Additional assistance will be given to help the new teacher become familiar with the texts and teaching materials we have available.
Our major requirement is enthusiasm for teaching and a willingness to learn new ideas.
A valid International Driver’s License is a necessity as some driving to outside classes will be required. The teacher will have his/her own car for business use and it will be available for their private use too.
