Teach with Ellson Education in a relaxed learning and teaching environment that emphasizes learning through fun!
Seeking teachers for our locations in Beijing, Shijiazhuang, Chengdu, Handan, and Xintai.
As a teacher with Ellson, you'll be teaching full-immersion English using our Pearson Education and Cambridge University curriculums. The curriculums are interdisciplinary, so you'll have the chance to lead your kids through subjects like Social Studies, Geography, Science, and more! Engage your children through the use of interactive SmartBoard materials, projects, games, songs, and our specially curated Book-Book Libraries through Pearson Education and University of Oxford Press.
One of the great benefits of being an Ellson teacher is the freedom you're given to develop your lessons and classroom! Because we emphasize Project-Based Learning (PBL) as a way to implement our Content and Language Integrated Learning methodology (CLIL), Ellson classrooms are synonymous with fun and exploration. Bring your passions and ideas into your classes to transform the learning space into an exciting area where kids develop their creativity and critical thinking skills while they learn! New to teaching? No problem! We'll train and give you the tools necessary to be comfortable in the classroom and succeed.
Besides your normal classes, from time to time you’ll also join your Chinese coworkers in fun demo classes, aimed at showing new parents and students what they can expect from an Ellson classroom. Please feel free to share your own ideas! As we want to make our classes available to students with varying schedules, educators will also have the option of leading classes scheduled on Monday and Tuesday evenings in the event they wish to earn an extra 200 RMB per class.
