The working week is 40 hours, which includes teaching 25 teaching hours. Classes are mostly small in size and have teaching materials prepared for you. Office duties are minimal; we don't spend time correcting tests or homework or doing much lesson planning in the office.
All Private Classes have lesson plans already made for them, which makes it easier to prepare - teachers just have to review the lesson plan before class and review any vocabulary or grammar structures they are not familiar with. Preparation for a Social Club may take a bit of time, however, especially if it's a topic of the teacher's choosing and he or she needs to create the lesson plan and material.
Occasionally another member of our staff will need a teacher to perform a level test for a student, or a student will need a teacher to correct grammar of a presentation they're preparing for presentation class.
