English Language Assistant

This position is for a private boarding that can be found in an old castle on top of a hill, with the nearest village in walking distance.

This position is for a private boarding school situated near Fulda (about an 1.5 hours drive from Frankfurt). It can be found in an old castle on top of a hill, with the nearest village in walking distance.

The school is home to about 100 students aged between 14 and 20, who are organised in so-called “family groups” of up to 12 students. Each group is supervised by a teacher living on campus with the students. Since the relationship between teachers and students is closer than in state schools, students and teachers call each other by their first names.

The Language Assistant is expected to participate in school life, joining one of the “families”, supporting the teachers and teaching about 15 lessons a week, helping the students mastering the English language and preparing them for exams. In return, the Assistant will receive 950 € monthly allowance minus costs for health insurance, food/lodging and social security (leaving 450 € after deduction of these costs).

The Language Assistant will be accommodated in a single room in one of the former teacher flats, possibly sharing the flat with other university students taking part in a practical training year at the school. Besides teaching, you will be encouraged to attend any other classes you might be interested in (e.g. German as a Foreign Language), to take part in extracurricular activities and field trips as a supervisor at no extra costs. School terms usually start at the end of August, and end in July with holidays in October (2 weeks), at Christmas (2-3 weeks), in February (1 week), at Easter (2 weeks) and Pentecost (1 week).
