Job description

Due to expansion we are looking for 3 teachers to come and teach in Buon Ma Thuot city, the coffee capital of Vietnam, located in Daklak province.

AMA Buon Ma Thuot has been operating for 5 years, and offers programs for preschool/kindergartners, kids, teens, and adults.

The center has over 600 students, and we need 3 teachers to come and join our existing group of 4 foreign teachers to take on the delivery of classes to our existing and new students.

You will have multiple levels to teach, from preschool, right through to university aged students.

Supported by at least 2 Vietnamese teachers for group classes (15 students maximum). We average 25 teaching hours a week (fluctuates seasonally). Can sometimes be as low as 14 hours a week, never higher than 30 (summer time).

Buon Ma Thuot (BMT) is a lovely rural capital with lots of natural beauty, and sightseeing opportunities. There are lakes, waterfalls, caves, national parks, elephants, volcanoes, and more within easy reach of the city. Local street markets are dotted throughout town, and local ethnic minorities sell their fresh produce from the very early hours of the morning.

BMT is the home of the Vietnamese coffee industry, and we are blessed with many beautiful cafes and places to enjoy a quiet cup, or 3...

Voted Vietnam's greenest city, BMT is quickly developing from a sleepy rural capital, into an economically important regional center.

Please ask me for more details. Any and all enquiries answered.

Salary and benefits

We enjoy a very low cost of living, and offer a base salary of $1400, with opportunities to earn more (by teaching kindergarten, preschool, kids classes, and public school). Monthly expenses average $500 (living quite comfortably, depends on the individual), so it is very easy to save most of your salary if you so desire.

If you are a female kindergarten teacher with experience, we can offer you $1600 USD base salary per month, plus $100 USD housing allowance per month.

Long contract of AT LEAST 1 year.

We will assist you to find suitable short and longer term accommodation in Buon Ma Thuot, and process your visa, work permit, and temporary resident card for you.
