About CLASS100

CLASS100 partners with public schools across China to deliver real-time ESL lessons to K12 students. Designed as a dual-teacher classroom—one foreign teacher to teach and one Chinese teacher to assist—we are able to help Chinese students learn English in a much more fun and efficient way.

Application

Submit your resume at our official website or email it to recruitment@class100.com. You can also find us on Indeed or contact us through our CLASS100 Teacher Recruitment Facebook group.

Our platform works best with Internet providers in China, South-east Asia, North America, and the UK. As such, we prefer for our candidates to live in those regions and countries.

Step 3) Training: After passing the interview/demo class stage, our teaching administrators will provide teacher candidates with a 3 hour training on the teaching platform, on the use of TPR (Total Physical Response) in the classroom, and other applicable skills and pertinent information.

Step 4) Sign Teacher Contract, Upload Mandatory Documents & Complete Background Check: The information teacher candidates provide help us comply with our online safety and security standards and to create a professional environment for CLASS100 to manage teachers appropriately. (Note: teacher candidates are required to closely read and acknowledge complete understanding of all aspects of the contract before signing. Signed contracts denote total agreement and understanding by all parties. )

Teacher start dates depend upon individual teacher availability. Starting dates and times can be negotiated at the time of the interview and training with our recruiters and trainers.

Interview

The interview is conducted on our CLASS100 portal at psc.class100.com/login?role=teacher. After a teacher applicant is scheduled for an interview, simply log on to the portal on the day of the interview and make sure to enter the classroom on time!

Teacher candidates should look presentable, should be energetic, and should use TPR as much as possible throughout the demo lesson. Please encourage the students (two of our staff) to feel engaged and let them talk as much as possible.

Please take a look at our Teaching Performance Indicators(TPI) which highlight all areas that candidate demo lessons are evaluated on.

Becoming a Teacher

Each lesson lasts for 30 minutes.

No, CLASS100’s curriculum team designs lesson materials for every class. However, teachers must prepare for class by reviewing the class materials beforehand. The teacher may preview class materials in the classroom on the teacher portal 6-12 hours in advance. Teachers are encouraged to incorporate props, supports, and teaching aids to accompany each lesson.

30-40 public school students.

In most cases, yes. However, in some instances CLASS100 must make adjustments according to feedback from individual schools.

CLASS100 has developed its own education platform to facilitate our ESL classes.

Teachers must contact CLASS100 support team immediately and wait for a response.

Schedule

Monday to Friday, 7:30 am to 12:00 pm, 1:30-4:30 pm (BJT). Note: teachers are responsible for adjusting their local time zone to coordinate with BJT time requirements. For example, in New York USA (EST), the regular time is 12 hours behind BJT; during DST, New York is 13 hours behind BJT. This means that a 7:30 am Monday morning class in Beijing, actually begins at 7:30 pm Sunday, in New York.

Teachers should submit availability for working hours to CLASS100 each month; CLASS100 will coordinate classes and provide students to teachers. Working hours (availability) should be a minimum 9h/3days per week (the same 3-hour block of time for each day; e.g., 7:30 - 10:30 Monday through Friday).


Payment

Pay is distributed by CLASS100 on the 18th every month (please expect a change due to weekends or holidays).

As an independent contractor, teacher payment, or “service fee”, is calculated on a per-class basis (scheduled in 30-minute slots) and is composed of a minimum pay between $6.00 - $9.00 plus (+) incentives. A teacher’s minimum payment will be determined by the teacher’s demo class performance, while bonuses and incentives are based upon a teacher’s monthly class participation and completion as a CLASS100 teacher.


CLASS100 offers teachers an extra bonus for performance, attendance and so forth:

—Attendance Bonus: $1 USD / class

—Preparation Allowance: $1 USD / class

—Positive Feedback Bonus: ordinary teacher: $50 USD per month; Star Teacher: $1 USD/ class (based on a monthly minimum of 50 classes and 90% positive feedback)

—Training Allowance: 3 hours of basic salary (after completion of probationary period)

—Substitute Teacher Payment: basic salary + $2 USD

—Referral Bonus: $60 USD for each successful teacher referral; paid after the referral finishes the first month of teaching

Teachers will be re-evaluated for a raise at the point of contract renewal. If a teacher teaches enough classes and also received 80% positive feedback, the following positions will be available for promotable teachers:

—Star Teacher: teach “School Demo” classes which are important to bring more schools on;

—Trainer: help record demos, give training, and offer feedback about candidates to CLASS100;

—Lesson Guide Creator: create “Lesson Guides” and help teachers to prepare their lessons;

—Recruiter: assist in teacher recruitment, plus help candidates with demo classes and interviews;

—Mentor: observe teachers’ classes, give feedback about teaching, and mold them into professionals;

—Other position(s): record videos, write articles for CLASS100, etc.

(Listed positions will depend upon a teacher’s abilities, interests, and strengths. All candidate teachers must pass CLASS100’s training. Teachers in these positions may also be needed for other jobs and tasks for CLASS100.)

CLASS100 teachers are independent contractors and responsible for their own taxes in accordance with their individual tax jurisdictions, federal and/or state laws.

CLASS100 pays teachers directly through Bank deposits.
