendation to the Academic Administrator, Tobin Hoffman at firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
