Language Teaching in Singapore

Postby javitxu » Thu, 19 May 2005 8:43 pm


We live in England and my company is sending me to Singapore for a temporary assignment starting July 05.
My wife teaches Languages (Spanish, French and English) on a freelance basis to professionals in large corporations like Morgan Stanley or Merril Lynch; she's got almost 10 years experience teaching Languages to adults.
She'll be interested in doing something similar during our time in Singapore.
Anybody knows of any Agency in Singapore dealing with this kind of stuff? Or any other source of information we can refer to?

Thanks a lot :wink:

there are a few options depending on your wife's educational background. The universities and polytechnics would be a great place to start (masters degree at least is req'd though).

If she has a teaching qual. she could try International Schools - check their websites as this is where they advertise their vacancies.

Private insitutions are abound in SG but they don't pay well and you could get caught by some fly-by-night'ers. They don't have the same expectations - but you get what you pay for I guess...

Maybe someone else could help with free-lancing? I'm not sure about this side of things. I hope this helps though.

Try International Schools (schools for expat kids), language schools like Berlitz and inlangua, or universities.

Here is a job opp - part time english instructors at belitz singapore: ... G&cCode=48

And another for Inlingua Singapore:

Actually there was an ad in the paper the other day for an English teacher needed at the School of Public Policy at NUS.
