Our English teachers enjoy the following benefits:
*A monthly gross salary of approximately $750-850 that corresponds to 20-24 hours per week of teaching and/or completing projects. This is a Costa Rican wage for working part-time. This amount is enough to pay for food, entertainment and some travel on a budget.
*Assistance with opening a local bank account.
*Paid initial training, a free mentor program for new teachers, and ongoing support and training throughout the year.
*Sundays and Mondays are free: teachers work Tuesday through Saturday, teaching the same group courses each week with some possible variations of private classes.
*English teachers have access to weekly 1-hour free Spanish group classes for teachers and/or our Immersion Spanish courses (20 hours of class in one week).
*Several opportunities each week to volunteer in the community and make a difference. One such opportunity is Club A, a non-profit that helps underprivileged kids in a neighborhood just outside of Liberia. See more information here.
*Living in Guanacaste where it is always sunny and warm. We do not receive nearly the amount of rainfall as other parts of Costa Rica. Gorgeous beaches are accessible by public buses and only 40-90 minutes away. Liberia is not a touristy town, so you will practice your Spanish and integrate with the locals. You can walk everywhere, but having a bike is helpful. The international airport is 10 minutes outside of town.
