We are recruiting online STEM subject teachers with 2+ years teaching experience in a British secondary education context or at an international school following a British curriculum. Teachers will develop learners’ ESOL Communicative Competence in terms of engaging them in argumentative debates, assessing their deep comprehension of reading, and developing their argumentative essay writing skills so as to prepare them for taking Cambridge ESOL exams (FCE, CAE and CPE).
The students are Chinese and aged between 10 – 12 years … but do not be fooled! They have been learning English since early childhood and are at Advanced level. Additionally, they are highly-educated and more intellectually-advanced than you may expect from this age group.
Each online class is 55 minutes long with two students in the session. Classes are delivered in the video conferencing software ‘Zhumu.ME’, which is a very stable, reliable and lightweight tool on your CPU. You would essentially be video conferencing and screen sharing with the students.
You would normally greet the pupils and then screen-share a PDF file which is usually a course book or a graded reader. All resources are provided such as visuals, slides, course books and sample tests published by world-famous publishing companies.
Successful applicants will have:
- Degree in a STEM subject
- 2+ years experience of STEM subject teaching in a British secondary education context or at an international school following a British curriculum .… this is NOT a TEFL job!
- Familiarity with Cambridge ESOL exams – Cambridge ESOL examiners preferred
- Preference is given to holders of post-graduate qualifications (MA, MSc, PhD, PGCE)
