Teaching at Mareas is a truly unique experience. There is a strong community here and a lot of love and support. It is also a challenge, planning classes for students in different levels, who often speak different languages can be quite an adventure.


If you are interested in applying, here is what you need to know...

1) We only hire teachers who are native speakers of at least one of our two main languages (Spanish or English). It is not necessary to speak both.


2) We only hire teachers who have a degree in teaching and/or education from an accredited University (it does not have to be from a specific country). At this time, we are not hiring teachers who only have a TEFL/TESL/TESOL training. 

3) We only hire teachers who hold current teaching licenses in their home country. At this time, we are not hiring teachers who only have a TEFL/TESL/TESOL certificate.

5) We are looking for team players, who are flexible, creative, and loving.
