Hi all,
I am thinking about moving to Santo Domingo to teach English. However, I lack any firsthand knowledge about the people, living and life in general down there. I was hoping that someone would be kind enough to leave me some information. I was also wondering if this is a standard contract for Americans down there(I am TESOL certified and have a B.A in English but have no experience teaching):
Monthly Salary- 2,191.18usd
Health Insurance
Housing up to 500usd
Round Trip ticket
This is from The Ashton School so if anyone knows about that I would love to hear about it.
Thanks,
J

...take it, if you have an offer. can't be worse than sitting in some cubicle doing telemarketing.

where did you see the ad?

p.s. i checked out the school and blacklists...looks legit. but, of course scroll down on one of the names and try to contact one of the Academic teachers by email.

Thanks for responding johninmaine,
I found the job at www.esljobfind.com
I will try to contact one of the other teachers, that seems like a great idea.
What sites do people use to check out schools? I have tried to find blacklist sites or ones that rate schools but haven't been successful.
Thanks again,
J

Better beware that it's not a "bait 'n switch" tactic.
The $$$ is too good for this part of the world especially for DR.
Needless to say, check and recheck ! Good luck.

A friend is leaving the DR and wants to give away his hours to anyone already in DR that wants to teach business professionals. Any takers?

Hi all..

I'm just joining the forum and noticed these posts. I have actively been seeking a teaching position in the DR. I am available immediately and am open to teach either children or business professionals.

If there are any opportunities still available that anyone may know of, I would greatly appreciate the info!

Thanks!

Was this job actually legit then?

I'd also go with the 'not legit' or 'bait and switch'...just curious if the OP went for it or not.

Hi Skijaybo97, I was just wondering if you ever decided to go and teach for The Ashton School, and if so, what has your experience been with them so far?
