Benjamin English Club is an established Canadian-owned and operated hagwon located in Dongtan, South Korea. We focus mainly on elementary-aged students. Because of our low turnover rate, teachers build a strong relationship with each other and with their teachers over time.

Almost all of our teachers have finished at least one year, and about half have stayed on for an extra year or two.

We are adding an additional expansion position to our morning kindy classes. We are looking for an energetic, kind and patient person who enjoys teaching young children. There are Korean staff on hand to assist, but classes are not co-taught by Korean teachers.

Salary: 2.1M+ (negotiable on experience in Korea)
Daily Hours: 3 + 3 hours (about 10:00-1:00, 2:30-5:30). Lunch break is free time-- no babysitting required
Weekly Hours: max 30/week, with a good chance for some OT if wanted.
Students: hard max 8 except for special events (field trips / Christmas party, etc.)
Start: January, but can start earlier if necessary for E2 transfer.
Housing: single
Location: Dongtan

Airfare, year-end bonuses, red-day holidays, etc. are provided.


Dongtan is a planned city near Seoul. It has all new buildings, good amenities, and is missing much of the dizzying busy-ness of downtown Seoul. Near your apartment (which is very close to the hagwon) you'll find a fairly large mall (Metapolis) with a theater and nice restaurants, some small mountains good for hiking, and express buses that go straight to downtown Seoul. There are plenty of foreign teachers in Dongtan, as well as decent night-time activities: bars, clubs etc. All are within easy walking distance of your home and the hagwon. You can google Dongtan to learn more.

-You know what documents you need, have them notarized and in-hand, and have scans available ("arriving any day now" won't do it).
-You have worked in Korea already, with at least one finished contract.
-You have a balanced personality: willing to get down to work, but also able to let go and have fun; willing to entertain, but with a strong enough personality to keep a class in line. Most importantly, you should enjoy making real human connections with the children you teach. Our hagwon motto is "People teaching people," and it is important to us.
-You have a sincere interest in teaching, and in furthering your development as a teacher.
-You are available to work for a full-year contract (the potential for a multi-year relationship will be considered a plus but is not required).
-You are team-focused rather than self-focused.


Please send your CV and document scans to the address below. Applications without all document scans will not be considered. Make sure you identify what time zone you're in, as well as what time (in Korea) you are available to take a phone or Skype interview. Make sure also that your picture is recent. We want to see what the students will see-- not how cute you looked in high school. The title of your e-mail should be "NAME for Benjamin English Club, January position."
