The first YBM English One to One opened in September 2005. It is located in Kangnam, an upscale business and entertainment district in southern Seoul. The institute is surrounded by restaurants and shops, including a large number of western restaurants for those times when you want a taste of home. Subway and bus stops are conveniently located less than a block away.
YBM English One to One offers classes on a mainly 1:1 basis (hence the name). Students come from varied backgrounds, but the majority are business people. Therefore, Business English classes are taught in addition to the usual conversation speaking classes. We also offer specialty classes which cater to individual clients' needs (ex: travel English, interview preparation, e-mail etiquette, telephone English, presentation, TOEIC, IELTS). Unlike at other YBM schools, students determine their own class schedule, so there is no predetermined session. This offers teachers a certain degree of flexibility that may not be available in other YBM locations. Of course, it also requires teachers to be flexible with their schedules.
In order to cater to our elite clientele, YBM English One to One provides top-rate facilities including boardrooms, a TV lounge with free coffee service, a large computer room for student and instructor use and up-to-date audio-visual equipment. Each full-time teacher has his/her own classroom.
Since we tend to attract discerning students, our teachers must have a certain degree of expertise. Teaching experience is essential. Teachers who have English as a Second Language teaching certification and those with some business experience will be given priority over those without.
We expect our teachers to be professional in appearance and manner. In exchange, we offer a higher than average salary and a friendly work environment. The manager and the majority of the other Korean employees speak English, so communication is not an issue. The academic supervisor is a native English speaker who can also communicate in Korean, helping to break down cultural barriers for those unfamiliar with Korea.
