Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: few hours in the winter season
A workday at Berlitz usually consisted of arriving, picking up the files of the students to be taught that day, lesson preparation, subsequent lesson delivery while waiting for the next student between classes.
I learned to be flexible and work in an environment where there were teachers from several different countries.
My Instructional Supervisor was very competent and was willing to schedule me around my hours of availability. We aroked well together to solve issues that arose.
My co-workers, coming from all areas of the globe, each brought their own understanding of how everything worked. They were a lot of fun in the staff room as well.
The hardest part of the job was teaching those that did not want to be taught and were only there because their bosses told them to be there.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being with my colleagues. Many of them had interesting personalities.
