Job Description:

Emmanuel English Learning Center

Emmanuel English Learning Center in Penghu is looking for a seasoned, dynamic, creative, gifted, loving teacher with goals of no less than a full year and preferably at least basic Mandarin communication skills. Currently only looking for a native speaker from the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, or New Zealand. Must have some type of ESL training certificate or at least 4 years’ experience in the field.

We have our own curriculum which is taught largely through activities so the teacher must be well versed in using activities efficiently and effectively. Of course, with the world under a pandemic, the teacher must be flexible in understanding the pressures on the cram school environment may mean changes and adaptations that are unforeseen. The teacher may be required to drop some classes and do some online if we are once again put under lockdowns and stringent regulations. There is nothing we can do about these. Please note that the position is for a true teacher who speaks well and clearly, knows natural phonic rules and can mimic American phonics for those specific lessons, is somewhat proficient in English grammar usage and explanation and can teach writing of various forms. It is not a “conversation” English job or for those who think teaching is just presenting English to a class. The teacher is responsible for the actual long-term student retention of the language. Therefore, preparation of classes usually takes time and effort as well as skill in knowing how to reach a certain set of students and meet their specific challenges. In training, there is oversight so those persons with an easily bruised ego are not real candidates. Those with a strong will to improve their teaching abilities and thicker skin thrive with the training and challenges! The teacher shares classes with other teachers on different days of the week so teamwork is necessary. There’s no room for individuals in our program, only team workers.

Hourly pay starts at NT$800 for those with the above mentioned qualifications and increases are awarded for expertise and diligence. If the applicant has many years of experience that translates into quick proficiency of our style or is a gifted teacher, the wage increase can be anticipated soon. Full time for us means 17 to 23 teaching hours a week. We currently are looking for someone who would like a light schedule of about 15 teaching hours a week. Earliest possible class starts at 14:30 but for most teachers the classes begin at 16:00 or 16:20 and go to 21:00.

The environment is often both a blessing and a challenge to newcomers. Some people experience “cabin fever” in Penghu in the winter when the wind howls. If the teacher doesn’t speak much Mandarin, or doesn’t actively enable coping strategies such as hobbies or sports, he/she may find the winters disappointing. On the other hand, the beaches are gorgeous, winter windsurfing is world-class, spring to fall surfing, snorkeling, SUPing or biking are fantastic and the natural environment is fabulous. A “commute” of 30 minutes is the farthest one can live from the school due to geographical limitations. A flight to Taipei Song Shan airport on the brown MRT line is 50 minutes and costs around NT$1700 one way. There are roughly 10 flights daily in the low season to Taipei. Penghu does have McDonalds, Dominoes Pizza, Mos Burger, Starbucks, 7-11, a new movie theater and Watsons etc.

When applying for jobs, you should NEVER have to pay to apply. You should also NEVER have to pay to buy anything which they then pay you back for later. NEVER PAY FOR ANYTHING! Also always verify you're actually talking to the company in the job post and not an imposter. Scams in TEFL are rampant, be careful!
