Meet Barry O'Callaghan

  Introduction Hello, my name is Barry O’Callaghan, the CEO of RISE Education Global. I’ve been working at the education industry for the past 25 years, and first established RISE China in 2011. RISE Education, which started in China, achieved great success. However, due to regulations concerning foreign ownership of educational assets in China, I sold RISE China for 14 times its annual profit which laid a strong foundation for RISE’s global expansion.   RISE Korea Over the past few years, I have been working to establish RISE institutions worldwide, and Korea is a particularly important country for us. This is because Korea understands and practices the value of education better than any other country. We know how much Korean parents value education and how they implement it.   However, it seems like Korea is still focusing on teaching English in traditional ways like memorizing words and grammar using textbooks.  Rise's strength lies in bringing the best elements from the international education market into Korea and combining them with local educational culture, which differentiates the company from other domestic English private institutes.   We are trying to present the idea and persuade Korean parents that we will provide them with what they want, such as qualified English Education, but not exactly the way they want it because things are changing rapidly.   Vision My vision for Rise is to offer programs that encourage children to think creatively, ask diverse questions, and engage in discussions. This approach moves away from the traditional textbook-based education and exam-oriented methods prevalent in the competitive Korean education market.   Accordingly, we have several goals; Firstly, we provide appropriate and effective English learning tailored to students' ages. Secondly, we select the best programs, learning tools, and materials from around the world to help children focus on English learning in the rapidly changing 21st-century learning environment. Thirdly, we strive to enhance children's communication skills and social competence. Fourthly, we do our best to boost children's self-esteem and make them feel happy within RISE academies. The above goals can also be considered as the beliefs of RISE Korea. They will be applied uniformly across all branches, and we promise never to violate or change them. By achieving all these goals, we aim to enhance children's English proficiency, cultivate their social skills, and prepare them energetically for the 21st century.    Also, we fundamentally pursue an immersive educational environment. It involves students actively participating in and leading team activities under the guidance of teachers, resulting in successful outcomes and achieving the ultimate objectives. Such methods are also the fastest and most effective foreign language learning programs currently adopted by schools in the United States.   Conclusion Moreover, we have incorporated many elements of 'Blended learning,' which combines online and offline learning, in line with the education trends of the 21st century. By exposing students to various English stimuli both online and offline, and conducting English education in various fields such as mathematics, science, social studies, and language, we enable students to speak English fluently, gain confidence, and even enhance leadership skills.   The most realistic way to prepare for our children's future is to quickly adapt to radical changes, and the diverse programs offered by RISE are expected to be of substantial assistance. We believe that such RISE programs have produced outstanding students in approximately 10 countries in Asia, totaling around 100,000 individuals.

