I've been teaching science classes in high schools for the past few years, so I am a little out of touch with the ESL market in Bangkok. I am starting a MA program this month and I want to find a part-time position teaching ESL to adults. I think that continuing with a full-time job would just be too much of a demand on my schedule.
I am wanting to take a break from teaching kids. I would like to work for a language center if possible. Are there any places in Bangkok that primarily teach adult learners? I have worked at Berlitz but I seemed to always get the kids classes. I have a TEFL and I have been teaching for more than 9 years.
Thanks for any suggestions.
might be your teaching style
With adults you can't really write a curriculum or stick to a syllabus. Every adult will be at a different level everyone will have different reasons and interests in learning.
So the key is to reallt get to know your students.
and go from there
Good luck :-)
Also a good book helps. I use Interchange most of the time. Theres a lot of material you can use to keep a multi-level class interesting for the students.
Actually I am very familiar with interchange. Wouldn't mind it at all if I could find a position that uses it.
Basically I was really kind of hoping to get a few leads as to where to apply for adult ESL teaching positions. I thought that Wall Street only dealt with adult students. Is that correct? Are there other places that are similar?
^No, there are a lot of lilttler schools that are privately run . You just have to hit the streets and the internet to find them.

What are the chances of actually getting a job at AUA provided you have the credentials?
Also what are Wall St like?
Should you get paid more if you teach english and maths and science?
