Hi all,

My name is Anthony and I am a manager at our school here in Taiyuan. I'm not an agent. I've worked here for 4 years and only recruit directly for our school. I also have my own classes and teach just the same as everyone else here!

I will be completely honest to you all when it comes to talking about working at our school and in China. Please dont fall for agents 'amazing' offers that seem too good to be true. Those offers usually arent as described at all.

Here are the basics!

WED,THURS,FRI 16:00-20:30
SAT, SUN 8:30 - 12:30 then 2:00 - 6:30

Students are aged 3-12

Classes have a maximum of 14 students.

Apartment is provided with rent afforded by the school. You will pay utility bills.

Contract completion bonus of 6000rmb (You will actually get this full amount)

Salary of 8000+ bonuses per month.

Its a great school to work for in my opinion. I'm very friendly. The principal is very helpful. We try to make everyone feel welcome here and like a family. Any problems you can come to me or the principal and we will genuinely do our best to help you out. I am a foreigner in China too and I know exactly what concerns you might have and how you will feel at certain times. I will help you out!

The city itself is super cheap and foreigners who come here tend to stay for several years.

1CNY for a bus to anywhere in the city.
Free public bicycles
8CNY starting price for taxis.
8-12 CNY for a standard cheaper Chinese meal.

Our school has a great reputation as the leading kids training school in the city. We currently have 13 foreign teachers and are looking to add a few more :D Apply soon as these spaces will fill up quickly.

What I want from you:

A nice, friendly personality.

In all honesty, I like to make my job as easy as possible. I like nice, friendly people. Its better for you and better for me! If someone is rude or disrespectful to any of the workers here, foreigners or Chinese, they wont be able to work in our school.

Like kids!

Its so much better if you genuinely like kids. The classes will be enjoyable and the kids will feel the love! Most importantly, you will be happy to work here.

Be responsible

I am so grateful to the majority of teachers I have had over my time here that come to work everyday and do their job. I dont mind if you are sick, thats bound to happen from time to time. But let me know if youre not coming to work! Please dont say nothing at all and leave the kids and parents waiting at school expecting you to turn up. Its not much to ask to be responsible and come to work when you can. If you cant come in, go about it the right way and send me a message! I'll even make sure someone brings you some medicine or I can arrange for you to see a doctor if you wish! :D

I dont care much for what qualifications you have. I think personality and attitude are by far the most important when teaching young kids. Everyone is welcome to apply and I will respond to you as soon as I can!

I much prefer WeChat. The phone APP. Its so useful and I really do seem to employ teachers who add me on wechat more often. I think its because communication is much faster and easier! Please download it and add me. My username is 1516549402

My email is

Please send me a recent photo and tell me how soon you are willing to come out here! (Without this information, I will ignore the application, sorry!)

Hope to hear from you all soon!
