I`ve just been offered a position in Qingdao and have a number of concerns, hence I need some help. I have been teaching Business English for 9 years in Brazil, mostly in-company, for multinationals. I have also consulted schools and business on suitable pedagogical aspects of teaching and learning, methodologies, blended learning strategies and theory.
I do not have a degree but I do hold a CELTA certificate, and I am a TOEIC proctor. Before teaching I was a chef, and worked in hospitality and prior to this I owned a transport company.
So, I am wondering. What is a reasonable salary for someone with my qualifications and experience. And, should I expect holiday pay, medical insurance, airfare reimbursement etc.
I am really searching for a guide to teaching in Qingdao, and what I can expect. Certainly, I simply wish to be fair and reasonable.
Your advice is appreciated in advance.