Meet David Moon, the Head of R&D and Recruiting

HR Manager Self QnA: David Moon, the Head of R&D and Recruiting My name is David Moon. I am a Korean Canadian who came to Korea in 2003. I have been employed by various academies, but I truly enjoy working at RISE Korea Education. I always wanted to change the English Education that children received. I wanted to help students learn naturally. I wanted our students to have fun while learning. All this was possible because RISE Korea Education truly cares about each individual student. We understand that students’ happiness can only arise from our teachers’ happiness and we endeavor to make that possible through our policies, faculty, and methodologies. Education & Curriculum Q: What is the mission of RISE Korea Education Korea? A: Our mission is to provide an immersive learning environment using the best education technology. In order to accomplish this, we use the Natural Approach methodologies in our classrooms.  Q: What makes RISE Korea Education stand out from other English kindergartens in Korea? A: Our motto is “happiness and safety”. It is true that happiness occurs when a student is having fun. However, we believe that true happiness can only occur when the learning process is a fun process. We are not focused on drilling and giving a lot of homework. We are more focused on having meaningful conversations with our students, understanding our students, and teaching the way our students learn. Q: How does the curriculum help teachers succeed? A: RISE Korea Education provides all the material necessary for classes. From assessments, worksheets, handouts, flashcards, pacing guides to touch-screen TV and E-books. All Rise books have been digitized to allow more engagement in classes. We don’t provide a lesson plan but rather a pacing guides. This allows teachers to be creative in their teaching within the framework of the overall curriculum. Just as all students learn differently, all teachers teach differently. Teachers will learn of RISE Korea Education methodologies and learn to apply them to their teaching style. Q: What are the class size and student-to-teacher ratio? A: The maximum class size is 12 students. Our kindergarten classes usually have 10~12 students. However, our afternoon classes with elementary students have an average of 8 students. The student-to-teacher ratio varies but it is usually about 25~30 students per teacher. For Teachers Q: What can RISE Korea Education offer to teachers that make it stand out? A: When we ask teachers what they like about Rise, they mention students, fellow teachers, and the program.  As our methodologies revolves around questions and as a result, RISE Korea Education students learn to speak quickly and proficiently. Our class are dynamic where thoughts are shared and discussed with peers. Being able to communicate with students, our teachers form a special bond with students based on respect and trust. Our schools are not small. Our smallest school services 8 Foreign teachers and our biggest school services 25 Foreign teachers. Each school has its own culture and teachers never feel alone. All our teachers are friendly and caring of the school, students, and teachers. As RISE Korea Education program is not meant to be about drilling, teachers are not burdened with test results. Also, since all the material are provided to our teachers, they feel prepared for classes without spending a lot of time with preparations. Finally, RISE Korea Education adheres to the Korean labor laws. All RISE Korea Education schools close during Korean national holidays. We also ensure that all our teachers receive the paid holidays every year. With this, our teachers enjoy a balanced life with work being restricted to the school and enjoyment outside.  Q: What kind of teachers do you look for and the qualities they should possess to work at RISE Korea Education? A: We look for teachers whose educational philosophies align with RISE Korea Education. Also, as we are educating kindergarten and lower elementary students, we look for teachers who show passion for teaching and compassion for our students. Our students are humans, something we forget at times due to their age. All our students go through struggles and we need to emphasize with them and try to understand what they are going through. Furthermore, we want our teachers to be consistent and fair when dealing with students. Teachers are humans as well. We all have our favorites but when we make a class policy, it needs to be reinforced consistently and the fairly to all students. Lastly, we look for teachers who are willing to learn and improve their teaching.  Hiring & Training Q: What is your hiring process like and what are some tips that you would give to applicants to help them nail their interview? A: Our interviews are meant to understand each other. RISE Korea Education is looking to see if a teacher would be a good fit for RISE Korea Education. On the other hand, the candidate should be looking to see if RISE Korea Education would be a good fit for them. In order to accomplish this, the candidate should be honest about their answers. When they try to predict the response, we are looking for, that usually leads to inconsistent responses. We want to know who you are. Q: What kind of career development opportunities do you offer at RISE Korea Education?  A: A lot of our teachers stay a lot longer than a year. Some of our teachers have been with us for 5 years. Our experienced teachers will be provided with an opportunity to be a Head teacher, helping the campus with training and teacher supports. Also, RISE Korea Education HQ is constantly on the lookout great teachers to help out with content development. RISE Korea Education R&D currently employ former RISE Korea Education teachers who have acquired the “F” visas.  Q: Do I need to have teaching experience or a teaching license to work at RISE Korea Education? A: Teaching experience and teaching license is not required to work at RISE Korea Education as we provide sufficient training to help new teachers get started. However, they will increase the salary that is offered to you. Q: What are some things that you provide your teachers with to help them develop? (Training, seminars, etc) A: RISE Korea Education initial training consists of three parts, Zoom training, video training, and job shadowing.  All training is compensated on an hourly basis and ends before the contract start date. Although the initial training is great to helps teachers get started, it does not immediately produce great teachers. RISE Korea Education schools provide a lot of supports from the vice principal, academic coordinators, and head teachers who are always looking for ways to assist our teachers. With feedback, workshops, and mock teaching sessions, our teachers transition from being a good teacher to being a great teacher. Q: Lastly, what is one thing that you find most difficult about your position? A: There are so many great candidates with various backgrounds. Each brings with them their own beliefs and skills. Trying to determine who would be a good fit for RISE Korea Education is truly difficult. Also, RISE Korea Education has so much to offer to our teachers. The 1-hour that the candidate and I share in an interview is too limited to reveal all that the RISE Korea Education has to offer. Unfortunately, we have made mistakes and will continue to make mistakes. However, we endeavor to continue to augment our interview process so that both the teacher and RISE Korea Education learn about each other.

