Private Schools in China Seeking Educators
Posted 10/18/13

Private schools in China have expressed an interest in hiring foreign teachers to teach in their International Education Departments. Many Chinese schools now have International Education Departments. The curriculum is Western, not Chinese, and the teachers are mostly foreigners. This is a growing trend because a large number of Chinese students want to study in overseas universities - primarily American and Canadian. The International Education curriculum is a means to that end. These schools are interested in hiring experienced teachers of all subjects, including retired teachers who would be interested in living and working in China for short or long term periods.

The educators we seek would not be teaching ESL classes, they'd teach their own field of expertise.

If interested please contact Justin Feigelman at:
