ESL Job in Taiwan

Starting in late February, 2023.

WHO WE ARE:  Founded in 1998, we have English language institutes in Changhua, Taiwan. We teach the four skills of listening, reading, speaking, and writing to youths up to eighteen years old.  We have had considerable success in preparing students for the General English Proficiency Test (GEPT), which is recognized by the Ministry of Education in Taiwan.

WHERE WE ARE: We have three locations in Changhua, a mid-sized city which is bordered by Bagua Mountain, where residents can enjoy hiking, biking, tennis, golf, swimming, bird-watching, etc. One of the largest free-standing statues of Buddha in Southeast Asia is on Bagua Mountain.

Changhua is only a 20-minute train ride north to Taichung, which has a population of over a million people and is full of wonderful restaurants, department stores, and parks.

Our branches have the advantage of being centrally located on the western plains of the island.  With the High Speed Rail (HSR), the northern and southern cities of Taiwan are now easily accessible within one hour and the beautiful beaches of Kenting are only three hours away.

WHO WE SEEK:  In addition to our Taiwanese staff, we employ native English speakers with four-year degrees in ANY field.  Experience in teaching, coaching, or mentoring is preferred.

WHAT TEACHERS DO:  Teachers have a mix of group classes and tutorials from different ages and levels. Teachers do not teach the same age group, day-in day-out. Each class has at least one native speaker teacher and one Taiwanese teacher of English. These two teachers are not in the class at the same time, but coordinate classes together.  Foreign teachers must write comments on report cards and grade essays, but most of the homework is graded by the Taiwanese teachers/ staff.

WHAT WE OFFER:  *Five-day-a-week schedule:  The starting base hourly pay for group classes is $NT700 & a guaranteed MINIMUM of 20 teaching hrs./wk. There are opportunities for extra hours/pay and yearly increases.

HOURS: Hours are similar to a middle-shift.  Teachers enjoy having their mornings free for their personal activities and exploring Taiwan.  Teachers come in one hour before their first class of the day to prepare for lessons and conclude after their last class.  Mon. through Fri.; Tues. -Sat.; Or a six-day option.

OTHER BENEFITS:

* Advances on pay to assist in start-up costs.

* NT $700/ class hr.

* Yearly increases

* End-of-year bonus

* Our teachers have also participated in ESL research studies/ curriculum design/voice recordings, summer camps, etc. (for extra pay).

-FREE airport pick-up, lodging for COVID self-monitoring period & orientation

-We pay the major portion (based on the official government-provided salary chart) of your national health insurance.

-PAID five-day practice teaching during training period, $NT550/class hour, when time is spent in front of any class

-Pre-planned lessons, but a flexible curriculum

-Assistance in processing and sponsorship of work visa & Alien Residence Card (ARC)

-Reduced Rent- housing in the Teachers’ House (Only approx. US$233/mo.). If residing in the “Teachers’ House,” the remainder of first month’s rent is FREE! All utilities except electric are FREE!

-Assistance in setting up a bank account

-Guidance in filing and reclaiming government taxes.  Income taxes are 18% for the first 182 days in Taiwan, but then recalculated at 5-6% based on annual earnings and you are eligible for a REBATE of the difference.

A SUCCESSFUL APPLICANT WILL BE:

*At least a Bachelor’s degree holder from an accredited university in ANY field.  TESOL Certificate

*One who has experience working with children (teaching, mentoring, tutoring, coaching experience).

*We desire energetic teachers for lively classes.   (FYI: Our current staff and faculty are generally non-smokers).

*Flexible in accepting periodic schedule changes.

*One who will commit to AT LEAST one year in Taiwan.

*Has a genuine interest in learning Mandarin Chinese and/or Taiwanese:  It gives a teacher a sense of how difficult it is to learn a language, as well as an appreciation of the culture, (not to mention facilitate living in Taiwan).

*Sociable and friendly to students, staff, parents, and fellow teachers.

We also have testimonials of past teachers and pictures of our schools available upon request.
