    I have been working at Approach International Student full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Inevitable to learn at least some Portuguese while teaching English. Good food sometimes for free. Free coffee too...sometimes.

    Cons

    Most teachers don't stay long because of low pay and seem to only teach at the school while looking for teaching positions abroad The benefit package is a joke/nonexistent.

    I have been working at Approach International Student full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If you're interested in teaching ESL, or even thinking about starting ESL teaching career, this is the place to be. I have been working here for almost an year, and I have grown tremendously thanks to Approach. I honestly don't know where to begin here. There are just so many benefits working at Approach. First, every single one that you will be working with at Approach is incredibly nice and so caring. We are always open to each other and looking to help and support. The teachers and staffs here are so friendly and always welcoming. I have never felt so comfortable working in a foreign country, (I am from South Korea btw) but this place, it is like home away from home! Second, we have a great kitchen area which is always full of food and snacks for teachers and staffs. Are you tired of bringing lunch boxes to work? Don't you worry! Approach makes sure that all employees are well fed and happy! Personally, this saved me a ton of $$$$, and you will save a lot of $$, not having to bring food to work. Third, there are countless opportunities to grow here. If you're willing, there are just so many chances for you to go onto higher positions. We have more than 800 students here, and this means we need a lot of people to teach and manage. If you think about it, it is a very promising job with a possibility to grow and upgrade your resume. We are more like a family all together. Honestly, I can't thank enough for all of my coworkers to help me be in this position. I feel blessed to have met Approach in my career path. Please do not hesitate to apply! We're eager to meet you and get to know you!! Cheers!

    Cons

    If you drive, parking maybe a little difficult, but not really. We know a lot of tips with this matter. So, no worries!
