The 'right teacher' means the only teacher available

Postbox letter from Mike

Tread carefully when applying for teaching jobs

Postbox letter from Jack

While I don’t blame the schools, I would think twice before accepting a position with schools at the moment.


Getting a job interview - part 1

The pros and cons of four different approaches

I was confident that emailing my resume and following up with a phone call was the way to go. Several days later, not a single school could locate my e-mail.


Thank you for the kind words and encouragement

Postbox letter from Old Bloke, Bangkok

I’ve done a little research and come up with some example salaries in different regions in Thailand. Whilst this isn’t an exact science it should give a good guide of potential earnings

Two types of language teacher

Postbox letter from Mark N.

Thai employers simply don't care about your bits of paper - except for the one that says you have a bona fide degree.
