ASTEX employs a staff of certified EFL teachers
with diverse backgrounds (the better to match teachers with
clients). Once a teacher is hired, the company invests time
and energy in helping them progress in the profession by offering
continuous professional training. The salary is competitive,
and because of sheer volume (1,000 groups last year, about 300
teachers), you can be sure that you'll get as many hours as
you can handle. ASTEX concentrates on small groups and one-to-one
classes usually at companies or private homes, the vast majority
of which are centrally based around Zone A of the bus/metro
network. One really good thing about Astex is that they highly
respect professionals in this business, so if you are thinking
of doing more than just teaching in the future, this company
does offer possibilities of promotion. (Updated Jan. 25, 2007.)
