ESL Jobs in Hangzhou & Shanghai

We are now holding interviews for qualified teachers to teach at our English training schools in the vibrant city of Hangzhou & Shanghai. If you are a dynamic teacher, interested in new challenges in a different culture and can deliver learner centered, engaging lessons, then we are interested in speaking with you.

Our schools are modern with up to date teaching materials and equipment including projectors and computers. Various student interactions are encouraged in class such as group work, pair work, role plays, project work as well as more traditional teaching methods to add variety to the classes and help create a fun and relaxed learning environment.
Currently we have 20 foreign experts employed between these campuses. From Monday to Friday, the first class begins at 16:10, and the last class ends at about 20:40. Each class is 1 hour with a 10-minute break in between. Foreign teachers are required to arrive in school at 15:00 to prepare for the lessons. On Saturday and Sunday, we have classes all day long. The first class begins at 8:30 and the last class ends around 21:00. 2 days off per week is guaranteed.

All new teachers will receive training on arrival and will be introduced to the school and teaching methods. Teaching materials and resources are provided by the school and are targeted to the age of the students being taught. Our teaching materials focus on developing all four skills – speaking, listening, reading and writing. Teachers are encouraged to adapt and supplement the materials where need be to ensure classes are engaging and interesting. We cater mainly to young learners from ages 3-12 and so we use many English games and songs in the classroom.
Our school organizes various other activities such as summer & winter vacation classes where students come during the holidays to learn art, cooking and sports in an English-speaking environment. We also host many parties throughout the year.
