Teaching Positions in Zunyi, Guizhou, China

Posted By: Forsun Education <[email protected]>
Date: Wednesday, 11 October 2017, at 12:39 p.m.

About the job:
The position would primarily involve teaching kindergarten through primary school students. We are a training school for people of all ages, therefore some high school or adult/conversational level classes may be added to the schedule in the future. There may be an overlap in duties as the school expands. We provide help from fluent bilingual Chinese teaching assistants in all classes. We will provide quality materials, guidance, and support for planning the curriculum. We use the Letís Go (for younger students) and American Headway (older students) textbook series, which are a step above the usual texts. We try to focus on developing strong verbal communication skills because the local public schools are largely lacking in this skill set. We are not just in it for the money; we genuinely strive to give our students a quality education. As such, we do not restrict learning to the classroom. Often we take students out for lunch or to play sports to affect a more natural learning environment. We are a small company, so we allow more leeway with lesson and curriculum planning for the benefit of the students and the teachers.

We never overload our teachers with classes; most likely teachers see around four classes a day, with an absolute max of six classes on the busiest days (generally weekends). We guarantee two consecutive days off a week, and we are flexible with accommodating vacation and travel days. In general we are much more reasonable to work with than many local employers. We like to have fun, and our work environment reflects this. Our staff is young and sociable, and everyone here gets along really well, so we hope to continue with this sense of camaraderie!

The job includes quite nice, conveniently located free accommodations complete with all utilities including high speed internet and either help with incoming flights OR a 1,000 USD contract completion bonus. We will handle ALL visa costs and logistics. The monthly pay is anywhere from 9,500-15,000RMB depending upon experience and contract duration, which is the equivalent of 20,000-25,000+RMB in Shanghai/Beijing/etc. Teachers can easily save 75% of their income or more and live very comfortably. We also go on several team building trips throughout the year paid in full by the company. Get paid to travel.

About you:
This is not your typical training school! Unlike many training schools in Shanghai and Beijing, at FORSUN teachers are not workhorses expected to routinely regurgitate American culture and language. Chinese people of all ages are here not only to learn English, but to make meaningful connections with a cultural perspective rarely found in Guizhou province. Positive energy, enthusiasm, an outgoing personality and a good sense of adventure are all essential. We desire someone with a love for young children (obviously) and are invested in delivering a quality educational experience. We strongly prefer candidates with at least two years teaching experience, and we would give preference to holders of TEFL certifications or relevant education degrees. If this sounds like you, please contact me ASAP!

About Zunyi:
Get off the beaten path and see the real China! This city of around 2 million is much less westernized than most. Zunyi is still thriving, but has kept a lot of its local flavor. The locals are known for their relaxed and friendly attitudes, socializing, and eating delicious food. As such, this is an excellent place to practice your Mandarin. The old town here was where Mao was first elected leader of the CPC and has kept much of its old character. Set amongst striking mountains, Zunyi is adjacent to impressive natural scenery and various outdoor activities. It never gets too hot in the summer or cold enough to snow in the winter. It is extremely affordable compared to most parts of the country. A meal from among the infinite street side restaurants average around 8-10RMB (6.8RMB = $1). Groceries, taxis, etc. are similarly much cheaper than in the coastal cities. It is impossibly easy to save.

I am the Foreign Director from the U.S. and have lived in China for several years now. Our Chinese owner is also American educated, so we can offer better-than-average support and communication here. No confusion, no bait-and-switch, no misdirection. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have about the job or the city, Iím quick to respond!
