Blended Learning

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.

Teaching Materials

We provide access to the online classroom, plan the lessons, and prepare the materials for you. Everything is uploaded into the online classroom in advance, based on what each student is currently studying and their parent’s preference. This means you won’t need to spend hours planning or preparing materials. Instead, you can focus your energy and expertise on responding to your student’s individual needs.
