Koh Samui may be a haven for international sun-worshippers with its stunning beaches, the waterfalls and the nightlife, but it too suffers from a lack of funding for basics such as education, childcare and school development. Many of the schools here have set up on land owned by temples with financial support being raised by the monks. As the monks have their own lifestyles to support, funding for the schools is often meager, if anything. That?s where you come in! Any Thai with an ability to speak even the most basic English stands a better chance of breaking free from their meager surroundings.
Working within a community school you will assist teachers with teaching basic English to 6 to 12 years olds. This will involve interaction with kids during lessons, in break lunch periods and in extracurricular activities sech as sport & football.
Koh Samui island lies off the East Coast of Thailand, it?s just a 20min ferry ride from Koh Phangan where our Ultimate Thailand 10-day tour ends. Koh Samui is famous for its stunning white sandy beaches, amazing food and epic nightlife.
You?ll be staying in our guest house in a small, quiet community, not far from the beach. The house is located very close to all amenities you will need to settle in quickly and easily such as ATM?s, supermarkets, restaurants, bars, shops and more.
