ESL Jobs in Beijing

Our school in Beijing is now holding interviews for motivated, professional English young learner teachers. Our students are from kindergarten to middle school level, aged from 3 to 14 years old.

We invite you to join our large team, currently made up of 25 native English teachers and 45 local teachers in Beijing in our progressive school established over 17 years ago. All our English classes use our school’s K-12 copyrighted materials and methods from the United States. In order to learn how to speak with a pure American accent, we utilize a special pedagogy to teach our students. Our classes, teaching materials, teaching methods, and evaluation systems correspond directly with many of our sister schools in the United States. With all lesson plans in place, teachers are free to focus on their teaching, with minimum lesson planning time.

Teaching assistance are on hand to help with classroom management and translation when need be. Our school puts a focus on a variety of teaching styles including dictation, reading, workbook tasks, composition, songs, pronunciation, debates, presentations and more. Classes run from Monday to Friday so teachers have weekends as their days off.
