Job Description

Looking for a part-time professional English Language Arts teacher-recent American college graduate preferred

English Vitamin is a small and innovative English school committed to providing high-quality English language arts education to students from elementary to middle school. Our students go on to overseas high schools such as United World College in Canada and Costa Rica or boarding schools in the United States.


Unlike traditional cram schools, we are unique in that we focus on real English communication through exposure to native materials. Our students range from a first grader who dreams of exploring space as an astronaut, to a fifth grader who'd like to design spaces as an architect; our interaction with students is personal, and we invest in their diverse interests. Our recent graduates are at Princeton University majoring in Economics, at UWC,(United World College) studying high school IB program in Costa Rica, and at Baltic Opera Ballet Company performing ballet in Poland. They are living their best lives.

We have an amazing group of students and parents. Children are great at focusing on both studying hard and playing hard and they enjoy our classes. Their parents are truly supportive, appreciative, and committed to their children's education. They always send us thank-you notes, letters, and bring in some goodies to show their appreciation. They go over their children's homework with them when the kids need some assistance and help them to fully become independent learners.

Our school vision is to enable all children to reach their potential. We provide a personalized, highly individual education for our students. We provide a rock solid foundation of English Language Arts skills so that when they are accepted to top schools around the world, they will have the abilities to enjoy and focus on the rigorous academics in high school and college and beyond. Intellectual training is essential to succeed in our globally developed culture. Material achievements are necessary to cover the basics of a good life, but we understand the importance of what we can’t see, those intangibles such as happiness, building character and finding your own philosophy, reach a unique way of expressing yourself, and find peace in mind in everyday life.

At English Vitamin, our children have numerous conversations with their teachers and peers. They will go through a self-discovery process during class and outside of class and gradually they find what they love and why they want to delve into a particular interest. We have lots of open-minded and honest dialogues and ask students to write stories and essays so that they can really start visualizing their dreams in their heads and hearts. All of these layers of focused experiences will teach them that life is something they can design and create by themselves.

We believe that children will excel naturally when they are given a safe and loving environment, and provided the right guidance for them to be who they are. Our students are wonderful so we naturally give our love and we always believe in them. We work closely with the loving and responsible mothers and their children. Our students know that they are loved and cared for.
