For English Educators - Job Description

Our instructors teach at both the Junior and Senior high level to a curriculum established by our teachers and the school, teaching in a variety of methods to classes of about 20 in size.

ELT Source instructors compose and administer their own lessons and exams according to the curriculum, and evaluate each student’s performance carefully.

A Day in the Life of an ELT Source Instructor

  • Your day starts at 8:30 a.m. at the morning staff meeting.
  • Classes begin at 8:50 a.m. and there are four 50 minute classes in the morning and three 50 minute classes in the afternoon with a 40 minute lunch break at 12:50 p.m.
  • Even though there are 7 periods a day it is unlikely that you will teach all 7 periods on any given day as your schedule will be no more than twenty 50 minute classes per week.
  • Your teaching schedule will be decided at the start of each school year and will not change for that school year.
  • You may have some heavy days with 5 classes and light days with only 1 or 2 classes.
  • After each class, there may be some marking of students’ worksheets, and depending on the time of year you will write 3 or 5 examinations that you will also mark. Eventually, you will enter the final grades into the schools’ system.
  • Your day is done when the 5 o’clock bell goes and you go home for the evening.
  • You may decide to join a school club and you may not.
  • Holidays are extensive with nearly 3 months of the year off, with a month long summer vacation. All holidays, we are proud to say, are fully paid.
  • There are a number of staff get-togethers outside of school that you may choose to participate in as well.
  • Like most jobs, each day will bring you a couple of laughs but there may be the irregular frustrating moment as well. At the end of the year; however, you will find the positive moments will far outweigh the negative ones.
