The main role of the Teacher is to provide English instruction to our international students. We are looking for residential teachers (with accommodation and food) and non-residential teachers (without accommodation and food). Residential teachers will also have a counsellor role which involves supervision of the children during evening activities and time off court.

We are not trying be a school or English Language Camp. Our students come to us primarily for tennis. English lessons should be engaging and focused on developing the confidence of students. Our teachers should encourage the students to use the language skills they have learnt in their classrooms. Games, role play, debates, video and other such tools should be at the forefront of the lesson content and tennis should certainly be a key theme throughout the week!
