Teaching English (Istanbul)
Hi English Teachers
I'm considering getting TESOL under the belt and teaching English in Istanbul. I'd greatly appreciate your advice regarding:-
1. different work conditions between the different schools (state vs private, junior vs high), higher education (university vs college) and the myriad private english language schools - what institution and position is likely to offer the best work environment, work hours, leave etc?
2. ditto the above as relates to rates of pay and does having a higher education qualification make any difference?
3. is there a main recruitment period when one should aim to arrive in Istanbul for interviews?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated :-)
