Dux English Academy - Seoul

Institute Review
I wanted to leave an honest review for this school. I have been working at this school for less than a year, but when I arrived was when COVID restrictions were still in place. The school that I work at is in Seoul, in the northwestern part of the city in an area known as Sanggye. I have never worked overseas before, so I was nervous. I will admit that there were some things at the beginning that were frustrating, but it wasn't so much with the school as with my situation. The school is actually quite a nice place to work if you can learn the way they teach and get on board with it. It's definitely not the ideal environment for everyone, but I've had few difficulties adjusting.
The pros
Some of the best parts of the school is how close it is to where they have housing. The company provides an apartment for you. If you choose to live in a different place on your own, they do not provide a stipend, so it's on your own penny. However, I'm content with my living situation and it's perfect for one person. If I were married, it might be a different story. I am also content with the working hours. My contract says to work from 2-9, but rarely do I work the full time schedule. The class schedules change each day, so it might be a lot to get used to, however, once you get into a rhythm, you're good. I also like the people there. The front desk workers (the managers of that particular branch) have always been helpful and cheerful when you ask for help. Sometimes it is difficult to communicate, but they always try hard to understand you. If you are respectful to them, they will equally treat you with respect.
The cons
I wouldn't say so much cons, but the work that you have isn't always easy. Likewise, working at any school anywhere isn't always easy. There's always something you may or may not like, and that's okay. Compared to my previous job post working as a literature teacher in the United States, my work here is a cake walk. One of the things that DUX prides itself on is having a rigorous schedule for the kids. Many academies will play games or have a more relaxed environment. DUX is one of the academies that tries to stick more to a regime and schedule for the students and the teachers. Sometimes it is too hard for the kids, but with hard work and support, you can really help them to learn. Some people might see the strict curriculum as a negative, but I view it as a positive because I like structure and order. I still have fun where I can, but having a strict curriculum helps me set boundaries when I otherwise might get off topic.
Institution Location
Like I said above, I work at the Sanggye branch in Nowon. There are many branches in many cities.
Relationship
I am an English teacher at the school. I've been there for about 5 months now, and I am still happy with working there.
