Careers: ESL Teachers (with international travels)

Using Greenwood's award-winning, self-studying, multimedia materials, teachers can minimize repetitive chores and consequently spend more time with students for additional guidance and feedback.

Every qualified ESL teacher enjoys a competitive compensation package which includes paid medical insurance, paid travel visa, paid vacation, short-term travel-settlement assistance, living allowance during an overseas assignment, performance bonus, and ongoing professional development. Salary is based on relevant experiences.

In addition, Greenwood ESL teachers gain exclusive experience in ESL multimedia contents delivery, experience in creating innovative educational activities, plus the satisfaction in contributing to the continual improvement of a leading-edge, blended face-to-face / self-study-via-software mix of teaching methodology.


You are an enthusiastic teacher. You thrive not only on being with people from foreign cultures but also on participating in the dynamic world of a hybrid classroom / self-study-thru-software learning environment.

You are a leader. You are outgoing and very adaptive, and understand that life overseas in another culture may be drastically different from what it is in Canada. You are open-minded, and see challenges as experiences and opportunities to show your leadership quality.

As every teacher will be representing Canada while overseas, you are expected to be knowledgeable about Canada's geography, its economy, its political system, and its people. You will be viewed as a role model in sharing many of the values of Canada such as environmental protection, humanitarianism, and volunteerism.

You are expected to be an English native speaker with a university degree plus a formal TEFL/TESL qualification such as the Vancouver Community College TESOL Diploma, or a formal education degree focusing on ESL or CALL (Computer-Aided Language Learning). Ideally you also have had some teaching experiences, and previous experience of living abroad.

You are computer literate and willing to continuously learn. You are comfortable in using email, a web browser and a word processor (such as Microsoft Word). You can touch type at 40 wpm. You are expected to be familiar with the Greenwood e-learning materials so that you can guide students with their homework.


(1) Provide "traditional" face-to-face classroom ESL instruction, and (2) guide students to the use of Greenwood self-study multimedia materials as homework.

Working hours will usually be between 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, and involve morning and afternoon classes, 5 days per week. You are expected to be in the host school for 40 hours a week of which up to 25-30 are contact teaching hours.

Greenwood teachers are leaders in their fields and are expected to initiate innovative blended learning activities for their students.
