Open Position in Zurich Oberland

Assignment co-working Zurich Oberland

Part-time position - Starting in June 2022

Townsquare Lessons goes into the second round!
Our small language school was set up in Uster in 2017 to provide English lessons for small groups on all levels.
Just like so many other businesses, we suffered a severe setback during the two-year pandemic. We survived and will now continue to develop this challenging tutoring set-up. During the past month, inquiries for language lessons have reached us again, encouraging us to go ahead. We are optimistic and counting on a growing post-pandemic demand for language education, especially with respect to generations X and boomer. We are now ready to look for an additional English teacher for levels B1 to C2.

Our set-up allows individual tutors to provide high-quality lessons based on their own experience, methods and creativity. It also allows them to share experience and optimise lesson planning to fit in with their own private schedules.Please carefully consider the following premises before you address us:

  • A high level of commitment and integrity is required. We are building a brand together, you will be the face of Townsquare and you will be part of the process. Your         commitment will be highly rewarded by the expected local response as a result from our advertising and marketing efforts.  In short, this is not just another side income nice to have, it is a commitment. The quality of Townsquare strongly depends on each individual tutor and a positive feedback from our student base.
  • Our tutors are highly motivated. They are creative and set up their own classes and programs. They are ready to put in the extra effort to provide outstanding lessons. From an administrational point of view, our tutors manage their own student bas
  • Patience is crucial at the outset, as we are still at the beginning of forming our classes and recovering from the pandemic. As a result of our joint efforts, you will be able to increase your base along the road.

 

The classroom, also an integral part of our marketing campaign is small but convenient. It is ideal for up to six students and offers a pleasant learning environment much appreciated by current classes and tutors. It is located on the first floor of a historic brick house adjacent to a small park. The location often reminds students of a foreign language school.
