Hong N's success has been largely due to its philosophy of pairing an experienced Chinese teacher with a Native English speaker to provide the most authentic learning experience for the children while providing valuable teaching experience to the non-Chinese teacher. All classes are taught on an interactive, interest-oriented western style of teaching, focused on inspiring the children to speak and participate in a pure English environment.
In order to provide our teachers with the ability to explore the beautiful city of SuZhou and the ability to do things they love like hiking, running, reading, shopping, etc. Teachers are only required to work 20 hours a week with a monthly salary of 8,000RMB including rent or 9,000RMB without rent.
In addition, we provide our teachers with the ability to earn overtime pay (in some cases an additional 10,000 RMB a month), free private Chinese lessons (mostly one on one classes), and partial transportation subsidy (up to 200 RMB a month) .
In order to ease the transition to Suzhou, Hong N provides free accommodations to all our foreign teachers. Accommodations ranges from a private room shared with up to 3 other foreign teachers to hotel style studios for one.
