Minimum requirements for teaching at Da Vinci Language Academy:
• You must be a native English speaker with a valid passport from the USA or Canada. Due to the amount of phonics work we do with young learners we can only hire teachers with standard North American pronunciation.
• The teacher must complete all steps required by Korean law to obtain a teaching visa. This includes submitting all documents and attending consulate interviews. For U.S. citizens, a federal background check from the FBI is required. It’s important that candidates start collecting these documents as soon as possible in order to secure a position for the desired start date. The FBI estimates as much as 12 weeks to complete a Federal background check.
• You must be able to complete and pass a background check for criminal history in your home country in accordance with Korean Law.
• You must pass health screening mandated by Korean immigration. Be advised this screening includes drug testing. Korea has a zero tolerance policy for any kind of drug use. Marijuana is considered a serious drug in Korea, testing positive for marijuana would disqualify any applicant from teaching.
