We are a small language center about to open in Tehuacan, Puebla. Our aim is to provide quality lessons at an affordable price in an attempt to help make education more achievable for the wider public. Our students do not pay a sign-up fee and do not need to purchase books, instead, we encourage them to bring their devices to class. This means that the teachers are able to assign research tasks and present lessons utilizing online resources. We have an online platform where students can communicate with each other and their teacher and the teacher can upload; resources, lesson plans, homework, grades, etc.
We offer accommodation, Spanish lessons and $100MXN per teaching hour (teachers will need to complete some lesson prep, but we have tried to minimalize this as much as possible).
We have professional Spanish lessons for our teachers and there is a huge opportunity to practice Spanish because most people in this area do not speak English. There is the opportunity to see how local companies work - this will be a plus for people with an interest in international business or anyone wishing to assimilate into the Mexican culture. We also arrange cultural trips and can provide a written reference and certificate recognizing your services upon completion of one semester.
We require teachers to present lessons to our students. Lessons are usually 1 hour and the teacher can expect to teach up to five hours a day. We have a syllabus for you to follow and folders full of resources, the teacher can check the syllabus to see what they should be teaching that week and then find the resources they wish to use. You can have as much freedom in organizing your lessons as you like and we are available to help with your lesson planning.
The classes are small and will not exceed 8 students.
Host family or share house (own bedroom). This is highly dependant on the preference of the workawayer. The hosts will usually do all of the cooking, but you have access to the kitchen for whatever you need.
Classes run from Monday - Friday and it is likely that you would have either a morning or afternoon schedule. This means that you are available to travel on the weekends and enjoy many of the great magic towns that are nearby.
