E BO Young Daejeon, Dunsan-Dong Branch is a Great School
4 years ago.
Institute Review
I worked at the EBY Talking Club, Daejeon, Dunsan-Dong branch from May 2012 - December 2013. My initial contract was for 1 year, but I extended it for 7 extra months after my first contract ended. The director Lee KI-ri was more than happy to keep me on. The director Lee Ki-Ri, her sister Stella and the director's husband who drives the school bus are all very open EBY is an afternoon academy, which means you have the whole morning to do other things. My working hours were 2pm-9pm. Somedays I finished at 8pm or even earlier. The director of EBY Dunsan Dong branch has 2 academies on the same floor. Lee Ki-Ri manages the Math academy and her sister Stella manages the English (EBY) side. Stella was an amazing support. I am still in contact with her. Stella taught afternoon kindergarten and elementary classes and Maria teacher taught middle school and high school classes in the evening. Both Stella and Maria teachers were supportive. I never got a huge complain from any of them for me, just minors. I had an amazing time working at this school. In the beginning I had a bit of difficulty adjusting with the kids but by the end of the month I had created a great bond with majority of the kids in the school. There were some hard cases, too. It's not easy to please all the kids. I was given full control over my classes. There weren't many deadlines to meet.
Overall a great school.
The pros
- Pay was always on time
- Apartment is located right in the heart of the city (5 Minutes walk away from the school)
- Great benefits
- Great Boss
- Very great supportive Korean colleagues
- You get your own classroom
- 6-7 classes (Max 6 pupil per class) - sometimes 5 classes
- Full control over my classes (full support from Director herself and other teachers)
- If any of the classes got cancelled I was able to leave work early. Never stayed late, only if I had some work to finish.
The cons
- I was the only foreign teacher is the whole academy.
