ABOUT OUR SCHOOL
Uniworld is a unique English-language hagwon (an after school enrichment academy). Unlike other schools, Uniworld focuses on an integrated individualized curriculum (combining computer programs with one-on-one classroom interaction to support student development). This approach, combined with a Korean assistant teacher in class, makes teaching here more rewarding than many conventional teaching positions. Rather than leading whole-group instruction, these positions require that you act alternately as a talker, mentor, coach, and tutor. Most of our students are between the ages of 8 and 15, though some can be as young as 6 or as old as 18. You should enjoy working with children of all ages and developing positive relationships with every student.
Uniworld understands the challenges of teaching and living in an unfamiliar culture. Uniworld works hard to ensure the satisfaction of the foreign teacher by assisting with the transition from the home country, by being transparent about the terms and conditions of employment, and by supporting teachers in the classroom with Korean staff. It is a highly collaborative and ever-adaptive environment as we explore new ways to teach ESL that excite and engage our students (and teachers!). We prefer teachers who are highly committed to their profession and looking for a creative space to grow with their students.
