Although teacher responsibilities have minor variations from school to school, most employers in Korea will require the same commitments and obligations from their overseas ESL staff.
Class Preparation (Teacher Prep Time Explained)
Preparing for your classes in Korea is a must. All schools (private, public and international) will require their teachers to commit no less than 45 – 60 minutes of class preparation time each day. During this period you’ll be expected to organize your books, make photo copies, gather audio equipment, develop quizzes, etc. It’s ‘teacher stuff’ and there is no way to avoid this responsibility. Failing to prepare for your classes will usually result in a warning from your school manager.
