Institute Review
Working at TASK English Academy in Cheonan is an absolute nightmare. The owner is a control freak and micro-manager. He expects the impossible from his workers and the students. The staff and students are all constantly stressed out. The material is developmentally inappropriate, and the kids never get to have any fun or simply just be kids. The amount of time for grading and planning expected of teachers is unreasonable and impossible to achieve. The teaching hours are exhausting as there aren't any actual breaks. The owner has a tendency to be completely unprofessional and inappropriate towards his staff. He has an anger problem and can be scary at times. This is not a pleasant work environment to be a part of, and the students suffer the most.
The pros
The pay is higher than most institutes (but you must put in an excessive amount of work for it)
The location is nice
The cons
The owner micro-manages everything and complains if teachers can't meet his unreasonable expectations
The work hours are long and tiring with no real breaks
The kids are stressed out and unhappy because the material is not appropriate for their ages, levels, culture, and abilities
There is never enough time to complete all the tasks expected of you
Advice to Management
Stop micro-managing your staff and let them have some say in how the material should be taught. Don't create such a rigid schedule that is difficult to teach and even more difficult for students to learn under. Remember, you are a HAGWON, not a school. Outside of your academy, the students have other work they must complete. They need more time to learn the material and cannot be force fed it. Respect your staff and treat them like humans instead of s*a*e robots. Humans make mistakes. Humans get sick. Humans forget. Try to be a little more understanding. Just because you pay more than other academies doesn't mean you should talk down to and disrespect your employees. And most importantly, allow your students to have some fun and be kids! Research shows that play is a huge part of learning, but there is rarely anything even remotely fun or play related occurring at TASK as it is all serious study all the time.
