Reviews From Current & Previous Teachers
“I've been with the company for almost 5 months at this point. The transition from Europe to China was very smooth, thanks to the HR team. The school is very welcoming and friendly. I felt at home from the very first day I arrived. I was provided with accommodation until I was able to find my own living arrangements. The classes are well equipped and clearly structured, making it very easy for a teacher to slot into a routine, regardless of experience. I am very pleased with the rate of pay and appreciate the ability to receive bi-yearly salary increases depending on performance.” - Kieran - Beijing
“By working at Smart Kids you work not only with great people, but you also constantly meet the greatest of kids, and that honestly makes it the most rewarding of experiences. I highly recommend anyone interested and that can, to come &join!” -Kenia - Beijing
“Working at Smart Kids has given me the unique opportunity to work and live internationally, while also putting away money for the future. Watching the kids I've taught grow and learn has been one of the most rewarding feelings I've ever encountered in the workplace. This, along with the lifelong friends I've made with Chinese and foreign staff alike has given me a teaching experience I wouldn't trade for anything.”- Robert - Beijing
