Mexico/ESL Teaching

Advertisement


Question
Hi Julia,
I am a teacher from Wisconsin currently living in San Miguel.  I have been teaching ESL in Mexico, but I really love it here and do not want to leave.  Do you know of any schools looking for ESL/EFL teachers?  I have lots of experience and a Master's in Education.  
I would appreciate any suggestions you might have in pursuing ESL tutoring or teaching.  I have some flyers and business cards I have been posting and distributing, but my efforts have  produced meager results.
Thanks.
Have a great day.
Maria

Answer
Hi Maria,

I'm not surprised you want to stay! Mexico is wonderful. I hope you can make your way.  I'm also not surprised your flyers haven't resulted in much.  I can't tell you specific schools in your area, but I did write some articles about looking for a teaching job in Mexico.  The ones of most interest to you will be parts 2 and 4:

and

Please excuse the weird characters in the text. They were created when I upgraded the data base for my web site.  The system replaced punctuation with crazy symbols and I haven't had time to go in and fix them.  You'll still be able to read the text fine.  

I hope they are of some use to you.

Regards, Julia

I can answer questions about cultural differences between the U.S. and Mexico, teaching EFL, taxis, buses, cost of living, foods, water, paying bills, being pregnant and delivering your baby in Mexico, finding doctors, health care, and travel in central Mexico especially Morelos. I can't answer questions about purchasing real estate in Mexico. (Please DON'T MARK the question as "private" unless your question is truly private.
