Tuesday, January 15, 2019

Canada International College, a well-established private High School in Toronto, is looking for a qualified teacher to teach at our Chinese sister school (a key High School). The teacher will be responsible to teach English (ESL) to middle/high school students. Classes will be based on the Ontario curriculum. The teacher will be compensated for a minimum of 30 teaching hours per week ($24/hr), but will likely teach less (15-20hours). This allows our teachers time to explore and enjoy China. Work visa, airfare, health insurance, accommodation and any transport to and from the airport will be paid for by the school. A paid, 2 day “tourist” trip to Beijing is also included. There will be the possibility of a teaching position at our Toronto school, upon return. This is a great opportunity for any teacher looking to further their teaching experience and explore China.
