We have received a lot of emails from people asking us how to become a teacher in Korea. Where can they find jobs teaching English? What kind of teaching job should they get? It’s a complicated process at times, with a lot of documents that need to be signed, stamped, and delivered. However, before you get to that process, you need to make two important decisions:
1) Do you want to teach at a public school or private tutoring school
2) What recruiter do you want to use to get you to Korea
In this video, we’ll give you our honest opinions and experiences with public and private schools. Sure, not everyone will agree with this, since everyone has different experiences, but we think this is the safest bet for having a successful stint (or career!) as an English teacher in Korea. As for us, we both work in public schools with Gepik (The Gyeonggi Board of Education), and we love it!
