Job SummaryWe are looking for a full time ESL teacher on a one year contract.
Teaching hours: maximum 24 a week.
Office hours: 5 a week.
We expect teachers to spend at least 3 hours a week on lesson planning plus 1 hour for meetings & training.
Classes: Mostly 5-15 year old children's classes, though we have a strong IELTS exam focus and are looking for both Children's teachers and IELTS specialists. All teachers would be expected to teach some of both. Most classes are a maximum of 14 students.
Details of Position
We are looking for fulltime ESL teachers year round and offer a very competitive package compared to other schools in a city of this size.
The salary, 8,000RMB a month, is quite high compared to the cost of living in Weihai, which is very low.
We are a small school that believes good relationships with our staff make the school better for all, especially our students. This has resulted in a strong reputation for caring and quality allowing us to grow quickly. We teach children's classes on weekends and after school as well as IELTS exam classes throughout the year.
QualificationsAs per Chinese business visa regulations, our teachers must have:
A bachelor degree
2 years full time working experience in their own country, in any industry.
Be a native level English speaker- we cannot get working visas otherwise.
On top of this, we would prefer a TEFL or CELTA certificate. We will consider all teachers with the above qualifications and may adjust the pay accordingly. We also want people with the balance between energy and responsibility, as we like our students to enjoy themselves but also need to know they are learning.
Salary and Benefits8,000 RMB per month for 0-2 years teaching experience
9,000 RMB per month for over 2 years teaching experience
As well as the monthly salary we pay airfare, shared accommodation, health insurance and visa & visa related expenses. While it might seem low compared to other cities, in Beijing or Shanghai you might be paying 3-5K a month in rent and spending twice as much. Most schools in larger cities do not provide rent unless they are well outside the city centre. 8000 in Weihai is the equivalent of 14 to 15 thousand in a larger city. You should be able to save at least 5,000RMB each month.
More Company Information
We are a small private English school run by an Australian and his wife. As such, we treat our teachers with respect and care, cultivating a family environment. We have been operating for over 4 years and have recently opened a second branch following the strong success our method has bred. We care for our teachers and students. We do not put up with irrational demands from parents and will refuse customers if the parents aren't reasonable. Basically, we put quality over profit.
