Your initial application

Upon receipt of your initial application to teach English in China, we will thoroughly review your credentials and upon your suitability we will reach out to you via email and invite you to an informal Skype consultation.

The Skype consultation

The aim of this consultation is to let us know your priorities, your wishes and your career aspirations. Details will include letting us know which province or city you would ideally like to work in, the age group that you may like to teach and the type of school that you would prefer.

Providing us with as much information as possible at this early stage will ensure we find you a perfect match, making your transition to China as smooth as possible.

Formal interview with a school authority.

After the consultation, we will send your information to the most appropriate schools for you in your given province or city. Should they wish to interview you do not panic, most of the educational institutions ask standard questions and teaching related questions. If you prefer teaching young students, they may ask you to sing a song or do a small video teaching demo class. Please do not worry we can help you by giving you suggestions so that you can fully prepare yourself beforehand and therefore relaxed during the interview.

Upon completion of the interview the school will contact us and should they wish to hire you, they will send us your contract which we will discuss and pass on to you.

Signing the contract document

We will help you understand the contract so that you do not miss any crucial key points. After you are totally satisfied with the contract terms and conditions, we will then ask you to sign and scan the document and return it to us. We will then send this document to the school’s visa department for availing the legal Z work visa.

Your arrangements upon arrival in China.

We will liaise with our school partners to ensure that you are picked up from the airport and for them to arrange your hotel stay during your first few days.

The schools will assist you in setting up a bank account, phone plan and other essential items you will initially need.

TipTop ESL will always be on hand should you have any worries or concerns. Our aim is to ensure that your transition to China will go as smooth as it possibly can.
