Requirements for Online English Teachers:

Are you a native English speaker? Do you have 5-8 hours a week available to teach online? Do you want to make a difference in the lives of children? Then why not consider teaching Chinese children English with New Century Online?

Priority will be given to applicants who have teaching credentials and experience teaching.

Application for Online English Teachers

Applying for this job has a step by step process.

  1. Fill out and submit the online application which you can find here.
  1. After receiving your application, we will contact you within a week to let you know whether or not we will offer you an interview and the opportunity to do a demo class.
  1. If you pass the demo class, we will give you a short training after which you will need to do a second demo class. If you pass the second demo, New Century Online will offer you a contract for six months. After you complete your first contract, New Century Online will do a formal teacher’s assessment at which point you may be eligible for higher pay and a long-term contract. 

Payment for Online Teachers:

Each new teacher will start with an hourly salary of $18-20. The teacher is paid by the half-hour lesson. The salary will be paid by direct deposit into the teacher’s bank account once a month.

Teaching Schedule:

Just a reminder, New Century Online requires a minimum of 5 hours each week. Also keep in mind that with the time zone difference, you will need to be available during hours that children in China can have class. Although the schedule is flexible, most of your hours will need to fall between 6-10 pm Beijing time. Depending on where you live in North America, this may fall anywhere between 3 am to 10 am, so make sure to calculate the time difference correctly before signing a contract.
