From the first point of contact to the day you step foot into your school, you will be a part of a process that we work tirelessly to streamline and make more efficient for a better hiring experience. 


What age group do you like to teach? Do you want to take part in the Chinese public school system or perhaps to help students with their after-school studies? Would you rather have your weekend on Tuesday and Wednesday or Saturday and Sunday?  We have so many different types of schools to choose from; it is easy to find just the right fit for you. 


We know where you want to live is as important as where you want to work. As an SDE teacher, you can have your pick of location in several cities within China. Enjoy Shenzhen's modern edge,  along with easy treks to Hong Kong and Macau. Live in China's capital Beijing, and be minutes from major historical sites and tourist attractions. What about Wuhan, capital of Hubei province, with its unique historical sites? Moreover, there is Chengdu, in Sichuan province, famous for both food and pandas. Take your pick, and we will find a way to get you there.


A critical factor that sets our company apart is our support system. From the second you talk with someone from SDE, throughout your time working for us, we have a team to support you. Need visa assistance? We have a team for that. Think your teaching skills need a little brushing up? We have a team for that.   Need to get a new apartment or help with some translations? We have got a team to help you with that, too, and more! We know life can be difficult in another country, so we want to make things as easy for you as we can.


Speaking of living in another country, we also know that you might be very interested in the history and culture of China, as well as the language. That is why we offer cultural activities and trips throughout the time that you work with us, as well as Mandarin Chinese lessons.  


We strive to outdo ourselves, year after year to give you the best experience you can have while teaching and living in China.
