Today’s interview features Taylor, an RTT teacher who arrived in South Korea in Feb 2020. Learn about teaching in Daejeon, South Korea during COVID-19.
Reach To Teach has compiled four common and simple rookie teaching mistakes for new EPIK teachers to watch out for in South Korea.
We would like to welcome our new Reach To Teach teachers in South Korea for EPIK Orientation Spring 2017. Thank you for choosing to work with us!
Winter vacation in Korea is almost upon us. It’s finally the last week of classes! As I write this, I am breathing a long sigh of relief. I appreciate my job and the energetic children I work with, but the time has now come when I’m in desperate need of a break.
As another year in Korea approaches, I have begun to reflect on the differences I am faced with and changes I have made during my time as an EPIK teacher in South Korea.
An English camp in Korea is set up for students to attend during the summer months when they have more free time from their regular schools. Not all EPIK teachers are asked to teach in one of these but I was and I loved it.
School variety is something I am used to, I was first informed I would be teaching at two schools in Daejeon the last day of my EPIK orientation. I was excited because I would have a split schedule and experience in a number of different school settings.
Contract renewal in Korea can be a daunting event as you won’t know if they want you for a second year until they ask. This is something I experienced recently as I came to the end of my first year with EPIK.
