Wanted-qualified Teacher To Tutor In Samui For 4mths


Recommended Posts

Whata bunch of 'know it all's' and we are better and deserve <deleted> loads more than that.

You know what, any backpacker that happens to be a teacher would probably jump at the chance.

Work permit, yeah good one.

Go put this ad up on lonely planet or some such other websites that is not full of up em self people. If you were in Bkk for some time prior to samui, you could probably place ads in Kao san rd area and get heaps of people wanting it.

Negative bunch aren't they??

You might well get a reply if you want a young grad who wants an au pair type position.

I think you will also do better if you advertise on another web site (ajarn.com or an au pair site)away from the jaded old gits on Thai Visa.....most of them haven't got 2 setangs to rub together anyhoo

If you have a "guest" staying at your house, who's to know about the work situation? A grey area a best I would think.

this jaded old Thaivisa git isnt even going to do spelchek. I dare the OP to post that ad on the open forum on ajarn - she;ll get crucified by most posters

Learn to read you wanna be 'know it all' before you write something stupid like that. The OP wants a qualified teacher, qualified to teach several subjects, not any old backpacker that can teach. That's why we were saying the salary is way too low. But you are right, any backpacker who can teach would most likely jump at that offer, but a backpacker and a qualified teacher who can teach several subjects are two different things. Putting an ad up at Khao San for a qualified teacher who will accept that offer LOL. Go back to sleep...............

in this context, qualified means you can teach history, ninth form science, quadratic equations, advanced grammar, how to write an advanced essay, simple molecular biology, Shakespeare, ee cummings, etc., off the top of your head, in terms the student understands,....

Teacher required to accompany warm, vibrant british family to (probably) Samui from April-end July. Responsibilities would include teaching one 10 year old (little git and a handful, so any academic progress unexpected and welcomed!) and preparing a 14 year old for forthcoming GCSEs (maths, science, English etc). Remuneration will include all travel and normal living expenses, along with a very good cash wage . You will be joining us on an extended holiday in a large, luxury house/apartment with a maid. Only expect 25-30 hours teaching per week, and mucking-in elsewhere. Would prefer someone with science/maths experience/degree. A personality would also be an attractive asset and a sporty nature would help you jell with the lads, as well as with mum-n-dad. The lads will resume their normal academic timetable in September. Please send a CV to: Kath Parsons.

I would like the job. Can I bring my Wife and her family with me? Mum, Dad, four aunties, 2 brothers,3 sisters and 3 Dogs. Maybe Nan and Grandad will come later once they harvest the rubber trees? You wont have to pay for there airfare as they all have skateboards.

See you in April.

So then are you claiming that all teachers are qualified teachers? Is the sky red? If you are suggesting that if someone happens to be X then they are also a qualified X, you obviosuly lack life experience. I'm sure if you went into many of the schools around Thailand and checked teachers credentials that you would find many illegal teachers and people who are unqualified to teach. A lot of the backpackers from Khao San apply for teaching jobs without any qualifications, but once they get the job, does that make them qualified? I don't think so. According to you it dose................. Why bother studying to get qualifications to be a teacher if I will automatically become a qualified teacher once I land a teaching job? See you all tomorrow, I'm returning to Thailand to teach whith the knowledge that being a teacher also makes me a qualified teacher.

which goes to show you that some teachers are even more qualified than others. Don't forget the ten year old git; you have to teach him everything, pedagogically correctly. I suspect the OP does not know what a qualified teacher is. Would 100,000 baht per month, plus food and lodging, be enough?

What a laugh you've all given me!! Thank god I have a good old fashioned, british sense of humour, which some of you lack! Thank you all for your suggestions and sarcastic replies, they were great.

I just want to clear up a few things first.

The wage was just a starting point and obviously negiotable (something you thai's are normally good at!).

The 'little git' is just an expression for a little rascal. Hes a normal boy!

The idea of a room in our house was only an thought but we are certainly not looking for a babysitter.

My partner is a Doctor and will be working, we are definately not a 'Brits on tour' family.

And lastly, most of the teaching material will be provided by their current teachers.

I fully understand the job would only appeal to a handful of people but some of you guys are soooo serious.

Chill out and be happy!!! :o

I will speak slowly for you. There are many teachers teaching in Thailand. There are many un-qualified teachers teaching in Thailand. Therefore, not all teachers that are teaching in Thailand are qualified. Just because you are or claim to be a teacher, doesn't mean that you're a qualified teacher. The OP wants a qualified teacher. A backpackpacker who can teach and claims to be a teacher doesn't necessarily mean that they are a qualified teacher. Thats all. A lot of fraudsters in Thailand, which is the norm there anyway :o

I know......I know!! Looking through 4 CV's and 3 of them are definately qualified (None are thai). They are all just looking for a year off to travel. Thank you again though, I appreciate it!