Why is the ESL teacher salary still ranging at $2000

Why is the ESL teacher salary still ranging at $2000

    Location The Livingroom, Haebangchon Time 18:00 (February 20th)  Participants Ketan, Kayla, John, Jess, Cate, Stevie, Jane Agenda Why is the ESL salary still ranging at $2000     Status quo: English teachers  salary in Korea.   Why it’s still ranging at 2k: 1. Social norms    Korean employers are used to paying this amount for a starting teacher. 2. Nobody thinks that they can request for more pay. 3. Lack of experience. 4 . Difficult to accentuate resume.     How to match resume with each employers’ requirements Currently in Korea, native English teachers are, on average, making 2 million won each month, despite the fact that it was roughly the same twenty years prior.  As ESL teachers, we are making it our goal to assist native teachers in making more wage for their services in compliance with the in fluctuation of society’s economic status. Presently, there are several issues that are hindering teachers from being applicable for increased pay starting with the current social norms, lack of experience, and the difficulties that accompany writing a presentable resume.   To begin, social norms have become an issue concerning how employers view the value of native English teachers. Employers now believe that teachers are worth approximately 2 million won each month and this belief has only become a social normative based on the assumption that teachers willingly work for that sum and do not request for increased wages. This has been identified as a problem because it upholds the assertion that teachers should continue putting in the same amount of effort, increasing workloads, and additional tasks to be completed for the same amount of money in an increasing economic environment. This can be addressed by informing employers as well as native teachers that their skills are more valuable and deserving of increased wages. If we can accomplish this factor, then we can ensure that teachers have a brighter future while earning higher wages.   Secondly, the primary reason why teachers either do not feel qualified to request for higher wages or feel that they are unable to do so are merely because of lack of teaching experience. Whether it be teachers who have taught previously or are anticipating their first teaching career, each individual needs to have an understanding of the classroom atmosphere as well as the content they are to instruct. Many applying teachers have not yet stepped into a classroom, let alone been responsible of the education of a selected group of children. This is essential because each teacher is required to teach varying values of the English language, be it from literary perspectives or grammatical endeavours; teachers should be showing that they are capable of handling a group of children as instructed.   The final identified reason why native teachers in Korea are unable to increase their wage is because of the difficulties that ensue while constructing a suitable resume. Many teachers are not sure of what they should accentuate within their teaching resume due to the many skills or awards that are available for teachers to present. This problem stems from which specifications employers are demanding and what they should require of their prospective employees; specific teaching styles, methods, or without experience: how the teacher plans to conduct the class. The best way to overcome this barrier is to research the school being applied for and trying to match the writings for that specific career to the teacher most desirable for the instructing position.   This dilemma involving native English teachers’ salaries can be solved by addressing the aforementioned issues of normative teacher valuing, lack of teaching experience, and the difficulties following correct resume construction. As ESL teachers, it is a responsibility to help secure our positioning and reward our endeavours with wage increases. By focusing on these obstacles, we can ensure a more sustainable employment and more benefitting financial stability.   Check out some of our other blogs about resume samples and lesson plans to assist you in creating an ideal persona to be markable and better reciprocated by prospective employers.     For more information or inquiries, contact us at: coffeechatyongsan@gmail.com
