English Teacher at a private academy in Sokcho, Gangwon-do


Job Ad Type: 

Hello everyone!

I’ve been an English teacher for the past 5 years in South Korea, and I’m looking for my replacement as I’ll be finishing my contract in June.

We are ideally looking for an American, Canadian, or British female.

This job includes full classroom autonomy of small classes of two to 12 students. The job hours are from 2-8 p.m. at the latest. You’ll also never be required to work in the mornings or on weekends.

The director is incredibly friendly and very open to new ideas and suggestions, and the students are so much fun. Because it’s a private English academy, I’ve found that students are overall a bit more diligent compared to public school.

Housing is also provided (2 bedrooms 1 bath, furnished, AC, underfloor heating) and is in a great location of town. It’s a 10 minute walk to work, grocery stores, cafes, library, gym, restaurants, small hiking areas, and just a 20 minute walk to the beach.

Seoraksan National Park is just 20 minute bus/taxi ride away and is full of some of the most beautiful mountains for hiking.

There is also a small but wonderful community of other English teachers and regular monthly community events.


Academy Name: A.P. English

Location: Sokcho-si, Gangwon-do, South Korea (mountains, beaches, a 3 hour bus ride to/from Seoul)

Grades: Elementary, Middle, and High school students (high school students are usually only 2 or 3 times a week)

Hours: Monday - Friday 2pm-8pm (at the latest)

Salary: 2 million won/month

Provided: housing, health insurance, flights, pension

Vacation: 5 days summer/5 days winter plus all national holidays

Visa: the academy will sponsor an E-2 Visa

Start date: mid to late June

Knowledge of Korean is not required, but definitely helpful for navigating around town or traveling. However many English teachers have done just fine with just a basic Korean level that they learned after arriving.

If you are interested or have any questions, please send your application (CV or resume and a cover letter) to the contact provided.
