Smooth Talkers is a private language school that works with a variety of students in Santiago, Chile. We employ enthusiastic, reliable teachers with a genuine interest in helping students improve their English proficiency. Our teachers work with students from many international and national companies with offices in Santiago, as well as university students. We offer individual or group classes, located at client's homes or offices, with learners ranging from beginner to advanced levels. We also offer English proficiency exam test prep and career-specific courses, such as English for Engineering or Medicine.
Our Administration is welcoming and ready to help new arrivals adapt to Santiago, whether is be suggestions on housing or guidance in the Visa application process. We also provide teaching materials for students at every level. We look forward to having you on our team!
We are looking for motivated native English speakers with teaching experience or qualifications. You do not necessarily need to have a university degree in the field, but you should have a TEFL certificate (CELTA or similar).
You should be comfortable responding to grammar questions, but also fostering an enjoyable class environment. Speaking Spanish at a pre-Intermediate level or better is a plus.
We have clients from a variety of backgrounds. Many students are from major Chilean companies who need to train their management teams in business English. We also have many private students, ranging from children to graduates intending to further their studies in English-speaking countries, to adults seeking to broaden their employment and travel options.
We fit courses to students’ goals and schedules, but we also encourage teachers to bring in their individual experience and successful methodologies. We regularly stay in touch with teachers to make sure everything is on track and try to build long-term relationships, both with teachers and clients.
