General » Still Seraching for ESL Teaching Job!
Hi my name is Carmelita, I have done the Professional TESOL 600 hr. diploma course. I am still currently looking for a ESL Teaching job. So far my experience in trying to find an ESL job has been interesting. Anyhow ideally I would like to be in Japan but it seems that my age and having not a degree sustains me, however I did go to college. I am 32 years of age, and I do have a very worked ethical professional background within the Fashion Industry. I am open to other countries. If any leads please let me know. TY

General » Non-native speaker ESL Teacher Preferred
I worked at Mianzhu Experimental Middle School for 2 years but on September 2014 requested my employer-agency for a transfer to a high school.

The said school did not like the replacement(s) sent by the agency to them and now they are asking me for help to find my replacement. I can't get back there because I am still on contract till February 2016 at another institution.

Now I need to find a teacher:
- who may not be experienced but not necessarily very young
- a degree is required because Sichuan Province only issues work permit to degree holders
- IMPORTANT: must be approachable and friendly toward the admin and fellow teachers.
-IMPORTANT: must have genuine love for teaching and for the children's well-being.
-IMPORTANT: must not be teaching solely 'for the business' but one who understands that for the good of the children, are willing to make little sacrifices like talking and chatting and exchange pleasantries with the students fore or after class.

The school:

Located at a small town about the size of Ottawa
Clean air because it is not a manufacturing town
Cool air because of high mountains 20 kms away
A farm and orchard-land in the heart of Sichuan Province to farm fresh vegetables and tree-ripened fruits abound

School provides furnished accommodation including kitchen
Apartment is walking distance to school
Admin and fellow teachers a bit shy but extremely friendly
Easy schedule of only 14 classes per week (45 minutes each)
Very helpful teacher who coordinates with foreign teacher
An hour away from capital city of Chengdu
Opportunities for part-time classes
Choice of getting Working Visa before coming to China (a bit lengthy process) OR come with Tourist Visa then obtain Chinese Working Visa in Hong Kong or any other nearby Asian city like Singapore or Bangkok or Manila or Jakarta...

I have been looking through the job postings for the last couple days, and I haven't seen any that are looking for inexperienced teachers. Every position seems to requires a degree or teaching experience. Is there really jobs out there for someone who has never done this before, and is completely inexperienced?
General » Transfer credits from TESOL certification to actual degree
Hello, I recently graduated with Kathy Ezard, and she mentionned a possibility for me to transfer the Tesol certification (as a elective course) to my actual degree, has anyone done that before?

If so, please guide me through the process. I'm at loss now!
Thanks! :D

I thought that teaching English anywhere in the EU pretty much required at least a BA at the minimum??

General » Italy Course
Hi Meaghan! I haven't graduated yet but I have my sights set on Italy as well. Based on the research I've done, it's fairly easy to find job postings doing a simple search however sponsorship of your Visa may inhibit you from finding the ideal opportunity quickly. I am fortunate enough to have been born to an Italian citizen so I'll be able to circumvent this issue easily but myy advice to you would be to do a little research everyday to see whats out there and reach out and make as many connections as possible to seek opportunity, advice, suggestions, etc. from people there currently working in ESL education. My understanding is that many schools prefer to meet you in person prior to hiring but I'm still trying to figure it myself...

I may just be stating the obvious here but I hope it helps and I wish you much luck!
