The Students

Students are typically 20 to 35 year old professionals, well-educated and from a wide variety of backgrounds. They are motivated to learn English and recognise it as a skill essential for their career development. Levels range from beginner right through to advanced and all students are clearly placement tested to ensure they are studying alongside students of the same abilities.

Job Option 1: Teach General English
You will be based in one of our modern, well equipped centers. Class sizes are kept small, to an average of 4 students per class, which helps ensure real progress is made by all and allows for easy classroom management.

Lessons are made up of a variety of teaching materials and are designed to be engaging and communicative. Teachers guide students through both controlled practice and authentic conversation activities. All the lesson materials are already in place, so minimal lesson planning is required.

Job Option 2: Teach Business English Students
Wall Street English run bespoke English language courses for small groups of business English students. These courses will utilize the Wall Street English teaching materials, as well as the Pearson materials such as the excellent Market Leader series and will also include an element of customization to suit the unique language learning needs of each class. Topics will include taking part in meetings, business emails, delivering a presentation and negotiating effectively in English, for example. Some of the clients we teach include Huawei (major Chinese tech company) and Southern China Airlines.

Job Option 3: Teach VVIP Students
Students who chose the premium VVIP courses at Wall Street English are often busy business people or celebrities who schedule personal 1-on-1 classes with a teacher at a location of their choosing. As a VVIP teacher you will travel to different locations to meet the student, which could be at Wall Street centers or the students house or in a quiet café.

Job Option 4: Online Teaching
As an Online Teacher you will be based in our modern center in the vibrant city of Shanghai and will deliver online classes to students all over China. You will be using the advanced Wall Street English online teaching platform. Lessons are made up of a variety of teaching materials and are designed to be engaging and communicative. Teachers guide students through grammar points, controlled practice and other language activities.

Professional Development
You will not only be teaching, but also developing your own skill sets and competencies. Teacher training and support is central to our company culture and through workshops, seminars and class observations you will be constantly expanding the teaching methods at your disposal. Time is devoted to idea and experience sharing so you always have fresh ideas to work with.

“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 both as students and then 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 and being fifty five minutes long they are focused and punchy.

Third is the management structure which removes the cultural barriers which are sometimes difficult to adapt to, regular ongoing training and a clear path for those who wish to advance their careers within Wall Street English.
