Older teachers should look to the shopping mall schools

Postbox letter from John

I know people who are 60 years old and over working in shopping malls in Nonthaburi. As long as you look presentable and can deliver classes they don't care too much about age.


Age - the TEFL killer disease sweeping Thailand

I'm confused as to the type of teacher that schools want.

Perhaps it’s not a teacher that schools are looking for, but clowns masquerading as entertainers? Any school choosing a 22-year old party animal will produce disappointed.


Are the sixty and over set out of luck as far as teaching?

Postbox letter from Fred Azbell, Chonburi, Thailand

Now I am retired in Thailand. I am 69 and still seem to have all my marbles. Are there ANY options, even part time to teach and earn a few hundred baht for incidentals?


First impressions count!

Postbox letter from Johnnie

Perhaps prospective employees should concentrate more on that first email, which might result in fewer rejections.


A journey into the over 60's TEFL graveyard

Postbox letter from John V (Thailand)

When it happened, it occurred at the speed of light. Having lost its contract with the local education authority, my company and I parted on amicable terms and moreover, in an uncharacteristic display of Chinese efficiency, within one week I found myself on a flight from Northern China back to Thailand.


Will I find work in Thailand?

Is there a definitive answer to this incredibly common question?

I wish I could look at the main scenarios, the reasons teachers ask if they will find work in Thailand, and give everyone a straight "yes, you will" or "no, you won't" answer. But unfortunately it's nowhere near that straightforward.

The dreaded demo lesson

How to make sure your demo lesson goes as smoothly as possible

Now that the busy hiring season is almost upon us, many schools will be asking potential teachers for a demo lesson. Don't panic. Let them know who the professional is.


Power resume!

When you put your resume in front of an employer, you are the product.

Whether your resume is scanned for six or sixteen seconds, you've got precious time to make an impression. Power resumes that work are effective because, as marketing brochures, they spark an interest in a particular product - you!
