    I was so excited I didn't even think to negotiate - big mistake. I think next time I would be sure to negotiate for a better salary. Benefits were generous though.

    ESL Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at GEOS Language in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    The company was in a pinch to hire some English teachers for a camp, and they hired me after a short one on one interview. I started the next day. They said that they normally require teachers to teach a model class as part of the interview process. The interview lasted about 20 minutes and the director had an interview questionnaire that she was filling out during the interview. She was careful to ask about my previous teaching experience as well as what kind of teaching style and activities I usually use (I emphasized that I focused on student participation and pair and group work).
