Looking to earn maximum US Tax free income by teaching English overseas? If you have a clean record, do not mind the heat and cultural differences, this may be just for you!

Requirements for Eligibility

Due to the requirements of teaching males in the petroleum industry in Saudi Arabia, only native English speaking male instructors are potentially eligible candidates for these corporate teaching positions. You need to have a US Bachelor degree or equivalent 4 year degree, a Tefl or TESOL certificate and four years of teaching experience.

Higher degree = Higher pay
Since 2004, we have had so many UEC TEFL course graduates with Bachelor degrees who were looking for high income teaching positions, we wanted to make the best paying teaching opportunities available to our graduates. After checking with US government agencies and military industrial contractors for teaching employment opportunities in the Middle East, the highest teaching pay available for Bachelor degree holders with teaching experience was about US$44,500 per year, tax free. That, to us, was not enough. So we kept looking and came upon this opportunity that pays, in our view and experience, the best teaching wages in all of Saudi Arabia:

For native English speaking males under the age of 56, meeting above listed requirements, remuneration packages start at US$7,500++PER MONTH and go up to 5 figures..More experience and higher degrees equal higher pay.

The Teaching Load
Teach 4 hours five days per week, spend an additional 4 hours per workday in the office to prepare for classes, get twelve days paid vacation every four months, including roundtrip flight to London or percentage remuneration of the flight fare.

Think Before You Apply:
The work pays well as the environment is not without its challenges: culturally, educationally, and for many, intellectually and emotionally as well. These are one year contracts, and there are renewal bonuses, but there is still substantial turnover.

Upsides to Teaching in Saudi Arabia: :
Saudi Arabia has world class facilities: Great gyms, Western chain restaurants and supermarkets, and perfectly functioning high speed internet connection to stay in touch with loved ones back home. You will be able to save a lot of money and can fully focus on perfecting your teaching, and you can travel to neighboring Dubai on the weekends. Dubai is the #1 Las Vegas like tourist destination of the Middle East, as well as the playground of the rich and famous.

If you are a native English speaker with the appropriate passport, have a clean background check, are looking to teach in a corporate setting, and make very good money, then teaching in Saudi Arabia is perfect for you.

We already have a number of course graduates currently teaching in the Kingdom and we are accepting more teaching candidates.
