  • Description


    Love kids? Native English speaker? Welcome to Shanghai! My name is Molly, I am American and my husband, Daniel, is Shanghainese. We have a five year old son of our own, and an English language center full of 3-8 year olds. We are looking for native English speakers to spend time and teach at one of our language centers here in Song Jiang district, Shanghai!

    You must enjoy children, be enthusiastic, reliable, and a ready smile is always ready! Extra points if you can sing, dance, dj, yoga, paint, act, or juggle! We are about quality, not quantity. Everyone is different, everyone has something to offer - and we love that! We keep things fun and engage our kids so that they want to speak English - no flash cards, no strict memorization, no forcing. Dancing, acting, and arts instead. So come on out, join the fun, and enrich our world one conversation at a time! (We'd love to welcome everyone, but unfortunately we can only accept native English speakers.)
