Whatever you’ve pursued in your academic career, you are steps away from teaching English as a second language in a foreign country. There are endless employment opportunities for English teachers around the globe. While providing yourself with a solid source of income, teaching gives you the flexibility to immerse yourself in a new culture and bring your travel dreams within reach.
As you teach English, you will find yourself stumbling on simple questions for which you want answers. As you delve into your own language with your students, you will find a new depth, a new perspective and a new curiosity. In the backdrop of a foreign country, you will have the opportunity to learn as you teach, and discover your own linguistic idiosyncrasies. The relationships you will form with your students will be long-lasting and fulfilling, unlike anything you’ve experienced in prior work environments.
English lessons are as creative as you want them to be. Who you are dictates how you will teach. This is why we do not require certification. You might not have the money, you might not have the test taking abilities, but you can still be an incredible guide in the classroom.Teaching is about being creative, about connecting with your students. Our objective is to bring people into our company who possess creativity, who think independently, and have a thirst to discover.
Felicia graduated from Texas State University in 2007 with a Bachelor of Science Degree, majoring in Teacher Certification. She spent countless hours in classrooms in North America and then took this experience South to Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2007. There she taught English grammar and literature to 5th grade students at a private bilingual academy. In 2009 Felicia moved to Taipei, Taiwan to further her research of quality schools and the overall industry of ESL education.
She has always been an avid traveler, hopping the pond to England when the opportunity arises or finding herself wandering down the cobblestone streets of Tel Aviv. Her teaching and traveling experience combine to create the perfect person to connect both schools and teachers worldwide.
Felicia enjoys running triathlons in her spare time, and though she may be short, she’s got enough fire in her to launch a rocket.
Amy currently holds a Bachelor’s degree in Education from Texas State University. Her educational experiences in North America inspired her to head south to Buenos Aires, Argentina. There she taught English to a wide range of students. She bounced around that city, teaching fourth grade by day and security guards at the US embassy by night. In her spare time, she took advantage of any opportunity to see what South America had to offer. She’s been known to take spontaneous road trips to the beaches of Punta del Este, Uruguay or hop aboard a white water raft down the rivers of Patagonia. She can also be described as the world’s lightest packer.
Amy’s love for traveling has inspired her to help others see the world. Email her for assistance in teaching English abroad.
Mark joined TeachBrave’s marketing team in November 2012. He can best be described as an adventure traveler with a passion for linguistics. After studying abroad in Argentina and eventually graduating with a degree in Spanish Language Education from the University of Texas at Austin, Mark quickly realized that his love affair with foreign cultures could open the doors to a multitude of diverse opportunities. He then took off on a solo trip to Monterrey, Mexico where he spent a year teaching English to high school students. Upon arrival, Mark dove right into everything the Mexican culture had to offer. From mastering the Spanish language to attending rowdy soccer games, Mark blended into his new home with ease. After Mexico, Mark returned to the US where he took what he learned and applied it to what he loves – teaching.
We know Mark will bring that same passion for teaching and traveling to our team, and we couldn’t be happier to have him on board.
