    One of the main goals of BigAppleSchool is to bring together people who are passionate about English and provide them with opportunities to study, practice and use the language in real life. Our skilled and enthusiastic teachers organize, hold and actively participate in different events and activities for students, which helps to build our international community.

    Who are our students?

    We teach children aged 4 to 18. Young learner and teen education is very important because you help kids not only learn English, but also acquire the skills they will need further in life.


    By teaching adults, you get the freedom of equal communication. When you work with adults, you learn from them, you make new friends and gain opportunities for cross-cultural exchange.

In our school you will find everything you need for teaching – from up-to-date course books, ready-made lesson plans and office supplies to unlimited freshly brewed coffee and free snacks. All you need is to love English and share that passion with your students.

    Methodological support

    We try to make the working process easier. All teachers are equipped with ready-made lesson plans. Our materials, as well as lesson schedules, syllabuses and feedback forms are available online from any device. Teachers have constant support from the academic department while preparing for and delivering lessons. For the teacher's convenience, the administrators try to efficiently distribute their workload.

    Teacher is the face of the company

    Our teachers are professionals who are eager to share their experience with students. In order to do it, teachers give lectures and seminars, organize workshops and master classes, shoot videos, publish educational articles, record a weekly podcast, and hold competitions for students. Positive testimonials from students is the best reward for our job.
