Talking to Teachers

“There are several things that stand out about being a Wall Street Teacher and are the reasons why I’ve stayed here longer than any other company and will continue to do so.

First of all there are the students. As we become familiar with our students over the duration of their time we begin to become familiar with them as friends.

Second is the teaching material and class length. Four person Encounter classes and eight person Complimentary classes are tightly related to the Computer based self learning system.

Third is the management structure, with regular ongoing training and a clear path for those who wish to advance their careers within Wall Street English.”

Roger Underhill, Wall Street English, Shanghai
“This job allows you to work with so many diverse people around China and the globe. Wall Street helps you develop your skills by offering training, so you never feel “behind the team”.

No matter what your position is, there is development opportunities and continuous development through seminars and workshops with topics relevant to your daily working life.”

Jamie Donohue, Wall Street English, Shanghai
“It was initially challenging adapting to the different teaching environments that Wall Street English offers students, but after undergoing the foreign teacher training I felt confident working in the all the different classes.

The range of classes offered means that as a teacher there is a lot of variety in teaching experiences, making it a very stimulating job; ranging from small groups of students focusing on more precise level-specific grammar and vocabulary, to classes with eight to twelve students focusing on more general communication and conversational skills.”

John Marrett, Wall Street English, Beijing
“I started working with Wall Street English in October 2010. I immediately became an integral member of the service team. My colleagues made me feel comfortable and confident in my abilities.

They were very supportive while I learned the duties of my position they were also helpful in the areas I needed to improve.”

Sam Onanda, Wall Street English, Shanghai

FAQ

There are no costs at all for you. The entire recruitment process is free of charge.
Students expect to get immersed in English during class and so speaking Chinese is actually discouraged in class. So not speaking Chinese is not a problem regarding the job. All teachers receive complementary Chinese lessons if they wish. These are done in multi-week courses, so you can join at the start of the next course.
Your school will organise all the necessary papers needed to obtain a legal 1 year work (Z) visa for you. This process can take between 4 to 8 weeks and the school will help you through the process.
