A lot of people are looking for adventure when they think about traveling abroad to teach English in China, but when people arrive the stress of the process taxes a lot of people. At American Eagle Institute China, we have found that those who think positively and are able to relax and see the good in a situation are the ones who succeed at teaching English in China. Inside the classroom, a confident attitude and a belief that students are capable of learning and excelling, are the keys to what we look for in our teachers at American Eagle Institute

What kind of teachers are American Eagle China looking for?
Unorganized teachers create unorganized students. At American Eagle Institute China, we ideally want a teacher who makes efficient use of their time and moves in a planned and systematic way. This also requires enthusiasm, and an understanding of what motivates students.
Sometimes a teacher may not have the best planned classes, but their enthusiasm is so infectious that students are easily caught up in it and love the class. Previous experience with children or teaching is also a huge plus, even if it’s coaching or mentoring. A TEFL certificate also shows the candidate is willing to spend money on their own professional development and that they are motivated to get into the field (rather than teaching simply being the sole available way to live into Asia).
An applicant with a diverse workplace background can show adaptability. Not only does changing countries require adaption, but in teaching itself seldom is one day like the next. Willing to alter plans and directions is a necessity in teaching and in living abroad, especially in China where often things will change ‘last-minute’ by Western standards.
If not humorous, at least not completely humorless! Teachers are not
comedians, but especially with 3-6 year olds we need teachers who are willing to be a little childish and understand what its like to be a child learning a new language.
In order to apply at American Eagle Institute, teachers must hold at least a 4-year Bachelor’s degree and have it authenticated by their local Chinese embassy and be TEFL qualified. We accept new teachers in some of our locations, but for Shenzhen, Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen, teachers will need two years minimum of English teaching experience on their CV.
Nationality: Canadian, American, British, South African, New Zealand, Australian
(Candidates must be a native English speaker)
