Portuguese Teacher


We are looking for a Portuguese teacher to join our team at Rio & Learn. If you are seeking a vibrant and enjoyable work environment, then this position is perfect for you! We are in search of a dedicated professional who is willing to face any challenge that comes their way.

Moreover, it is essential to possess a cheerful and outgoing demeanor, as well as the ability to adapt to our Funlearning and Livelearning methodologies. We expect you to be committed, eager to progress, and ready for personal and professional growth.

The workload is 40 hours a week, from Monday to Friday, with classes available between 8 am and 8 pm. You will teach approximately 6 hours of classes or activities per day and you will have from 1 hour and 30 minutes to 2 hours for training, lesson preparation and other activities that will contribute to your professional growth.

It’s important to notice that you might have fewer hours of work in a day, and more hours in the next. The same can happen for some weeks: less work in a week and more work on the next. But don’t worry: every hour is added up and duly recorded!

Initially, you will occupy the position of Junior Portuguese Teacher for one year, after which you will be AUTOMATICALLY PROMOTED, accompanied by a salary increase.  Amazing, isn’t it?
