Meet the IIE Team

Our Staff & Faculty


Our teachers are trained, educated, interesting, and have many years of experience teaching abroad and in the United States. We require that all of our teachers have a university degree and at least two years of experience teaching adults or have proper English Language certification. Most of our teachers have been teaching much longer than two years and have taught abroad in Japan, Korea, China, Europe, or South America. They have a great understanding, appreciation, and respect for different cultures and know how to teach many different types of people.
