First and foremost, teaching is at the heart of what we do. Our organization exists to create the best educational experience and learning outcomes for our students. Aside from office staff, everyone teaches in some capacity to stay connected with our students and the greater purpose of our organization. This includes the founder & CEO, management, and others who have taken on operational responsibilities.
We specialize in teaching returnee and bicultural children advanced English reading, writing, and speaking skills. Students primarily join classes based on age so they can learn and communicate with their peers. Our goal is not simply to maintain students' English levels but to raise them. We maintain a small student-to-teacher ratio in the classroom. Outside of the classroom, students develop friendships and bonds with other students who share similar backgrounds. All KA campuses are full English-speaking environments.
Teaching Specialists guide students through our original English Language Arts curriculum. These materials are designed for English speakers and include sources such as short stories, novel excerpts, news articles, poetry, media, etc. Through working with the same students for several years, teachers are rewarded by seeing students overcome challenges and achieve their goals.
We place great importance on training and ongoing professional development. Our training programs aim to help new teachers embody our educational philosophies, learn about our in-house curriculum, and become familiar with the unique challenges and opportunities of teaching returnee students.
Who we are looking for:
Applicants must have a strong desire to teach. The strongest candidates also have an interest in education, literature, and personal growth.
There are no minimum requirements for years of teaching experience, but we do favor applicants who have classroom experience, particularly with teaching kindergarten, elementary school students, and advanced test prep.
Of course, applicants must have strong interpersonal skills and be willing to learn and grow in a multicultural, multigenerational environment.
We strongly prefer applicants who are willing to make multi-year commitments. We find this allows students to become familiar with their teachers and for teachers to grow with us as educators.
