Our School

Our academy is different to most in that it is foreign-owned. I am from Ireland and my wife is Korean, so we avoid the language, cultural and communication problems experienced at other schools.

We offer a great working environment. Our Korean co-teachers are bilingual, allowing easy communication and collaboration. We teach children from the age of 8 to 14 and keep class sizes small to facilitate optimum teacher-student interaction and ensure each student has the opportunity to speak during class. Our taught classes are complimented by our language lab where students practice their reading, writing and comprehension skills.

Key Responsibilities

• Develop students' language skills through teaching course books and supplementary material
• Assess students' performance and provide constructive feedback
• Work with co-teachers to ensure each class's learning needs are being met
• provide enrichment activities like songs, games, and creative-projects to create a positive, fun-filled learning environment


• Be a native English speaker from the UK, Ireland, the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, or South Africa.
• Possess a Bachelor’s degree
• Be energetic and have a genuine desire to teach children


• 1-2 years experience working with children
• Classroom teaching experience
• CELTA/TESOL/TEFL certificate
