Time frame: fall semester (September – December).
Placement/job description: The teacher would be teaching English. Likely to be placed in a class with one of the teachers who was at TVHS. They (Tianjin 41 High School) is interested in having native English speakers help their students hear and speak English with a native speaker. Exactly how the classroom instruction would be organized would have to be worked out between the American teacher and the Tianjin teacher – likely it would be a co-teaching model – along side the Tianjin English teacher. Their students (and teachers) are excellent writers and readers of English, their speaking/listening skills are not as high as they would like.
Living situation: The teacher would be staying in the school at #41 High School in their own space – it is a boarding school and has dorms for teachers. The food served there is quite good. The accommodations are adequate & comfortable.
Expenses: We would be able to cover the travel expenses, and a small stipend. Room and board is covered. Health insurance would not be covered. There would be opportunities for the teacher to engage in private English tutoring in the evenings/weekends for income, that would have to be developed upon arrival.
