English Teaching Jobs

Post New Topic
10/16/2012 02:56 EST

I just obtained my TEFL certification and I am planning on moving to El Salvador to search for a job teaching English somewhere near El Puerto of La Libertad. I was wondering if there was any need for an English teacher and/or tutor, or even a Spanish teacher/tutor (as I have a Bachelor's degree in International Studies with a minor in Spanish).

What are the chances of finding a job in El Puerto?

I have heard from a few other expats that my best bet would be commuting to and from the capital, but I thought I'd check on here as well!

If you move to El Salvador or any other Central American country alone, with no baseline of native spouse/partner, family or a trusted friend, not some ex pat or bi lingual local you may meet in a bar or a social gathering, you will be able to pick up low paying teaching jobs easily at local 'Academies' that will hire you sans work permit, so have at least $3000 in the bank in case you fall ill as you get no medical benefits working 'black', to work full time in a bi lingual High School or International School you should be a Certified Teacher at home or teach IT Computer skills as well, asking the Institution to sponsor you for a work permit! With connections or 'cuello' family or close friend, you easily find work, cars that run, you will need one if tutoring in ES, La Libertad is a tourist town and has a small English Academy where native speakers often volunteer. If you surf, love to party the La Libertad beaches are perfect, not for urban professionals though.
