Seeking position as English instructor/teacher

Hello everyone!! I am in the process of making a big move down to Cancún and any information, advice, or offerings would be greatly appreciated! I am a 27 year old male seeking a position as an English instructor in Cancún. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature at Montana State University in May of 2016, graduating with honors. Throughout my studies at MSU, I became highly proficient and skilled in all aspects of the English language achieving credits in a variety of courses, including composition, literature studies and linguistics. I possess a thorough understanding and knowledge of both the verbal and written aspects of the English language. I am a committed and enthusiastic individual, possessing a strong work ethic, and I would love to be given an opportunity to showcase my skills and abilities as well as my dedication. I am moving to Cancún on April 2nd, 2018 in which time I am planning on taking to the streets with my resume to try to meet and talk with as many potential employers as I can. I already have a resume and cover letter completed, and i would be willing to provide it to anybody interested in my skills. As I said before, this is a big move for me but I am committed to making it work. I am excited and thrilled to see what the near future holds for me. Anybody with any information or advice for this journey, I encourage you to share it with me. I would love to hear your story or what you have to suggest!! Thanks for taking the time to read through this, and I look forward to hearing from some people.

Sorry but it's doubtful any of that will put you at an advantage.  Even the mention of all those accompaniments will make you look like a dope.  I did the the gig for 30 years in five countries.

Here's what will give you an advantage:  You have been in country for a long time.  You are married to a national with children.  You have a good presentation (good looking, well dressed).  Spanish is not used in the classroom.  It's really good if you have taught in a school in your country for at least two years. 

Your teacher requirements are expected, not revered.  Your field of study doesn't matter.   Your grades don't matter.  Letters of recommendation don't matter.  They're not interested in all that crap.  If they like you they'll hire you.

And now the #1 most important personal skill:  That you're good at we call, crowd control.  Mexican students will play you like a Mariachi band.

I think you would do better in Japan.They eat that stuff up.

Yes they do.  I'm guessing any anal retentive society would.

If I was looking for a position in Japan I would have included that in my post. Thanks for the confidence booster!! Not really sure this helps at all :(

Anal society?? Seems a bit racist to me which I don’t appreciate. Once again, thanks for the support 🤷‍♂️😖

:whistle:

Well, there goes the thought of teaching HERE. Even online, where they only see you from the neck up, it's "appearance only."

Have you considered teaching English online? I work for three companies and earn $20/hr - you could too if you are hired - the biggest companies require US or Canadian citizenship and North American accent, although I have heard light accents . Men are more easily hired because the parents esteem men teachers a bit more etc .

Reply if you are interested, I can send you the materials you will need to train and apply - the process can be quick.

I would love to get the info you are refering to...planning a move in 2-4 yrs...would like to get started doing this kind of work.
