Native English Teacher needed starting late February 2013 in Dongying City, Shandong, China
Our school, Golden Bridge Training Centre (GBTC) of Shengli Oilfield, has close connections with the local Education department. We provide Oral English teachers to various primary and middle schools in the Dongying and Yellow River mouth region. Dongying is a modern city located close to the famous Yellow River mouth; traditional villages also surround the city. It is only 5 hours by bus or a quick 45 minute flight to Beijing; we also have daily flights to Shanghai, less than 2 hours. Flights to Dalian and Chongqing have also recently commenced.
With a history of over 9 years, GBTC has previously employed a number of foreign teachers, many who have stayed for multiple years, including myself who am currently serving my 5th year in Dongying with GBTC. We focus on providing interesting and enjoyable classes to young learners between 6 and 16 years
We are seeking a new teacher to join our team of 9 Foreign Teachers. Ideally you will have teaching experience in China or another foreign country or your own. A degree in any discipline is required, TESOL or equivalent certification is also desirable or previous training/teaching experience.
An ability to plan and deliver classes which encourage student participation is essential. For teachers who have limited experience we will provide ongoing training to assist with your own growth as a teacher. A Chinese assistant is also provided for each class.
The hours for these positions will generally be Monday to Friday with 4 or 5 classes per day spread between morning and afternoon. Each class is usually 40-45mins. Overtime and extra classes are also sometimes available. The salary range for these positions is 6000-7000 Yuan per month depending on experience and qualifications. There are no office hours necessary, anytime out of class time is yours!
The cost of living in Dongying is also quite low, our teachers can live comfortably on 1500-2000 Yuan per month enabling you to save a considerable portion of your salary.
The school also provides a free private apartment, utilities, internet, and a free Chinese class every week for those who would like to study and a dedicated foreign teacher to assist you with settling in and during your stay in Dongying. We will also enjoy regular outings to show you around the local area. Our teachers also enjoy a 4-5 week winter break and approx 2 months in summer plus other standard Chinese public holidays. An airfare allowance (8000 Yuan) is also paid at the end of a 1 year contract.
