ESL Teacher in Montréal, QC
Total Freedom and Great Supervisor but Salary SucksLike many teaching jobs at language schools, it is a great environment and there's lots of flexibility to use your own materials and teach the way you want. However, the money is just isn't there. I maxxed out @ $21 /hr! Great, if you are a student or as a supplementary income, but just not sustainable unless you work 30 hours plus a week teaching!

Fun/Interesting corporate contracts; awesome staff that offers great support & free workshops I love working with Elam! I’ve taught English for many years and my experience with them has been overwhelmingly positive. Elam always provides fun/interesting contracts and offers excellent resources/materials to help you tailor classes to your students' interests and needs. They give you autonomy over the structure, methodology and content of your classes, and group size is small (never exceeding six students), enabling you to focus on individual needs. Over the years, I was offered the opportunity to teach a variety of courses for specific purposes and needs (e.g. report writing, interview/interviewing skills, negotiation/persuasion skills, pronunciation, etc.) which has enabled me to progressively hone my overall skills as a corporate trainer. Management is amazing: friendly, understanding and so helpful! They are always available and eager to assist you with anything you might need. One of the greatest aspects about working with Elam is that their team is comprised of experienced teachers who understand both sides of the teaching/learning equation. Out of all of my experiences with language schools, I can say that Elam is the best at matching teachers with students, since they take into consideration personality, preferred learning/teaching styles, your strengths and student needs. In my opinion, this is an essential, though often overlooked, ingredient that greatly enhances the chance of a rewarding experience for the teacher and a successful/fun learning experience for the student(s). Just apply and you’ll see! You won’t be disappointed!
Excellent organization to belong to! An excellent company to work for! Students are great and the supervisors are amazing! Great energy and zero drama! I would highly recommend applying if you are looking for a stress-free teaching environment.

Professional team!I am self-employed and have been working with Elam as an English instructor for 13 years. I can say, without a doubt, that my experience has been wonderful. The entire team is very professional and knowledgable, open-minded and kind. Never once have I had any issues dealing with them. It would be nice, however, if the pay were a bit better. I also appreciate the freedom they give me to use my own material based on my students’ needs. I would love to continue our collaboration and would highly recommend Elam to other language instructors.
