ESL Jobs in Beijing

We are now looking for dedicated music teachers to teach at our well-established elementary and middle school in Beijing.

Our international private school was originally founded in 2005, and over the years the school’s reputation grew along with enrollment demands as we expanded to include students nationwide. We have a teaching staff of over 360 that serve over 1,350 students from Pre-K to Grade 12. Additionally, we now we have a newly established campus to meet the huge demand for English education in Beijing to prepare students for international paths.

The school has always been at the forefront in China for educational and cutting-edge instructional strategies. We implement the latest educational practices while utilizing modern facilities and a highly trained team of foreign and Chinese administrators, teachers and staff. Teachers will be teaching music to our students aged 6 to 14 on a Monday to Friday basis.

Our uniqueness is centered in our philosophy and approach to education, namely, a very strong emphasis on providing a holistic bilingual and bicultural education to the students who attend our school. While it may sound like a cliché, the school genuinely has a very family feel about it. This is highlighted by the way we care for not only the children but also each other. If you truly want to experience China and the pleasure of teaching Chinese students in an international setting, then joining us will no doubt be an extraordinary life experience and career for you.

English Track & Chinese Track

We offer 2 types of tracks – English Track and Chinese Track, focusing respectively on preparing students for international school, overseas studies or if they are interested in pursuing Jung kao in middle school they will still be adequately prepared. The Chinese track programs are centered on training students for the top universities in Beijing and throughout China. The major difference is that the courses on the English Track are conducted 90% in English.

Teach English in Beijing

Beijing, capital of the People’s Republic of China, is the nation’s political, economic, cultural, educational and international trade and communication center. Located in northern China, close to the port city of Tianjin and partially surrounded by Hebei province, Beijing continues to be an exciting place for all things music, fashion and art with plenty of events and shows to attend.

There is a thriving expat community in Beijing, with the Sanlitun area being a popular destination for both expats and trendy locals to mix and mingle over drinks. One of the most important landmarks in the city is Tiananmen Square. This is the world’s largest public square and a must see for all visitors from abroad and from other places in China.
