Founded in 2004, our schools are some of the best in Xi’an (home of the world famous Terracotta warriors) not just because we say so but evidenced by the numerous awards we have received. We are a 5-star school.
We have the facilities, the infrastructure, and the people to make your teaching experience in China a successful and enjoyable one! Our school facilities are nice with A/C in all rooms. Western course books and teacher books. Class sizes are limited to 16 students. We mainly focus on 7 to 12-year-old students. All foreign teachers will be accompanied by a Chinese Teacher of English in class. Management of class is handled by the Chinese Teachers. Semesters are 20 weeks long which leaves ample time for traveling and such. Teachers teach on average 20 to 24 academic hours a week with 2 days off (usually Monday and Tuesdays) during each 20-week term. Do the math (20 + 20 = 40 weeks of work) How much does that leave for vacation time? ALOT. You will have over 30 days PAID VACATION time! That is not a misprint!
William’s English School is operated by an American with over 16 years of experience teaching and managing in China. A hands-on ownership group ensures fair and honest treatment for all our teachers. We are teachers and we know what it is like to be a teacher in China. When you have a problem, you are not going through various Chinese middle management or a Foreign Director of Studies who is barely 25 years old; you are going straight to the top. Owners here teach just like you! No run-arounds here!
75% of our Chinese Teacher staff has been employed for more than 3 years (stable and great place to work). We only hire full-time Chinese staff to be our Chinese teachers. No part-timers allowed, so rest assured that our teachers are here to work with you!
