Certified teachers needed to start
Monthly Pay 2.55~2.95 Million Won based on Merits, 4 Weeks Paid Vacation, National Pension
KnK International Homeschool, which is located in Bundang, a satellite suburb of Seoul, is looking for qualified native teachers who can start to teach from December 30.
This is the perfect job for teachers who are looking for a great job, in a wonderful school with the strengths of a 'standard' system without all the administrative red-tape.
The teacher will teach North American Elementary or Middle School subjects such as Language Arts, Science and Social Studies, from standard native-English texts (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Scholastic, etc.). We use a modified North American curriculum, with small class sizes (a maximum of 8 students per class), and MOST of the students either have already, or will soon, study & live overseas. The students are from 1st Grade to 9th Grade in Korean public/private schools.
We prefer the certified teachers who have previous teaching experience, from the U.S.A, Canada and/or another country's elementary or middle school system.
* Native English Speaker
* BA/BS (or higher) in Elementary Education, English (Literature), History and other relevant majors (Speech Communications, Theater, Early Childhood, etc.)

* No Split Shifts
* During Our Summer and Winter Intensives: Classes run Mon. thru Fri. 12:30 pm - 9:30 pm, therefore, possibilities exist for teachers to collect great over-time during Intensive months (usually held in August and January).
Salary: Basic Monthly Salary, Quarterly 'Merit' Bonuses, and Severance
* Basic salary will be determined based on applicant's education, qualifications, and teaching experience.(2.55-2.75 million Won per month)
*'Merit' quarterly bonuses will be given at the end of each quarter, depending on a teacher's performance in the previous three months.

'Good' Evaluation = 300,000 won EXTRA for that quarter

'Excellent' Evaluation = 600,000 won EXTRA for that quarter
(Almost all of our teachers have received 'excellent' evaluations and full bonuses for the past 5 years)
* Severance pay (or the equivalent of 1 month's basic salary) will be given after the completion of a one-year contract.
* Single furnished housing that is comfortable and convenient
* 500,000 Won per month will be given as a housing allowance if the teacher does not need furnished housing provided.
