Hi. I’m David from Starbugs English Academy. I am looking to fill 2 full- time positions at our English Learning Centers – 1 in Jiangyin/Wuxi, 1 in Shanghai. Both positions begin ASAP – you could be here working and earning in under a month!
JIANGYIN: 20 hours a week teaching plus 5 office hours a week, so you will have ample free time. No more than 10 students in a class. 5-day schedule with 2 days off every week. 30 days paid vacation every year plus all National Holidays – total of about 6 weeks a year of vacation and Holidays, so you will have time to travel and explore Asia or go home and see your friends and family! A 1-bedroom apartment close to school will be provided for you. Basic health Insurance and a Z Resident visa are provided. Meals provided on the weekends, which is when the majority of our classes are. 13,000-16,000 RMB a month to start (about $2000USD), with low taxes and NO RENT.
Jiangyin is a small city attached to the larger city of Wuxi about 2 hours west of Shanghai. It is a relatively wealthy city with some Western restaurants and a few large Western-style malls. It is near enough to Shanghai for a day trip, but without Shanghai prices: you can eat a fresh and delicious Chinese meal here for about $3.00 a person! You can live very well here on 100 RMB a day, allowing you to SAVE $1000-$1500USD A MONTH for travel, shopping, saving, or paying back your student loans! Our staff is very friendly and will assist you with everything you need. The work environment is casual and fun, the owners are wonderful and extremely generous people, the Director of Education (me) is from America, and our kids are very cute and eager to learn. The vast majority of our students are 6-10 years old, although we do have a few classes for 3-5 year-olds and for middle school/high school students.
Requirements: BA/BS required, TEFL certificate preferred (or be willing to get one). ATTITUDE is more important than EXPERIENCE! I’m happy to train the right person. Must be energetic and fun and love children – we play a lot and you must be willing to be silly and play with the kids. Must be responsible – my two biggest sins are not showing up and not bringing your game to every class. No drama queens or prima donnas; racists, sexists, homophobes, and Trump supporters need not apply. Recent college graduates and women are strongly encouraged to apply. US and Canadian citizens only.
SHANGHAI: 24 teaching hours a week plus some office time. Class size is limited to 20. All National Holidays off. No housing is provided, but we will help you find a place (a 1-bedroom in the city is about 5,000 RMB and a 2-bedroom around 8,000 RMB). Basic health insurance and a Z Resident visa are provided. 17,000 – 24,000 RMB a month to start.
Shanghai is the biggest city in the world with around 25 million people in it – think New York City, London, or Tokyo in terms of excitement level (and prices). Very diverse and international city with pretty much anything you could ever want: restaurants, clubs, theater, art, nightlife, etc. If you want to live in a large vibrant living city, Shanghai is the place! We have 8 schools in Shanghai, so you may be at multiple locations during the week. Students are aged 4-15. A good work environment in a great city.
Requirements: BA/BS and TEFL Certificate required; some experience preferred but will train the right person. Must be responsible, energetic, fun, and flexible. Must be a native English speaker from an English-speaking nation.
ABOUT STARBUGS: Our company just celebrated its 10th Birthday. We focus on phonics and literacy: teaching our students to speak naturally with correct pronunciation and to read as much as possible. Every STARBUGS school has an extensive English library and this focus on the power and fun of reading is one of the things that sets us apart from other language schools. Our owner is very Western in his outlook and he trusts the people he hires and treats them very well – no “Chinese Boss” BS here! We have nine centers (8 in Shanghai, 1 in Jiangyin) and are growing every year. We are very proud of what we do and feel we are easily among the best language schools for children in China. Many of our teachers have been here for several years, so that tells you we are a good place to work. Check out our website at www.starbugs.cn (you can switch to English language at the upper right next to the search bar).
TO APPLY: Please send a resume/CV and short cover letter along with a copy of your passport page and a recent color photograph (casual ok) to:
Profdvd@gmail.com . Please include an email address. Interviews will be conducted via SKYPE.
