William''s English School is going on our 9th year and is a great place to work for any foreign teacher of English. Our school is one of the best in Xi''an (home of the world famous Terra-cotta warriors) not just because we say so but evidenced by the numerous awards received by the Government Education Bureau of our District. We have the facilities, the infrastructure, and the people to make your teaching experience in China a successful and enjoyable one! Our new school facilities are only a year old with A/C and multimedia in all rooms. (moved from our old location a year ago) Class sizes are limited to 16 students. We mainly focus on 7 to 12 year old students but also teach high school students as well. All foreign teachers will be accompanied by a Chinese Teacher of English in class. Management of the class is handled by the Chinese Teachers. Semesters are 20 weeks long which leaves ample time for vacations and such. Teachers teach on average 20 to 26 academic hours a week with 2 days off (usually Monday and Tuesdays) during each 20 week term.
William''s English School is operated by an American with over 10 years of experience teaching and managing in China. A hands on ownership group ensures fair and honest treatment for all our teachers. We are teachers and we know what it is like to be a teacher in China. When you have a problem, you are not going through various Chinese middle management or a Foreign Director of Studies who has limited authority; you are going straight to the top. Our owner also teaches just like you! No run-arounds here! You need something done... we get it done!
75% of our Chinese Teacher staff has been employed for more than 3 years (stable and great place to work). We only hire full-time Chinese staff. Many of our teachers are also mothers! (mature individuals who care about their careers) We do not hire temp teachers like many schools.
