Maximo Nivel is always looking for great ESL teachers to join our teaching team in Antigua, Guatemala; Cusco, Peru; San Jose, Costa Rica, and ONLINE.

Maximo Nivel is a leading language training center and we are very well known for our “Native English Program.” The Native English Program is clearly defined by our dedication to excellent teaching, professionalism in everything we do, and great client service. Maximo Nivel is a hard-working and professional group—and these are the kind of teachers we look for.

ESL teachers teach 30 contact hours per week, Monday – Friday. Class size is strictly limited to 12 learners. Most teachers teach a range of levels from Basic to Advanced. The majority of our learners are young adults (18-30 years old) and we provide classes specifically for teenagers (12-16 years old) between 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM only.
We pride ourselves on our teachers, and it is important that you take pride in your teaching. We do not hire tourists for short-term positions; we specifically look for professionals with a passion for teaching. We stress three things in our classrooms:

1. Professionalism
2. Chemistry with our learners
3. Student Talk Time (STT)

Salary and benefits

− bonus based on performance and a motivating finishing bonus

The Institute pays teachers a fixed base salary approximately 10% above the average teacher’s salary in-country. This salary is not adjusted down unless teachers request fewer classes, so monthly budgeting is easy. Base salary can be increased by adding classes, extra hours, substituting for other teachers, and earning ‘Rock Star status’. Finishing bonuses are also paid after a minimum 6-month commitment.


− Bachelor’s Degree required

− TEFL, TESOL, or CELTA certification required (minimum 120 hours)
