Rudolf Joubert Teacher

"I have been teaching English as a foreign language for 5 years. Schools Elite has been one of the best places I have worked. The support from the office staff is superb and having Saturdays and Sundays off is wonderful for someone like me who likes a more structured schedule.

The support I have gotten here has been the best I've ever had in my five years of teaching. Whenever there is a problem at a school they get on it immediately and it gets solved quite quickly."

Triumph McGinn Teacher

"Schools Elite have one of the most efficient and professionally staffed teams that I have had the pleasure of working with during my time in SE Asia.

There are constant lines of open communication between teachers, managers and office staff which leads to a very healthy and comfortable working environment.

I have always felt heard and supported during my time at Schools Elite."

Pham Thi Hanh VNC Teacher

"I am a Vietnamese teacher at Schools Elite. I have worked at SE for about one year and this has been an amazing experience in my teaching career. Everyone at the SE office is very nice and helpful. I have learnt a lot of things from my colleagues.

Here I have been provided and supported with all the necessary teaching skills for my work. It is something that you can't easily get anywhere.

Thanks SE for my great teaching experience!"

Claire Johnstone Teacher

"This year I taught at a Primary School and a Kindergarten. At first I felt a bit nervous with the number of children in each class (I had only taught in Language Centres), but I soon got used to it. The classes are big but you are given two TAs who are helpful. Overall the kids are lovely and want to please their teacher.

Even though I didn't see management on a daily basis, they were quick to respond to e-mails and were able to fix problems. I enjoyed working with the other teachers. We shared teaching ideas and had a laugh at break time.

On the social side of things, I went out for lunch with the teachers and TAs and we have met up for a beer in Bia Hois.

One of the best things about working for Schools Elite is that all the teaching is during the day leaving evenings and weekends free."

Renier Kershoff Academic Coordinator

"I have lived and worked in Vietnam for 5 years and most of that time within the Language Link family here in Hanoi. I started as a teacher and was given plenty of opportunity and guidance to develop and expand my skill set.

Working and living in a country that is not your own, is sometimes challenging but it does help you to grow and learn as an individual and as a professional, because things are so different from what you might know or have experienced. This is definitely the case here, so every day is an opportunity to better myself and learn.

When offered the opportunity to head up the Academic team at Schools Elite, I jumped at the opportunity as I saw it as chance to make a difference in the lives of students. At Schools Elite we put our students first and bring high quality education services to those who might not otherwise have the opportunity – and that is what education should be all about to my mind. It’s about giving people opportunities and helping them reach their goals and dreams.”

Matthew Howard-White Teacher

"Working at Schools Elite has been an outstanding learning experience for me. If you want to work with some of the best teaching assistants, "family-feel" peers and students who are energetic and fun, you've come to the right place. You will work week day hours, so no evenings or weekends which is a real bonus compared to a lot of teaching jobs.

The management team is always supportive and willing to help where they can. Most importantly, everyone here cares about the children's education and work extremely hard in creating a safe and curative learning environment. Other teachers are always willing to help and share ideas with each other at a moment's notice, which is invaluable if you are new to ESL teaching.

If you are willing to work hard and have a professional mindset, this is the place for you."
