Start 2018 in amazing Peru!Extreme Learning Centers
· Teach English in Peru
· Full Time position
Extreme Learning Centers (ELC), with over 12 years in Peru, is looking for qualified native English speaking TEFL/TESOL/CELTA certified teachers. Experience is always great, but not a requirement for mature and dedicated teachers. Due to resent growth, we need four more teachers beginning February 1st, 2018. We also hire throughout the year as needed.
Arequipa is a beautiful city high up on the western slope of the Andes Mountains. We have a moderate Mediterranean-style climate, with sunshine over 310 days per year. We are a one hour flight from Lima and Cusco. The city center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with an amazingly beautiful main square.
ELC has two locations in Arequipa, serving approximately 1,000 students of English. We provide our teachers with a fully developed curriculum, teacher guides, exams and extra materials. We use a student-centered approach in which student production of language is emphasized. Each monthly cycle lasts for 18 days (Monday through Friday) and 4 Saturdays for Kid’s classes. Adult classes range from 4 to 16 students (average class size is 10), each class lasting two hours, with a 10 minute break in the middle). Teachers teach 3 groups of adult each month. We also provide observations and feedback for our teachers so that all of us can continue to grow professionally.
Peru is a developing nation, so our students cannot afford to pay high prices for classes. Therefore, we are unable to pay for flights or provide free housing. We do provide airport pick-up, help finding an affordable place to live and orientation training. Most teachers earn approximately $5 per hour. While this may seem low, minimum wage in Peru is approximately $1.25 per hour. So our teachers can live just fine on their wages. We ask for a minimum three month commitment, with a preference for a six month commitment.
To apply, please send your 1 to 2 page résumé to both our executive director and assistant manager.
