Description

International University Exchange Center (IUEC) offers English language classes and helps support Korean students applying to several schools and colleges in Wisconsin.

-Teaching and giving feedback on English language skills and facilitating discussions in English.
-Helping students practice conversation and learn about life in Wisconsin.
-Preparing lessons and grading homework following the provided curriculum and lesson objectives.

An additional 3-5 hours will be needed for preparation, follow up, and any meetings with supervisor and team.

Teaching hours will depend on availability and number of interns. For example, students may teach 2-3 hour blocks on weekdays either in morning or evening (6-8pm CST) and have additional time for meetings and preparation. Final schedule will be set based on intern availability.

Communication will take place via email and KaKaoTalk.
