Job description

  • Each school has a slightly different schedule; however a typical full-time schedule consists of about 30 hours per week in the afternoons and evenings. These hours usually include about 20 teaching or contact hours in the classroom and 10 preparation or administrative hours in the office.

    Kid Castle offers three programs for its students:

    • Language school program for students age 9–16 in the afternoons and evenings.
    • Preschool program for young learners in the morning.
    • After-school program for elementary school students (homework assistance conducted in Chinese)

Classes range from 40 minutes to an hour or two hours. Classes include phonics, language arts, songs, stories, grammar, conversation, and plenty of activities. Some branches also offer extra curricular subjects:

  • APEX Program: Math, science, reading comprehension plus extras such as theme, PE, cooking and art.
  • Summer and Winter School: The topics for special vacation classes change each year, previous topics include finances, folk tales and nature.
  • Event Preparation: Events include talent shows, spelling bees, and various performances.
  • Festival: During celebrations, such as Chinese New Year and Christmas, students participate in related activities.

A combination of teamwork, training, and years of experience have helped us to ensure a friendly and professional environment for our staff.

Each clean, colorful Kid Castle branch has a stocked library, a room of modern computers, and a teaching resources area where teachers can find the teacher’s guides, resource books, games, and any other teaching materials they need.

Classrooms usually have between 8 and 20 students. For some classes, especially those with young learners, a co-teacher is also present in the classroom. The co-teacher will have other responsibilities for the class (usually communicating with parents, checking homework, completing administrative duties, etc.). For most classes, the foreign teacher’s main objective is to strengthen the students’ English speaking and listening skills.
