If you don't mind disclosing what your work situation is (age of students, class size, all at one school or are you "farmed out," holidays, etc. and minimum qualifications) and salary, I would appreciate it — I am interested to know what the "average" is these days in Chengdu. When I taught at a vocational school in 2005-2006 the working hours were low and holidays long and we were paid 4,000 a month for 12 months plus international roundtrip plane ticket and a pretty nice studio apartment off campus. But now cost of living has risen a lot since then so I guess salaries have risen somewhat as well?]]>

If you've been with a company for a year or two, you should be on 200 per hour.

For private IELTS classes you can expect to make 450 for an hour and a half class.

Bare in mind, training schools like EF normally charge students about 100 per student per hour to be in a kids class of up to 12. Other training schools have been known to charge students up for 800 per hour for an adults one to one class.

What you should really do is get in with a small school that you trust, help them with the promotion and running of the school. If you can do this you should be able to negotiate splitting the fees rather than just an hourly rate.

I post jobs from time to time so check my profile if you're interested.]]>
