We are looking for teachers with the professionalism and patience required to teach young learners at our well designed and equipped school in Tianjin. You will lead class for our students aged 3 to 15 years old using a variety of resources but most importantly applying suitable methods for individual competency. We provide on-going training and support to aid your ability in adapting techniques to better elicit student engagement for effective teaching. We are looking for teachers to not only help students develop their language ability, but also be a leading example and mentor to show them the right character development. Being responsible, on time, creative, and an outside the box problem solver are a few of the ways our teachers lead by example.

Our class sizes are limited a very minimum of 4 to 6 students to allow teachers to focus on students’ individual learning needs and foster self confidence. Encouraging a native English learning environment is part of our curriculum structure where students can quickly improve through doing rather than just reading. Teaching materials we currently use include Pearson, Mcgrawhill and Cambridge YLE. Yinglan International Education was founded in 2008 and has now expanded to include more than 200 foreign teachers.

Tianjin – The city
Tianjin is located 85 miles east of Beijing, near the coast. The capital can be reached in half an hour by fast train. As China’s third largest city with a population of over 10 million people, Tianjin has a rich history and has witnessed many important events since it was given its name in 1404. Evidence of its history is still visible in the old British and Italian concessions, the port and European architectures.

The best known scenic spots and historical sites include the Panshan Scenery Area, the Park on the Water, the Garden of Tranquility, the Palace of Heavenly Empress and even a section of the Great Wall of China at the Huangya Pass.
