Our School

Tired of teaching English in a dreary classroom where your teaching skills and degree aren’t being put to use? Want to level up your teaching in a school that actually cares about the students? Want better pay and vacation than most other schools in the country? Come work for us!


KnK is a large, independent hagwon that specializes in teaching English to elementary/middle school students planning on studying abroad. We focus on preparing students for English they may find in a classroom. We put a lot of emphasis on high-interest games, engaging activities, and hands-on projects as a way to facilitate language learning.


We’re located at Migeum Station in Seongnam, a satellite suburb of Seoul. It is a 20 minute subway ride (6 stops) to Gangnam, one of the main shopping and restaurant districts in the country, and many express buses connect us to other popular areas as well.



A successful candidate will be familiar with intermediate-level grammar concepts. They will be able to hold discussions about critical thinking and basic literary analysis (metaphor, hyperbole, etc.). You’ll be working on a level-specific team with 1-3 other teachers, so we’re looking for someone who can work positively and creatively with others, teach effectively, and give our students a bright future. If this interests you, we’d love to hear from you!
