I taught adults, met interesting people, had great conversations, didn't dread going to work, left work in a better mood than when I started, never saw my "manager" or had to deal with any bullshit. It took me a while to get up to 20 hours a week, and i made $500 an hour.
I don't know where people are getting their info about GV, but you cannot show up drunk to work. In fact, I heard stories about teachers before me showing up drunk, and getting fired. One of them turned into a homeless bum with like 6 dogs. Anyway, the age of teachers does tend to be a bit older, so maybe they aren't as "fit" as kids just out of college, but that is completely irrelevant when considering where to work. I knew a lot of people who had been teaching in GV for 10 years. I never met anyone who taught at any other cram school for that long, so that should tell you something. I left Asia, and I'll never teach English again, but if I did I'd never teach children in some place like Hess.
