* Reimbursement for return air tickets (1/3 at the beginning of the contract, 1/3 in the middle, 1/3 at the end);
* Visa costs reimbursement (upon arrival);
* Work visa support (this means we will take care of altering your initial visa to a work visa–We do not want you to work illegally!);
* Paid holiday time is accrued as follows: 17 days per six months of work (plus Russian public holidays). Be aware: This holiday time can only be used after six months on contract, and specific dates should be agreed upon with the academic director;
* Health insurance provided;
* We will assure you are legally registered; and
* Airport pick-up.
* Professional in manner and lesson preparation (for instance, teachers are expected to be at the school 30 minutes before their lessons);
* Native speaker (USA(more preferable), UK, Ireland, South Africa, Canada, New Zealand, Australia);
* Bachelor’s degree + TEFL Certification;
* Post-TEFL Certification experience of at least one year highly preferred;
* Experience teaching a range of ages and English language skills (you probably won’t teach children under 11 or 12 years-old, but you will likely teach teens and adults);
* Experience with business English and exams (particularly IELTS/TOEFL);
* Experience working/living in Russia is highly preferred;
* Russian language skills not required, but highly recommended;
* Highly preferred: Flexibility and an open mind. Russia is a unique country with singular qualities; things change, things can take a long to be completed, and so forth. In addition, the nature of our school is such that schedules can change. If you are wary of these two realities: Please do not apply.
Some notes: We will do our best to avoid split shifts for our teachers; they might be a necessity at times, however. Weekend activities (such as a Saturday speaking club, and open house, or a school party) are required for teachers, but they are paid (either count against hours or will be paid as extra hours).
