About JadeClass

NOTE: JadeClass can provide the PU letter to teachers coming from outside of China

JadeClass is an English-language training center based in Shanghai that is fully-licensed by the Shanghai Education Commission. We provide enrichment education to bright Chinese students who plan on attending university abroad. Our students vary in age from 6-16 and are carefully screened for English level, behavior, and motivation. We select only the most motivated students and help them achieve success not just in testing but also in adapting to a Western-style learning environment—a process we have been perfecting since our founding in 2008.

Our current team of 20 full and part-time teachers instruct over 1200 students each week in courses as varied as ESL, literature, creative writing, science, mathematics, social studies, and test preparation.

We are seeking talented educators to collaborate with our existing team of teachers and curriculum designers. In particular, this person will have experience teaching middle and high school literature and will be able to help us revise and expand our literature curriculum.


Job Responsibilities

• Ensure a high quality for materials by reviewing and refining existing curriculum
• Develop new, comprehensive courses and materials
• Deliver a wide range of new and existing content
• Help students succeed through constructive grading of their work

At JadeClass, we think you should get paid for the time and energy you devote to your classes, so course development and grading time are built into your schedule. Our class materials are comprehensive which takes away the time spent planning individual lessons, and we have a support team to track student performance, leaving you free to focus on your curriculum objectives and your teaching.

• 16 hours of teaching per week on Saturday and Sunday in back-to-back classes with 15-minute breaks in between

During our 6-week summer session, teachers have their teaching hours on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and their office hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
