Workload for teachers

Unlike many other jobs in an office or in the service industry, working in education has its own rewards and demands. Very few occupations offer the satisfaction of successfully reaching a child and seeing them learn from your teaching. With this satisfaction also comes the demand of being an educator. Being a teacher means your job is not finished when the bell rings. For many of you this position will have more work outside of “working hours” than you are used to. There is no worse situation than a teacher who is not prepared for the workload and then gives his or her students less than what they deserve. The educator's first responsibility is to their students, and the best educators will give that needed “extra” effort.

We want our teachers to experience China and make the most of their time here but also be aware that it's more than an extended vacation- it's a job.
We equip you with thorough training, support and a full curriculum to help you along, but realize providing a quality education doesn't come without effort. After all, a cake doesn't bake itself even if you have all of the ingredients!

Marking homework, preparing lessons and proper grading and assessment of each student takes time and will take up a lot of time when you're first getting started. A 35 hour work-week may not seem like much at first glance on paper, but when you factor in learning how to do your new job, getting a handle on classroom management, preparation and homework grading, and learning your new job will simply take time. But, like anything else you do, the more you do it, the better and more efficient you become. Time management and efficiency are key components to teaching, especially when you are teaching various classes at different levels of ability. We realize these skills do take time to build, develop and improve and don't come over night.

If you've ever worked a full time job, you know what we're talking about. If this is your first serious job, you're in for a good surprise! It might be overwhelming at first, but it will strengthen skills you didn't know you had. Remember that at the end of the day, job satisfaction comes from being good at what you do and we want to help you achieve that. By giving as much as your students deserve, you will learn what true job satisfaction is. The dream of all successful teachers is to hear a student suddenly state, “Now I understand!” when the bell rings. For many of you this position will have more work outside of “working hours” than you are used to. There is no worse situation than a teacher who is not prepared for the workload and then gives his or her students less than what they deserve.
