Online teachers come from a variety of backgrounds; stay at home parents, current or former teachers, retirees and people looking for a lifestyle change.
As our students are young experience in early childhood development, teaching or coaching is preferred, but not necessary. Life experience definitely counts.
Our online lessons for kids are part of our blended learning model. All students attend group classes at our English centres in China. They are given the option to take a weekly one-to-one online session. As an online teacher you’ll be a huge part of a student's overall learning journey. You’ll provide focused and individualized attention which allows children to reinforce their skills, gain confidence, and experience a global perspective.
