Ellson Education is a private English training school for children based in China and founded by educators. Currently we are partnered with Pearson Education (the foremost leader and distributor of educational materials in the world), Winthrop University in SC, Trinity College of London, and University of Oxford. We know that kids learn and retain knowledge best when they are engaged and having fun, so our classrooms are always full of laughter and smiles!
We use the CLIL methodology (Content and Language Integrated Learning) and the Pearson Education curriculum set to ensure our kids receive the very best international level quality education. CLIL incorporates Reading Based Learning (RBL) and Project Based Learning (PBL), combining literature exploration, which encourages self-discovery and critical thinking, with content driven activities like crafts, games, and performances to ensure kids absorb and retain knowledge while having fun!
What's more is that we love our teachers! Happy teachers make for happy classrooms, so we do our best to make sure our foreign teachers have a great support base and the necessary training to make their time in China comfortable and memorable.
•Our branches teach ages 3 to 14
•Class size from 8 to 12 kids
•You’ll be joined in classes by a certified Chinese teacher who will act as your TA
•2 weeks training to make sure you are comfortable and prepared for your new classes
You will be teaching classes in English using our Pearson Education curriculum. The curriculum is interdisciplinary, so you'll have the chance to share awesome knowledge about everything from Social Studies to Science, and more! Though you'll follow a monthly schedule with the curriculum, we encourage our teachers to engage their creativity just as we encourage our students to! Ellson classrooms are all about learning through fun, so games, projects, performances, and songs are all encouraged.
Besides your normal classes, from time to time you’ll also be asked to join your Chinese coworkers in some fun marketing classes, aimed at showing new parents and students what they can expect from an Ellson classroom. Please feel free to share your own ideas!
