The answer to this question depends heavily on the type of contract you decide to sign.
Essentially, a 25-hour teacher’s schedule might look like this:
Saturday – Up to 8 hours of classroom time – anytime from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM teaching kids from 6 to 17 years old. Classes are two hours with a break in the middle and time for lunch. Lower levels are taught by a Western teacher and a Chinese Teacher. Sunday – Same as Saturday. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday OR Tuesday and Thursday – One class of adults in the morning. One or two classes in the late afternoon. MWF adult classes are usually 2 hours. The classes are usually 1.5 hours.
A 15 hour teacher might have a Saturday and Sunday schedule similar to that described above with an English Corner on one day during the week.
A 20 hour teacher would have a Saturday and Sunday similar to the schedule described above as well as one TTH adult class or a full afternoon of classes on Wednesday.
The above examples are not rigid rules; each school may vary schedules slightly depending on local market needs. Teaching schedules are set by the Location Manager so any scheduling requests such as certain days off or vacation time are made with the school. Teachers may be scheduled for a substitution class, an outside company class, or other events such as English Corners to fulfill contract hour requirements.
