Description

Language Link Vietnam has held a superior reputation in Vietnam for over 20 years.

We've recently developed a unique, blended learning English program and will be rolling

it out in Ho Chi Minh City soon.

Key to the success of this program will be the teachers. We are hiring a team of native

English-speaking teachers who need to be experienced, mature, organized and passionate

about teaching.

Beyond the basics of what makes a good teacher, we need a teaching team that is even

more. The teachers on the team we are assembling must be dedicated to the value of

education and their role in it, and dedicated to working with others to create fun classes

that tie into the overall curricula. The teachers for this great new program must be

confident in their teaching abilities and commanding in front of a large classroom of

young adult learners, yet humble enough to accept feedback from teammates to continue

growing as a teacher, and contributing greatly to our program. In fact, you'll be helping

form the program as your experiences and continual feedback will absolutely drive its

growth as we expand it throughout Vietnam.

In addition to scheduled class time with teachers, students will spend guided and solo

time on our online learning platform. You'll of course be trained on the platform, but the

team needs to become comfortable with the interface and maintain a very regular, active

presence on it so students see it as live and engaging. This is crucial.

In addition to the other Native teachers and Vietnamese teachers on the team, you'll work

closely with our on-site coordinator and our program manager, who will oversee the

program as the team settles in. Teachers can expect to have 20-hour classroom weeks

with to-be- agreed-to additional time required for solid preparation and organization,

student communications, activity building and some out-of- classroom activities.

Responsibilities include:

- Leading, engaging classes of 50 students, held on a college campus in Ho Chi Minh with

the support of a Vietnamese English teacher.

- Working with the provided syllabus, adjust and add to the program academics to

progress students through beginner, elementary and pre-intermediate levels in an

engaging and coordinated academic environment.

- Creating and leading classroom activities, plus planning and organizing groups to

encourage out-of- class practice.

- Administering regular quizzes, mid-term and final tests.

- Participating in training workshops, meetings and weekly dinner hash sessions. (Free

beer!)

- Status reports, grading, student feedback, content development.

Requirements:

- AT LEAST two years of classroom experience with established class management skills,

plus additional work experience demonstrating progressive responsibility.

- A genuine commitment to education and understanding of non-western perspectives.

- Humble and confident, strong internal drive and mature social and communication

skills. In other words, an aptitude for being a valuable participant of a team. This is

supremely important.

- Commitment to the full run of the program, from one-year to 18 months, depending on

class schedule. This is non-negotiable.

And of course:

- A relevant and reputable teaching certificate or degree, plus

- A BA/BS degree in any subject.

- A clean Police Clearance Check.

- Must be a native English speaker.

- Verifiable references.

Language Link Vietnam provides:

- A higher than average hourly salary (no, really)

- Visa & work permit support

- Setup of a local bank account

- Direct deposit for salary

- Great professional support

- Sick days and holidays off

- Welfare team support, with 24/7 emergency assistance

- Ongoing training

- Professional development opportunities

- Access to teacher's room and resources library, as well as an extensive online

teacher’s room
