Program Overview:

Teach English In South Korea With GeoVisions

Why is there a placement fee?

Over the years we have met teachers who have had horrible experiences when they think they are going into a fantastic overseas teaching job only to find out they are not going to a real school, but a corporate school and not a true International school.  They have been caught in a signed contract without having visited the school or met the administrators.  Where do they turn without a support team who's only job is to look out for you?

At GeoVisions, we have pre-screened the school and the position and in most cases, we have placed teachers at that school before.  We make sure you're being paid the highest salary possible.  We help you with your formal documents and we make sure your new school is ready to receive you.

Will Schools Hire Teachers That Are Age 40 Or Older?

Most schools in Korea place the upper age limit for visiting teachers at 45, but there may be a subtle age bias towards younger teachers.  However, if you are active, vibrant, energetic and a creative educator wholoves being around young people, you will be able to secure a job.

This is a full time teaching position.

You may apply at anytime during the calendar year and we accept applications each month throughout the calendar year.  We have hundreds of great paying full time teaching jobs in Korea with full benefits.

This is a paid position with a minimum salary of $20,000 US per year.  Experienced teachers can earn $27,000 US and have housing provided.  Most host institutions provide comfortable accommodations.  You will also receive round trip air transportation.  It is not rare to receive a $2,000 end of contract bonus.

As a native speaker you can become an asset to educational establishments by improving the standard of English in Korea. Teaching can be an amazing opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others, while experiencing the rich culture of the Eastern world.

Placements for the Teach in Korea program are currently in the country's private schools.  This is a paid position with an annual salary of US$21,000-$27,000 based on a 30 hours per week (6 hours/week). Free airfare (may be purchased or reimbursed depending on the school), free housing, paid holidays, and more!
