    ABOUT OUR SCHOOL
    Atlanta International School (AIS) is a preschool to grade 12 private, non-profit school with language immersion and International Baccalaureate (IB) Curriculum in the Buckhead area of Atlanta.

    Our mission is simple - To develop courageous leaders who shape their world for the better. The core values that drive our school are:
    • The joy of learning and purposeful effort.
    • Mutual respect and understanding in an intentionally inclusive and intercultural community.
    Requirements: 
    • Native speaker of one of the languages listed above.
    • Experience working with children.
    • A background in teaching or language acquisition desirable.
    • Must be flexible, engaging, open-minded and comfortable leading an active group of students in an inquiry-based environment.
    • The school will provide curriculum guidelines with the expectation that tutors will set individual learning goals for students based on teacher recommendations.
    French, German, and ESOL/ESL classes will be composed of a mix of grade levels (5K & Gr. 1, Gr. 2 & 3, or Gr. 4 & 5). Spanish classes will be composed of a single grade level. Most students will be at an intermediate competency level. Class groups are small (maximum 8). Students are enrolled during the day in a dual language program where they are learning in the target language 50% of the time, but these particular students need extra support to succeed in that environment. 
     
    Goals of the program are: 
    • Identify specific areas of need for each child (with input from the class teacher).
    • Provide opportunities for the use of oral language skills through games; role plays etc.
    • Use and develop student reading and writing skills in an engaging context.
    • Complete any assigned target language homework from class teacher.
    • Practice reading appropriately challenging books.
    Tactical Details: 
    • Tutors can teach one or two groups. If one group it is either M/W or T/Th 3:00-4:30.
    • Plan on one additional hour per week (to be scheduled) for coordination with class teacher/language coordinator.
    • One group = 4 hours per week, Two groups = 7 hours per week. 
    • $50 per hour/ annually $10,080 (if two groups) paid on a semi-monthly basis. 
    • Sign a contract for the semester (August 14-December 17 and January 5-May 31).
    To Apply:
    Please send your resume and cover letter as attachments to employment@aischool.org, using 'French Language Support Tutor' (or German or Spanish, etc.) as the subject heading.

Be Aware: Atlanta International School posts vacancies on our website at www.aischool.org and with the major international recruiting fairs each year. Several international schools have reported scams involving non-existent teaching jobs. Some international schools have recently had their web sites cloned, and candidates have been asked to send large amounts of money to fake employment agencies. All international candidates are urged to be diligent in investigating potential schools during the recruiting process and prior to signing a contract. Use extreme caution if you have been asked for money or private information.
