About Russell Recruiting
Contact Russell Recruiting



As you may or may not know, there are literally hundreds of private language schools, government/University posts and public institutions throughout Korea. We advise you to check out our Advice page if you’d like to know exactly what you should be looking out for in your research of X school or company. We work for many different individuals and schools on a semi-regular basis but our main steady contacts are either head offices of the major companies such as YBM, Kid’s Club, SBS, Pagoda, English 20/20, Ding Ding Dang etc., or good friends we personally know through the recruiting community, all of us being former ESL instructors.

It is necessary to say something about the schools themselves and for some pics to get an idea of what schools look like from the outside and in the classroom, try our
Pics page. Due to the humid climate in Asia during the summer months, most schools have air-conditioned classrooms. A teachers' room complete with teachers' materials and resources as well as photocopiers, stereos and computers is also usually standard. Of course, variations will occur in each company but overall, everyone associated with RR and Asian Gateway all concur that the outlying features and infrastructures are similar across the board. The classrooms themselves aren’t that big and generally, most schools we deal with in Korea try to keep class sizes below 12 students per classroom.
