Institute Review
I had the privilege to work here as my first job coming into Korea. After doing plenty of research and having interactions with other teachers here I realized just how lucky I was. Our director is a well traveled man who is very familiar with what it means to be a great teacher, he has a clear understanding of Western work culture as well. If there is ever any problems with any aspect of living in Korea I feel comfortable asking him for help and he will gladly oblige. He truly cares about his teachers and his students. I highly recommend this job to anyone who wants to have a great hagwon experience.
The pros
My apartment is a 5 minute walk to work, 5 minutes from Lotte Mart and is in the center of the downtown area.
The job is low stress with the majority of the day having one-on-one style lessons.

Everything about the job is highly professional.

Teaching can be flexible without a rigid curriculum. If you want changes and it's reasonable it's totally possible if you talk to the director.
The cons
If you want a big city experience, Tongyeong is not that, but it is 75 minutes from the terminal to Sasang, Busan. Nearly 5 hours to Seoul.

Some days feel long with a late finish at 10:40.

Institute Review
I have been working here for a year and I love it. The director and the Korean co-teachers are near fluent in English and are very supportive and help me with everything from classroom questions to daily living. After working in many other hogwans I appreciate the fact that they speak such good English which makes communication much easier. I find there are very few misunderstandings based on communication. The staff have helped me with everything from online shopping, visa problems and helping me to find a good doctor. My director has even personally taken time to help me talk to my landlord when my aircon broke.

They pay on time and I have never had a problem with things like pension or health insurance. My boss makes sure that all our benefits are in line with that is in the contract and what is required by law. I have no complaints and am very happy here.
