CREO Offline Elementary Program

Position Details: 

  • School: Creo English Academy
  • location: Seoul: Daechi, Hanam, Songpa
  • Start Date: 2023 & 2024
  • Normal Schedule set up: 7 hr shift (1:30 pm prep / 2:30-8:30 pm class time)

For these CREO positions, we are looking for both English-speaking teachers and Bilingual teachers. CREO teachers have their classrooms and typically teach around 80 students per week. Average class sizes are 10-12 students and students are divided by their age and proficiency level, ensuring that the teacher isn't juggling multiple leveled students within 1 class. We have a curriculum but there is plenty of space for teacher creativity and input into the lesson they teach, so you aren't an automaton going through pages of a book. Our teachers share a platform across campuses to contribute the materials they come up with for their lessons, which gives teachers a chance to input but also cuts down on workload, as we can all benefit from each contribution.

Immersive Elementary Education

CREO is an after-school academy that specializes in immersive English education for students from first through sixth grade. We have been rapidly expanding and currently have campuses in Daechi and Songpa, with a third one just opened in Hanam. At CREO, we provide our teachers with individual classrooms, allowing them to create unique and engaging learning environments for our students.

Our teaching model is what we call 'the Circular System' which is a more integrated approach to language acquisition. Fluent English speakers pick up the language with familiarity with the vocabulary they hear and see used around them. Children see and hear their mothers and fathers, their siblings and relatives and neighbors using language and they pick up on that and start to reciprocate. We aim at replicating this natural process. Instead of treating speaking, listening, reading, and writing as separate entities, using different books and topics for each, and having students memorize vocabulary, which is what so many academies do, we integrate them using one topic. Our Korean teachers study the topic first with our students (they teach in English), and they focus on the receptive side - listening reading, and grammar. The students become familiar with the meaning and pattern of usage. Our teachers focus on the productive side of speaking and writing - getting students to apply what they previously understood only in theory. We use a Switch Teaching method, which involves students switching teachers and classrooms halfway through their lesson, so both our Korean teachers and our other teachers are homeroom teachers. This exposes them to two different teaching styles and allows them to develop a more natural and holistic approach to the English language. Our curriculum is designed to expand our students' English abilities and help them gain language proficiency. It's less about helping them survive as a tourist and more about them being confident and comfortable with the English language. 

We are committed to providing a high-quality education to our students, with a focus on fostering a love of learning and developing English proficiency. We believe that our innovative teaching model, dedicated teachers, and immersive curriculum set us apart from other English academies and provide our students with the best possible learning experience.
